“I had to fly across the country for my vaccine, and, wow, are my arms sore”

“I just flew in and boy, are my arms tired!” is a very old joke (1940s). The arms are tired from flapping so much (like a bird’s wings).

A variation of the joke was posted on Reddit-- Oneliners on April 16, 2021:

“I had to fly across the country for my vaccine, and, wow, are my arms sore.”

The arms are sore not only from the flapping, but from the vaccination. “I had to fly to London for my vaccine, and, wow, are my arms sore” was posted on Twitter by THS | OtmShank later on April 16, 2021.

I don’t get it, could you please explain

his arms are sore because he was flying (by flapping his arms)

It’s a play off an old joke.
You’re arm gets sore after getting the vaccine. But the implication here is that I may have flown by flapping my arms, and that’s why they’re sore instead.
