Asking for a friend who says he made his second appt, but now that he has the card and knows what it looks like, what's to stop him from saying "Yeah, I showed up that day. You guys used stickie-notes and pens and tablets, you probably lost my data along the way, but here's my card." I, err um mean HE may be inclined to laminate said paper proof as well, since it's getting pretty beat up already in my errr um HIS wallet.

Yeah, that's the ticket. Here's your sign!

I'm 32 years old and in pretty decent shape. I have 1 round of Pfizer done so far. I felt pretty run down the first night, and then the 2nd and 3rd days/nights, my legs were extremely achey. I'm not a complainer, but man was that an annoying feeling.

My wife suggested I take Tylenol and that worked well. Took it hose two days to take care of the aches. Strange, but happy I got round 1 done

FWIW, NY State just lowered the age from 65 to 50 starting tomorrow. Glad that I got onto the waiting list for my shots last week, because the list is probably going to grow by a few months by lunch time tomorrow.....

Your little slip of paper wonít be accepted. If you want to get a Covid passport, youíll have to get the vaccine again once they get the computer tracking up and running.

Florida lowered the age to 50 this week... while I am out of town. Hope to get a vaccine next week when back, either Moderna or J&J, which are the 2 offered by the grocery store nearby.

Speculation at this point but how else are they really going to prove you have been vaccinated?

Depending on where you get it, your doctor may get notified to add it to your health records. Thatís what happens when I get a flu shot at Walgreens, so could see how the same would happen with this vaccine.

Wifey got her first one today. No side effects yet other than a slightly tender arm. So in a month we'll be done. Should make for a better summer this year.

No insurance involved for me

When wife got hers she offered up proof of insurance and they wanted nothing to do with it

Like I said, there were a bunch of tablets and a stickie note that followed me thru my first dose

There's lots of talk from the vaccine companies lately about additional doses for boosters or new Covid variants. It is seeming more and more likely that this isn't a one and done vaccine. It could go on for years.

This, I'm holding out for J&J non mRNA one....whats next ? smh

I'm a Physician so got it pretty early on thankfully. Just had a sore arm later in the day with both shots, was totally fine the next day. Some of my colleagues got sick for a day or two though.

Please get your vaccine once you qualify.

My brother had his vaccine last week and so far he is doing fine. No side effects, maybe because he lives a healthy lifestyle.

Right, same here. But whether it's the insurance company, my doctor or the Walmart pharmacy where I got my shot, who will aggregate that data into some official "passport" for travel. It will happen but who, the government? For now all we get is a simple printed card which is easily forged... and now that Krispy Kreme is giving away donuts to those who can show they were vaccinated, you know folks are working to make fakes of that little card!!

I don't like KK!! And I didn't even get a lolli in the tent

I had 2 margs last night with dinner, first I've been off-call since getting jabbed. If that's going to be a side effect (I felt like SHIT at 0215) I ain't getting a second one.
