I now get to book into line for shot #2, but now wondering if it will be one of the dwindling AZ supply, or the Pfizer, giving me the swamp mix of vaccines. LOL.
If you had astrazeneca as your first shot then you'll be offered it as your second.
Blood clot risks are nearly unheard of with the second dose.

Maybe not, most of Canada has a shortage and recommend getting the abundant Pfizer shot as a second, which also boosts antibodies.
If it's available when my turn comes around I'll get it.
Pfizer has announced tens of millions of doses coming the next 2 months, nothing from AZ.

Nobody in my age group last week when it opened up appeared to get AZ. Mostly Pfizer and a couple of people got Moderna (in AB)

I'm fully vaccinated, had hard time finding a open slot, went to the Walgreens website, bingo, multiple times and days.
1st shot, absolutely nothing, 2nd shot, sore arm for a day and a half.
Had the Pfizer vaccine.
Still wearing my mask @ times.
Feel naked without it. LOL

I got Pfizer last week as I haven't been eligible due to my age, or i would have got it done months ago. It feels nice to have my first dose though :)

Canada has just surpassed the USA for % of population with at least the 1st dose.
Still behind on 2nd dose though.
Come on Canucks, we can do this!

Had my second AZ shot yesterday!

As the information had stated, typically no side affects with the second dose of AZ. I didn't even get a sore shoulder this time, unlike my first shot which was a bad 24 hour flu. My wife only had a sore shoulder on her first AZ shot...

Free unprotected hugs are now available for those who wish :rofl:

My second is booked for 12 days from now.
I'll be getting the Pfizer as a second with my AZ for the first.
There is some delay with getting AZ to our pharmacies while PZ is readily available.
Going with the get the first available to you advice.

That's what I did as well; first available vaccine.

The province sent me the first invite, so I booked for Pfizer for June 29, the earliest date I could find in the lower mainland. Then a pharmacy replied with AZ appointments available immediately. So I took that, and cancelled my Pfizer appointment. I would have preferred to get Pfizer as my second as apparently combined with AZ it gives a broader protection, but I wasn't prepared to wait, just in case.

I personally now three people who have anti-vaxers in their extended families that have each had a person die from COVID complications - two with no known pre-existing health issues, and none were elderly.

I can't wrap my head around it, and I have to cut conversations short as I get too frustrated trying to discuss it. To each their own of course, but so painful to lose someone you love to something so preventable.

I'm hearing RUMOURS that there will likely be a booster shot next year because of the variants it's believed COVID will still be around, and that booster will APPARENTLY be Pfizer.
