Covid booster and other arm flu booster yesterday. No reaction. I thought getting both would lay me out but nada.

We have been discussing what to do about that and thought we would spread them out two weeks. Glad to hear you had no troubles.

I got the bivalent booster two days ago.
I had aches and feeling a bit feverish overnight after the dose. Resolved fully by the end of the next day.

My mother (age 76) also got the booster at the same time and said she experienced almost no after effects, but she did take a Tylenol the evening after the dose whereas I opted to take no fever reducers or pain relievers.

I chose to delay a few weeks before getting my flu shot. The nurse giving the bivalent covid booster also recommended to do the vaccinations on different days so that it would be easier for clinicians to differentiate the after effects of the different injections.

I did the same on Saturday. My COVID arm was moderately sore for a couple of days.

I've felt fatigued for a couple of days, and a bit headachy-nothing horrible, but a PITA.

I got mine on Monday with no effects. I'll go back for my shingles and flu in a couple of weeks. The pharmacist remembered me and even remembered where I worked, pretty impressive since the only time I have seen her is for my covid shots.

I got my Covid vaccine yesterday and now my teeth hurt. Although that could be because I got my braces adjusted by my orthodontist an hour before my vaccination but for now I’m sticking with the cause being my Covid booster.

I both felt the stick and the push, and mentioned it.

The guy said 'Sorry, I may have pushed a little'.

He also inquired if I might want to get a flu shot, but I did that earlier.

Otherwise, there's no reaction so far.

I've never had one except a slightly stiff arm, but I work through it to minimize it and any ache.

And there was no aprés shot wait this time.

Good going on the shots.

Is this the new flu vaccine for 2022-2023? I didn't even know it was out.

Some local places here offer a discount on groceries or products you buy there when you get a booster. That's why I'd wait for a flu shot!
Greedy?

I did the same on Sunday, no side effects to speak of. Safeway gave me 2, 10% off, grocery discount coupons.
