[QUOTE=Xyzzy;575233]We are scheduled to get our second dose on Wednesday.

The weather is scheduled for rain that day. We ride a motorcycle and we don't want to get wet and cold. (The hospital is 100 miles away, so 200 miles round trip.)

Should we get the second dose a day early or a day late?[/QUOTE]They [i]schedule[/i] the weather where you live? I'm impressed! Where I live, they only try to [i]forecast[/i] the weather, and the forecast for two days ahead is iffy.

If you can actually reschedule your shot for a day earlier, that might be the easiest solution. Kind of depressing in a way that that would be an option, though - when I got my shots, the clinic was booked solid pretty quickly for both rounds, so it was either go when I was scheduled, or wait until the next round.

I'm just thinking - what the weather will be tomorrow is probably significantly less uncertain than what it will be on Thursday. Be a shame to reschedule and get rained on anyway...

[QUOTE=retina;575236]The UK is delaying the second dose in order to get more people with the first dose. So I'd guess that it doesn't matter much if you leave it till next week, or next month.[/QUOTE]Yup. It doesn't much matter as long as you get the second within 3 months of the first.

For the avoidance of doubt: that's what the medics say and I'm just repeating it. Please don't be tempted to shoot the messenger.

A day late would be better than a day early:
[url]https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/clinical-considerations.html[/url]

"The second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible, but not earlier than recommended (i.e., 3 weeks [Pfizer-BioNTech] or 1 month [Moderna]). However, second doses administered within a grace period of 4 days earlier than the recommended date for the second dose are still considered valid. If it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval and a delay in vaccination is unavoidable, the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be administered up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. Currently, only limited data are available on efficacy of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines administered beyond this window."

[QUOTE=MooMoo2;575211]I got both doses...
March 4 - had a really sore arm and fatigue...
March 5 - ...that sore arm, which I could barely move. The injection site appears to be slightly red and swollen.
March 24 - got hit hard by the vaccine's side effects. Endured fever, chills, headache, fatigue, and loss of appetite throughout the entire day. Going from the couch to the bathroom felt like climbing a mountain.

April 3 - Ran 1500 meters in a personal best time of 4:40.52: [url]https://www.tfrrs.org/results/67606/4169866/APU_Invitational_and_Distance_Carnival/[/url]

[QUOTE=MooMoo2]March 23 - got dose 2 in the afternoon in the same arm. Ran in the evening and felt a bit tired, but had no other symptoms (this was similar to March 3).
March 24 - got hit hard by the vaccine's side effects. Endured fever, chills, headache, fatigue, and loss of appetite throughout the entire day. Going from the couch to the bathroom felt like climbing a mountain.
March 25 - symptoms were mostly but not completely gone. Weirdly enough, my arm wasn't as sore as it was two days after the first dose. Went on a 20 minute run and felt similar to the evenings of March 23 and March 3.
March 26 - no noticeable symptoms aside from a slightly sore arm
March 27 - no arm soreness or any other noticeable symptoms.[/QUOTE]

I am due for my 2nd dose in six days. The 1st was Moderna. I do not see why the local hospital, where I received the 1st dose, would change. The name is shown on the CDC card I was given.

I fear a lot of the things in the quote above. This may seem silly: The first shot was in my right arm. I am going to insist the second be in my left arm. I had one day of noticeable soreness a day after the first shot. Otherwise, I felt fine. and still do.

If someone was coming in for a second dose and they had gotten Pfizer, the official word was it was ok but they had to be consulted with by the on-site Pharmacist. Either one can be the second dose for the other.

Our site's official position is that they will match. In operations, they'd acquired mostly Pfizer now (and 2 of us got Moderna x2, and 2 others from our family got Pfizer x2), but the hospital keeps some offset Moderna for 2nd shots, and some J&J for people who are allergic to some component of Pfizer (it is not alum, something else, lipids probably).

I still attend internal townhalls (though my acute interest to vaccine is now greatly diminished - all kids* are protected). I did hear that they received clearance for mix-and-match as the last resort; FDA allows for it. Their best effort is aimed at matching shot 1 and 2.

* [SPOILER]I call them kids, though they are >25.[/SPOILER]

My actual kid is my biggest concern now. All of the adults in my immediate family have had both shots. I know outcomes for children are good but worry about currently unknown longer term effects.

Finally...
 
I'm scheduled for tomorrow morning. Happy! :chalsall:

Three hours in a very chaotic queue (Bajans don't do Time and Motion studies well), but I'm now "jabbed"! :tu:


All times are UTC. The time now is 07:42.
