Mrs Media and I got our first Pfizer vaccination 10 days ago. Sore arm the next day. We are preparing for the predicted "being sick" for a day or two after the second one. Everything I am hearing is that taking Tylenol AFTER (not before) getting the second vaccination has been helpful. I'm hearing that it should be taken preventatively to stay ahead of whatever the vaccine has been dealing out.
As for travel, we are going to fly for the first time next month, but we will still take maximum precautions. I will be wearing an N-95 mask plus a face shield both in the airport and on the plane(s).
So far as travel by car, we drove from Pittsburgh to Orlando in January, taking two days for the trip. We didn't trust staying in any hotel/motel, so we stayed in Hilton Head at Marriott's SurfWatch resort, where we have stayed in the past, and where we already know from experience how diligent the staff there is about sanitizing everything from room preparation to chairs by the pool to enforcing the mask mandates, etc. We were fully confident.
Of course, since I'm on two Marriott Boards of Directors (Myrtle Beach and one in Orlando), I've seen from the inside out exactly how much care and detail goes into the efforts at our Marriott Vacation Clubs, and I have 100% confidence in staying at any of them. So... we stayed at Marriott Vacation Clubs -- a week in Orlando, a week in West Palm Beach, a week on Marco Island, a week back in Orlando, and a final week back at SurfWatch on Hilton Head Island. We went by car, so there was VERY little interaction with others. I wore my mask and face shield when I bought gasoline, and we ordered takeout meals when we weren't cooking in our kitchen (fully-stocked) at the villas. Even though we didn't go out to do "vacation" things, we did have the opportunity to ride our bicycles and take walks, and that beat the HECK out of the alternative: staying inside in a freezing Pittsburgh!
So.. glad to hear you're on the list and will be joining the ranks of the "protected!"
