Second Dose

So, yesterday morning, I got my second dose of the Moderna Covid19 vaxxine. I barely felt the jab itself… (Thank you, Melissa!) It was itchy for about five minutes. Later that afternoon, the injection site was sore, and I had a low grade fever..and all I wanted to do was sleep. Today, I was groggy all day. The injection site is still sore, and was swollen most of the day. No fever, but I am bundled up with hot tea, because I am still feeling the chills. I am just as glad I took the day off work, because driving with the way I felt… not that great an idea.

We are still trying to get Mom a shot. Hopefully, with the new J&J vax, that waiting list will get seen to sooner rather than later. I see there is already some…. controversy surrounding the J&J. There are articles claiming the vaccine is based on stem cell/ stem cell research from abortions. I looked at the J&J, and realised it wouldn’t be my first choice, because it uses pre-existing sciences…using adenovirus, which is actually a dead cod virus. That is similar to most Flu shots… which I cannot tolerate. Mom does not have the problems with the flu shot that I do, so she should be fine with the J&J vax. As far as people having an issue with the stem cell research…. I don’t have a problem with it. I have problem with forced procreation, but that’s something totally different, and maybe a topic for another post another day.

Everyone who can get one of the vaccines SHOULD. It’s the only way to deal with the pandemic: to slow it, stop it, preserve life, and get us back to some semblance of ‘normal life’.
