I got my third last month through CVS  before they were told by CDC they could officially do the third. Easy peasy. No real side effects other than slight sore arm (less than 2nd dose) and I felt a little blah the next day. Third dose of the Pfizer is the same as the first two. I highly recommend that anyone who can get the booster.

 

We are waiting to see exactly who falls into the risk groups to see if we qualify.  We do not qualify based on age but I expect my DH will fall into a risk group.  I might fall into a risk group depending on whose list you look at but I am Moderna, not Pfizer, so I have to wait for now either way.

It is pretty crazy, the entire thing.  It reminds me of the Dr Seuss House in Alaska.  Just add one more level of craziness type of idea.

Jax Beach has oceanfront hotels and some across the street. Some pretty good restaurants. The beach itself is nice…plenty of sand and room to spread out. 
Other than that, I can’t think of anything to actually do!

  Palm Valley Fish Camp has really good food and is on the Intracoastal Waterway. 

Case Marina Hotel is oceanfront and has a rooftop bar. You’d need to check with them to confirm that it’s open. 
The beaches are about 15 miles east of 95. 
If you are driving south on 95, you can hop on 295 just south of Jax airport for the east side beltway. 
From there  you’d take Butler Blvd straight to the beach pretty quickly. It’s limited access and ends at A1A. 
From there, left would be Jax Beach, and right would be Sawgrass and a nice Marriott. 
I’d love to be heading to Pt Everglades fir a cruise!

 

 

Thank you so much for the information.

Charlie got his third Covid vaccine this morning.  Hoping for no side effects🤞

 

Keep us posted on that.   Bucky and I are going to get ours mid October.  Was curious on side effects, but I am guessing since we have already adjusted to that vaccine...may not be any but a sore arm?

I'm lucky that I qualified by being 65. Whether or not I am technically immune compromised I really don't know but based on some of the meds I take I fall in that list. At this point I'm glad that I was able to get it. CVS might have screwed up by giving out booster's before they were officially supposed to but I read on their website that they could give it out due to the Emergency Authorization Act and I acted on it. . For all I know I was in the group that they studied for the booster.

You will be fine.

 

That's my guess as well.  We are both Moderna though...so our timing of mid October will probably be about right.  No word on Moderna 3rd shots yet.  If we can't get it through CVS...or our local grocery store pharmacy...my sister has offered to give us the third dose.

I was the first of my close friends to get married.I was 23.One of my friends waited till age 66 to get married.

When I was 18 and 19, almost all of my friends were getting married. I actually had people ask me if I was worried. 

So I got engaged. Had one of those light bulb moments two months before the wedding when I realized I did not want to marry my fiancé!

So I broke the engagement. My parents put a nice little notice in the paper in the midst of engagement and wedding photos that my marriage would not take place. 
Oddly enough, I don’t remember being embarrassed; I started dating again, and one of the guys I was dating invited me to dinner with his family. His sister’s boyfriend was invited and he brought an old friend who had just come home from the service. 
I married the old friend!

We’re Moderna, and there’s no telling when they’ll approve a booster. 
The great thing is the report that Moderna is giving the highest immunity. 
That buys us a little time.

Pharmacies were authorized to give out Pfizer booster shots sometime in mid August for the immuno-compromised, no matter what age.     All good 🤩

Eric was notified by transplant doc sometime in August but he has been procrastinating.    next week he has visit with Doc and will see if she can give him booster, if she doesn't have it then we will stop at local pharmacy.    Walgreens in our area only carries Moderna but CVS and Rite-Aid have Pfizer.

Tonight Dick and I celebrated our 60th anniversary at Ruth’s Chris Steak House. 
We can’t eat like we used to, but everything we did eat was delicious. My ribeye was perfect, but I’ll be eating it for the next couple of days!

Lots of leftovers for both of us. 
or I should call them planovers.

I enjoy each and every one of you, love reading the minutiae of your lives, and feel like we’re friends, even though I haven’t met you. 
Mimi

Mimi, you've said exactly how I feel, only you stated it for me, and probably for everyone on this thread.  I believe we are all friends on here.  We surely share our thoughts and experiences on here, and isn't that what friends do?  Thank you, Mimi!  And, thank you once again, Dani, for bringing us all together.❤️

When was that?  Good to know the chain Pharmacies are giving them out.  I was not sure if Moderna was offered right now.  I know Pfizer was recently approved.  

 

We are both in the "golden oldies" as being over 65.

Thanks...I feel like I walked into a dream on this transfer.  Hope it lasts!  😉  

 

Ditto on the sentiments to Dani.  This is a healthy, feel good, thread to come home to. 🙂

Lenny, I'm so glad that all went well with your wife's surgery and that she's on home rehab.  What wonderful daughters you have!  It sounds like you are one lucky fellow!
