Sounds like where I am, in Arizona. And they just cancelled tons of appointments folks had for the next few weeks due to supply problems due to Texas.

I just don't trust them the have the right second dose to go with the first.

We have lung transplant patients here who cannot get the vaccination.

I read an article that said that they have determined that either second dose would do, but I know both of the hospitals I use have detailed tracking.

They were very careful here to keep track of what we actually got, right down to the dose and vial it came from. The card I have includes that information. While I suspect there will be mistakes made, I think they'll be very few and far between. I have friends in AZ who've gotten the shots and they have no such fears.

Exercise not only lets me live, it enables me to have a life.

The vaccination record card that I received has stickers that were taken off the vial used for my injections listing Manufacturer, dosage and lot number. This same information is also listed on my medical chart, one of the perks of getting my vaccination from one of my local hospitals vaccination sites.

Phase 1: Limited and/or scarce supply of COVID-19 vaccine doses are currently
available. Initial efforts are focused on reaching critical populations, ensuring
vaccination locations selected can reach populations, managing cold-chain
requirements, and meeting reporting requirements for vaccine supply and uptake.
Vaccine administration strategies in Phase 1 are divided into three sub-phases:
o Phase 1a
#9642; Hospital employees.
#9642; Long-Term Care employees and staff.
#9642; Other healthcare workers including first responders.

o Phase 1b
#9642; Persons aged 70 years and older
#9642; Teachers and school staff
#9642; Essential priority workers (as defined by ACIP and directed by the state)

o Phase 1c
#9642; Persons aged 65 to 69 years old
#9642; Persons aged 16 to 64 years old with high-risk medical conditions
12
#9642; Other essential priority workers (as directed by the Governor through the ADH
Secretary of Health/Director and defined by ACIP)

Texas. I was just curious. They opened up phase 1B here in January so I have had both my shots now. I think I just happened to be lucky and saw the news release saying who was giving the vaccines and happened to get on the list early. People that called after me couldn't get on it. It was at a pharmacy in a local food store chain.

My second dose was scheduled for this morning, until the hospital called to reschedule to next week. They didn't get their supply in, but are hoping to have it in a week. That give us more time for the snow and ice to melt so I can get the car down to the road. Can't complain about that.

Ohio is doing things differently. We are 1b, and that is now 65 and older a certain diseases that begin in childhood.

This is Day #3 after receiving Shot #2 of the Pfizer Vaccine. No side effects other than the a sore arm again. Thank goodness, I did not have a repeat of the Afib I had at the 48 hr. mark after Shot #1. I had been worried. At 3 days now, it would less likely to blame on the vaccine if it happens again. In retrospect, I had been on a 3-week solid regimen of 500 mg. Amoxycillin because of both COPD and because of a knee injury. The knee injury was at Week #3 at the time of Shot #1. It took until 6-1/2 weeks to totally close up (yesterday), meaning that it was a doozer of a fall onto my carpeting I had taken. Just maybe the knee injury and the antibiotic contributed to that AFIB episode. I won't know that answer, but so far so good at being totally vaccinated now!

I was wrong, we both have rashes on our backs. Nothing horrible, just itchy.
