Re: Have you had the Covid vaccine?

it took awhile, and a lot of effort, but we're scheduled to receive the first shot (in a couple of weeks). meanwhile, the extended wait, for the second shot, is worrisome.

Re: Have you had the Covid vaccine?

So just a little tip for those who are waiting for their shot.  If you are over 60, show up at a local Shoppers or other drug store that is giving the vaccine.   Most that I have heard of have openings that are not being filled.  Don't call and ask, show up.   I did and got the shot within 45 minutes.    They won't tell you about the openings over the phone, but in person, there is a good chance you will vaccinated.    Did not hear this from me.

Re: Have you had the Covid vaccine?

I got AZ at 11 am this morning at the Collingwood drive thru vaccine clinic . At 8.05 pm I am experiancing a mild headache and some numbness in my lips and tongue. This has been the case since I got the jab.

With apologies to Lorne, the admin over at the Oldies Music Board (from which this is pilfered), if you want to talk great puns, they probably don't get much better than this:

Re: Have you had the Covid vaccine?

Newstalk 1010 host Jim Richards tweeted today that he has received his first shot at one of the larger pharmacies in his neighbourhood ( which I believe is leslieville? )

Jim said the pharmacist told him that "I was the only person there to get vaccinated in two hours."

Hats off to Jim and everyone who works in radio for keeping the conversation moving forward, and letting their listeners and Twitter followers know what's going on, and where there are available vaccine openings. The advice given by wise big yellow board members to just walk in and inquire seems to be "shot on". 🤞💉

Got mine two weeks ago. Removed the patch from my arm tonight.

Re: Have you had the Covid vaccine?

on a related note, one of our extended family members (second cousin, living near allen road's 401 exit) and his wife came down with the "new" version of the virus last week. he's isolating at home and his wife passed away, in hospital, sat. morning (he didn't get to say goodbye).
meanwhile, i saw a few of my neighbors chatting with other neighbors (and their kids), today with no masks and less than 6 feet apart. people have to start realizing "this ain't a joke.... it's real... and it will just keep spreading if we all get "comfortable".
oh yeah, I forgot to mention. our grandson's second grade class had a student testing positive a week ago (here in whitby). our grandson lives with us so needless to say we were left wondering and worrying... until we all received the "all clear".
...and so it goes.

Re: Have you had the Covid vaccine?

Condolences to your family. It probably doesn't help to know you're not alone in experiencing this tragedy. More vaccine and more due diligence are the answers. We hope you guys will be OK. I still don't like the four month delay between shots, however. Seems politically motivated and not what doctors or the manufacturers suggest.
