Second Pfizer vaccination

February 12, 2021 I was fortunate enough to receive the second Pfizer vaccination last week. Although the drive-through experience took a total of 3 ½ hours, it went very smoothly and easily. I was quite impressed by the courtesy and professionalism of the healthcare workers who manned the check-ins and delivered the vaccine. Like many others, I experienced no side effects or reactions after the inoculation. Even though I have now received the two vaccinations, my safety practices have not changed. I continue to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and avoid crowded areas. I do have some mental relief and am hopeful that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Many of my patients have told me that they have had enough of the pandemic and are exhausted and frustrated that their lives are still restricted. This is not an uncommon feeling. But I remain optimistic that within a few months, we will be able to have more freedom and be able to do some of the things we used to do before the pandemic.
