I'm not sure they were doing so great before. My parents' town hasn't had a dry cleaner for maybe 10 years, even the person who used to drive laundry to the dry cleaner in Sioux Falls stopped doing it. It's just not a thing anymore I guess.Yet another casualty of the pandemic: Dry cleaners are going out of business. So many livelihoods—and lives—destroyed.
I got the Moderna and all I had was the sore arm for both shots. Pfizer seems to be the predominate vaccine by far. Pfizer is a huge pharma company and they have partnered with another huge pharma company in Europe that is why they can produce so much more vaccine. Moderna is actually a small company and their research was done by Universities. That is how Dolly Partin gave a million dollars towards the development of their vaccine, it was through Vanderbilt University. They just don't have Big Pharma's production capabilities.I got the Moderna vaccine - the only one in my family to get it. Everyone else got Pfizer. They were lucky. I was SO SICK on Tuesday! No one else has gotten sick, just really tired. How about you?
Makes sense. When I got on the county site there were a lot more places offering Pfizer, but the Chicago area is pretty urban and can handle the extra cold storage. And it feels like most people I know got Pfizer, with a few Moderna and J&J thrown in.Pfizer or Moderna? Where You Live May Determine COVID-19 Vaccine
Which vaccine is more prevalent in an area depends on the location. Pfizer is the one that requires the ultra cold temperatures. Moderna also requires cold storage but not the ultra cold storage. Moderna is more prevalent in rural areas and small facilities.
I hope your mom and bros' have it. I'm like your mom. I had it a facility that had an ER and the Vaccine clinic wasI would say that among the people I know, it's been about 50/50 Moderna/Pfizer. I only know one person who got J&J, and that was at the clinic. . .but she's mentally ill/on disability and I suspect they're using the one-shot regimen for certain demographics they think won't come back for the second.
State stats say that about 225,000 doses of Moderna and 253,000 doses of Pfizer have been administered, not exactly 50/50 but fairly equal, so that seems about right. About 14,000 doses of J&J have been given. We reached the milestone of 50% of the population receiving at least one shot, and 35% have been fully vaccinated (whether J&J or 2 doses of a different one).
My mom is still hesitating :/. She's just convinced that she's going to have a massive anaphylactic reaction, even though she's never had an anaphylactic reaction to anything else before, including vaccines. She is talking about making an appointment at the hospital I had mine done at, it's an hour drive for her but she thinks a big hospital is a better place to have a reaction at. Oh well, it's an improvement that she's talking about it anyway.
My brothers are also hesitating. One is terrified of needles, and I'm not sure what the other's reasons are, he just said he's still thinking about it.
My dad completely refuses. A result of too much internet for him, I think.
I was wiped out Friday pm and all day Saturday and Sunday. So very tired and along with high pain levels, was a bad weekend.I had my second shot of the Pfizer vaccine on Friday morning. By Friday night I was feeling wiped out. Yesterday I had an itchy, sore arm, a headache and I was really tired. Same today, but the symptoms aren't as bad.
