The day of the 2nd shot I was fine but the two and half days afterwards I felt I'd been hit by a truck with the aches and pains. Doing ok now but was really hoping it was a two shot deal and done. Guess I should have known better.
The very best things about the vaccines is they do not keep you from getting covid , supposed to keep you from getting very sick if you do get it but many all ready catch it and have minor symptoms . Also good for you as you can still spread it so keep that mask handy , booster shot in 6 months maybe you won't get sick from that one . Thanks for being the guinea pig and to all the others that go get this shot right away . Thanks for doing your parts in this experiment .

Wife and I are both 65 and received our second Moderna vaccine 6 weeks ago. Case loads where we live are way down and life here is returning to normal. We actually went out to dinner last Saturday for the first time in over a year. Still wear masks in crowded indoor spaces. I expect booster shots will be required as long as large segments of the population remain unvaccinated and variants continue to evolve.

DW and I both got our 1st Moderna shot last Thursday. The administering place said they had been giving the 2nd shot in 28 days from the 1st but had been recently been advised by Moderna to stretch that out towards the 42 day window. Our 2nds are scheduled for 35 days from the 1st.

I'm hopeful that is helpful for long term but if we need a booster, so be it.

DW had a slight black and blue mark at the injection spot (now gone) but neither of us had any other symptoms. We'll see what round two brings.

PA is one of the worst COVID case states in the US. Her and I are doing our part to change that.
I'll be 65 in one month and th DW will be 65 later in the year.

Nice. I just drove through Cedaredge a couple days ago heading up the Grand Mesa. We're formally from Salida, moved to FL for a couple years to assist elderly relatives, now settling in Montrose as we really love the western slope. Maybe someday we'll meet up!

Cheers

We did finish our trip South around April10 in New Braunfels Tx. We spent around 10 days there and enjoyed ourselves. I do have a few pics to post if I can get caught up on everything here at home. The DW and I got our second shots of the Pfizer Vaccine on March 10 in the Rio Grande Valley. That sure was a big relief. We still practiced all the safety guidelines and made it home healthy. Hope everyone is still staying safe. Everyone should get the shot so we can be done with this.

So glad to see that some are enjoying traveling across the USA. As for the pandemic, please keep in mind there are those out there that have received both vaccine shots but we do not know if it even helped us. Because of exposure to Agent Orange and contaminated Camp Jejune drinking while in the Marines I developed one of the presumptive diseases. B-Cell Leukemia or (ALL) acute lymphoblastic leukemia Philadelphia Positive.
When diagnosed they gave me 3 to 4 months to live without a stem cell transplant. Lucky for me my older brother Navy Chief Dave was a perfect stem cell match. So Feb. 22, 2017 I received a stem cell transplant. Will not go into the year of treatment and still take pills daily. But people that must take anti-rejection medicine daily that works by suppressing our immune system. My Oncologist told me to get the vaccine ASAP but it probably will not help but hopefully may be 30% effective.
Anyway just saying there are more people out there living life that are still very venerable to Covid so please keep social distancing and ware a mask for their sake.
After being snowbirds for 10 years being stuck in PA the last two due to this virus and continuing cancer treatments we sure hope this winter we can be snowbirds again but who knows.
When they told me I had 3 to 4 months to live one thing I thought of was all the memories of our travels around the USA and Canada over the years what memories thinking of they help me get through all I have been through. I was already a 100% disabled veteran before I got the (ALL) many of us Vietnam veterans are dying daily from Agent Orange exposure I was exposed to two things Agent Orange and was stationed twice at Camp Lejune where the drinking water is still contaminated to this day. But Marines now are issued bottled water and told not to drink the water.

Happy travels the RVing life is wonderful if you are thinking of taking that big trip some day, do not say some day DO IT NOW. Semper fi

Man real sorry for all you have gone through . anyone that feels venerable should indeed stay home and wear masks if they think it helps them . to the rest of the people go an enjoy life and know that mask doesn't do squat for you . it's so good now that they have opened our southern border to anybody and lets them go with out masks ,tests or vaccinations
