Vaccine-Nation

I made an appointment today to get my flu shot. According to the CDC, there is plenty of flu vaccine this year. Viruses covered include:
A/Brisbane/59/2007(H1N1)-like virus
A/Brisbane/10/2007 (H3N2)-like virus
B/Florida/4/2006-like virus.
After my shot, I plan to talk serious trash to any of those bugs I happen to see hanging around.

You set an appointment to get your shot?

Where to you go?

They won't grant appointments for that where I go because they don't charge me for that.

Covered by insurance.

Half the time I have to go somewhere other than my provider because they're all out by the time I get to them - which means I end up paying.

But when I ask for an appointment they say, it's first come first serve, and they won't hold any back.

If you're not on Medicare you can get them at Walgreens for $25. Just call to check the times or make an appointment.
