    My Mom got her second dose of Moderna today, and my Dad gets his second dose tomorrow through Houston Health.

    Got my first Pfizer dose today at Walgreens as I’m part of 1B here in LA County. When signing up they had a lot of availability for others located here that are looking.

    My mom gets her second dose this week, and my dad gets his first this week (would've been last week but for the winter storm). That much closer to some peace of mind.

    Per the CDC, if you’re fully immunized (both shots) for at least two weeks but no more than three months, you don’t have to quarantine after being exposed.

    I'm getting my second Pfizer shot Friday morning...I'm 1B in Denton County. We have such a smooth operation set up here, we're really lucky.

    I’m 1B in SF but it’s a **** show here - no available appointments. Hipsters snagging all the spots via various homespun apps. Yea for you kids.

    My Mom had full on flu like symptoms on her second Moderna dose for ~20 hours. Then...they just went away and she felt fine. My Dad got a little tired, but no other effects.

    The City of Houston operation at Del Mar stadium is really smooth. In and out quick.

    I have a relatively young friend who also had the really bad 20 hours after Moderna #2, even shaking all over he said, and then, just like you said, poof. All symptoms ended at once. He didn't even feel tired or anything after that.

    I was told that’s a good sign, a sign that your immune system is reacting and working. I was also told that older folks experience less symptoms because of this - their immune system is weaker.

    My mom was concern about the 2nd shot symptoms. Went even smoother than the first, which was just a sore arm.

    Got my first (Moderna) shot yesterday from City of Pearland...they have 7 lanes of traffic and it was as efficient as it could possibly be. I'm gathering more supply is opening up because, even though I am 1B due to health conditions, I did not expect to be able to get a shot anywhere near this early.

    Seems like Harris County is really tough to get.

    Sign up for the City of Houston health services text. They text you when they have slots open. I was able to get my parents vaccinated and I could have signed up other people.

    You just have to become immune when it comes to Covid and sports here in Houston

    For those willing to drive, Lumberton (1.5 to 2 hours from Houston) is open to the general public now. Having trouble finding 1A/1B takers, took my wife there today and it worked. You have to schedule in advance, but they currently have availability for next Wednesday and Friday. You do not have to be a resident of the county to get it.

    Not sure if this was mentioned already, but another good way to track down a vaccine - Follow @HebTracker on Twitter and receive notifications for all their tweets.
