• VIDEO: 3+ Cheers for COVID-19 Vaccination
Last weekend, BOB STUHMER, who frequently appears in this blog, and I had our second Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine shots at a vaccination site in Nassau County.
Late January, when one of my daughters magically landed on an online vaccination sign-up page that listed available appointments and actually worked, she scheduled appointments for Bob and me.
There was no blood on Bob’s arm after the shot, so the medical student who administered the Pfizer vaccination said he didn’t need a bandage unless he wanted one. (He didn’t.)
• SIDE EFFECTS for Bob? This college professor didn’t have any side effects after the first dose on January 30th, and didn’t have any after the second dose three weeks later.
• SIDE EFFECTS for me? No big deal. After each vaccination, my arm felt a bit sore when I touched it, for about a day. Right after the second shot, I felt slightly light-headed for a few minutes (though, in hindsight, I should have eaten something between breakfast and my early afternoon appointment).
