Happy Hump Day myLot

Happy Hump Day to everyone here on myLot. Wednesday, Hump Day, as many of us know it as, that day in the middle of the week. Its all downhill from here until the weekend. With the holidays falling on my days off (weekends) they are giving me this Friday off for Christmas Day, and next Monday off for Boxing Day. I will have a nice long 4-day weekend. The next work week will only be 3 days long as they are giving me my New Years Day Stat on that Friday. So only today and tomorrow left of work for me for this week. I went to the mass vaccination center last evening for my appointment for my booster shot. As creeped out as I felt being in a large group, even properly physically distanced, it felt good to get out of there. My only side effect, part of which is my own fault as I am a side sleeper, is a sore arm.

I am glad you have a 4 day weekend, you have all the time to recover from your booster. I hope your arm will be fine soon.

Thank you. My shoulder is sore from sleeping on it, I have a knot in it, which I am trying to work out, that will help the sore arm sensation.

@Juliaacv - A sore arm is unpleasant, but I have heard that the sore arm happens to all those vaccinated.

It's nice that you'll be able to have nice long weekends and shorter work weeks this week and next. Glad to hear that you were able to get your booster.

Thanks, when I looked at my schedule around Christmas I thought it looked like forever until I would get my days off. I am glad that the time has passed so quickly. We are super busy right now, so time off is appreciated.

@Juliaacv Time can fly by quickly. Especially when it's busy. Probably a good thing that you're getting the time off now, if it's so busy.

It was a painful experience when I went to get my second dose. I stood on the queue for more than six hours.

Oh that is an awful long time. We have to make appointments here, and you are not to arrive more then 10 minutes before your appointment, although I was there about 12 minutes early. You take a spot in line, they ask you the usual questions, if you have had any symptoms, been in contact with anyone with covid, or have travelled outside of the country, after you answer, they give you a disposable mask and ask that you wear that and remove your own mask. Then you are directed in the line up to a registrar, from there you are taken 1 at a time to a person who will locate a vaccinator and take you to them for your shot. It is all done very smoothly and no waiting except for the reaction wait time which is now 5 minutes.

I just took my third shot which is the first booster shot. They are starting on giving the fourth booster shots to the elderly and those with severely weakened immune systems already.

Enjoy your holidays and because of the rush in vaccination centers we senior citizens go to private hospitals or diagnostics centers to get vaccinated where we have to pay.

I’m ready for some down time from work. I received the phizer vaccines for my first and second shots but the booster was moderna. They are using the phizer shots for the children. I could have had a phizer shot from a pharmacy but you have to wait outside in line so I didn’t register there but the next time I will there are side effects to the moderna shot.

My hubby just told me that I tossed and turned and moaned quite a few times last night. I apparently never do that, so maybe the serum in that syringe made a little wierd overnight. Right now I am totally exhausted, I will sleep well tonight.
