Band Aid on Covid Vaccine?

OK, after I got the covid vaccine, the nurse didn’t apply the band aid on the right spot. I didn’t notice it until a family member pointed out that there was a spot of blood on my shirt sleeve .-. So turns out I left the area I got injected uncovered for almost 3 hours. Should I be worried?
Thanks :)

I’d only be worried about the shirt. And thank you and congratulations on getting the vaccine.

Hydrogen-Peroxide with help the stain on the shirt, I wore a red T-shirt both times. ;>)

FWIW I get allergy shots every 4–6 weeks or so and I always refuse the band aids. I forget about them and they come off in the shower.

@Caravanfan they didn’t even offer me one with my vaccination or my annual flu shots or my allergy shots. A good smooth jab won’t bleed. Anyway it’s not as much fun as it used to be when you got a Snoopy band-aid or one with pirates on it or stars. How are plain band-aids going to get you better faster?

Maybe. If it didn’t bleed.

Slight localized bleeding like you experienced is actually a good sign.

@kritiper If they offered Batman bandaids at my allergist I’d totally wear them.

@Caravanfan, did you mean that for me?

I would wear a snoopy bandaid.

Caravanfan's avatar

@kneesox Yep. Sorry. They both pulled up with I did the @k
