My mother contracted covid 19 two weeks after getting her first dose of the vaccine. She is 71 years old, has sclerosis of the liver, diabetes, COPD (lung disease that blocks air) and was a smoker for over 55 years. Her symptoms from covid included coughing and feeling tired. She is fine now. I’m pretty convinced that the vaccine saved her life. If she had gotten covid without it I believe she would have at the very least been hospitalized.
As for me, well I contracted covid but feel fortunate that my symptoms weren’t severe. I had a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, aches, tiredness, and lost my sense of smell and taste. Same goes for my wife. We still don’t have our taste or smell back, and I get winded very easily now as does she.
My wife and I both received our first dose of Pfizer last week. Her arm was a little sore but that was about it. I on the other hand had an extremely sore arm where the needle went in. I couldn’t sleep on that side for a few days. On the second day my lymph node under my arm became swollen and incredibly sore. The pain has subsided but the swelling has not.
My government has decided to stretch out the second dose for all Canadians from a few weeks to 4 months due to a lack of vaccines. There is a lot of talk about how this large gap of time between doses could lead to less protection from the virus. Time will tell I suppose.
