    No one needs to see what I look like.

    It's three days since my second dose - I was able to eat normally yesterday, had a beer with dinner, and fell asleep at 8:45 p.m. Woke up at the usual time, still tired and headachy, but otherwise back to normal. Took 600 mg ibuprofen with breakfast, now I'm just a little tired.

    Please, go get vaccinated. You almost certainly won't have the reaction I had, especially if you get the J&J single dose vaccine. The sooner you get vaccinated, the sooner we all get back to haunting press boxes to eat warm hot dogs on stale buns at halftime.

    I'll go the second I get the text/email from the health department telling me it's my turn. My 74-year-old mom is getting her first dose today, so I'm happy for that.

    Great news, but remember to continue to mask and social distance. You are likely still able to transmit the virus to others.

    I can't.

    Not even on March 24, because I haven't "smoked 100 cigarettes in my lifetime."

    In NC, if you’ve smoked at least 100 cigarettes in your lifetime, you can get vaccinated starting March 24 | CBS 17

    By the time I become eligible, it will be like shooting a Nazi on May 7, 1945. Did my part, but . . .

    I got the vaccine because I'm a first responder in my town. I assure you, I'm going to be wearing a mask until I'm told not to by competent authorities.

    I do think Texas (and others) are being premature in fully opening this soon. I like the phased approach Virginia is taking and I think we'll be close to fully open by May, but right now isn't the time to go Katie Bar The Door on this.

    I will not feel comfortable until U.S. daily deaths are near zero. Is that over-cautious?

    Yes, it is. This disease will not be eradicated. You may as well turtle in your house forever.
