Update on My Second Dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine
February 25, 2021
Thanks to everyone who was pleased to hear I did well with the first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and who sent prayers that my second dose would go as equally smoothly. I feel honored to be part of our Wholistic community, and have immense gratitude that we care so deeply for each other!
Since I know people have been asking, I want to share that I took the second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on February 7th. As with the first dose, I had minimal muscular discomfort at the site of the injection. The day after receiving the vaccine, I had mild aches in my hips; similar to how it feels if you sit the wrong way for a long time. Beginning the following day, and since, I have had no other symptoms.
