I would think the issue would be if you got your vaccine in a random zip code, you'd have to be back in that zip code 21-28 days later to get your second shot...Better make sure it's in a place you can get back to in exactly 21 days for Pfizer and 28 for Moderna. If you are lucky/unlucky enough to get the Johnson and Johnson shot, that wouldn't be an issue. But in my area, the one and done shots are gone very quickly.

I got the J&J one shot two weeks ago. I had to hunt for a cvs time shot. It took me a day to find one. I had to drive an hour away for it.

My wife had her Pfizer two shots done also.

No side effects except sore arm for a day. No biggy and happy to have gotten it done.

Hey buddy:

You’re just not trying hard enough, or bothering to do even cursory research on availability.

Maybe the algorithm is different for me, but my social feeds alone are a plethora of resources from my vaccinated friends on exactly what they did step by step, including cross state lines without breaking any criteria.

There are now 3 states that offer it to everyone aged 16 or over, with more than 20 more doing the same by the end of April. Relax. Everyone who wants the vaccine will have the opportunity to get one within a few weeks or months, and those who take initiative and try a little harder can get one in a few days.

You hit a wall with only one avenue, when spending an hour on vaccine search engines and making a few calls could have gotten you appointments in six different states. And your first instinct is to call for a nationwide strike?

Good lord, what a petulant teenage response!

Why do you want a shot, it's not a vaccine, for a virus that has a 95% and up chance of survival?

I sure don't want to be a test subject.

You will not get a trucker strike started.

Good luck to you.

Such an unhealthy and obese population. This was our chance to finally stop and think about our health and choices we make and continue to make that got us where we are in terms of health.

We could change our ways! We could eat healthier, we could exercise, we could treat our mental health more seriously. We could do sooo many things to boost our health and our immune system so that we can be confident that our body will be able to fight off illnesses better. This is our chance.

.....or..... we could further our enslavement to big gov and the pharmaceutical industry and depend on a "vaccine" for our livelihood whilst living in fear because we are told to, all the while shutting off our own ability to critically think and reason for ourselves.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I dunno, my BS in nutrition, MS in biochemistry, and post-baccalaureate premed coursework lead me to disagree with a lot of the hot takes here, but what do I know?

Due to the pandemic I’m just a truck driver like the rest of you now.

Meanwhile, I’m taking my 10% bodyfat and 455 deadlift PR down to get vaccinated at Prime on Tuesday.

Sure sucks to be such an unhealthy obese slave to the pharmaceutical industry! I’ll make sure to come back here for diet tips too. Gotta go, need to go “do my research” on YouTube !
