I had mentioned previously that Kathy and I received our second dose of the Pfizer vaccine last Saturday. I had heard that many people had more severe reactions to the second dose than they did with the first. I thought I would compare my reactions to those put out by the CDC as possible side effects. Here goes:
CDC says: I experienced:
Pain at the injection site
Pain at the injection site lasting one day.
Redness at the injection site
No redness at the injection site.
Swelling at the injection site
No swelling at the injection site.
No more tiredness than usual.
I did not experience a headache.
I did not have any muscle pain.
I did not develop a fever.
I did not experience any chills.
Thankfully I did not feel nauseous
So, to show you how my mind works I can’t help ask, “Why did I not suffer any side effects?” Was there something wrong with the vaccine that I wasn’t affected? Had it gone bad? Is my body not making antibodies? Is there something wrong with me? Am I not normal? (Don’t answer that.)
I need to give it a rest. I know, a piece of cake.
