32. I have a real needle phobia. I told them not to show me the needle

(I'm really a big baby that way) and the jab itself was no big deal.

I got Moderna. Most people I know had no reaction or some soreness. I had a little more than that, but even what I had was no big deal: after about 5 days, the injection site got hot and red and itchy and sore and there was a bump in a circle about 2 inches around the injection site. I iced it and moved my arm a lot and it got progressively better and was gone on day 10.

I read that a mild reaction is a sign that your body is building up resistance to the virus.

It was not really painful and in no way debilitating. It was as if I had bumped my arm on the corner of something.

I'll let you know how dose 2 goes in mid February.
