  1. I got the Pfizer vaccine for work and I started to not feel well. My doctor is monitoring me. She says I should not give blood at this time. Otherwise I am perfectly healthy except for some side-effects. I suggest that you consult your physician before you volunteer or give a call to the number above. I called and they will not accept my donation.
