Tonight I made an impromptu decision to get the flu vaccine while I was getting the refill of a medication at the pharmacy. When I asked about the flu vaccine, the pharmacist asked if I also wanted to get the updated Covid19 booster.
This is a new booster that was recently approved by the FDA and targets the Omnicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5. The CDC recommends the Pfizer-BioNTech updated booster for people 12 years old and older and the Moderna updated booster for people 18 years and older.
The arm where I got both shots, the updated booster and the flu vaccine, barely hurts now. The arm usually hurts more right after I get the vaccine. I hope that means it won’t hurt tomorrow either because I have to go to work. but I have all morning to rest it does bother me. If I take it easy in the morning, I think I’m going to be alright by the time I go to work, but the important thing is that I got the vaccines before it was too late.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
