I shared with you my experience with my initial COVID vaccination with the Pfizer product. My second vaccination was given on Saturday (1/9/2021). Columbus Regional Hospital does this very efficiently.
My appointment was exactly the same time- 1:50 pm (who knew the Colts would be playing then?). The same policeman did the temperature check and I was directed to intake where they asked all the appropriate questions about recent health, allergies, and reactions to vaccinations. I hesitated a bit on some of those questions but felt my potential responses were not relevant and would delay what I needed to have done.
Allergy to medicines - lip swelling with losartan and hives with acetaminophen.
Food allergy (question was not asked and did not need to be asked of me) - Watermelon - no voice for an hour or so.
Anaphylaxis - yes to allergy skin testing but not to any vaccination.
So I have food and medication allergy and I had a reaction to an injection but it was in no way related to this vaccine.
I received that second injection - I felt it this time- the coldness.
Things were okay for Saturday, but Sunday was met with lassitude. The shoulder hurt a bit and interestingly there was a sympathetic response in my other shoulder - it hurt too. I did my chores but just didn't feel like doing them (not too unusual). I felt that way all day until that evening.
Now as a bit of background and clearly relevant to this story, I normally don't watch sports teams I favor for fear of jinxing them. The wife was looking at Masterpiece Theater- I had no interest there. When I got a streaming service going I went to a movie, but thought I would check the score of the Cleveland- Pittsburgh game- it was 28 - 0 in the first quarter!!
Now, I am from Cleveland - born and raised there. We had some championship years for the Browns, but that was in the last century. Not wanting to apply the jinx, I watched my movie. Once it ended, I went back to peek at the game - Cleveland was still winning big in the 4rth quarter- I figured it was safe and watched the game. The jinx ended.
Notably, all my lassitude evaporated immediately as the Cleveland Browns, in their first playoff game in years, beat Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh. What a cure for a possible COVID19 vaccination induced lassitude.
