Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?
Very active outside and with my family. Would Mt. Bike 1500 or more miles of single track each summer and fall. Snowboard and skate ski in the winter months. Basically lived to be active and outside. Have a family and I’m 46 years old with two teenagers a daughter and son. Work as a School Counselor and never really thought about having a vaccine reaction before these shots came along. Some minor health conditions like allergies and Sleep Apnea. Have never not been able to do anything because of my health.
Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?
1st shot of Pfizer on 1/29/21 I didn’t take well and after 20 minutes my arm and face went numb and I felt like I was going into anaphylaxis. I had intense dizziness, fast heart rate, confusion, and the immediate response of “this is bad something is very wrong.” The reaction was intense for 3 to 5 minutes and then lessened greatly. The next 24 hours I felt sick and my heart was skipping and doing weird things. The second day I was only tired. The 3rd day I felt fine.
