I was able to book jab 2 today, July 5. :):):)
I'm fully 5G'd up with Pfizer as of this morning, almost exactly two months from the first shot.

Everyone likes to give their government crap, but I have to say Canada/Ontario has done very well with vaccine acquisition and distribution. As of yesterday, we have the highest percentage/capita of people with at least one vaccine shot and are making good ground on the second.

One dose


Fully vaxxed

Let me preface this by saying that this is not a criticism. . . . and I am a pro-vaxer. . . . but, I have to wonder how protected against covid you really are using the Canadian schedule. Even after the second dose. Due to the second dose being administered 30 days later than the manufacturer recommended. As we know, you can find studies/charts showing whatever we want for our own narratives. 'Cuz, I've read that 60 days after the first shot is better than 30. I've also read the opposite.

I truly hope that y'all are just as protected as we are. . . . and vice versa. 'Cuz, I'm a firm believer that until everybody builds up some anti-bodies, (either by vaccine, or surviving the virus itself) this thing is going to be harder to get rid of than a booger on the end of your finger.

Good luck to everybody.

Trust me, we have the very same questions. Did we trade long term protection for short term gain? Unfortunately only time will tell if our gamble was the correct one.

At least in the short term, Ontario has gone from a daily all time high of 4800 cases two months ago, to 300 cases reported today.

Yeah, whether we're all going to grow an extra appendage from side effects or not, the vaccine is working. I don't have any idea how the numbers compare, but the three largest counties in the DFW area, have dropped even more.

Read yesterday that every single person in hospitals in our area had not been vaccinated.

Spoke to the daughter about the new variant and her view is that so far the vast majority of vaccinated people are beating it and those who are not are getting pretty mild cases rather than filling hospitals and dying.

Beating COVID is so “yesterday” for the pharma companies like where she works that she’s been working on something related to cancer for months.

Finally got my first Pfizer today! Next in 4 weeks!

Happy man..
The Pfizer vaccine is a 3-week wait (Moderna is 4 weeks) or is Holland doing something different to Pfizer's recommendation? I know a lot of countries are extending the interval to the second shot to broaden the supply for first shots. Canada seems to be the wild west right now, mixing and matching Pfizer, Moderna and Astra-Zeneca first and second doses in every combination and intervals between doses.

Wow I’m not a supporter of that wild mix&matching thing.. Holland has asked the experts how much there can be stretched safely with every brand. So that more people can get at least the first one quickly. Because In the beginning supplies weren’t up to speed, now they are and it’s going fast!
Did you get a mix?
