I've been trying to figure out the best way to say this, and decided that complete honesty is the way to go.

The day after I received my second COVID-19 vaccine, I was fine for about 14 hours. Then, I was hit with the chills and a low-grade fever. I spent about six hours in bed and that was it. That's all. It was over and done. I went home and went to bed.

I tell you this because I want you to know that your body has to fight back in order for the vaccine to work. For some people, this means a small reaction. For other people, they don't have any problems at all.

This brings up the big question: 'what are you afraid of?' Seriously, I had one of the stronger reactions and I had to go home and lay around for a bit. I didn't feel like I was dying or nauseated or anything severe; I just felt like I had to break a small fever. No big deal.

I also have to say that I was very sick the Sunday through Tuesday before I got the shot on a Thursday, so I was probably not up to speed to begin with even though I was feeling much better. I should also mention that my wife had none of these problems.

So there you go. Don't be afraid of the shots. You might get to lay around a bit, or you might just have a sore spot from the shot itself. None of this is a big deal, and the more of you who suck it up, be brave and get vaccinated, the quicker we get back to normal.
