    Our vaccination experiences

    It should be interesting according to my friend in Aruba I just got off the phone with. He said almost everyone he talks with is against taking the vaccine. He himself won't take it unless its required by his work...and even then some of them are talking about ways to get around that. My head is spinning, lol.

    Keep in mind they are trying to vaccinate only around 100,000 people. How many people in MA? 7 million? Heck there are over 400,000 people in my town in VA.

    The vaccination roll out here in Mass has had it’s challenges. We’re at the bottom when it comes to the speed in which it is being administered. That said, it’s a huge undertaking and they are starting to open large vaccination sites at Gillette stadium and Fenway Park so I am optimistic. It sounds like Aruba’s challenge is getting people to accept that vaccination is what is necessary.

    I wouldn't be too worried. When push comes to shove they will do it. Same exact thing happened in the Netherlands. As soon as the vaccines actually arrived and in the days leading up to the first injection, all of a sudden the polls started trending heavily towards being in favor.

    I’m dead last on any list. That’s fine. I’d rather see the people who need it most get it first (and hopefully it works without complications).

    I do understand I was just pointing out where I would fall. That being said I am sure its quicker in
    Aruba based on sheer volume...get it.

    Yes it is. There are certain groups of people that I am friends with that are 100 percent against the vaccine home and abroad...not me, sign my butt up!
    That said, I know 2 people who had the vaccine that had SERIOUS side effects for a short period of time. Spiked fever...never felt worse in their lifetimes..yep.

    Reactions are normal. I am sure any of us with kids remember all the shots our babies had to get. I remember I was supposed to give them Tylenol before going to the appointments and sometimes they still had a fever, redness and messy diapers and were cranky.

    As an adult, the Shingles shot(I've just had one so far) left my arm very sore.
