I advocate the vaccine for COVID-19

I am thankful to have had my Pfizer shot for COVID-19. I received my shot in the arm on Dec. 30. No side effects at all, I am glad to report.

I had no reservations at all about taking it. I know some people do, and maybe they have good reason to do so. However, I am opposed to these people who use Facebook and Instagram to try and scare people. They post hearsay and things that have no truth in them.

You know judges do not allow hearsay in a court of law in testimony. If someone testifies that someone say such and such, it is not allowed.

There are people that believe everything anyone tells them.

I can tell you it was the easiest shot that I have ever had. It was so quick I didn’t even know when the nurse did it. I made a picture when she put the needle to my skin.

I’m sure there were some that may have had a reaction. However, I have not heard of anyone dying of a reaction, and I have heard of thousands and thousands of people who have died from the virus.

At one point several months ago, it was people in New York that were the victims. Now, it has crept down to Tennessee. About three weeks ago, the News Leader had 17 obituaries in the newspaper. Not all of the deaths were from COVID-19, but some of them were.

A couple or three weeks ago, Tennessee ranked No. 1 in the country for COVID-19 infections when adjusted for population.

Hospitalizations are on the rise as well. In checking Baptist Hospital – Carroll County on Monday, there were 13 patients with the virus and one on a ventilator.

Of course there are some unknowns about the vaccine. However, to me, it’s better to take a chance with a vaccine than it is having the virus and maybe dying from it.

You just never know how this weird disease is going to hit you.

From day one when I heard there would be be a vaccine, I made it known that I would take it in a heartbeat.

I did and I’m thankful that I did.
