Flu shot πŸ’‰

Received: 11/12/21 (Taking note helps me keep a record πŸ˜‰)

Note:Attained πŸ‘‡ information from the CDC, had to copy & paste information from the website to ensure there’re are no typos!

Got mines from a community pharmacy, made an appointment day of πŸ‘πŸ½

Woke up feeling anxious about this πŸ˜‚πŸ˜… because I felt this was something to get sooner. πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ But luckily I’ve just been home 🏑 Apparently people get it as soon as August πŸ€”

Always a little nervous with shots (on blood thinners, which can lead to prolongued and excessive bleeding). But 🀞🏼 my dosage is small 😁 Luckily, I saw no bleeding 🩸

The key πŸ”‘ aspect of the flu shot is that a small-deactivated virus is injected into you (what all vaccines are) meant to get your immune response making antibodies that fight off germs (or pathogens)
