Science is great!
Much to my disappointment, the nurse administrating my dose refused to let me have the vaccine bottle when I asked if I could keep it. "It's a biohazard." Lady, you are injecting me with the stuff. It is empty and no more a biohazard than an empty insulin jar or aspirin bottle, but sure, say no. I was disappointed.
Had the shot in my right arm to balance out the left of the first dose. At Bob and Suzanne's suggestion, I kept my arm moving for the full 15 minute waiting period, then as much as I could stand for the next hour, in order to keep the soreness down. Let's see how this goes.
Tangentially related to the dose was my minor annoyance at the surgical mask I was asked to wear. Given my small head, the masks never fit well, giving me ample opportunity to inhale everyone else's germs. A number of other people were in the facility without a blue mask on, so the entrance requirement for the masks was inconsistent. Some people walked up with their surgical masks on, so the argument "we don't know how clean yours is, so require ours," is spurious at. best.
Fortunately, I'm not annoyed by two masks yet, much less one, so fine, I wore two.
