Hey COVID, F U!
Dose #2 is D-O-N-E!
I received my second Moderna vaccine on Tuesday afternoon and gleefully skipped all the way to the parking lot.
Let’s discuss the side effects: -Approximately 12 hours post vaccination, I developed injection site tenderness and mild swelling -As the day continued, I felt tired, my eyes felt heavy, and I experienced mild/moderate body aches and joint pain -The above side effects lasted for about 24-36 hours
WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN: It means my immune system is working!!!
PLEASE NOTE: -My side effects were completely manageable -Resolved with a dose of Tylenol -It was WAY better than having COVID, being admitted to the hospital, and potentially having long term, devastating symptoms
Please, please, please... I beg you... When it’s your chance to get your shot, do your research (using credible sources-not Jenny McCarthy ), ask questions, and trust science!!!
