Under the weather after your COVID vaccine? Try these comfort foods

Nothing is more comforting than a big bowl of pho, right? Especially when you're sick.

More and more people are getting their COVID vaccines as the days go by. According to the CDC, it is normal for some people to experience side effects similar to those you would have when sick after getting their shot like fatigue, nausea, fever, chills and body aches. While this is a sign your body is building up protection and should go away in a day or two, it's not fun. If this is you, and you could use some comfort food, here are several options in the Seattle area:
