Don’t live in Mississippi anymore, but I have had the first shot. No unusual side effects, arm was a little sore for a few days, but thats all. Same with my wife. When you get the first, try to get an appt. for the second. I know some folks are having trouble scheduling the second. My second is on Feb 10..

My mother got her's (Moderna) from the health department/nat guard. It was a drive through situation, her second shot was not scheduled.

My MIL's (Pfizer) was from UMC in Flowood. Her's was in person and her second shot was scheduled at the same time.

Both operations were on time and it all sent smoothly.

Both are elderly, but absolutely no side effects.

according to the msdh if you receive your vaccine through a drive in, you have to go the covidvaccine.umc.edu and schedule your next appointment.

That is correct.

I've been reading about the distribution comments in the Neighborhood forum for Desoto country. I don't qualify by age or pre-existing conditions, but for those that got the vaccine (about a dozen comments) for the most part it seems to be going smooth, drive in administration, with lines ranging from nothing to a couple hours. Not bad at all.

When scheduling via the website, you just have to keep refreshing.

All day Friday (scheduling for my MIL), I keep refreshing with a goal to keep doing it all day/night until I got a slot. A couple of times during the day I got to the point of scheduling only to lose the appointment before entering the info.

At 7pm, several next day appointments popped up for Flowood, I was able to get one of those.

Does the place in Flowood have the same vaccine has her first dose. I ask this because if she got the Moderna vaccine and the place in Flowood has Pfizer, that's not going to work. The two vaccines aren't interchangable. That's why they said you have to book your appointment for your 2nd dose at the same place as your initial dose.

She got pfizer in Flowood, her second shot was scheduled at the same time she got the first shot. First shot on 23 Jan and second is scheduled for three weeks later.

My mother got Moderna from the health department/national guard. My sister handled it, but they don't schedule the second shot, you have to schedule the second dose on line.

An old trick we did in the military was take ibuprofen a couple of hours before a shot that was supposed to cause a reaction (IIRC, Anthrax, yellow fever and small pox were some of the worst).

I'd like to edit this out of my post above. I'm in no way, shape or form qualified to give medical advice. Don't take anything before the shot unless advised by a medical professional.
