Jabbed: Part One

I had my first Pfizer jab yesterday and it all went remarkably smoothly — from turning up at the vaccination centre to sitting down in the post-jab waiting room, the whole process only took about ten minutes.

And, after the compulsory 15 minute wait, I went out for a drink, because of course I did.

And in five week’s time I have to do it all over again for the second jab.

    1. I think it’s a question of different national approaches: The UK tried to get everyone jabbed at least once, whereas Belgium has taken longer in order to ensure people are being jabbed in line with manufacturers’ recommendations.

    1. I certainly hope we can get back to normal soon. They’re announcing more relaxations today — starting from 9th June restaurants can let people indoors, and new rules about opening up travel are being announced.

      Here comes summer 😀


      1. Exactly, Paul. My mum leaves in Uganda, in a very remote village. I was shocked of the misinformation she gets concerning the vaccine. I had to reassure her that is was safe and the best thing she could do was to get her dose. Very discouraging how misinformation affects even “rational” people. SMH

  1. Hope you’ve been okay after it, Paul. I had Pfizer too a few weeks ago. I felt all spaced out over it and waiting for my 15 mins to be up. It played up my anxiety in the hope I don’t keep over and become THAT statistic. I’m waiting for my second call up.

    1. It all went very easily for me. I can’t even claim my upper arm was sore where they injected me — I was aware of it the following day, but only when I was paying attention.

      As for the second dose, they way they do it here is that you book both injections at the same time. So I have known the schedule as far as I’m concerned ever since I received the invitation.


  2. I got my Phizer 25 May and was sore at the injection site but only for a couple days. Other than that, I just felt old and crotchety which is fairly normal 🙂
