One of Them
Yes, I am one of “those” people who thoroughly researched the initial academic publications and had my first vaccine early, Dec. 30 to be precise. I had my second in January and the booster this week.
The different reactions has astonished me.
The first vaccine made me feel dizzy. I stood up after waiting my 15 minutes and thought I had raised up too fast. Effects of this vaccination lasted until the next day. I had medicine head and felt tired up until the next day at lunch.
Suddenly, I felt completely fine. Very weird.
It was kind of like having your ears pop while traveling over a mountain, except it was my entire body that felt 100% again.
The second dose only lasted about 5-6 hours. I was dizzy and had medicine head again.
But it felt like it slowly dispersed this time.
My arm hurt a bit the next day, but it wasn’t too bad.
This third shot, the booster dose, has been hellish for me. I have felt exhausted since yesterday and I’m about to go to bed early (which I almost never do).
I feel like I have the flu this time and it hurts to move around.
I find this all interesting. No one seems to have the exact same reaction or at least no one claims to.
I’m grateful that I work in a field where I can get immunized earlier than later.
I hope all of you are well out there in Texas, Oregon, Timbuktu! or wherever you call home!￼
