Tag is exactly sore
2020-03-16My arm hurt but I have received the jab, the initial injection was painless but the site of injection is mildly sore and it is hard to type or focus on other things. I want to get good rest and relax but sadly I still have obligations I must complete despite the discomfort.
2021-01-18My name is Cassidy, I have lived in northern Utah for the last six years. I’m originally from Mesa Arizona. I am twenty- three years old. I currently work at a hospital in northern Utah. I’m a certified nursing assistant. I have worked on the Covid-19 unit and helped many patients who have had Covid in the beginning of the pandemic. I currently live with my parents. My parents are considered high risk. My dad is 76 with COPD, emphysema and cancer. My mom is 65 with an auto immune disorder. At first I didn’t want the vaccine, I was super weary of it since it was manufactured so quickly. I honestly thought it was just over hyped. But working with the Covid -19 patients I realized it affected everyone differently. Even though I personally wasn’t worried if I got Covid-19 . I was worried about catching it and giving it to someone who couldn’t fight it off, especially a loved one. And then I realized everyone has a loved one. And that’s when I decided to get the vaccine. On December 22, 2020 i received my first dose of the moderna Covid 19 vaccine at the hospital I work at, Ogden regional medical center. At first I didn’t even feel the shot. After I received the vaccine I had to wait 15 minutes to make sure I would have no side effects. I was fine then I left the hospital and headed to school and did my certification for my class. The next morning I woke up and my left arm was super sore and I had a really hard time moving it, since it was so stiff and painful. I experienced some chills but other than that I was fine. And today January 18th 2021, I went back to the hospital I work for and I received my 2nd dose of moderna Covid -19 vaccination. I felt the shot this time, the serum was a thicker consistency. My arm is tender and I feel a general feeling of malaise. I was told by the nursing supervisor at work to take Tylenol before my vaccine and to take it following the vaccine, and to make sure to get the vaccine on a day where I won’t be working or doing anything the next day. Unfortunately I work and go to school full time. So tomorrow I have school but I’ve been keeping up on taking Tylenol. I received this vaccine not for myself but rather for others, because I would hate if my parents caught it and didn’t make it. And everyone has a family member that could possibly not make it if they caught Covid-19.
