COVID-19 Can Still Hit Hard Even If You’re Vaccinated
By now, most everyone knows that getting a COVID-19 vaccine doesn't mean you won't still possibly contract it. The idea is if you do get it after being vaccinated, the symptoms will be lessened.
Last week, both of my parents and at least one younger sibling tested positive for COVID-19. Both parents are vaccinated and have been for quite some time and mother works in a hospital, so who knows where they got it from. No matter where it was contracted, it hit them hard.
Fevers, chills, weakness, and exhaustion were some of the symptoms experienced. Actually they are still experiencing that a week into the positive test result.
This is just a reminder that COVID-19 is a real thing. Even if I personally believe that death numbers were and are inflated, it's not necessarily a joke if someone does get sick from it. Back when I had it, I was incredibly tired and had a minor sore throat and cough, nothing crazy. My folks this time have basically been lying on the couch doing nothing because of the lack of energy.
Maybe this is the Delta variant and maybe not, but two well set doses of one of the vaccines and they are still hurting units from catching it. I'm not a doctor or a healthcare professional, so I'm not offering medical advice, and you should certainly do what is right for you and your family.
