Very happy to learn this morning that already 68 percent of the adults in my California county have been vaccinated. My zip code -- postal code -- was one of the hardest hit, so it's good news the vaccine is available and widely accepted.   But I am longing to see my grands. They are clear across the country from me, and are still too young for the vaccine. Their momma is a public health expert and we've agreed no contact until they do get the vaccine.  Sigh . . .

We're only at 40% (55% of eligible population though) here by me.  And we're open to anyone 16 yo and older.  Frustrating but as we don't collect metrics for 1 dose down,  i am hoping for a jump as people get their seconds in the coming weeks.

My province is over 40% of eligible people (12 plus) with at least one dose. We'll be at 50% in no time which is fantastic.

My mom had her first dose (Pfizer) back in March (85F). Canada expanded the interval between doses so she hasn't had the second one yet. She had arm pain right after getting it and it went away only to come back a few weeks later. Its been almost 2 months and she's still having issues. Wondering if anyone else is having the same issue. Her dr says its arthritis (her dr says everything is arthritis) and didn't even examine her as it was a phone appointment.

I had arm pain, but it never came back. I wouldn’t think arthritis feels anything like the soreness from a shot. Maybe time for a new doctor?

My province sucks, but nice to read that one area of Canada has their s*** together.

 I have psoriatic arthritis. It's in remission right now, but somewhere between three and four weeks after my second shot I had a good few days when all my joints just ached and I was very stiff. I got through with Aleve and adding an additional curcumin capsule. Then it went away and I was fine. Also the King of the Britons had shingles pain. After his bout with shingles he had pain for months and the area where his rash was located flared up after the second shot.

It's not anything that would have stopped us from getting both vaccine shots. That goes also for the yearly booster that will probably be needed. We both had the Moderna vaccine.

I had bone and joint pain after my 2nd shot. But it only lasted as long as my fever then improved dramatically once that broke. Had a few twinge-s on day 3 but better now day 4.
Moderna as well

Just a thought - My sister had persistent arm pain after having blood drawn and they diagnosed nerve damage from a too-tight tourniquet.  It eventually went away on its own, but it did take about a year.  

Now, I know a shot doesn't involve a tourniquet but maybe the needle grazed a nerve?  (Is that possible?)

On another note, my husband has had a semi-persistent neck and head pain after receiving his 2nd dose on 4/30 which is worrying me a lot.  I have worn my throat hoarse asking him to go to his Dr but like some do, he keeps putting it off.

I got the Pfizer vaccine but I had zero side effects. I hope your mom's arm starts to feel better soon. I'd get a second opinion, personally.

Thanks everyone. She had blood work about 2 weeks after her vaccination so it could have been that as well I guess. My mother in law is having the same issue and seeing her dr this week so we're waiting to see what her dr says. Its really hard to get a family doctor where I live - if it wasn't for that I'd totally be after mom to get a new one. There are a few walkin clinics I know of - I'll probably take her to one of those for a second opinion.

Edit to add that we just opened up vaccination for people 50plus and some other people!

There are some Canadian doctor apps that might be worth looking into. They won't be able to see your mom in person but they might be able to refer her to a specialist or something.

I have had odd reactions like that to vaccines before (not this one but I had one for going to college where my arm ached for months).
