Paracetamol, or whatever your painkiller of choice is! Very helpful. ;)

That's scary.

 

Brussels had a massive gathering of younger folk yesterday due to an April Fool's prank. Why do the young think they are invincible?

 

Still sleepy... more so than usual. If this is the aftereffects of the first shot, it will be midsummer before I recover from the second in June. :P

it's now friday at 12:30 Cave time.  my first shot was about 4 p.m. Cave time on Wednesday, so.... 44ish hours now.  my shoulder soreness is juuuust about gone.  that was it for side effects for me.  i hope i have the same or none for the second shot.

I got my first shot a week ago Tuesday, the Pfizer 2 dose one.  If I had not watched her jab me I'd be worried I got a dud. 😄  No injection site swelling or warmth, no real soreness even hours later. If I pushed down on it it was a wee bit sore the next day but that was it. No side effects either. Though I know they're less likely on the first shot. I'm super grateful it went so smoothly and hope the 2nd one on the 15th goes as easily.

 

I hope for all of you waiting for yours that they also go just as well!  :)

Had a customer at work threaten to 'lose it' when I asked her to pull her mask up above her nose... so that's very fun.... glad I'm considered 'fully vaccinated' in a week.

i've given up telling customers their mask isn't on their nose. we've been doing this masking for almost a year.... if they haven't learned now they never will.  and so many masks are loose and falling off of faces as it is.  it's always the half-masked customers who pay with cash.  for that, i'm glad i have hand sanitizer at my register!

 

my second dose is April 21st, so i'll be fully vaccinated by may 5th. (Cinco de Mayo or Revenge of the Sith day? XD)

I got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine through my university almost 2 weeks ago.  I thought my arm would be sore, or I'd feel a bit sick, since many were complaining of that, but I had absolutely no trouble with it at all!! Hopefully the next dose goes just as smoothly.

We're a small business, and we don't accept cash at all. Except in exact change, dropped into a baggie, lol. Screw everyone else, we're gonna be as safe as possible!

ooooh..... i wish we did that!

i've had customers read some of our signs, like the one that says something about for safely, please try to use debit or credit cards.... and then they ask if we can take cash.  it's like "well, yes.... but do you have to?"

i work at a big box craft store, and there's a huge corporate office, so that's never going to happen.  we also used to have a sign on our doors that said we're an essential business for mask making supplies.  (if that's the case, why did i get all my mask making supplies at the other big box craft store.... our competitors? XD

This vibes with me so hard because I used to work at a chain pet store with a prominent competitor, lol. I'm very glad I got out of corporate retail before the pandemic. Can't imagine.

We take cash. Pretty much only cash. Thankfully a local company here has made a sanitizer that my hands can cope with given that I use it a gazillion times a day! (The one the customers use, so far with no issues, makes my hands break out in a rash.)

it also looks stupid too.

(His 70th birthday will be in December - I wonder what will happen earlier: that his *current* priority group gets him the jab, or that he turns 70 and thus "qualifies" for the higher priority group's jab.)

Our fathers were born in the same year. :) Mine already turned 70, but as yet, he doesn't want to get vaccinated, especially not with AZ.

My 2nd Pfizer is scheduled for Sunday, right before my vacation.

 

I was off yesterday, but when I came in today, the store manager of the grocery store that I work in was scheduling employees for the J&J vaccine. We just got it here, and he wants the employees to get it before the customers do.

 

They did at least 11 people today. I didn't speak to pharmacist after 2 PM, so no telling how many she did.

Got my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday! Within the first 15 minutes after getting it, I had some problems with dizziness/lightheadedness and nearly blacked out. I've had that kind of reaction to other vaccines, though, so I'm not sure if it was the vaccine's fault or just me. Other than that first 15 minutes I've been fine. My arm aches a bit, but not enough to interfere with anything.

I had my first dose of the AZ vaccine almost a month ago here in the UK. I had a slightly achy arm for a few days and a very mild headache the following afternoon (which might not even have been vaccine related).  I'm due to have my second dose, all being well, at the beginning of June.

I worked at a fair for indoor hobby stuff, furniture and gardens (I work as entrance staff there to pay for my phD), the last fair allowed in Germany was like in October when the numbers were raising really quickly and we had so many people being openly hostile towards us.

 

1. They didn't get a Ticket for their small kids. It's for free, but the rules were that any person from 1 day to 100 years (really any person) entering the fair ground needs to be accounted for. So everyone had to have a Ticket registered with a contact information incase of an outbreak at the fair grounds. Small kids (below 12) had free tickets that were not individualised for the kids pricavy but linked to a parent, you just had to say how many of those you needed and you'd get it via the same mail as the regular ticket for free. A lot of parents didn't request kid's tickets and of course it was our fault that correcting this mistake led to them having to wait a couple of minutes.

 

2. In Germany you have to register at any place you visit in case of outbreak so that possible contacts can be sent into quarantine. Don't ask how many people complained they had to register.

 

3. Complaints that we had a  pre-check outside the premises. That was to ensure that only people with valid tickets enter check-in zone. To keep the entry building as empty as possible and minimize the chance of larger cluster of people

 

4. The number of people who wore masks on the premises but not in the entrance. Dude, we are humans too you know? So kindly wear the mask until you are safely outside the premises! And don't ask how many people just took down there masks the second there was no personnel visible. Some people had to be forcibly removed do to a number of complaints against them

 

5. Complaints on how few exhibitors and visitors there were. Well we do have a pandemic and it was a testrun to see if safe fair ist a possiblity. Someone had to try. Got a problem? Kindly stay away instead of ranting at us.

 

It was super annoying. Luckily we also had a lot of people thanking the employees for at least giving them as vendors or visitors a chance to see if a safe fair works. Sadly the numbers skyrockted after that so as of now no new feirs are scheduled.

That does sound frustrating but I'm glad you made it through safely.

 

I have one volunteer I have to keep reminding to not pull her mask down whenever she's speaking to someone. Of course, when one's speaking is the most important time to keep it in place so one doesn't spit at anyone. :rolleyes:

I got my first dose of Moderna almost a month ago. I get my second one on the 15th of this month. I am a little worried about how hard the second dose may hit me because I felt really off for the 4 to 5 days after getting the first shot. I do recommend to get the shot in your non-dominant arm because I was sore for a good week or so and had a lump the size of a softball and a bruise about the size of a 50 cent piece. It pretty much felt and reacted like a Tetanus vaccine. Keep in mind that I am wickedly sensitive to a crap-load of various drugs and medications. My allergy list is a good 2-3 pages long. So, I did really well considering I have a ton of allergies. A family member worked on the Moderna vaccine. A friend of mine did get the vaccine that you only have to get one shot of and she said it hurt like a ***** and she felt lousy after it. I think it is important that people get the vaccine so hopefully we can try to get back to what was normal. I would love to not have to wear a mask every time I go into a store or something. I DO wear a mask when I am in the stores and stuff, I just hope one day we won't have to. I think if people don't wear their masks they shouldn't be allowed in because I have pretty much every "disability" that would preclude me from having to wear a mask and I STILL wear one. It boggles my mind how people are so selfish and refuse to do what is for the good of everyone instead of just what they consider good for themselves.
