So today I got my second Moderna jab…

Apropos of nothing in particular, just priming you to be ready to put up with a a bunch of complaints tomorrow, probably.

    I felt achy and tired the day after my second Moderna shot but it was gone in a day. Small price to pay for a chance to hug my kids and grandkids again.

    I got the John’s and Johnson “one and done” yesterday and I feel like hammered shit.

    I got the J&J one dose last Friday and except for a sore arm, the only side effect I had was a minor lack of energy the next day.

    Must be nice, the soonest I can get the shots is in June. Leave it to the boy who would be prime minister, to screw the pooch.

    So far it’s not real nice. The things I do for my friends…

    I’m a hermit in the desert, of not much use to man or beast and very unlikely to either catch the disease or to be seriously harmed by it if I do. I would have preferred that someone else, almost anyone else, go before me. I just got the vaccine to keep peace.

    And anyway the fact that they seem to have so much of it here is kind of a mystery to me – might be connected to this being one of the poorest counties in the country and somebody wanted to feel like a do-gooder.

    It’s available in Pueblo County for over 60 and 2 things wrong with you. Like High blood pressure and overweight. Who could be perfect health and over 60? So yeah there’s plenty of vaccine in the state.

    That’s what I mean: I just had to assert over the phone that I was over 65. Nobody asked me to prove it. ‘Comorbidities’ were never mentioned.

    Joel, I know that you are not a fan of getting the COVID shots and I do understand you are doing it because you are a good guy. 🙂

    My point was that here I am in Canada, the land of socialized medicine and thanks to a failure in leadership, I’m forced to hunker down for a few more months. What galls me the most is that the do-gooders in Ottawa have given criminals in jail a higher priority at getting the shots than seniors like me.

    “ I would have preferred that someone else, almost anyone else, go before me. I just got the vaccine to keep peace.”

    Spoken (typed) exactly like the grumpy ‘ole hermit that you claim to be. 😀 But this reader thinks that your neighbors did you a favor.

    First, you do go to town, and you do interact with your neighbors and friends, so you’re not really isolated. Second, you are at a dangerous age for COVID. There is no guarantee that you will be among the lucky ones who are blessed with a mild case. Third, you live by yourself out in the boondocks, so getting truly sick can be a very dangerous thing.

    Relax friend, you will feel better tomorrow.

    Good lord! You people actually believe covid exists…

    Congrats! I’m one down as of Monday. Hope the side effects aren’t too rough this time around.

  12. Judy says:

    My answer is the same today as it was before. I quit volunteering for random shots of crap that makes me sick back when I was 18. And to be pedantic, this is not a vaccine, it is a gene therapy. But to each his own.

  13. bill says:

    I agree with Judy’s view, On the other hand I appreciate those of you who have received “the jab” and allow us to know of your experience. I find myself equally afraid of the disease and the cure. In my rural area, the twice a month trips to town observe more and more people who appear to have just stopped being concerned about the virus and have returned to their pre-covid lives.

To the stake with the heretic!
