This morning my wife and I received our second COVID vaccinations. We arrived at 7:15 for our 8am appointments, which were the first of the day. For our first shots we arrived at the same time and were the very first car in line. Today we were probably the 50th car in line. Like last time it was set-up so that you were directed to a parking spot and then allowed to enter the building. They had folks monitoring the line so that people went in according to their appointment time. They even opened things up about 15 minutes early.
We entered the building and it was laid out so that everyone stayed spaced apart. For my first vaccination I felt some heat when getting the shot and my wife didn’t feel a thing. For the second shot, neither of us felt anything. After getting the vaccination we moved to an adjoining room for a 15 minute waiting period to make sure we suffered no ill after-effects. Neither of us had any reactions so we left and again, the layout made it a breeze.
On day two of the first shot we both had a little arm pain tomorrow, but nothing that Tylenol couldn’t handle. I felt sleepy this afternoon and took a nap. Can I blame it on the shot? My wife has felt no ill effects. In two weeks our immune systems will have the full effect of both vaccinations and we will be able to start visiting friends and family again. I can’t wait.
