    Glad I have my COUNTY to fall back on. I got hold of the spokesperson for the Tennessee Valley VA and got the following in a secure message:

    This Va Clinic has to have the vaccine brought to the clinic the day it is being administered to the Veterans . We are giving veterans age 75 and above . We are looking at health risks and trying to get veterans scheduled now . We can only do so many when we have a clinic day for this . Right know we have one day set up and that is 02/03/2021 . It is for age 75 and above . We are only giving the veterans no spouses at this time.

    Seems there is no standard of care for the VA........

    When YOU are in N.W. Georgia, find your way on Hwy 136 outside of Calhoun, to my mountain top. Camp or RV awhile up on top of the hill and find the peace that I do..........God bless

    Shot

    To quote that annoying little redhead Annie “ tomorrow tomorrow “ 2nd prick March 3rd
    Getting shot at Walgreens probably stuff leftover from the 35% or 37% of nursing home workers who refused vaccination, my wife and I thank you dumbasses!

    Finally many thanks to my wife who got us scheduled and friends who pointed us in the right direction.

    As more of us starting getting the jab (the UK term), there are a couple of things which might be helpful to know.

    It does seem that the second jab usually produces more side effects that the first one. My NP daughter in Oregon says that's because the first jab gets your body to begin developing immunity, and the second builds on the level of immunity the first one started. She said that Pfizer jabs tend to have fewer side-effects than Moderna jabs. It also seems that the greatest level of immunity occurs beginning about 10 days after the second inoculation. That said, it's still possible to be a carrier, so mask wear continues to be important.

    The CDC has a system for monitoring side effects called V-Safe for which you have to register. I got jab #1 this past Friday, and every day about 4PM I get a request from V-Safe to tell what my side effects are, if any. Here's the URL for V-Safe: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...ety/vsafe.html

    Wow, what a reaction to the Moderna! All good for the first twelve hours, then my shoulder started to ache like any other vaccine. I went to sleep and woke up two hours later to get up and use the bathroom. When I got up I was shiveing violently. I stumbled into the bathroom violently shivering the whole time. I attempted to pick up a cup for a drink but was shaking so bad, the cup flew out of my hand. I stumbled back to bed and laid ther shaking. I put my hand on my chest and I was burning up. I've had hypothermia bunches of times but have never shaken like that. This morning the fever has subsided, more aches and pains and not much appetite.

    The nurse that shot me said because I have had Covid19, that my reaction may be more significant. Of course she said but that's agood thing showing that the vaccine and antibodies are working. She also said that the booster will probably cause more of a reaction. Hope I can ride it out.

    Good luck to all as you're getting lined up for vaccine.

    I miss that about the Corps. Privates ate first, paid first, etc. Then NCOs, Staff NCOs and up. The concept of servant leadership is foreign to the corporate world.

    Here in Texas the state legislators and state senators, regardless of age or any other criteria except that they are special, jumped the line to be vaccinated. They have illustrated once again the quality of their character.

    I have noticed the same thing among my many friends: those who already contracted COVID seemed to have stronger reactions to the vaccine.

    I got vaccine #1 (Moderna) through the VA last week. My wife got vaccine #1 (also Moderna) through the US Army clinic at Fort Leavenworth this week. Neither of us had any more than a sore arm, about like we experience with a flu shot each fall.

    A friend got her 2nd Phizer vaccine a few day ago (Hospice Volunteer) and she had a bad reaction about 10 hours after the shot.
    At first she was freezing, then zerking uncontrollably, followed by partial paralysis and not being able to talk.
    The good new is she felt fine the next day.
    She did not have Covid that she knew of.

    Today, at Covid-19 shot center, the screener asked me if I'd ever had a reaction to a vaccine. I told her yes, in 1955, at grade school, when they surprised me with a polio shot...I cried!
