I received my COVID-19 Booster shot on December 14th in Carroll County at the Finksburg Pharmacy. The process was quick, easy and mostly painless (it was a shot…so not totally painless).
On Sunday December 12th I decided to make an appointment so I visited: https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/pages/vaccine to look for a location close by and that had availability soon. After searching the local places, I went with the Finksburg Pharmacy (obviously located in Finksburg):
I arrived a few minutes before my appointment this morning. They took my information and I was getting my shot within minutes of arriving. The staff was wonderful.
For those curious: I got the Johnson and Johnson original COVID vaccine shot (back in April at the VA Medical Center in Baltimore) and got the Johnson & Johnson booster today.
No adverse symptoms yet (I will monitor throughout the day and update you if I experience anything).
Update 12/15/21: I did get a case of the “chills” yesterday afternoon and evening. Had a hard time staying warm. Still a slight case of the chills this morning and a little sore in my arms, neck and back. Nothing really bad…more annoying than anything.
Per the Maryland Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard: 1,282,265 booster shots have been administered in Maryland to date:
You can now add one more to that count (actually, you can add two more as a good buddy of mine is getting his booster shot at 11:00am today).
