Oh shoot, but did they cut it off AFTER you were in queue already?

Sounds like we have a CP party at Southport!

I was pretty surprised to see that. Everything I had seen previously said 100% effective for serious incidents.

That was true for the trials, but they weren't big enough or long enough to really determine that with any degree of accuracy. The good news is based on real-world evidence the protection is still very good, but it's not going to be 100%.

Got a call from the pharmacy and our appointments were bumped up to tomorrow morning instead of the afternoon!

Cant wait until Wednesday and when looooob updates this thread with a percentage threshold update and I can say, that 0.00000003% is all me baby!

this was going to be my reply as well. Unless she has a decades long history with her GP id be looking around. that's not an easy thing to do in alberta lately but if mine told me to "wait for the better one" i'd be questioning things from then on.

I have no idea how you guys are getting appointments. Any place I click to book just puts me on a waiting list

I turn 40 this summer, I just missed the cutoff by a hilariously small margin. Yeah we'll see where we're at by then

If you turn 40 this summer that means you were born in 1981 which means you make the cutoff.
It's birth year, not your age day of the shot.
You should be just fine to get the AZ shot.

Could be worse, I got there just a few minutes after they maxed out. Would've been there in time if a meeting hadn't run half an hour longer than scheduled.
