Since I moved from one province to another any vaccine I had from before 1994 was not listed. My mother swears I had all my vaccines however, my program at school can not just take our word for it they need proof. Luckily my blood work showed I was immune for Varciella etc. however they forgot to test for MMR.
I didnt want to risk my clinical since the deadline was coming up for all our paperwork (vaccines, immunities, criminal record checks etc) was coming up (due tomorrow). Without it we can be kicked out of our program. So I decided to just get a booster shot for MMR.
Now, I am a wimp for needles as is, but I swear this shot was the painful thing I ever experienced. The nurse gave me a heads up before hand and said '' this isnt me, Im not doing anything to cause this, but this is a shot that most say really stings''. Now I can see why my sons freaked so much when they got it as babies. I had to bite my tongue from letting out a little screech and my eyes were watering instantly.
Luckily no reaction to it yet (my friend got hers two weeks ago, her arm became very inflammed) its not even sore to move my arm like she said it would be (the arm that I got the flu shot in however I can barely move....go figure i got MMR on the side I dont write with to avoid discomfort).
So far my only side effect of either was fatigue (I was also on very little sleep the night before), I went to bed at 8 and woke up 15 minutes ago (booo!)
Honestly, no point to this post.... just wanted to sook about having a sore arm, and getting the worst needle I ever got!
