shot #1 done!

Hello everyone and greetings from West Chester University!

Yes….. I JUST GOT MY FIRST COVID SHOT!

It has been a perfectly crappy day full of babysitting adult toddlers in Facebook groups so this is the highlight of my day.

Truthfully today is the highlight of 2021 so far.

I was beginning to wonder if this day would ever arrive.

The registration process was pretty seamless and the people here are so nice!

I am on the 30 minute post-shot wait and so far I just feel a little warm and somewhat thirsty. I can be shot reactive so I sit for 30 minutes while most everyone else sits for 15 minutes. There is a paramedic sitting with us in the post shot room.

I was surprisingly emotional when I got my shot.

I feel like I can breathe again.

This has been a hell of a year since we all entered the COVID19 world in which we now exist.

  1. So glad for you. I was told to eat a full lunch and be very hydrated before the shot. Had mine Mon. next to Penn in Downingtown at Oakland’s. Make sure you drink plenty of water for the second one… 🙂

  2. Carla, I’m so glad you were able to get the shot. My husband and I received ours 3/3, so second shot is 3/31. It’ll feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my mind.. We already made reservations for dinner for two weeks after that to celebrate.I won’t feel so afraid to go in to stores or be around other people though I’ll still wear my mask, and keep distance. I have a number of high risk health issues so had panic attacks when I need to be around other people. I can halfway breathe again.

    A whole other world awaits.

    Be well,
    Lois

  3. It is a relief to finally be recognized on a list after registering in 5 different places. I got mine through Penn Med Main Line Health in Radnor. I must congratulate all the volunteers and workers for their efficiency. Husband who has only a primary care doctor had to drive 1 hour to a Rite Aid pharmacy to get his. A family member had to do an all night vigil to get the appointment! I am sure there are many stories coming out of this to make a book. News today: A wax figure of Trump had to be removed in Texas because of too many people damaging it by hitting and scratching his face.
