On September 19th I got the New Covid Vaccine for XBB.1.5

By John L Elliott MS – Getting the New Covid Shot

How I got the New Covid Vaccine.  On September 17th, I went to the CVS website and signed up to get the new Flu Quadrivalent vaccine and new Covid XBB.1.5. vaccine.  My Journey to avoiding the new SARS-CoV-2 viruses.

At the pharmacy

What happened in the pharmacy, I received the Flu shot in one arm and the COVID shot in the other.   Setting my iPhone timer for 15 minutes.   I waited 15 minutes to be sure I had no adverse reactions.  Thereafter, the rest of my day went fine.  I felt good.  I went shopping.

Here are vaccines I took.

New Covid and new Flu vaccine

Afterward the next day,  I had a little bit of pain in both arms.  Much like any other vaccine shot I have taken.   As with other vaccines, I took in the past.  Decided to take it easy for the next 24 hours.  I also picked up some more masks from Home Depot after my shots. Looked online to find out what the possible side effects are.  I wrote these side effects in a post here.

One of my friends from high school.  Got his shots later in the day.

Update – It is two days and I have no pain in my arms and did not develop any adverse issues.

A Bit Later

Exposed to  COVID.  I did not get it.
