I just got my Flu shot!

My father and therapist convinced me to get a flu vaccine.
I finally caved in and decided to go to the local pharmacy and get one.

Because it was my first flu vaccine ever, the pharmacist who gave me the shot told me to wait around the pharmacy to see if I get a reaction to it.

I’m kind of anxious now because I’m feeling a bit jittery and I’m not sure if I’m having some sort of negative reaction to it.

My heart is racing a bit.

I’m glad I finally got vaccinated though.

I’m kind of proud of myself for doing it.

Anyone else get a flu shot?

I’ve never had a flu jab and won’t be getting it this year either. Maybe next year.

Thanks @everhopeful @oe1489 and @ZmaGal.

Does anyone know if feeling a bit jittery is a side effect?

Yes I’ve had a flu shot because it’s the most I can do about the pandemic along with the other things I’m doing.

Well done @Wave :+1: :+1: It’s so important to get the flu shot, especially this year.

They reported in the news that they had a confirmed case of someone who has tested positive for both covid and the flu.

Does flu makes covid worse?

According to the article—

—"It’s also not yet clear if patients with co-infection of the flu and Covid-19 will fare worse, Bouton said. “However, there are a few preliminary studies suggesting that this may in fact be the case.”—

I heard somewhere that the flu vaccine can help soften the blow of COVID infection.
I don’t know how accurate this is.

Yup got the shot, hurt alittle going in.

Hi brother is it? or sister? Whats making you nervous about the flu shot?

It’s brother.
I held on to some irrational fears surrounding the flu shot.

Actually many of my fears were common, so not so irrational.

I’m a nurse. It is expected and mandated that I get vaccinated if I’m going to do my job. Good for you for getting one. You should feel good about it. :wink:
