I Got My COVID-19 Vaccine

Amidst so much skepticism from many people and conspiracy theories thrown around on social media about the COVID -19 Vaccines, coupled with naysayers around me, I decided to take the COVID-19 Vaccine as a precaution for “me and mine”. On December 30th, 2020, I braved the cold, lined up in Concord, and at 9:45 am I got my first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine on my right hand. I got this vaccine because I am a frontline worker, and it was my turn to get it.

I was observed for 15 minutes by medical personnel and later cleared to go. She however asked me to watch out for any relations or side effects. I just experienced a little headache after an hour and sore at the injection spot. I also felt lousy at night but later bounced back. All these were expected. I can say I am doing ok so far.

 I can say, one should take time to educate themselves about the available COVID-19 Vaccines and their side effects, talk to your doctor, and then see what they prefer. Otherwise, COVID-19 is lethal and the statistics shown on TV every day might become be names of people you know or yourself if you do not wear your mask, sanitize, wash hands and social distance, or even get vaccinated.

 I am looking forward to having my Pfizer 2nd dose on January 19th, 2021 and I am still wearing my mask religiously and, adhering to all the CDC Guidelines.
