From my earlier post – Update on Scheduled COVID-19 Vaccine – April 13, 2021, I had the Pfizer first shot about 4 hours ago. It went faster than I thought. My appointment was at 10:30, but by 10:21, I was in the waiting area for the 15 minute observation. Once the time was up, I scheduled my second shot before leaving.
The hardest part was the location was in the downtown area, the part where riding a bike on the sidewalk is a significant fine. Before I got to that area, I rode on the street as it had a bike lane and walked my bike to the location once I was close enough. Thankfully, they had a bike rack where I could lock up my bike. After leaving, I stuck to the bike lane as long as possible when I headed back to my place to pick up my backpack and head out again.
I learned a long time ago not to look when I am getting a shot or blood drawn. If I do, I tense up and that’s not a good thing. They had plenty of spaces to check in and plenty of volunteers to help direct traffic. Lots of people to give the vaccine. The waiting area was very large once you had gotten the shot. I only had to wait 15 minutes as I had never had a negative reaction to any past shot or medicine. If someone had a bad reaction, they had to wait 30 minutes before leaving.
