You have up to 42 days, if that make you feel any better. 

I thought it was 30, that’s good to know. I’m not too worried about not getting it in time as much as I am with how mismanaged it got so quickly. I was able to provide them with the lot number of the vaccine from the card and the lady STILL didn’t believe I got moderna instead of JJ the first time I called and brought up the whole missed appointment thing.

It will be interesting to see what happens with my offices reopening the office plans. As of now, we are still planning to open July 13th with some strict guidelines in place but with numbers on the r

I helped a co worker get a second shot only at CVS. PA availability is weird, but if you try using Bear, DE as location, they had tons of appointments. Check out their site, it lets you select 2nd moderna, or second phizer. Maybe set up an appointment when you start getting close to the date if CCHD  doesnt give you that warm and fuzzy feeling.

I think this most recent downward trend is beginning to account for more and more of the general population being vaccinated. Hopefully it keeps going down until it levels off. All of our household (sans my 11 yo and 8 yo) are officially vaccinated.

Quick numbers here: 

Total Population of PA:  12,702,379

Adult Population eligible for Vaccines: 10,060,284

Adult Population Fully Vaccinated: 3,239,152

Percentage of Adult Population Fully vaccinated: 32%

Worst case scenario we can give 100k shots per day across the state which is probably fairly low, and we can be fully vaccinated as a commonwealth in 5 months.

We will never get to 100% with anti-vaxxers.

Anti-vaxxers in a few months will just be like people who ski in jeans. You can tell them to get snow pants all you want but at the end of the day they are the ones doing it to themselves.

Philly convention center has about 4,000 vaccine shots that will expire today or tomorrow and they basically opened it up to anyone and everyone. No appointment needed. Haven't read up on the fine print but it seems they are allowing anyone.

 

I don't get those who get the first shot and are hesitant to get the second..it makes no sense to me.

A lot of the decisions that some of these people make does not make sense to me...

I deal with the public so I understand.  The average person is pretty dim.

Finally got my first shot yesterday. Pfizer from LVHN at the former AC Moore store in whitehall. Had the shot in my arm within 5 minutes of walking in. It was busy but ran like a well oiled machine.

J&J tested at 74% effective at best at preventing catching the disease, so it wouldn’t be a big shock for it to be a positive test. They say it is 100% effective at preventing cases bad enough for hospitalization, which for the subject is the critical factor.

I ended up scheduling a second dose at CVS may 11th. Chesco is now insistent I didn’t get the first shot, even after giving them the lot number off of the vax card, not sure why anyone would be arguing they got the first shot? But just decided to go out and schedule the second dose somewhere else.

But you have a little card that says you do right?  Crazy.  not sure why they would be such a pain in the ass with the bum rush for the vaccine being over.  Were u able to get a shot close by?

Yeah I was able to schedule a shot AT THE CVS in Nottingham, which is only about 15 or so minutes away. 
 

my work also gives us the entire day off for the shots (which I don’t plan on taking the full day) so if I had to travel far for it, it wouldn’t have been too big of a deal.
