I'm getting the covid vaccination today and I'm scared

I’ve gotten the flu vaccination 3 times and all 3 times I’ve gotten really sick. One time I was pregnant and I ended up going out on pregnancy leave from work for 3 months because I was so ill. It triggered terrible flus in me. They say it can’t give you the flu and I understand that but still I got sick. Once I was sick for three weeks with flu symptoms, fever, congestion, diarrhea, stomach upset, weight loss, fatigue. I don’t want to get sick. But I guess it’s better than dying. I’m scared though.

I hope you’re alright. I had a bad reaction for the first Pfizer shot. Not so bad the second time. But honestly, I don’t think I was really vaccinated, because a lot of people lie about me and I have enemies.

How did it go? How do you feel? Did you schedule your second dose?

It went fine. I feel well. They will call to make the second appointment when it gets closer to the time they said. Thank you for asking. You are such a sweetie pie.

I guess if you are going to have a reaction it’s usually within the first hour, so I think I’ll be fine. It’s been 2 hours now.

Some people have symptoms the next day like me. But they say it doesn’t last long

I hope it keeps going so well.
I don’t feel much after my first dose, just a sore arm but besides that nothing.
