After COVID-19 Vaccination, Bob Feels Fine

VIDEO: 3 Cheers for COVID-19 Vaccination – Bob Stuhmer gets his 2nd Covid-19 Vaccination, 2/20/2021, Nassau County, New York:

Last weekend, Bob 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 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?  He 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?  Barely worth mentioning. For about a day after each vaccination, my arm felt a bit sore when I touched it. After the second shot, I felt slightly light-headed for a few minutes, which I suspect is because I didn’t eat anything between breakfast and my early afternoon appointment.

Earth Day 2020: PAUSE & Webbed Feet

 How I spent Earth Day on Long Island

Months ago, I ordered a box of 20 disposable N-95 masks. By the time they arrived, not long ago, many local first responders were short on Personal Protective Equipment and could use the masks more than I did.

After reading L.I. Herald reporter Andrew Garcia’s article on the Bellmore-Merrick EMS and how it needed PPE, I put on my makeshift face mask, grabbed the unopened box of N-95s, and drove to the not-for-profit’s nearby Bellmore HQ.

While dropping off the masks outside the EMS entrance door, I asked EMT ALEX DOOLEY what protective equipment donations the first responders particularly needed, other than masks, and she immediately said “gowns.”

Since dusk wasn’t far off when I left, I decided to capture Earth Day photos at a nearby South Shore park.

Normally I’d head west to Norman J. Levy Park & Preserve in Merrick, but it was closed because its sprawling trails and secluded areas weren’t social-distancing-friendly and Long Island was a major hot spot for the Covid-19 pandemic. So I instead headed east to Mill Pond Park in Wantagh.

The park borders Merrick Road, where I parked, joining two or three other cars already there, and adjusted my face mask after getting out of the car.

My iPhone 11 Pro was the best and only camera I had with me. Its 2X optical zoom helped make it possible to capture photos I otherwise couldn’t have while Governor Cuomo’s executive order “New York State on PAUSE” is in effect, currently from March 22 to May 15, 2020.

New York State on PAUSE “NY State remains on PAUSE through May 15. All non-essential workers are directed to work from home, and everyone is required to wear a face covering and maintain a 6-foot distance from others in public”
