The last time I got my second dose of the Pfizer Coronavirus vaccine was in March.
Now I’m sorry, I’m not going to get into the tired debate of should you get the vaccine or not to get it, even though here in the city of New York, you either get it or you don’t get work.
This isn’t what this post is all about.
I just know that at 68 years old, I have to get a booster shot because I had the Pfizer shot more than 6 months ago.
Now even though this is the greatest time of the year for the Sports Diva, (that’s hockey season in case you didn’t know), I kept putting off getting the booster shot even though I was eligible to get it when it was first available to New Yorkers over 65 around 25 September.
Last week, I made an appointment at my local Walgreens, which is a drug score located all over the United States, no matter what state you live in.
My appointment was today, October 13th, around 11:45am.
As with the other two shots that I received, I brought the necessary papers, New York state ID, Medicare card for those over 65, and the most important thing here in New York, my vaccination card.
As for the side effects, not going to lie and say that I had none.
My arm was sore, and a few hours later, it still is but Tylenol is my best friend right about now.
I can deal with the soreness in my arm from a vaccine, compared to what the alternative would be.
