Receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine

As you may have seen in the media, Israel has been vaccinating citizens with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Because I’m diabetic, and over 40, I qualify for earlier access to the vaccine.

I was finally able to make my appointments for the two doses.

    I had my first dose last night. The injection was a bit more intense than the annual flu jab. This is probably due to me having somewhat scrawny shoulders, the large needle, and the medical professional possibly having studied at the Stabby Stabby School of Injections.

    Still, I’m glad I went.

    The morning after, my shoulder just feels sore, much like the flu shot. I haven’t seen any signs of super-powers developing just yet.

    It’s probably early days, though. I think it takes about a week for the initial dose to kick in.

      It’s the Pfizer one, so I believe so, yes.
