I'm scared to death of needles. I warn them of this. I did not look at what they did lol though I assume a bit of a pinch based on how it felt. Most of the time I think they do the same. For me neither shot hurt with the needle going in. The second one - given by the exact same staff as the first time did sting with the liquid going in more. Not the needle itself though.Quick question about how the person giving the shot did it...
I hate shots and usually I just get stabbed with them.
Sometimes though including the guy that gave me the Moderna shot yesterday they pinch and hold a bit of my upper arm and then give the shot while holding the area which to me makes so much more sense because the area is more stable and honestly seems to hurt less.
After getting these shots, I had my flu shot 2 weeks later. Person did not understand "don't tell me when it's going in" and definitely did sting more lol
