I was on the fence about getting the vaccine and dragged my feet, but I got both of my Pfizer vaccines in June 2021. I had a headache, sore arm and was fatigued with the first shot for 36 hours. The 2nd shot I had no symptoms with it. Fast forward to now, 3 out of the 4 people in my household caught COVID the week of Christmas and the week after (including me). My 4 yo never caught it and can’t get the vaccine until he turn 5 in July this year. My oldest who is 10, isn’t vaccinated and had the least amount of symptoms compared to my fiancé and I who are fully vaccinated. I had the worst symptoms out of everyone and also have asthma as well as my 10yo. I have to say for me, I really think the vaccine kept me from being hospitalized due to my asthma flared up and I was sick for about a week. I’m still dealing with fatigue and headaches. The breathlessness finally went away. I’m almost 2 weeks out from testing negative.
