If you can, do it, the more shots that go into arms the better.

Yeah. Better into an arm than into the trash.

I said in the beginning, just show up at closing time.

I know several people that have received it by doing just that.

Where exactly are the vaccine sites?

got first shot of moderna yesterday, someone that works at the vaccination site put me and my SO in their system, SO got a voice mail and I got a text, then the person working at the site called and said come get shots. Apparently the day before the site was slammed but yesterday they were slow, I suspect problems with their web scheduling system.
I was informed later that the site had 6 dose left and were calling anyone to come get a shot, the person that works there already got their 24 yo son both shots and yesterday his mid 20's GF got hers because doses leftover and she was close enough to come get.

While this is all anecdotal, it seems that the distribution system has a doses vs scheduling issue and that may lead to too many people one day and not enough the next.

Hanging with Dad. He had shot 2 at 3pm. So far no problems. His bro had a heart freak out that sent him to ER.

Looking good.

He did ask when it would be covering his ass so he could safely go out and be around friends.

Hopefully he's not too bad tomorrow. It takes a good 12 hours or so for any immune reactions to kick in.

I think I read two weeks after the second vaccine one should benefit from the full immunity effects.

Saw on the news last night that the two shot vaccines reach 95 percent effectiveness six to eight weeks after the FIRST shot while the one shot vaccine reaches full effectiveness after two weeks.

Has there been any additional information about the actual effectiveness of the vaccines?

The way Pfizer changed their numbers so rapidly after the announcement of their competitor left little doubt that the 95% was pulled out of somebody's ass.

I know someone working at a vaccination site and it seems like they have days when people scheduled for shots don't show so at the end of the day their looking for arms, so this person is asked at the end of the day if they know anyone that can get there in 25 minutes to get the unused shot.
While I was waiting the 15 minute post shot period a 30 something male came up to ask about left over shots and was told that's not happening but then was told to go to the next station to be sure. He didn't leave before I walked out so I'm guessing he got a shot.

Hope your Dad is doing well today. He can take a Motrin if he needs it.

Great news, Budman! I'm sure it's a relief for you. My parents (late 80's) are scheduled for next week.
