I have had both vaccination shots of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. While I had some minor side effects like low energy and aches in joints on the first vaccination, with the second I really hydrated myself for the second and had virtually no side effects other than minor discomfort in my arm for 24 hours. I do hope you too get vaccinated when offered so that we can all get back to a safer global world closer to where we were over a year ago before the pandemic and also minimize risk and virus mutations.
My personal tips from medical friends on vaccination:
- Get hydrated 24 hours before and after. They suggested using electrolyte beverages like Gatorade, Pedialyte, etc.
- Don't drink alcohol before or immediately afterwards.
- Don't take ibuprofen or other pain aids that suppress inflammation or immune response. You want your body to react and respond to build the antibodies in the largest amounts.
- Pleas just do it so we can see each other in person in the future an also protect our communities and world.
