Full of Pfizz

Well, this morning I took my second trip to City West Convention Centre for my second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine. It all went off smoothly, except the queues were very much longer than last time so it took me about 90 minutes from start to finish. Most of the extra time was spent queuing outside which wasn’t too bad because it wasn’t raining. Chatting to one of the volunteers on the way I learned that they are doing about 4,500 a day at this centre, which is getting on for 500 an hour.

When I left after my jab I noticed the outdoor queue was much longer than it had been when I joined this morning, so those just starting to wait were probably in for at least two hours before they got jabbed. Still, after everything that we’ve been missing out on for the past year and a bit, what’s a couple of hours?

Other than the increased numbers the experience was similar to my first dose: well-run, efficient and friendly. Thanks again to all concerned!

So that’s me fully vaccinated although disappointingly I don’t seem to be able to receive 5G signals and haven’t received my instructions from Bill Gates yet.

Anyway, now I’m back home about an hour later and have so far no ill-effects. We have an examination board meeting this afternoon so let’s hope I don’t flake out during it.

UPDATE: 8 hours on and I’m definitely feeling a bit tired…zzzz

UPDATE: 24 hours on, I was more-than-usually tired last night and that continues but I experienced no fevers or anything like that. Slight discomfort in the arm where the injection was given.
