One down...

One to go.

I had my covid vaccine yesterday. No big deal. A very small amount of vaccine (looked like about 0.3 ml) and a small needle. Today, no ill effects at all. I don't consider the little spot on my deltoid that feels like a little bruise an ill effect. It is less that I get each year from the flu shot.

My next appointment for jab #2 is on Jan. 7th. That is the one where I may have some ill effects. One of the doctors I work with told me that the immune response is often much stronger with the 2nd shot and taking the day off work after the 2nd one is advisable. Some of the things one may feel are nausea, headache, body aches and fever.

Guess I will find out then.

Stay safe, everyone! Be kind. Be hopeful that this is the beginning of the quelling of the pandemic. 


  1. Well done! Hope all is well on the 7th as well.

  2. The hangover is scheduled for 7th of January - no surprise then.

    Glad to learn that you reacted well to this stuff. As MsScarlet saied, hope all will be well in a few weeks.

  3. I've got my fingers crossed for you. Your bravery never fails to humble me. I think I want to be you when I grow up!

  4. A little late, but glad you got a vaccination!

    Happy Christmas, sweetpea! <--- at least I'm on-time with greetings! xoxo

  5. Hey - how are you, now, after the second needle ?

    I'm a bit late, it was a strange time. Belated, but heartfelt - Happy New Year Ponita. And seriously - how are you ? I hope there are no "unwanted reactions".


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
