WELCOME TO EDITION 809 of GRAPEVINE
Last week – Wednesday 10 March 2021 – I received a letter from the Ministry of Health to inform I could vaccinate against Covid.
I went into vaccine.gov.sg and registered for my two appointments.
The following evening, I was given the first dose of Pfizer-BioNTech.
Between registration at Tanjong Pagar Community Club; being given the injection; and, hanging around for the 30-minute rest period, the entire process took an hour.
After being vaccinated, these are the main side-effects I suffered:
- Desire to jump up and celebratea la Bart Simpsonby shouting “Whoo Whoo!!”
- Craving for Champagne
- Hunger for food
- Slight sore the next day where I had been vaccinated (it did not prevent me from doing my 7 sets of push=ups)
After my workout, I went to a shopping mall.
On the way home, I felt incredibly fatigued and was near dozing off behind the wheel.
That 15-minute drive, every time I came up to a set of traffic lights, I took the added precaution of shifting the gear into neutral.
And took a nap as soon as I reached home.
The moment I woke up, the intense craving for Champagne returned.
This side-effect is now becoming serious because it has not gone away.
Wishing you A Very Good Week.
