My parents managed to schedule their first shot on April 3rd which is great. My dad is a transplant recipient so he’s in one of the higher risk groups.

Source for the anaphylaxis comments so there is some risk with the vaccine:

There's some speculation that this may be the first vaccine related death although it is too early to say for sure:
A little further information into the doctor's death:

Humor break....I admit I have had fun with certain patients after reminding them of all the potential side effects, and then after injecting them saying "oh yeh, there is the 6 month sexual dysfunction as well"...that momentary look of horror on their face is priceless. Keep in mind, I am professional, I did this with a lot of the Firefighters, EMS workers, and other patients who I had decent rapport with and knew I could get away with it. But yeh, still funny! :)

Hey, brothers and sisters. My agency is making the vaccine available to us 12/28. What are your thoughts on the Pfizer vaccine. Will you get it if you have a choice?
Yes, I will also be getting the vaccine as soon as it's available to me. I was hesitant a few months back but now I am looking forward to getting vaccinated.

Should I laminate my vaccine card now that I have both shots?

The current word is no, in the event that boosters are required, they'll use the "other" spots on that card.
We were told to take pictures if our card with our phones in case we lose it.

Janssen one-dose yesterday. Was fine for approx. the first twelve hours and then started feeling very rundown and achy. Feel a bit better but still poorly this afternoon

I went with "take a picture and keep the card safe for now, at a minimum" when vaccinating at a mass site. In retrospect I think you're right - we filled out a few lost cards for folks who were getting second doses based on the VAMS records, so no reason we couldn't do that for boosters.

Wouldn't that make it a Vaxport?

dammit... I already lost both my cards... I think one is stuffed in my winter jacket... maybe?

Thankfully, I was able to log onto the county covid database and downloaded my records to my dropbox folder.

Realistically speaking, how hard would it be to falsify those vaccine cards?

People have already been selling them online from $5-$20 per card.

I advised all my family and friends to take pictures of their cards and luckily I was able to keep a handful of blank cards should any of them misplace their cards.

The cards are not very complicated. Give someone an hour on a computer and some card stock and they could easily make/print them.
