Got my second vaccination today. Once again, they were very friendly and efficient.
Like last time, they gave everyone a timer to hold, set at 15 min., and had us sit and wait. Un
like last time, every chair in the place was facing the same direction. I don't know, it just felt a little odd. I wanted to ask someone, "What time do we land in Chicago?"
Then I heard a few people behind me going, "Hey!" When I turned around I saw they were calling for the nurses' attention because a young man had fainted in his chair. Wow, those nurses were impressive. Within about 10 seconds there must've been about eight nurses around the guy, reviving him, talking to him, asking him how he felt. Another minute and they had him on a BP device (or pulse ox, or both?). Another minute later they had his feet up on a second chair, and seconds after that
they brought in a gurney to transport him elsewhere for observation.
can explain more, but I've heard that it's younger
people that have a higher chance of a bad reaction to the shot than us older folks.
Anyway, after that it was back to us just sitting there, with timers all around me going BEEP-BEEP-BEEP
. It felt a bit silly, so when the timer for the guy in front of me went BEEP-BEEP-BEEP
I got a laugh from several people by telling the nurse, "The pot roast is done!"
