Describe the symptoms and the timeline of the reaction.


I kept a journal of my experience so far. Very much in line with a lot of others here. This happened after the first shot, I will not be getting the second shot based on my experience.

My biggest concern now is we are being left behind. Vaccine passports are coming, what will happen to us? I WANT to be protected but the first shot injured me. What next? Here's my journal, vaccinated April 28.

Pfizer vaccine April 28 left deltoid
