Two days ago I received my second Moderna vaccine. As expected I felt a little crappy the next day. Some chills and very fatigued. My husband had his second Pfizer vaccine the next day. He felt crappy today. Pretty much the same issues of tiredness and chills that I had. He also said he felt some body aches in the morning. I took Advil right after I got my shot and it did help. But the chills set in overnight for me. Today, I feel almost 100% back to normal. I went out and did some geocaching but decided to wait one more day before I went running.
Colorado now has a number of drive-thru clinics that don’t require appointments. That’s amazing! Back at the beginning of April it was so busy. I knew people driving up to Wyoming to get vaccinated. Now it’s pretty easy. It’s still problematic for people who don’t drive and I know in Denver they’re trying to address this issue.
Still, we could be doing better. My husband plays volleyball with a group of adults and most of them aren’t interested in getting the vaccine. We need 70% of the population vaccinated to reach herd immunity. At present Colorado is at 28.4% and the United State is at 27.2%. We opened it up to all people age 16 and over a few weeks ago. I’m hoping that more schools require it so we can see an increase over the summer.
