Flu shots in the grocery store..flu shots in Wally World..flu shots in the corner drug store..walk in anytime. Insurance covers most shots and they do the paper work for you.
Far Guy gets a flu shot E.V.E.R.Y. year. He was upset that he missed the one at his favorite grocery store..where you have to stand in line for two hours. ( But they have free cookies and juice.) On Friday when we were in town he was insistent that he get his shot. It must be the Military part of him..he musta missed being shot full of all kinds of strange serums. You should read his shot record..then again maybe not.
I was not convinced. I had a flu shot two years ago that irritated the bursa in my shoulder and I had a really hard recovery that included a cortisone injection and physical therapy for six weeks. At least the flu goes away in a couple of days. Since then if they want to give me a shot..they can find a nice fatty spot on my butt. I had my pneumonia shot and my tetanus shot there with no adverse reactions.
The Nurse had never given a flu shot in the butt before..she thought it was a strange request. Come on sweetie..seen one seen em all..just pick a spot. I figured if she didn’t want to give it to me..I would go without.
I have an area about the size of a grapefruit that is hard as a rock in my left butt cheek. I have a scratchy throat..I am achy all over..I am cranky..I think I might have the flu. I think I got the flu from the flu shot. They say that is impossible..
I got the flu shot because I remember when I was little and had the Asian Flu and was in the hospital and the Nuns washed me in cool water and took my temperature rectally. I also remember in January of 1976 when we all got the flu..Far Guy, me and Trica..the only one that didn’t have the flu was Jennifer and she was just four months old. My Mother had to risk her health to come take care of us all.
Last winter I did not get a flu shot and I did not have the flu. Far Guy had the flu shot and he had the flu at least three times. I think I should cook up some soup and put it in the freezer and stock up on jello and seven up…maybe popsicles too for the scratchy throat:)
