DETROIT – As Michigan COVID-19 cases continue to surge, doctors are putting out a warning to people considering skipping their second shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines: Don’t skip it.
If you’ve spoken with someone who was recently vaccinated against COVID, side effects have probably been part of the conversation.
Everyone has a different reaction. Now it appears some people are having second thoughts about getting the second dose. Vikki Williamson had such a bad reaction to the first Pfizer COVID vaccine shot that her second shot was cancelled.
“I couldn’t breathe and I felt like I was dying. I am like, ‘Oh my God, I’m dying,’” she said.
She wanted both shots but was unable to get the second one due to her reaction.
“I know some people who are not getting it at all and I have people who are going to get one shot and I am going to have to make do with that,” Williamson said.
Beaumont Health has administered 134,000 first shots so far. They reported that 1 percent of people have missed their second dose.
