I'm having trouble finding good advice concerning the vaccination for me, since I've now had Covid and recovered.  Apparently the severity of your sickness affects the amount of antibodies in your system.  Of course, people who had it and recovered were excluded from the trials.
I assume, since I didn't end up in the hospital on a ventilator, that I had a mild case(certainly didn't feel like it at the time), thus would have less antibodies in my system. 
About the only thing I can find that seems the same on every site is that I will continue to test positive for at least 90 days.

Yes, that is correct.  The card says Moderna and is scheduled for a second dose in 3 weeks.  The dentist in front of hubby may have been receiving something different perhaps?

If Iíve had COVID-19, can I have the vaccine?

If youíve had a confirmed case of COVID-19 you should wait until at least 4 weeks after you had symptoms, or 4 weeks since your positive test if you didnít have any symptoms, and until you have recovered from your COVID-19 infection, before having the vaccine.

Vaccine trials have been focused on people who havenít been exposed to the virus. However, the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) has said that getting vaccinated is just as important for people who have had COVID-19 as it is for people who havenít. Therefore itís advised everyone should get the vaccine when they are invited to do so.

If you have symptoms that could be coronavirus you should get a test and not get your vaccine until your period of self-isolation has ended. Have a look at what to do if you have symptoms of coronavirus

CDC
If I have already had COVID-19 and recovered, do I still need to get vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine?
Yes. Due to the severe health risks associated with COVID-19 and the fact that re-infection with COVID-19 is possible, vaccine should be offered to you regardless of whether you already had COVID-19 infection. CDC is providing recommendations to federal, state, and local governments about who should be vaccinated first.

At this time, experts do not know how long someone is protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19. The immunity someone gains from having an infection, called natural immunity, varies from person to person. Some early evidence suggests natural immunity may not last very long.

We wonít know how long immunity produced by vaccination lasts until we have more data on how well the vaccines work.

Both natural immunity and vaccine-induced immunity are important aspects of COVID-19 that experts are trying to learn more about, and CDC will keep the public informed as new evidence becomes available.

Today I heard that I can sign up for a Covid vaccination appointment via our county web site. Sign me up! Turns out that only folks 75 or older can sign up. I'm too young!

They opened up vaccinations for 65 and older in MS today. I had to keep my browser page open for 2 1/2 hours on the MS.gov website before I got my turn. The soonest appt was for Feb 2 so I took it. The news says plan to spend 2 hours in line once you get there.

It is most probable that the location only has one kind of vaccine.

Really rooting for J&J vaccine to get approved and come out soon. One dose instead of two will make a big difference.

Perhaps, but not necessarily. DW got her shot today, and they said that they do both, but today were doing the Pfizer.

Thanks, Jackie.  That seems to be an updated version of what I found.  I'm getting ready to head back west on Sunday.  I figure when I get settled back out in the Q I'll contact the health dept and follow their guidance.   I, for sure, don't want it again.  I might not be as lucky as I was the first time.

Be careful in that line.  I hope these lines and centers they are quickly assembling do not become the new 'hotspot' to catch it.

Where I live the problem is getting enough qualified nurses to give the shots. They are offering a $5K sign on bonus and paying premiums for contract nurses.

Our local pharmacy is training a couple of the dispensing staff to do it. They were doing flu jabs as a way to practice.  Not sure how difficult it is, although liability issues in the US could mean you need to be "qualified" to a higher level.  Heck I'm sure I could learn to do it.

Today our county health dept lowered the sign-up age to 65+. Sign me up!

Chris gives me bi-weekly injections in the upper arms; Don't see why she couldn't inject the Covid vaccine.

She could.  I've self-injected monthly allergy meds for over a year.  They never helped much.  But at least there wasn't much risk of anaphylactic shock?

Gary, that's not quite true.  Distribution isn't the problem, it's the local areas and some of their rules, not to mention a Monday-through-Friday and 8-to-5 mentality.  Some local dispensers are actually discarding their vaccine allotments because they've taken so long to get up and running that the stuff is beyond its use-by date.  Now THAT is disgraceful.  That's the reason some states have decided the rules be damned and lowered the ages as well as opening 24/7 locations so they can get it in more arms.  The incompetents who are holding up vaccinations should be fired IMHO.

Ardra, agree on the incompetents part, but to me, distribution is from the manufactures to the end-users arm.  Beyond distribution, I believe there is an even bigger issue.  However that is political in nature so I won't bring it up.

I got my first shot on Dec 21 and second last Monday (Jan 11). Both gave me a mild reaction of arm pain and a slight fever the next day. Fever made we want to stay on the couch and watch TV and not go anywhere, which is exactly what I did. All fine now!

Exactly. Their goal was producing a vaccine as soon as they could. A distribution plan does not seem to be part of it. The feds passed the vaccination plan to the states.

I don't know -- we're not allowed real fireplaces in our subdivision, perhaps the whole city by now (built this place in 1997), so the trash company picks it up on their recycling run. Besides, I never checked out the BTUs in a mailing.  ::) :)

I am really aching to see some infection rate data for people who have been jabbed.

i.e. Health care workers in Covid wards.  Presumably there was an infection rate and we should see like a 95% reduction, right...

If the vaccine is highly effective it's going to take longer to get those figures because there need to be a meaningful number of infections to be statistically significant.
At 95% efficacy it's going to take a lot longer to get that number of infections among the vaccinated than it would at 50% efficacy.

So, frankly, the longer it takes to get those figures, the better.   :)

It is sad during a national crisis but in many states only a RN or NP is allowed to give injections whereas in some states even a medical assistant can. It may be a moot point since our state has used up all vaccine doses and will not receive more until mid February.
