  1. I accessed it through the vams cdc site. Our state used vams to make appointments. I think 10 states used it the rest (we were told) used their own vaccine database. I don't know how or if individual states connect with the cdc sites. This is the site I accessed our records and got my 'vaccine certificate'. https://vams.cdc.gov/vaccineportal/s/login/?ec=302&startURL=%2Fvaccineportal%2Fs%2F This might be a good question to ask if you live in a state that didn't use the CDC site to schedule appointments...will your data (or has it already been) uploaded
  2. Got my 2nd Moderna shot today, so glad it's done. We were about 40 min in total here in Concord NH! I think it's already been said on this thread that you shouldn't laminate your vaccination card... we were told in case there is a booster shot sometime in the future. At any rate we wanted to protect our cards so we ordered these: https://www.amazon.com/KEYLION-Horizontal-Waterproof-Resealable-Multiple/dp/B06XVN1HDR/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1LTLG0C7T8CNZ&dchild=1&keywords=keylion+10+pack+large&qid=1614891934&sprefix=zealion+10+pack%2Caps%2C166&sr=8-1
  3. or just come up to NH...and I think Maine and VT are doing pretty well too. I don't know why MA is having a problem but you're not alone...
  4. I think a lot of people are going to wonder about the effectiveness of vaccines. Below are, I think, important points I found in a LiveScience article that hopefully clarifies some of these concerns. I think the comparison between these vaccines and other ones in the 3rd paragraph is especially interesting. ------------------------------------------------------------ You have likely heard that Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine efficacy is 95%, Moderna's is 94% and Johnson & Johnson's is 66%. But what do these numbers actually mean? One common misunderstanding
  5. Thanks for posting this, I guess it's no surprise that the QE is in Australia for the season. It will be interesting to see what the QV and QM2 are up to.
  6. Who, what, where, how? Any details? thanks
  7. LOL, he added the first and 2nd shots together to get 40%...that's real politician math!
  8. In our state of New Hampshire things are going pretty well but we are a very small state. There's an effort to home vaccinate those who cannot travel the distance to the various sites and it made me think there might be something like it in the San Diego area since it's a nationwide problem. I found the following story that might help, hopefully the link will work https://www.10news.com/news/coronavirus/in-depth-plan-in-the-works-to-vaccinate-san-diego-countys-homebound-seniors
  9. I wonder what the rule will be for those who have been vaccinated?
  10. Yes! I think you're right I hadn't thought of that.
  11. It's been eye opening to say the least to see how the states are doing things differently. We are a small state (NH) and I think I saw on the news tonight that we're getting 21,000 doses this coming week. The nationwide distribution of doses is based on the state's population and we have something like 1.4M people in the whole state. They hope to be through the 1B folks (age 65 and over) by April. Then hope to schedule the next phase (2A teachers) and (2B 50-64 yr olds) sometime in March for appointments later in the spring. The state estimates that there are about 25,000 peo
  12. Here in New Hampshire we have a registry, no first come first served. For example this is how it worked for my husband and I aged 74 and 65. We are in the 1B category and registration opened for us on Jan 22nd with shots given starting Jan 26th. After registering you get an email and with a link to schedule your appointment. (The state is working to combine registration and appt for future categories). My husband and I got appointments for Feb 2nd (a snow storm was expected that day so the state very efficiently moved us up to Feb 1st, same time same location). Oth
  13. We've done world cruises and shorter cruises on both lines. DWhit's comment about the itineraries is true, HAL has more interesting cruises IMO (because they have more ships). However, if both lines were doing the same itinerary I would pick Cunard. The speakers on board are always great. I choose which world cruise to take based on itinerary alone so in 2015, 2018 and 2020 I was with Cunard. In 2017 and 2021 I was/will be with HAL. I'm not a foodie so that's a wash for me. The crews are always good although I might give a slight edge to HAL on that count. On w
  14. One of the things all these vaccines seem to have in common, regardless of their effective rate, is that they are able to reduce the severity of the virus. Not ever getting the virus is the best outcome of course but a really close 2nd is getting it and having it feel like a cold or mild flu. We all get those all the time. The virus will be with us forever, including all the variants, we're going to have to learn to live with it and that includes cruise lines if they ever want to sail again. I don't think an all or nothing approach will work. None of these vaccines are 100% effe
  15. I read that too. Since none of the vaccines are 100% effective I think the more important thing is that it can prevent serious cases. This virus will be with us forever, like others. The difference is the number of people needing hospitalization and of course the number of people dying. If those two things go down, we can live with it.
