I got the COVID vaccine today.
My husband & I drove to Miami to get it. The governor recently added all K-12 school-based personnel. I’ve been waiting to get it because I didn’t fit the age or health criteria before this change.
The whole process was seamless and really quite amazing. It was really cool how they managed to move the process along with local, state and federal employees. We moved through the line quickly. One of the workers told my husband that as my spouse, he could get vaccinated, too. What welcomed news!
As we got to the room, we were directed to a table labeled Pfizer. All of the workers in the room were active duty military. I sat down, answered a few questions and then was given the shot by an Army medic. Side note: it didn’t hurt… I just don’t like shots.
Because we received the Pfizer vaccine, we have to go back in 21 days for the second dose.
They had these porta-potties around the campus. I giggled at the name, because I’m ridiculous.
On the ride home, I started to feel very tired. When we got home, I had lunch and went to rest in my room. I felt warm, and my husband told me it seemed like I had a low-grade fever. I took a nap for about 1.5-2 hours and felt much better when I woke up. My arm is a little sore at the injection site.
Here’s to hoping dose two doesn’t throw me for such a loop.
