It has been 7 days after I got vaccinated and I think this is the best time to share my experiences. I actually opted to release my vaccination story a little bit late to have a review of the effects of the vaccine on me.
October 11 when my Dad told me that I was scheduled for vaccination the following day for a morning schedule. He told me that the one who told him was the Barangay Health Worker which is a family friend of ours.
I woke up so early and arrived at the mall at around 8:30. I even stopped by the other mall because I left my valid ID (face shield). Upon my arrival, I got a form which has a number that will be called for the actual screening.
I got number 243 and the line was quite a queue already. I bumped into my friend and we hang out a bit in the SM Hypermarket while waiting for our number to get called since the guard wasn't allowing us to enter the mall.
Finally getting in the mall. There was a lot of power interruption during this day and it was awful! I waited for this line for about two hours and here is the annoying part, I received a message from my sister telling me that it wasn't my schedule. My schedule was the following day (Wednesday). It sucks, right? I opted to stay there for about half an hour thinking that I will get a chance to get vaccinated that very day but when I was sitting 3 rows before the announcer's table, he already told us that we should just get back at around 12:30 because it is already lunch break.
So I went home very annoyed with everyone; my dad, the BHW, and the power corporation here in Albay. I contacted my Aunt if she can get me vaccinated in the afternoon and she told me that she will drop me off at the mall. But the odds weren't on my side that day. After I was done eating lunch, the rain started and almost lasted for an hour. It stopped at around 1 pm causing me to be late for my 12:30 call time. I was already annoyed, tired, and drained so I decided not to push through and just wait the following day for my actual appointment.
I just got pissed off that day because I wasted time, they wasted my time instead of me taking those long hours to review for my exam.
I went to the mall earlier than the time that I went on my first attempt. The distribution of the forms was already organized and they check if your name is included in the list.
I got number 203 for being early that day and we were already allowed to go inside the mall. I seated beside my neighbor and our numbers weren't really far from each other. I must say that on this day, I was actually prepared.
There are 6 steps. At this point, we were given envelopes that have forms in it and we got interviewed.
Step 2. The nurses got our blood pressure. They do not allow you to get vaccinated if your blood pressure is too high. What they did was, instruct the individuals that have high blood pressure to sit down for a bit and drink water, and after that their blood pressure will be monitored again.
Step 3. They asked me if I have allergies to medication and I said no. At this point, I already got hungry so I decided to take out my biscuit.
Step 4. This is the station where you will sign an informed consent form for the Pfizer-Biotech COVID-19 Vaccine.
Step 5. This is where the attending physician will sign your forms.
Step 6. This is where the vaccine is going to be administered. The administration of the vaccine didn't hurt that much but I was shocked because the nurse didn't inform me that she was about to inject the vaccine. It's like a bite of an ant.
We weren't allowed to leave yet because we are still getting monitored for the possible side effects after getting the vaccine. It didn't take long after I got cleared out and went home because there is no one to take photos of me on the vaccination background. Hahaha.
Well, there were three side effects: Headache, Chills, and Heavy arm. The headache that I experienced lasted only for a day because I drank paracetamol before and after my first dose. Though the chills were reoccurring for about 4 days it is tolerable. I just took plenty of rest and drank a lot of water. The heaviness in my arm lasted also for 4 days and I wasn't able to lift or carry small stuff because I was too worried about it.
I didn't drink coffee and work out after I got vaccinated because it wasn't ideal. Upon during my research, it says that cardiac arrest is prone to the newly vaccinated and it is advised not to do tiring activities and to not drink coffee.
I highly encourage you to get vaccinated. Some vaccines are proven to be effective in fighting other illnesses. The recent research was about Pfizer's effectiveness.
Getting vaccinated nowadays is a heroic act because it is not just you who protects yourself from the Coronavirus but you are also protecting the people around you especially your loved ones.
If you are not yet decided whether you want to get vaccinated or not, take your time and think about it. Do not pressure yourself. You can always do research. If you have a comorbidity, you just have to be really honest with the vaccination team so your health will not be at risk.
We can get back to the old normal if we will participate in this worldwide solution. Let's fight the stigma and hopefully, the world will get back to where it used to be.
