New York is having a tough rollout. After weeks and trying ten+ times a day I am scheduled for shot number 1 March 11. It's not anywhere close but I feel like I hit the lottery. Can't wait. Several family and friends all over the USA have gotten one or both shots and usually a sore arm. Achy. Tired. Nothing else and nothing serious.

I grew up in New York and have many friends still there that are over 70 and nobody I know there has gotten first shot .

It's really ridiculous. I feel so bad for people who have no time or are not really savvy on the computer. It's a nightmare.

George you are a man after my own heart ...........
I owned my own cable and networking business for 28 years, retired 7 years ago and my first cellular was a "bag phone" remember those George? , It was a PHONE. Only one it town selling them at the time was "Pep Boys". Got my first smart phone about 5 years ago and still used it as a phone didn't even activate wifi on it.

I know this is crazy but I wanted to dance. Best feeling ever to feel you are on the other side of this nightmare pandemic. I feel great. Had no side effects at all. Not even a sore arm!
Great to hear ..........
It's the second one that gets you, arm was sore for almost a week, but is a small price to pay for the benefit you get. Great thing is that once you get the first one the second one is on the books good to go, unless they run out. If they do it right as supplies thin they reserve stock for second shots that will take priority over first shots, at least that's what they do out here.
