I get my second COVID shot on Monday

By N.A. Booko

Pittsboro, NC – I am scheduled to get my second COVID shot today at the Ag Building in Pittsboro. For a month, I thought I wouldn’t mind it, but now, not so sure. I have heard so many say that the second shot is no laughing matter. Fever, chills and so forth. At least a day of very uncomfortable feelings.

Chatham County health department personnel prepare COVID vaccinations.

Don’t know if it depends on the person, the person’s health or what determines how bad one feels. Not looking forward to it.

I know I don’t have any plans for Tue. Going to take it easy. Maybe have a portable electric heater on hand for quick warmth and have my mattress warmer hooked up and ready to go. I have commercial “headache” pills on hand to help soothe some of the discomfort. Don’t know that i can do more than that, other than hope there aren’t a lot of re-runs on T.V.- Of course, if it rains, that won’t help the mood one bit.

But glad to be getting the shot! Less worry.
