Sore arm :(
So today I had two flu jabs - one for the usual seasonal flu, and one for swine flu. It seems that volunteers at Willow View count as 'front-line staff' (quite sensibly in my opinion, since we work closely with our service users) and so have priority for the vaccine.
What puzzles me is this: the woman who gave the injections asked me which hand I write with. Apparently you can't have both jabs in the same arm (what do they do with people with one or no arms? I should have asked), and apparently one of the injections is more likely to cause soreness than the other. So I had that one in my left arm - even though I can write quite happily with either hand, I do tend to use my right, simply because it's less likely to smudge the ink - and the other in my right.
So how is it that it's my right arm that's sore and a little inflamed, and my left one that's just as usual?
Apart from that, I'm feeling fine.
