I got my second poke yesterday!
A few hours after getting my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, I was very tired and took a five hour nap, waking up just in time to go to bed. Unfortunately, I woke up in the middle of the night soaked in sweat with a pounding headache and a variety of bad dreams marching through my brain.
It was an awful night, but I eventually got back to sleep and woke up at 10 A.M. feeling great. The next day was filled with dog park adventures, cooking delicious food, reading books, and playing video games.
Totally worth it.
Trading a night of weird dreams and restless sleep for catching COVID-19 is an excellent trade.
If you haven't gotten your vaccine yet, please do! It will protect you and others from an awful and potentially fatal sickness. The people in my life who caught COVID-19 had an awful time for weeks dealing with its effects.
Vaccines are safe and effective. I consider it a part of my civic duty and am proud to have done my part.
Let's play board games at my place soon, y'all!
