Based on a couple of friends experience, it will all pass and tomorrow be a memory. It means her body is setting up defenses. That's a good thing but sorry she is in pain.John -thanks and me too! She also says she is having incredible back pain. As you say, hopefully over quickly.
Malcolm, if you are in the US the priority from the government is first line workers and then people over 75 which would put your father in line. It does depend on the individual states as to their rules though.Sounds somewhat logical, but I'm not sure reactions can be ascribed solely to age. They did say some people might have short-term fever and body aches as a reaction, but I'm not sure they've drawn any conclusions as to why this affects some but not others.
There are some that claim similar reactions to the influenza vaccine, but I've never had any reaction to a flu shot that I've had every year for 25+ years now. My 76-year-old father refuses to get the flu shot, even with COVID around, because he supposedly had a bad reaction to a flu vaccine back in the 1970's, though neither my mother or I recall what he describes (basically being bedridden and unable to speak for a week). No idea if he'll be agreeable to the COVID vaccine or not, whenever he's eligible (which given his age and heart-related problems, he should be at the front of the line for the first batch of regular citizens).
Excellent news and, yes, good chicken soup does contain magical properties.update on my daughter is that she is feeling MUCH better this morning as expected. We took her some chicken soup my wife made last night and I told her it was all due to the magic in that...
But wait until you hear the voices.Today - slight soreness in the arm at the injection site, as to be expected. No other symptoms/issues. I'd liken it to how it feels when you run into the cabinet (likely the same as when one of John's brother's punches your arm) - but no bruise. Unless I think about it or move my arm in a specific direction I really don't notice it at all.
