Booster Shots and a Merry Christmas

Blog Oklahoma Newsletter

So where was I last week with the newsletter?

Donna and I got our COVID-19 vaccine booster shot. We went down to our local Walmart Pharmacy on a Friday afternoon, checked in, got our shots, and were off about our day in 30 minutes. It was quick, easy, and somewhat painless.

So, what does that have to do with the newsletter? Well let’s just say it was not a fun weekend.

Donna got the worst of it with a mild fever, body aches, and slept most of the weekend. This happened with her first two vaccinations too.

Me? I had a weekend long headache and was in a particularly foul mood. I also slept a lot. This was odd for me; I had no reaction to the first two vaccinations at all. Besides the sore arm that is.

We both want to make this clear, we have no regrets getting the booster at all. It’s just the way vaccinations work. Sometimes they’re rougher than others.

If you’re not vaccinated for COVID-19 yet, please get it. Yes, you might feel ill for a few days. That’s it. A minor inconvenience compared to the alternative. If you’re unsure you need to get the booster shot, ask your doctor.

Well, this really wasn’t where I wanted to leave off, but it’s just how it worked out. This is the last newsletter for 2021. The next few weeks are just going to be so full. But before I go, I want to leave you with this big announcement. The Blog Oklahoma Podcast will return on January 9, 2022. Yay!!

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year.

More later. Time to wrap presents. See you in 2022.
