Hi all. I was wondering how many of us had been vaccinated. Maybe we are at a point where we've attained nerd immunity... I mean HERD immunity. I had COVID in February and had an antibody infusion, so I should be safe, but I can't get a vaccine until the end of the month. I'm happy to wait. Anyone else getting antsy to meet across the table?

Chris,



My situation is a little complicated. I got my second dose of Moderna on Monday so technically I’m free and clear by the second Saturday in April. However, we’ve made plans to visit our grandchild and daughter in Boston on Mother’s Day and since they most certainly won’t be vaccinated by then, we’ve agreed to continue to follow all isolation precautions prior to our trip. The other complication is that I’ve promised Melanie to avoid driving by myself more than a half-hour distance from home (the concern arises from my gradual loss of physical abilities due to Parkinson’s. I could drive to Greenbelt and take Metro from there but that’s quite a lot of exposure to potential virus carriers. The long and the short of it is that I am targeting the fourth Saturday in May as a possibility for my first in-person game... if John is up for it and there are enough vaccinated players.

Not worried about HIPA. I had my first shot yesterday March 29th. Second shot scheduled for April 19th. I am willing to play anytime after that date. Two weeks after would be May 3rd. Clarification: I don't mind sharing my vaccination status. I'm not going to share anymore else's medical information.

I got my first vaccine on March 31 and am scheduled to get my second one on April 29. That means by the time the first May session of ABG rolls around, I should be good to go. I have no idea what my actual schedule will be, but hopefully I will be available and will be able to join you guys. In the meantime, I'll keep checking here.

Here's my sitch. I had COVID at the end of January. I got an Antibody IV Infusion so I could not get my vaccine for 90 days. I'm scheduled for 4/28 and 5/19. So, I'll be totally safe after 5/33. Rather than press it, I can wait until June. But... feel free to start without me!!

Sounds like we might have enough of a vaccinated quorum for gaming on May 8th. Has anyone heard from John?
