My experience so far with the COVID-19 Vaccine (Pfizer, Dose 1/2)

On Monday I got my first dose of the Pfizer COVID-10 Vaccine. Getting an appointment was hard after a long series of phone calls and spending multiple hours on hold I was luckily able to get an appointment. All jokes about 5G aside, everything went well and side effects weren’t too bad.

Day of the Vaccine

Everyone at the vaccine center was very nice there were volunteers taking down information and helping every 10 feet. It was very well organized and setup for mass vaccinations. There was little delay or waiting. It took less than 10 minutes from entering the building to tell them my personal information so they can confirm the appointment to me getting the shot. They had me wait about 15 minutes to make sure I didn’t have an allergic reaction before I left. I got my shot around 2:30 PM and afterwards ran some errands. Around 4 PM I did start feeling like I was coming down with something and got more and more tired. At 8 PM I went to sleep. I kept waking up during the night and didn’t sleep as well as I’d like.

Day after the Vaccine

So I woke up in the morning and the biggest issue (aside from feeling tired on and off) was that my arm was sore. I thought I would feel much worse but it is certainly manageable. I hear that dose two is not as pleasant I guess I will see for myself in a few weeks. I wasn’t hungry in the morning and ate a light dinner last night too. I am probably gonna find something small for lunch now as it’s 1:30.
