Ah, the predicted surge in pent up spending. Best of luck with everything.

 - situation still stable here in DK, where more opening up is going to take place next Wednesday etc., the tourist sector in particular is waiting for a flux of foreigners that will only slowly begin later, however.

- with the J&J put on a halt, and the AZ postponed indefinitely here, but more Pfizers coming, and vaccines being administered purely in relation to age groups now, I'm still waiting whether my shot will be delayed. I hope not; at best, there'll be a first call in the end of April, or some time in May. There's a debate whether stored AZ vaccines, about 200,000, can be chosen by those who want it anyway, or should be given or sold to other countries. The official risk estimate here is that 1 in 40,000 cases will experience tough health problems because of the AZ.

- at the AZ stop press conference, the female official fainted. I've seen depressingly idiotic social media posts claiming, that she was probably suffering from vaccine diseases (she has likely not even had a vaccine) - or even, in all earnesty, that her appearance was sabotaged via a secret vaccine nano-microchip from global medicine companies.

- the virus has unexpectedly meant a revival for the old, tiny administrative level of the church parish here;
the authorities reacting on a micro-level, a certain amount of virus will automatically mean that a parish is closed down. Some side-effects have been unfortunate, such as the closure of local educational institutions without any virus cases. A map of the current virus levels, as per parish, is now being released, probably regularly from now on ...

Private household saving is at an all time record high in my country. That is not like us at all. There will be a deluge of spending when this is all over. Then we will be bankrupt.......again  ;D

Not sure why I found it interesting but I did. Post lockdown is at 30% pre-Covid levels on public transport and the roads are at 90%.

Well, my perseverance finally paid off!  I'm scheduled to get round one of the vaccine soon.   :)

I had my first AstraZeneca yesterday. The (test & )vaccination center was incredibly busy with hundreds of 65+ citizens getting in line, waiting before and after the jab. An unusual and somehow unsettling spectacle....
It feels good, though.

I'm glad that you received your first shot.  Surprised though that they had all of these people lined up.  Were there no appointments set up?  Or just that it was at a huge place?

Excellent.
Had it today I'm happy to report.  :)

As I mentioned, I had my first shot yesterday (Moderna).  Didn't notice any side effects yesterday but this morning I awoke to finding that my shoulder was pretty sore.  A bit of a challenge to work out in the garden.  Hopefully, it will go away soon.

Just had my first AstraZeneca vaccine today. Round two is slated to be in about four months.
