Q: What was your life like before you got the vaccine?

Healthy, no underlying conditions.

Q: Would you like to share your reasons for getting vaccinated?

I got the vaccine to go back to work in the healthcare field.

Q: What was your reaction, symptoms, & timeline?

I have since had at least 2 sinus infections, the flu, covid, pain in my left shoulder, fatigue, headaches, and unexplained pelvic pain.

Q: What is your life like now, after getting the vaccine?

I never know what type of day I will have. Will I have a headache again? Will I have any energy?

Q: Share your experience with any medical care and any diagnoses you have received:

Have not been diagnosed with anything yet but I work in the medical field and I know my own body.

Q: Was your reaction reported, and what was the response?

It has not been reported. I honestly didn't know I could. I figured it wouldn't make a difference anyhow. Now, I am being mandated to get the booster and I'm scared of the reaction my body will have to it this time but yet again if I do not comply I lose my job my income.

Q: Is there anything that has helped, and have your symptoms improved?

Sinus decongestants and anti-inflammatory medicine has helped but nothing has improved.

Q: Have you had Covid before? What was your experience if so?

I worked in the public during the pandemic and never got sick! Two months after receiving the vaccine I had covid, yet wasn't around anyone infected?

Q: What do you wish others knew?

I got vaccinated to stay in the healthcare field and now I am afraid that I will not recover completely and will get worse after the booster. Not sure I made the right choice.
