With all the flu pandemonium going on, I went for the flu shot today. I work at a preschool and children are under my care twenty four hours of everyday. I got all dressed and ready for the event and loaded daughter in the car. Daughter was most concerned why I would choose a shot for myself. I explained how I wanted to be healthy and this would keep me from possibly getting the Flu. She was not buying it. We went here to get the shot. I thought this would be better then the time I had to stand in line at 4 am for one (while I was pregnant with daughter) at our church. I had to wait for an hour on the shot and was thankful there was a toy aisle to keep daughter occupied. I was the only person under the age of 75 getting the flu shot. I was also the only person not on Medicare and was the only person not talking about Obama's healthcare plan. I was the person who had a rowdy four year old who got some not so nice glares from the Piccadilly lunch crew. I was unsure who was giving the actual shot and was surprised it was the Pharmacist. My arm has been hot ever since and I am pretty sure he hit a nerve. Do pharmacist get trained in vaccinations? In the morning, I am taking the kids to get the flu mist. Husband wanted to know why on Saturday. He really asked. I replied, so you would have to suffer with me. Hoping this is the protection we will need for a healthy winter... now as far as the pig flu goes...I am avoiding bacon and pork as a precaution.
