Good Riddance!

Hello friends, hope you all are well and happy. Six days ago, I took my second jab. One of my face book friend wrote that the after effect of taking the jab is just like the plight of a thief who is thoroughly thrashed after getting caught in the act. Believe me, I literally went through the feeling for three days, the first time and a whopping six days the second time.

Actually, I got caught while visiting a superspeciality clinic for my regular check ups. As there was a lot of time to kill before our turn, we decided to go out and have some coffee. After having our warm cups of coffee, we were just strolling around and bumped into a man, my hubby knows! That too, the man in charge of the vaccine section. He duely enquired whether we have all taken our double doses or not. As there is very lukewarm response towards the second dose takers, he was looking for prospective candidates.

It was a catch 22 situation, I was the only one who wasn’t fully jabbed and the second was about to be due. We politely shared the information. The person whom we used to see neck deep into his job of managing the rush of vaccine seekers is now seeking out the one who is due. He was going out, but immediately decided to take us to the vaccination section and through Co Win portal found out that I’m due. He asked me to go inside and take the jab.

The waiting section was almost empty as it was nearing the closing time of 5 PM. I couldn’t get the advantage of making up my mind or anything, directly taken inside and got vaccinated. The nurse informed me if I have any discomfort at night, must take a paracetamol tab, as if I didn’t know! Everything happened so quickly that I didn’t even have time to panic. After our check up, we managed to return home by seven.

By night, I realised that it was time for the thrashing. My whole body started aching, fever shooting upto 102.ยฐF. My family assured me it will go away in due time. The next day, nausea, body chill was added to it. We waited patiently for the forced patient to recover. I almost forgot that I was once without fever and aches!

On the fourth day, the ordeal continued without abetment. The fact that my fever just refused to go away,got us all panicked. My daughter consulting her seniors, decided to go for fever profile tests and I was put into prescribed antibiotics apart from paracetamols. On the fifth evening the result came, I was free of any kind of infection, the culprit was only the vaccine!

Today is the seventh evening and I’m writing this post, is the ample proof that I overcame the fever at last. This morning, much to the relief of all of us, I remembered to be normal again! I felt elated like a child who suddenly discovers that he could walk.

Friends, this is my vaccination story. All the other three of my family didn’t have any of it. I think very few people in the world might have faced such trouble as I did. But it’s good riddance anyhow!

Wishing you all a very happy weekend. Adieu for now.

  1. Glad to hear you’re fine now. It must have been quite stressful apart from the bodily discomfort. I read in the papers that there are stocks of unused vaccines which will expire in a few months, hence the government’s drive to use them all up. And you just happened to give them that opportunity!๐Ÿ˜Š Stay well and safe.

    1. Having no or mild symptoms is the norm. I must be the exception, that’s why I mentioned. It’s still worth the pain….the safety shield against the dreaded one.
      Thanks for your wishes. You also stay blessed ๐Ÿ™


      1. Getting fever in the first dose is the norm Mousumi…and many get in second dose too…it is just the body’s response to a foreign body being injected inside….so you are absolutely normal…stay blessed always๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ™

  2. Mousumi, I have had both shots and a booster. I had some mild symptoms the next day after each. I am sorry you had such an intense and long-lasting response. Glad you are feeling better. The good thing is, neither of us is likely to have covid again! Take care! โค
