Well, it's that time of year again! The CDC and FDA both approved the new COVID-19 vaccine last week, and I started looking for shots immediately. I managed to find a booking for today at a local Walgreens, and was perhaps a little worried when the fact-sheet they sent me was for the 2022 BA.4/BA.5 bivalent shot. Thankfully, after a bit over an hour waiting in line, I successfully got the latest XBB.1.5 Pfizer vaccine.
So far (as usual) no side effects except fatigue.
I know that a lot of folks are recommending waiting until a bit later in the year, but pretty much everyone I know with school-aged children has COVID right now, so it doesn't hurt to get in a little bit of extra protection. Stay safe out there.
