Get a Flu Shot ? What did you feel afterwards ?




Because both Mrs. cbelt3 and I were mighty sore and low grade ill for several days afterwards. Still better than getting full on influenza though.

Official information here from the hard working scientists at the CDC:

[www.cdc.gov]

Ed: NOT Thursday, thanks all... because I have no idea what day it is. Work from home, all days seem to be the same. Or long haul COVID. Or just dropping myself on my head. Or just a senior moment.old fogey smiley

I'd never had any reaction to a flu vaccine before this year.

Sore arm and felt bad for 2 days. But yes, much easier than influenza!

Zero, also.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

None whatsoever. The needle seemed longer this year and the process of injection slower.

cbelt3,

My horrifying answer is that neither my wife nor I had any adverse reaction to our flu shots this year. She usually has a sore arm for a couple of days. I rarely notice any adverse reaction.

I think most sore arms are from tensing up and anticipating the poke. Relax and think about taking a nap or something similar.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

I got the flu shot and Covid booster at the same time in the same arm so I can't isolate that flu shot effects vs the Covid shot effects. My arm hurt like hell for a couple of days and I felt fatigued for a day or so.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I voted "sore arm" but didn't have any after-affects at all.

Worst reaction to a flu shot in my experience. I consider this a good thing - says my body was calling 'all-hands onboard to repel the boarders!'

Flu shots usually knock me out on the second day after the shot.

Not this time.

Not even a fever.

Zero, so I impersonated MAVIC in the poll. And that's this year after my first seasonal flu shot, um, ever. Immune system strong like milk goat.

Basically nothing, just barely noticeable soreness at the injection site for perhaps 36 hours.

Sore arm. I always get a sore arm and this one was no different.

I might have been a little extra fatigued but it's impossible to say whether it was from the flu shot or just another random day that I felt a little extra fatigued.

Well, I read that wrong!

I thought the poll was asking about the booster shot.
That gave me na sore arm for a day or so.

The flu shot gave me 'nuttin honey'

Covid is the new flu. Soon, flu will be a minor annoyance like a cold is now and a cold will be downgraded to a simple sneeze.

Although I know you were joking (mostly at least), I have to say... Not really.

The flu still sucks and will never be a minor annoyance. Several years ago when I didn't get a flu shot I got the flu. I was quite a bit sicker than I was with Covid. It was a solid two weeks of being out of commission with a fever and feeling crappy and then another four weeks after that before my lungs felt normal again.

I was half joking and half serious. I think Covid is here to stay and will take the top spot on the podium, downgrading the others by one place. Just my 2 cents.

Haven’t gotten it yet, usually feel crappy for a couple of days with a sore arm.
Was supposed to go last week, but ended up getting booster shot. That was worse than the first two.
