So, on Friday (17 September 2021) I had my first Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination jab.
The second is apparently on the 29 October.
And, how was it?
Let me firstly say, I'm a big believer in natural immunity following coronavirus infection.
And 80 percent of South Africans have already had the virus according to Discovery Health.
I think I already had it in December 2019, and the lock-downs might have been a complete waste of time for me.
However sure is sure, and I don't want it again at any cost or odds.
Besides, my parents and the people I really love have had their shots, so I'd rather go down with the ship (LOL).
And never mind the debates about "vaccine passports" in South Africa, if the doo-doo should hit the fan and you really need to hop on a plane you
don't want to be stuck with these issues.
What you haven't had the jab? You can't get on a plane!
Besides, if gyms get these "passports", I can't imagine life without my training buddies.
I'm also already on ARVs for my HIV for years now, so I'm 70 percent "big pharma" chemicals anyway.
When I finally got into the room with the two nurses, I said I'm going to have a glass of wine after this.
And the nurse was like, no you shouldn't.
I'm like: "What no wine"?
I was still arguing about the wine and surely the shot won't go through my liver, and it had already been in and out of my arm.
I thought it's like a Polio or Measles shot in primary school.
But nope, a few seconds later it hit me.
Wow, this is actually stronger meds than I thought.
"OK, thanks, bye".
I was supposed to wait for 15 minutes afterwards (yeah now I know why), but I just wanted to meet my mom at the pizzeria for lunch, and also have a
Mom's like: "You don't look happy at all".
Well, I did have one glass of wine with lunch, but then it was home and bed.
I had a good workout with my trainer the Saturday, but the wine still wasn't nice.
This evening I think I'm finally back in form though.
A pic: just before the jab (they didn't want selfies past this point).
