    That seems like a fairly reasonable compromise if the current infection rate in your area is low enough.

    It reminds me of the one time Iíve had a beer in a bar during covid. Last July when things started to open back up it was a dreary cold day in the city so we went down to Palo Alto one Sunday for ice cream (it was as 80 degrees and sunny on the peninsula). Walking back to the car in the middle of the afternoon we passed a pizza place/bar with the front wide open and zero customers. SO said Ďletís get a beerí. It seemed a reasonably safe thing so I agreed. It was an unremarkable event but Iíll remember it as a happy afternoon from covid times.

    Jp, our rate is low. I was so happy to get the vaccine! I am taking a train with a friend to the Bay Area the end of April to visit a friend. We are all vaccinated and it will be great to all be together. Really feeling grateful for what I can do.

    So happy for you mschrisgo2!

    my parents are coming to visit to meet mine in April (once my vaccine is also fully effective since I teach.) I am hoping by then Dh will also have had his first shot (or only - a possibility now.) but he is just at home.

    DH is getting his first today.. mine will be March 10. The appointments opened up for 65+ yesterday at 8:15 and at 8:45 my son was calling me asking if we got ours yet.. he's as anxious as we are to get to see them and the grandkids.

    I just got the first at the local supermarket pharmacy. I noticed on their web page portal to make an appointment they now have a dropdown where you can select the "two dose" vaccine or J+J. I suppose potentially that means a person might be able to choose, although there obviously were no J+J openings so far since they just started shipping. I had to spend a fair amount of time searching for appointments. They've scheduled me for the booster and I hope that will not be difficult.

    Other than a sore arm I really didn't have any adverse reactions. It has been easier than the shingles vaccine, which caused like symptoms for several days. I don't think my risk level is going to allow any maskless gatherings or hugs until I get the second. I've waited this long and a few more weeks is not a big deal. I've sort of gotten used to the routine.

    That is for you. What about the people you come in contact with ... waitstaff, etc?

    Today is 10 days after the second shot. DS and GD are coming today to visit. DS wanted specifics and is getting together as soon as advisable. It has been a LONG time since we have seen each other IRL.

    My brother is very sick and has been for 5 days from the second dose. Frugal, the wait staff has to serve unvaccinated people and I am safer than that. Luckily everyone gets to make their own decisions. As paranoid as my kids were this year my DIL is going back to work in a casino with only one dose under her belt.

    I feel sorry for those who have to work and deal with the public. I am anxious to get on with my life too but chose to wait based on the science. To each their own.

    10 days after the second dose is probably as safe as it's going to ever be (for transmission also, I know this isn't proved) but not just 10 days after the first.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
