First Dose of Moderna

Today, my wife and I each got the first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Thanks Dolly!

So far — some nine hours later — no side effects to speak of. The injection site feels about as sore as a seasonal flu shot makes you feel. I can tell you that, again, so far, this injection is closer to the seasonal flu shot than to say the Shingrix shingles vaccine (which itself, was not bad).

So please, unless you have an underlying health condition that would prevent you from getting a COVID-19 vaccine, I would urge you to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

Regardless, let’s all stay the course and kick this virus in the ass: stay safe, wear a mask and social distance when in public or when with people who don’t live with you, avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces, and wash those hands with soap and water (or use hand sanitizer when soap and water aren’t available).
