Vaccine

Today was second vaccine day. On a cold afternoon I went to a health center for it. It was probably colder and wetter than it was twelve weeks ago. It was certainly very windy.

It was great to get inside, everyone was socially distanced. People were seated around the edges of the room but I was ushered straight through after having my temperature taken. I think that was because I was on my second jab so they had already got my details.

A couple of minutes later I was being asked which arm I wanted the jab in. The nurse said ‘sharp scratch’ but to be honest I didn’t feel anything. After utting on my coat I went to sit with a group of people sitting a couple of meters apart. Ten minutes later, with no obvious side effects, I was allowed to go.

I went shopping on the way home. I feel fine, just an achy shoulder, and that might just be the pain I sometimes get in my frozen shoulder. Onwards and upwards. I hope the world can roll out the vaccine everywhere, not just in rich Western countries.

  1. Well done you! I had my second jab on the 6th ( could that have been the same day?). I’ve got a fever and headache now and am feeling pretty grim. Docs have said this is a normal side effect for some folk. Time for another cup of tea I think and then I will have to play with Leia (my kitty) who is being driven mad by raindrops running down the window which she can’t seem to catch!
