I'll be in line for the vaccine the minute it is offered. Both my primary & lung docs say that I am high risk, so will be in group 1C. Our state estimates late February. It is possible mine will come earlier if my daughter has to go back into her school, as I will then be a "front line worker" – her daycare provider.
My other daughter is a telehealth nurse, on the front lines of hearing any reactions in health care workers and long-term care residents. A few have reported feeling bad, mainly after the second dose. A sore arm or a few days feeling ill with fever and or aches are not considered severe – this is evidence the body is "listening" to the vaccine and building an immune response.
Caution is still being urged for people prone to SEVERE ALLERGIC reactions to prior vaccines – anaphylaxis, swelling of face tongue, lips, etc. Those people should consult their doctor before getting the vaccine.
