MAC and getting the COVID vaccine

I'm in the 1b group which is next but I haven't heard anything about how to get it. I figure 3-4 weeks before I have both doses and then 2 weeks before it is effective. Then I will have my ct scan and also the mri I was supposed to have in December for something on my pancreas. Two years ago, at Christmas, I had to call 911 and was in the icu for 3 days and the hospital for 14 more with what started out as a cold, I am more afraid of the virus than anything else, including the vaccine. Can't wait to get it.

rits I feel the same way after a similar experience. The E M T s worked on me for a half hour trying to reduce my heart rate with medication before they even took off for the hospital. My fever from pneumonia was 104 which caused my heart to race to an unbelievable rate and they just couldn’t seem to regulate it. I was in the icu for a couple days f days then sent to a special floor

I have bronchiectasis and 3 autoimmune conditions. And I'm with you. I'm tired of being a prisoner in my own home with an 18% positivity rate for covid in our area and poor control of masking- northwest Indiana. Waiting & waiting for information because I surely would love to know when and where we can receive this because they can't put this in my arm soon enough. I have survived several bouts of pneumonia, a severe reaction to block drugs administered at surgery last year and have autoimmune conditions. But still, I would get this vaccine without hesitation. I need my life back.
