Getting the New Covid Shot – My Journey
On September 19th I got the New Covid Vaccine for XBB.1.5
By John L Elliott MS
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. I was there early in the morning at 9 AM at the near by CVS pharmacy. Got a picture of my sign up, which helped proved I signed up. What happened in the pharmacy, I got the Flu shot in one arm and the COVID shot in the other. Setting my iPhone timer for 15 minutes. While I waited I talked to another customer waiting for medication to be filled. She then signed up and got her shots as I left the store.
Here are vaccines I took.
Today I have 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.
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
A quick note two weeks later – I was exposed to COVID teaching. I did not get it.
