    So I checked the booking site, seems I can book something now provided I say I have a chronic issue. But it doesn't ask for any kind of confirmation.

    There's a slot available May 8. That's after things open up for my group anyway. I do have a chronic issue, but not sure if it would be affected by COVID. It might? Is this a waste of time?

    I don’t know the rules there, but if it’s anything autoimmune or respiratory related, it’d qualify here. My wife had bad pneumonia that almost killed her a few years ago. While it was actually her job that got her shot (front line), due to history, she was among the earlier ones to get it in her group.

    Just to follow-up for myself, 5 days after the Pfizer shot, I feel completely fine. Sore arm was gone within 36 hours, as well as any headache and nausea.

    My wife has mild asthma. Does that count? In my case, I have something that increases my risk of getting pneumonia 10x, but it's mostly controlled with medication.

    I'm not trying to skip the line. There are 100s of empty slots available and I'm just trying to do what's right for my family.

    You mean you didn’t grow a third leg?

    Not literally storming with guns but something like Montreal's City Hall breach:

    Thanks! I actually do fall into this group as I aspirate in my sleep due to a condition I have, hence the pneumonia risk.

    For what is worth, they just asked what was my condition when I went and didn't really check anything. To be fair, obesity is pretty obvious, but I don't think they ask much detail.

    Just make sure you have your RAMQ card as you will be asked 5 times I believe to scan it. :laugh:

    I went to a vaccination centre, so they have more space and like 4 different station you have to stop by and they ask your card each time:
    Pre-check in
    Check-in
    Side effect, bla bla, consent
    Vaccine

    Basically if you think your health issue puts you at greater risk, book your shot. I think there are enough people who won't get the vaccine, are hesitant, or skeptical that you shouldn't feel bad. Protect yourself.

    Our numbers of hospitalizations and ICUs are pretty low and they haven't really let up restrictions here.

    Vaccination in Outaouais is starting to pickup, more vaccine administered than Laval now.

    I don't feel bad at all. There are 100s of spots available, at this point anyone who doesn't have it yet and is able, is a lost cause. I don't think these people deserve priority over anyone else who actually wants to contribute to moving us forward. I am booked for next week.

    Good to hear. I'm going for my 2nd shot on Tuesday. I'm nervous, to be quite honest, but I know it needs to be done.

    Are the 5G antennas you develop retractable?
