  1. The Walmart testing spot was open this morning.
  2. That figure sounds wildly optimistic, based on anecdotal information from Mexican friends. Covid is spreading rapidly at the moment.
  3. The test site at Soriana is open now? Last reports were that it was closed as the assistant was ill.
  4. Is it possible that in order to change a PIN, you need to use a machine belonging to the bank issuing the card? In the past I've changed a PIN on the phone, entering the new pin from my phone.
  5. Make sure you decline the rate they offer on screen, With HSBC, I find that the difference between the offered rate and the actual rate given is as much as a peso.
  6. Yup, I've been here over 15 years and am suddenly a Newbie again. Good for our characters I guess.
  7. We were there this week for the second Pfizer shot. All the folks waiting at the CVS pharmacy we used, were from Mexico. Yes, I'd want an appointment. The pharmacist told us he was limited to 25 vaccinations a day. However, getting one should not be a problem. Just Google for info on sites setting up appointments.
  8. Operative words being "for awhile".
  9. I also saw people in hard hats and vests there last week.
  10. Don't forget the list of materials needed for the year that the teachers hand out before summer vacation. In my experience buying supplies for our help, you can spend 1500 pesos upwards on those lists.
  11. The nightjar that is found in this area is the Buff Collared Nightjar. I haven't yet heard one this spring but expect them to start calling any time now.
  12. I was slightly feverish the first evening but that was all.
  13. They kept the copy of my registration, curp and permanente card. All other copies were handed back to me.
  14. We were told in Chapala today to not drink today only and not take aspirin today only.
  15. I just returned from Chapala with a comprobante de vacunacion. It has space for the second shot, as AndyPanda says, and will be evidence of vaccination for travel etc. when completed.
  16. A friend and I had the same experience. We were in and out in just over three hours total. It's important to keep a tight hold on the comprobante document that was given to everyone. It contains all the information on the shot given and is necessary for the second shot. This paper will be your evidence of having been vaccinated for travel and other purposes. Chapala did a great job today. They will be vaccinating in Ajijic on Monday we were told.
  17. I did return to the site after my registration and was able to print out the receipt.
  18. well, forget that. I'll wait this go around out. Physically I can't handle that kind of time frame.
  19. I tested with three different sites and the results were the same for all. I have retested since my original post and nothing changes.
