After all of that worrying, I have gotten the COVID vaccine.
I did research for weeks, printed out article after article, read whatever I could on the CDC website, and talked to my co-workers that have gotten the shot.
I am being the guinea pig for my family. My family (as was I) has been distrustful of the vaccine. I decided I would be the first and let them know how it has been. I want to do my part in trying to get this pandemic under control. Once I get the second vaccine done I will discuss with my family about getting theirs as well.
I am trusting the science. I am trying to be a good role model for my family, and hopefully others in the black community, to follow. I’m trying to do the right thing.

You’ve definitely given me incentive to do it
hooray!! how did you feel after the first dose? which one did you get? i admire your desire to be a good role model for both your family and the Black community.
we cannot truly beat covid without the vaccine to help us reach herd immunity, so i hope your family will be more open to it after you share your experience.
I received the Moderna diseño. Oddly enough the shot itself doesn’t hurt at all! For the next two days though my arm was really sore. I found taking Ibuprofen or Aleve and making sure to move that arm around as much as possible helped me a lot. I go for the second dose Feb 2nd. After that dose and seeing the side effects, I’m going to talk to my parents about it.
