“Slightly cold with a low-grade fever, recovered the next day” Pfizer vaccinated Japanese woman in the United States

In the United States, priority coronavirus vaccinations began December of last year for medical personnel and the elderly. A 57-year-old Japanese woman from Kyoto, who lives in Michigan in the Midwest, talked about her experience as a medical professional who had already completed two priority vaccinations.

A woman working at the reception desk of a dental clinic applied from the health center website and was vaccinated with a Pfizer vaccine on January 14th and February 4th. The inoculation to the upper arm was administered 5 minutes after arriving at the garage of a local fire department drive-through.

“At the moment of injection, there was a brief moment of pain. But I was more concerned about there being side effects. ”

In Japan, vaccinations are generally done by subcutaneous injection with a shallow needle. However, this vaccine is administered by an intramuscular injection that pierces the muscle beneath the subcutaneous tissue. This method is used in many vaccines overseas, and women who’ve taken it have not felt uncomfortable.

After inoculation, you drive to a waiting area and wait for 15 minutes. A staff member was patrolling the area in preparation for anyone who may experience an anaphylactic shock caused by a sudden allergic reaction.

As for side reactions, some experience what feels like muscle pain in the arm. The night after the second vaccination, she experienced a slight case of chills and a slight fever, but she recovered the next day.

Of the seven American colleagues who were vaccinated at the same time, half took antipyretics due to fever. At work, I heard conversations such as “I was worried about side reactions, but I don’t want to get infected with corona” and “If I were to get the vaccination, it would be ok to then not wear a mask right?” She feels like everyone has a different understanding of the vaccine.

Most of her colleagues who are 50 or older have already been vaccinated or have a reservation for one. “Some young people and pregnant women are thinking about not getting the vaccination. Only bout one in four people in the workplace, which is less than I expected. ” she says.

Due to the influence of the Coronavirus, she has been unable to return home for more than a year and unable to visit her elderly mother. “I hope that vaccinations will progress so that the infection rate will come under control in both the United States and Japan.” she says.

In the United States, about 10% of the population, about 35.8 million people, have completed at least the first shot of the vaccination, but vaccinations to the general public have not yet begun. Amid concerns over supply delays, the US government forecasts almost all citizens can get the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine by the end of July. (Yuki Ishikawa)
