I Got Covid 19 Vaccine Shot Last Week

Entrance to vaccine shots administration

Luckily, I got first shot of Covid-19 vaccine on December 18, 2020, last week. The date was exactly the same with vice president of USA, Mike Pence.

The difference between Mike Pence and I is he was injected in Washington DC, while I had done in my city, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

I was included as first recipients in the city. Vaccine brand called as Biontech – Pfizer needs two shots.

In my cases, two shots and dates are:

- Primary shot, done on December 18, 2020

- Booster shot will be on January 8, 2021.

The interval between primary shot and booster shot is 21 days. Quite shorter compared to another vaccine (Moderna vaccine).

As you might know that the effective rate of both Biontech – Pfizer and Moderna are higher:

- 95% for Biontech – Pfizer

- 94.5% for Moderna

Just for comparison of effective rate for other two familiar vaccines are:

- 50% for H1N1 flu vaccine

- 90% for varicella vaccine.

Moreover, after getting shot, nothing happen to my body and feeling. Then, I was asked to stay in the specific room for 15 minutes.

I was observed to see “adverse reaction.” No “anaphylaxis,” a serious allergic reactions. Nothing happen at all.

You might wonder that why I could be included as first phase recipients of Covid-19 vaccine?

No, I am not older than 75 years old.

I am one of the healthcare personnel “who worked directly with Covid-19 patients.” 100% of our patients are survive.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!!

  19. Estimada amiga, Evi, lo primero es felicitarte y darte las gracias por la buena y arriesgada labor que estáis haciendo todos los sanitarios del mundo, y por esos buenos resultados del centro donde trabajas.
    Imagino que al vacunarte te habrá dado mucha tranquilidad y más trabajando en un sitio de tanto riesgo. Aquí en España comienzan a vacunar contra el COVID el próximo domingo día 27.
    Te deseo unas Felices fiestas y un próspero y venturoso 2021.
    Un fuerte abrazo.

  38. Thankfully, you already got the vaccine, because working with people with Covid the risk is super high. The vaccines administered here in Portugal are also from Pfizer. I think that I should only be called to get the vaccine in the 2nd or 3rd stage it will never be before April 2021.
    I hope you had a Merry Christmas and I wish you a Happy New Year.
    Hugs and all the best

  48. Espero de corazón que sigas así, sin ningún efecto secundario ra
    ro o extremo, que se han oído y visto efectos atroces, de aquellos que dirías ha sido peor el remedio que la enfermedad.
    Yo tengo montones de dudas la verdad. Y ahora se oye que la OMS dice que vienen nuevas pandemias, hummmm, que pasa que se han anunciado diciendo que venimos!!!! Como se puede saber como para hacerlo publico que llega otra y otra y mas distintas? No se...seré yo, pero cuando algo no lo entiendo me hace temblar.
    Besote y espero que sigas bien y que tras la segunda dosis sigas sintiendote en plena forma.
