Covid Vaccination part 2
Jen had already decided that she was going to do it…even with the fear. She has a super fear of needles so I went with her hoping to keep her calm. And since I was there a week before, I was hoping to walk her through the process as fast as possible and get out of there.
Jen got the paperwork filled out and 2nd shot scheduled, which meant, time to get in line to get the shot. We had to walk down this ominous hallway that reminded Jen of every horror flick she had ever seen. By time the nurse was ready to give her the shot, she was very nervous! She did it fast and it was over quick. Now, we have to wait 15 minutes before heading out…just to be sure there are no reactions.
We’re sitting there and just kinda watching everyone fill out their paperwork, moving from one line to another and Jen says quietly. I hope that was the right thing to do. At that exact moment, someone had knocked over the bucket of “sanitized pens” that was sitting on the table. It was about the size of the picture of the bucket below (without the cute confetti) with pens instead of pencils.
I watched this guy do the right thing, he lifted the bucket up grabbing all of the pens to stand it back up. I laughed out loud and said to Jen…there’s your sign that you are doing the right thing. He didnt even realize that he touched every pen…and went to his next line.
24 hours later, Jen seemed to be fine, no reaction but 36 hours(ish) after the vaccine she got a pretty bad headache and either that caused some vomiting or the vaccine. We are pretty sure it was vaccine related because she immediately felt better…stay tuned for Jen’s part 2..April 22nd
