I got my second shot of the covid-19 Pfizer vaccine on Saturday. A lot of people have warned of side effects for a couple days after getting vaccinated, especially with the second dose. Some have said the symptoms can be quite debilitating.
I am grateful that mine were relatively mild. On Sunday I had a headache, fatigue, and body aches all day. They weren’t terrible, but I felt kind of disoriented, as if I might have had a fever, and didn’t feel up to doing much except sit on the couch watching television. Monday I still had a headache and some body aches, but they were considerably better by Monday night.
I’m not complaining. The symptoms weren’t that bad, and I would have gladly endured worse to get the vaccination. Now I have two weeks for the vaccine to do its magic. And then I am considered protected.
