Floyd County Medical Center nurse gets her first COVID vaccine dosage; encourages public to get it

Registered Nurse Allie Wesselmann from Floyd County Medical Center highly recommends that the general public receive the COVID vaccine when it is available to them.


Wesselmann received her first dose of the vaccine a couple days before Christmas:


According to the FDA, the most common side effects of the vaccine closely resemble the COVID virus:

  • Pain at the injection site
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills
  • Joint pain
  • Fever

While Wesselmann only observed being tired, she was told that those who have received the second dosage have been hit a bit harder.


Wesselmann says her and many FCMC employees will be getting their second injection on January 22nd.
