My First Jab of the Covid-19 Vaccine

September 03, 2021 0 Comments

Are you afraid to get vaccinated? Me too! I also have doubts but I keep on praying for signs and He gave me a lot. I keep on praying before and during the day of my vaccination... And He calmed my anxious mind and I wasn't nervous anymore when it's time to get my first jab... 

They checked our temperature and Blood Pressure before we get vaccinated. Usually, my BP goes up every time I had it checked because I'd get really nervous. But I was surprised because this is the first time that I get a normal BP result on the first try. Prayer works! :) 

Everything goes smoothly after I got vaccinated with Coronavac (Sinovac), with no other side effects aside from the pain at the site of injection. It's been 3 days since I got vaccinated and so far I feel good with just a little muscle pain on my upper arm and sometimes feeling tired and sleepy.

Not all people who got vaccinated experience the same side effects, but these side effects are normal because this is a sign that our body is building immune protection.

Other people will experience common side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine such as:

  • Some pain, swelling on the arm where you received the vaccine
  • Chills, or mild fever
  • Tiredness
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain or muscle aches
These side effects typically go away within a few days.

Severe side effects are very rare, but could include:
  • Itching
  • Fainting
  • Vomiting
  • Severe allergic reaction
  • Wheezing, difficulties in breathing, or shortness of breath
Let a health worker know immediately if you experience any of these side effects. [Source:]

I am glad I decided to get vaccinated, I'm looking forward to my 2nd dose before the month ends. Hopefully, it will go smoothly too with no complications. 

By the way, the day I got vaccinated was also the day that I became officially part of theAsianParent's #TeamBakuNanay. I am proud and happy to be a part of this wonderful community that conducts informative and meaningful campaigns which aim to educate everyone about the effectiveness of vaccines in protecting our family's health.

Hopefully, more people will be encouraged to get vaccinated, too. As for me, I choose to get vaccinated to protect myself, my loved ones, and the vulnerable people around me. 

Thank you, City Government of Davao! The vaccination site was well organized and the process goes smoothly and orderly. 

Praying for everyone's safety. Stay safe everyone and ALWAYS follow the protocol when going out even when you're already done with the 1st and 2nd doses of the Covid-19 vaccine! :)
