I am really glad because our second vaccination is way better than our experience during the first dose. Not that the first one was bad, it’s just that the second one was too good. Our second dose was done in one of the leading pharmacies in Saudi Arabia. No one was there… no queues, no fear of crowding… the encoder was nice and fast. Although the one who did the vaccination seemed less experienced because he poked our arms like he was meaning to stab us, everything still went fine. I have observed the way he administered the vaccine during my husband’s turn so I kind of requested if he can pinch my arm because I am afraid he’d hit my bone, with that he told me, “it’s all alright, not painful at all!” — but he did it like how he’s done it initially and it was super painful. It was few seconds of pain. But of course, it went by just fine.
Our arm was swollen and tender and we feel all the feels. It’s popular with the AZ vaccine I guess, but it wasn’t as horrible like the first time. Our first dose has taken 2 days from us. We were in bed, feverish, but this one, we’ve totally recovered the next day.
God is so amazing! He’s provided us all these resources and I am truly grateful. I continuously pray that the same favor will be granted for everyone. I feel deeply sorry for my country, the Philippines because until now, vaccine is not available for all. I hope and pray for continuous provisions, support and desire to better our healthcare. I pray that our Government appoints officials who will not dishearten our people even more especially the frontliners and healthcare providers.
I pray that Covid ends, once and for all.
