The COVID Vaccine kicked our butts

Well I’ve missed a few days of posting for my no added sugar month, but with good reason. My kids & I got our COVID vaccines. We were not among the lucky ones who didn’t have side effects.

We got the one dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine around 11:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. The shot itself was a little bit more painful than a flu shot. We all agreed on that. The side effects started for me first. At around 6:00 I started feeling tired. The aches soon followed. By midnight I was aching all over and had a headache & chills. I could tell I had a fever but somehow couldn’t find a thermometer in the house! 😡 I was restless all night and had some nausea and indigestion. By morning most of the aches were gone except for the headache. I took some more Tylenol and it went away pretty fast. I spent Sunday napping & laying around. We stayed in and watched our church service on t.v. If you want to check it out on Youtube you can click here:

As for the kids, they didn’t start feeling bad until late Saturday night. They mainly had aches and fatigue and also were lazy on Sunday.

I respect everyone’s right to choose whether or not to get the vaccine. I feel like we did our part to help stop the spread. We will continue to wear our masks and sanitize though, just to be safe. Take care!

  1. Thanks for sharing the side effects and overall experience…there’s a lot of anxiety and uncertainty regarding taking the vaccine or not…so information from those who have taken it sure helps 👍🏻😊
