Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | First dose of Astrazeneca Covid vaccine (117)

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

Denial is one of those things that sometimes saves us from going insane, but we cannot continue to bury our head in the sand. We must lift our chins, otherwise we’ll simply miss the most glorious fleeting moments right in front of our eyes.
My husband and I both had our first Astrazeneca Covid vaccine yesterday. He’s came out unscathed, but here I am feverish and nauseated with a pounding headache.
But, we do don’t we. We must take the step for the greater good. We must fight for the people around us.
I beg you, book your vaccine if you are over 50 years old. It’s the only way as a community we may have hope for a kinder future.
