I had the second vaccine injection last Friday (Feb 11th) and have no side effects at all, other than a bit of redness at the injection site. No soreness, no fever. I am going back Thurs and will get number 3 on Feb 18th. After that I may move to the Wednesday schedule, which is when they normally see Phase I trial patients.
I think Annie gets her first injection on Feb 16th. She got vetted a lot quicker than I did because she was already a MSK patient.
The nice folks at the Marriott offered to store a couple of bags for us - for free - so we don't have to keep lugging them back and forth. They have a special rate for MSK patients. After taxes, a weekday room comes to $217. Friday/Saturday nights are about $30 more. I keep thinking that I could be on a really nice cruise for that kind of money.
