OUCH! It's Flu Shot Time Again

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

Flu Season is quickly approaching and that means many of us are getting our flu shots.  I have had the flu and believe me, the shot is much better than a week in bed with the flu.

 

This year, they are offering a four component flu shot.  That means it should protect against 4 different strains of the flu.

 

I got my shot in my right arm yesterday afternoon.  They say that you should get the shot in your prominent arm because you use it more and it is less likely to hurt.  OK it still hurts and the Daffy Duck bandaid did nothing to sooth the pain, but this too shall pass.

 

You never know who you will come in contact with along your travels.  The person behind you in line at the grocery store could be carrying the flu virus, so don't hesitate, get vaccinated today.

Hi Belinda, I got the flu shot twice and both times, I was more sick than usual. Haven't had one for a while.

Thanks Belinda - I will get one today as I need to pick stuff up at that place. We were both really sick with the flu about 15 years ago and I will never got without a shot again. Never been sick with it since getting a shot. I'm also really careful in flu season to wash my hands more often.

Hi Belinda - I got mine last week, and I wouldn't think of skipping it. I still remember the flu I had 10 years ago - don't want to do that ever again.

I got my flu shot last Wednesday.  I'm glad it's over.  I must say however, that our local Kaiser makes it so easy.  They have a conference room set up.  You walk in and hand them your Kaiser card and driver's license, and they poke you in the arm.  I was in and out of there in less than 5 minutes.

I will be getting mine soon. The last flu shot only hurt for a day and then I forgot about it.

Ugh...I hate getting a flu shot. I guess it is time to get going on it. My arm always hurts for 3 days!

Hi Belinda -- I'm not sure the last time I had a flu shot ---- I guess I can count on no visits from you until after the season is over.

I see I am in good company with Michael Jacobs .  It's been years since I've had a flu vaccination.  My immune system is built up pretty good touching all those door knobs.
