I've pretty much had a constant semi-stuffy nose and loss of taste for decades, plus aches and pains for the most recent of those decades. I tend to just answer the "Do you have these symptoms?" questionnaires with "Well, do you mean any NEW aches and pains? No."

The laser therapy place I go to has made it clear in their covid questionnaire that they are referring to NEW symptoms and not something that has been ongoing for years.

Update for our state: All doses currently in stock have been reserved; no new signups allowed for now, though people who have Dose 1 will be able to get Dose 2. Everyone else has to wait a month or so for more to arrive.

With the third vaccine about to be submitted for approval (with more on the way,) the supply will hopefully start to catch up to the need.

I'm not normally a hypochondriac, and I don't get sick very often. In fact, since the pandemic, not once. Until last week. Very mildly sick. Low fever, cough, sinus headache, runny nose. Many of the symptoms, but not too bad. If the the world was sane, I wouldn't have thought much of it.
A few weeks back, I felt some common cold symptoms setting in (mostly that back-of-the-throat "raw sinuses" feeling), and attacked it with my usual method of downing a few gallons' worth of chicken noodle soup and Sunny D, and inside of four days, could feel it receding. No loss of smell or taste during that brief period, so I didn't panic.

Around here, we have vaccine. They're have problems distributing it. The SCs are also causing problems. They are making multiple reservations (it is managed by the counties, but you don't have to register in your own county) and going to who ever provides the first appointment. One location claimed an 80% no-show. Once the vaccine is thawed, you have eight hours to use it, They were scrambling to find people to vaccinate.

I had some 'migraines' over the summer...that have vanished completely once we moved into our new place (a lot of construction dust was getting into our old apartment, and who the hell knows what was in the ancient drywall that was being ripped out). I'll get the occasional back-of-the-throat rawness, but I've pinned that down to having my face covered all day (dry mouth etc). Got myself a bag of manuka honey lozenges which do the trick.

cs--That sounds like how my dad managed to get his vaccine. He had to go to the next county, but the school he coaches fencing at wound up with extra doses that had to be used that day.

I've had the raw throat thing on and off for 9 months. It's an allergy thing. I'm also chronic migrainer.

Someone posted a link to this on Twitter and I just sat through all 38 minutes reflecting and posting and reading others' thoughts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdWJ...ature=youtu.be
