How rough was the second dose for you? ( First dose early December 2021 and Second 20 January 2022) PS: To those asking why I took long to take the vaccine...I relocated to another country in the middle of the pandemic and could not get the vaccine for free until I become a resident.

Agree or disagree - media peeps. Knowing all the ins and outs and nuances of Facebook ads is a pretty hard technical skill? I am sick of people thinking it’s so easy.
Hey guys! Went to college with full intention of getting into medical school. Graduated right before the pandemic which gave time to think long and hard about going to med school.
