Yesterday, I finally got vaccinated against COVID-19. I was so happy. Seriously.
I know that so many people are reluctant and have questions or reservations but I was all for it. In my opinion, dying from COVID is far scarier than the side effects of the COVID vaccine. Truth be told, I didn't even ask what vaccine we were getting. I just want to be vaccinated.
When I was told it was Sinovac, I was okay. If they had told me it was AstraZeneca, I would still be okay. If it was Pfizer or any other, I would still be okay.
It was a very smooth process. We filled out some forms then waited. When it was our turn, they checked our blood pressure, asked a few questions about our health, and were sent to the vaccination area.
Inside it was very cold. They also had beds available for those who may feel dizzy or needed to rest after. Thankfully, I did not experience that.
The nurse who vaccinated me had light hands and I barely felt the injection. A day after and I don't have sore muscles. The only side effect that I experienced from Sinovac was sleepiness. In fact, I slept from 3pm to 10pm yesterday and then from 2am to 4am again.
I feel much better now and no longer sleepy.
I hope that everyone will get vaccinated and not be choosy on the vaccine that they will get. Sinovac or not, as mentioned many times, the best vaccine is the one that is readily available.
