Minnesota's Governor is going to open vaccine eligibility up to everyone 16 or older on Friday. Which is great, but there's nowhere near enough vaccine available for people who are eligible now. Like me - I'm eligible but can't get an appointment anywhere to get a vaccine.

A great-nephew turned 1 today, and the extended family had a Zoom birthday-cake smash for him. Mrs. S and I joined two of her sisters at one sister's house (three of us fully vaccinated; one sister's had her first), grilled shrimp, had champagne, and logged into the Zoom call. It lasted all of 10 minutes. I had one bite of cake (carb-limited diet, to control my blood sugar).

Then we all drove up to Temecula, to the winery whose club we belong to, and tasted wine, ate prosciutto/turkey rollups, cheese, tomatoes, celery, and cucumbers, and visited (and picked up two installments of wine club picks).

A good time was had by all.

That's not a greenhouse, that's a polytunnel. :gardening:

* JoeP has neither but parents and sisters all have both greenhouses and polytunnels, either in their own gardens or in allotments

Still feeling blah and unmotivated, though got a bit of a bump after getting the second vaccine shot. The day after the shot, I felt like I had a mild, but highly annoying flu. The day after, I felt great and continue to feel good.

So I'm like riding an artificial high right now.

I'm getting my first vaccination tomorrow evening :zomg:

Eldest daughter said she read in the Guardian that over 40s were being vaccinated now, so I went to the site to register and it still said over 50 :sadcheer:

But then I tried my details anyway and it let me register. :cheer: In the past as soon as I entered my date of birth it would say I wasn't eligible. I guess they haven't updated the front page yet.

It'll be a 45-minute drive, but the Li'l Puppet gets a shot tomorrow morning, no idea which. Of course, it'll be Dad who gets the honor of chauffeuring her. :woopdedo:

I'm 1&done with JJ, Mrs. P's 2nd Pfizer dose is in a couple more weeks.

The day after my jab, I took LP and Tuco to the town & beach at Half Moon Bay. It went OK until we'd had enough, shortly after the little shit pulled us unprepared into a rather chilly wave, turning into a 4-legged sponge of cold, rank seawater. Still, he had an extraordinary (for him) and memorable 1st visit to da beach. Little fucker tried to eat sand, too. Sandy face can be found on his Instagram.

Anyway, I mention that 'cause I did okay for the whole trip until the latter half of the ride home, when I started feeling a bit swimmy. Not dizzy or cross-eyed, just the brain making it clear it needed a shutdown soon, which I did as soon as I got home. Mrs. P was nice enough to take care of Tuco's bath (cf. aforementioned rankness), because I spent the next 2 hours unconscious. After that, I was mostly OK.

This did not go well :sadcheer:

I couldn't get vaccinated as our Vaccine Centre isn't licensed to give out the jabs to over 45s yet. They know it's a cockup that you can book online to get one there, but they can't do anything about it. So wasted trip and hopes destroyed.

The worst part is that I've now had an appointment booked in the system (and one for a second vaccination!) so I don't know what will happen and how long I'll have to wait or who to contact about getting another one booked. Total fucking shambles. I'm going to start calling tomorrow and see what I can sort out.

I was so psyched too....:darn:

[thanks] but not really [thanks]. That is some bullshit right there, and seems like terrible public health practice. They have doses, somebody there ready and eligible to get vaccinated (with an appointment, even!) and they turn you away? No, you have to come back later, for a total of three visits? That can literally only function to reduce the number of people being timely vaccinated.

What happens to leftover doses there?

Yeah, complete bullshit and I have no idea what happens to leftover doses there. The dude who informed me was super nice and apologetic, but I wasn't the first one they had turned away and I wasn't getting past him with any sort of logic or pleading. I didn't try bribery though.... :chin:
