How do you feel after getting a vaccine?

Before COVID, I got my yearly flu shot and felt mild symptoms.


Today I got flu & bivalent COVID booster and feel like I’ve been hit by a truck.

I usually bounce back pretty fast so I’m not worried.

I’m curious about what y’all have felt after vaccines and how long symptoms lasted.

Do you ever think it has to do with how immune suppressed we are at the time? Or if we are building antibodies to COVID vs not really building immunity?

    I felt a little rough for a day or two after my COVID shot. Flu shots are hit or miss. Sometimes I don’t even feel a difference and other times I’m super exhausted for a few days and it feels like I’m trying to swim through cement.

    Wait.. you don’t feel like you’re swimming through cement all the time? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Kidding.

    Vaccines are so strange. Also, my arms are so sore today.

    This last covid vaccine I got I had no side effects. All of my other covid vaccines I felt like I'd been hit by a truck for a few days.

    Why does everything feel so complicated and unreliable ๐Ÿ˜ฉ?
