There is no vaccine for that.

For those who got a jab, how are you feeling? I got mine Friday evening and my arm was super sore Saturday, and also woke up with a slight headache. Arm feels much better today.

I got mine Thursday. Minor arm pain, and I felt pretty tired on Friday, though still managed to do a bunch of landscape stuff so it didn't put me out of commission. Just felt slow and tired.

The arm pain is likely from the needle, not the vaccine. I’ve had intramuscular injections before and they all hurt like hell. I got the Pfizer shot Friday aft.

I had a headache yesterday like I drank about 8 beers the night previous. Although I did drink 8 beers the night previous, so I can’t tell either way.

Feel fine today.

Girlfriend got her first shot today (she's in 2B).
Kudos to the nurse at Telus who made her feel comfortable, told her she didn't have to get the shot if she didn't want to today, and generally assuaged any lingering fears she had after we talked about it.

I just got home from Telus. Things were moving well. There's a lot of stations there but most weren't in use, which I guess is the plan because they opened with room to expand.

I got the Pfizer. No side-effects other than a bit sore where the needle went in, but they said if I have any, it will probably be 24-48 hours afterward.



I am very happy right now.

We got our jabs Saturday at Telus. My wife and I are both 2B. She also works in AHS staffing, so has a bit of insight to the expansion at Telus. When we were there, there was 16-20 immunizers. Monday, they go to 120. Plus all the associated clerical, vaccine runners, people directing traffic, etc. It is really going to ramp up, I hope they get the media in there to show how much capacity and how organized it all is. Should help tip people to make appointments, 2C opening as well.

They're pulling staffing in from all over AHS, it is a big mobilisation.

Thanks so much for this advice! I dropped by my local Shoppers this morning and they booked an appointment for me for Friday morning.

Just finished bringing my wife home from dropping her off at Telus (she is in group 2B). She got Pfizer, was in and out in 30 min, and reported it being very efficient and organized. One thing that made me happy to hear was the the initial admitting person did ask what brought her in today, obviously screening for eligibility.

Just got the vaccine (i'm in 2b) this morning at Telus...10am, it was pretty quiet tbh...much more than I had expected, though it was the weekend.

there was no 'snake line' in the lobby before entering the area where the shots are administered; it was a couple ahead of me and myself.

Took like 10 min from the time i entered to the point I got the shot...then sat in the waiting area for the recommended 15min.

In talking with the people there, its generally quite a bit busy, so probably just the weekend slow period, they expect it to be 10x busy this upcoming week.

Really well laid out and friendly and efficient - though i am sure that's due to lack of a lot of people today. Still, everyone there did a great job.

Arm is a little tender, but no other noticeable effects
