I got my first COVID-19 vaccine shot today. Even though I have been working at losing weight so that I'm not, "Very fat," I am still currently, "Kind of fat." Therefore, I was advised by my doctor to get vaccinated for COVID-19 as I was in a high-risk category of people. I also am quite phat with a, "PH," but that isn't a medical concern, it just means I'm cool. What? I am cool!
Anyways, I was able to register for the Pfizer vaccine at a local CVS pharmacy by being online at midnight and quickly getting an appointment booked some days ago. Then, I showed up and got my shot today. It actually didn't hurt much at all and was done fast, which pleased me as someone who hates needles. My arm is a little sore and some hours later I feel a bit more tired than usual, but otherwise, I'm doing alright. I get my second dose in April and hope that goes smoothly too. In the meantime, I will still be wearing a mask and practicing social distancing because it is important to be safe whether we are vaccinated or not. We need to achieve herd immunity before we can relax our rules. That said, I am pleased to have gotten my COVID-19 vaccine and encourage others to do so if they are able.
