Covid19 has been the world challenge for at least 16 months now and who knows until when we will be facing it? A few of us are still deciding whether to get it or not. Totally understandable! I spoke to some of my friends and they’re still undecided about getting the vaccines due to fear of side effects. Yes, there are news about some unfavorable side effects but think about the chance of getting it, one in millions. Be positive and think that these vaccines save millions of lives…
I just got my first shot of Pfizer vaccine a few days ago and I am totally fine. If you would asked me if I have hesitation at all before? Definitely none whatsoever! In fact, I have been very anxious and patiently waited for my turn to get it. Now it’s been two days since my first vaccine shot, I am doing great! What I am feeling was just like getting my annual flu shot, a little sore on my arm and that’s about it. A few of my family and friends got their vaccines already, two got Pfizer and the others got Moderna and AstraZeneca and they’re all fine.
As we all know, millions of people around the world got their shots months ahead of most of us and millions are still waiting to get it and who knows when they would get the vaccines?
What I am trying to say, for us who have access to the vaccines, I encourage you all to get it once your turns come. Consider ourselves lucky to have the privilege and access to the vaccines. Regardless if it’s Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca get yours soon!
As we are experiencing the third wave and new cases are mounting up, please do take care of yourselves and take extra precautions. Do your due diligence, protect yourself, family and friends.
Get your vaccine now!
