      Got the 2nd jab of Pfizer last week, and it HURT! Possibly due to the difference in experience and technique, as the first one was done by a woman apparently in her mid- to late 50s, and it was so amazingly painless that I wondered if the needle actually went in, whereas this 2nd one was done by a woman probably not older than 30.

      In addition to any difference which may have existed with the injection technique, there was a difference in how they told me to position my arm. Both were done at a drive-through tent; the first woman told me to rest my arm on the armrest of the car door, but the woman last week told me take it off the armrest and let it hang vertically by my side.

      With the first painless jab, the shoulder developed soreness a few hours later, but with the second jab it was immediately sore. Apart from that localized soreness, there were no ill effects or fatigue.
      My first Moderna hurt quite a bit when they jabbed me. Barely felt the second. I think sometimes we just get unlucky and they poke a nerve or something.

        We have been having a pretty substantial fourth wave of COVID in Washington state. It is thankfully starting to go back down, but slowly. It was only a few weeks ago that a hospital near me had to cancel elective procedures because they had a lot of COVID patients combined with an unexpected baby boom.

        I think we'll be "ok", but the governor gleefully dropping the mask mandate, despite the current rates, will probably result in a slower drop in rates than we would have seen if we kept masking through the end of June.

        • Lane County OR up to 62.08% vaccinated as of 2:00pm announcement today. Should be well over 65% by June 18 so let's have a big party at Hayward.

            Oh yeah...the governor started a lottery for motivation which has worked elsewhere...

                Not surprising....the strategy of primarily isolation works only so long.

                    ‘No vaccine!’: Woman arrested for allegedly driving through vaccination site in protest, nearly hitting workers

                    As a coronavirus vaccination tent was set up in the hope of inoculating more residents in Maryville, Tenn., sheriff’s deputies working at the site this week saw an SUV speeding their way — and the person behind the wheel wasn’t slowing for a shot.

                    Instead, Virginia Christine Lewis Brown was protesting the vaccine by driving her Chrysler Pacifica “at a high rate of speed” through a vaccine tent in a mall parking lot, police said.

                    “No vaccine!” she yelled Monday as she plowed through the tent, according to witness accounts to sheriff’s deputies.

                    Brown, 36, was arrested for driving through a vaccination tent and “placing the lives of seven workers in danger,” the Blount County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday. She’s been charged with seven counts of felony reckless endangerment. Tennessee attorneys claim each count carries penalties that include a possible prison sentence of 1 to 15 years and a fine of up to $10,000.

                      It's because they are still denying aerosol transmission and not taking proper precautions at the quarantine hotels. What worked with the original strains doesn't work as well with the more contagious strains.

                              • I'm vaccinated (J&J) but plan to add a Moderna shot soon. Masks seem pretty much gone in the grocery stores and restaurants. Most Floridians don't seem to know that we still rank #1 in new cases and top 3 in new deaths. The Gov decided to not have any stats on a daily basis, just weekly. Today I read 6 of the rescuers in Miami condo collapse have tested positive. All my friends have been vaccinated so tomorrow we party.
