I got my second Pfizer vaccination shot today at the UCSF mobile site at Fresno City College. I’m sure that my arm will be sore like it was last time and I hear from some that the second shot hits you physically more than the first dose. I don’t have any medicinal allergies or any other health challenges so I feel like this is a done deal.
I’ll need to wait another 14 days for the vaccine to do its complete work and program my immune system fully but it’s done. I put my vaccine card in a safe place and I am proud to have done my part in fighting this pandemic and helping my city, state, country, and by extension the world combat this (hopefully) once in my life time event.
I got my first COVID-19 vaccine shot today! Ronan made his appointment over the weekend and I decided to check out My Turn and see about getting mine too. The registration and sign up process was relatively purpose and I got an appointment at the UCSF vaccination site at Fresno City College.
The UCSF mobile site at Fresno City College is a drive-thru location. I didn’t even have to get out of my car which was super easy and very convenient. Don’t forget to wear a short sleeve shirt if you can as that’s the easiest way to get your shot in whatever shoulder you choose. Obviously shots are never fun and I was expecting some mild discomfort but I was pleasantly surprise that I didn’t feel a thing.
Tune out the noise and protect yourself, protect your family, and your fellow citizens. The more people that get vaccinated sooner, rather than later, is the best practice and strategy to get us out from under this pandemic. The vaccine is safe, free regardless if you have insurance or not, and the right thing to do for our city, state, country and global community.
