    Thank you for doing this! I was in remission from Meniere's until I got Covid. I haven't been the same since. Now I have some torture tests coming up. I'm so glad people are willing to help and that means you!

    Bulldog - thank you for being a vaccine guinea pig! Glad your results have bee promising! Funny thing about your reaction to the second shot - I had my Shingles vaccine back in Oct and first one was fine, no reaction...arm was definitely more sore than the flut shot arm. But just had the 2nd shot and definitely got the fatigue, and slight flu like symptoms. Didn't expect a reaction since the no issue with the first one. Glad you are doing well!

    I had zero issues. If I could take the vaccine I would not hesitate. My wife is in medicine as well and she should be getting vaccinated any day.

    good luck

    Funny you ask that, I checked the VEDA website yesterday for guidance on the risks of getting Covid. Takeaways: 1)They need to update the site, as the recommendations still say there is no evidence masks protect the wearer! (No updates in that section since July) 2)The one personal story of a duel Ménière’s/Covid-19 sufferer is harrowing. If I had the chance to take the Moderna vaccine, I’d already be in line. So, if any of you don’t want yours, please do share with the rest of us! ;)
    Bulldogs, thanks again for posting your experience. I applaud anyone who is brave, and uses their experience for the greater good.

    I had my Pfizer vaccine yesterday, Jan 10 2021. I had it about 10 a.m. and sort of had "the chills" in the afternoon and evening. Today I feel fine, arm a bit sore but no biggy.

    It is a wonderful relief to get this vaccine, I was absolutely elated to be one of the lucky ones to get an appointment. They made another appointment for the second shot 21 days later.

    Canada, but in Florida for 6 months. The Florida government is generously providing the vaccine to anyone 65 and over, plus health care workers.

    What County are you in? I am in Volusia County but have not gone for the vaccine yet because it has been so unorganized. Waiting for things to settle a bit. Happy for you!

    Firstly - the vaccine is a disaster for one's golf game, but then so is Covid LOL

    Brevard County - it is being dispensed by two hospitals and the County DOH - if you can get an appointment, online, the rest goes extremely smoothly and well organized. I wouldn't wait, it is a wonderful feeling of extreme relief.

    Good luck June! I'm glad you could get an appointment - they are not easy to get.

    golf? You had a sore arm or you have to blame something for your rising score ?

    :) My arm was fine :) But I think all those new antibodies running around in my system totally messed up my timing causing some terrible hooks and ball losing pushes Putter wasn't working either. ;) My worst game of this winter season and it just couldn't be my fault so it has to be the vaccine, right?:rolleyes:

    Living in Alabama has turned me into a, “vaccine denier.”(no, not really!) Do they really exist? You’d never know it here...
