I resisted getting the flu shot till around 2010. I was willing to roll-the-dice and take my chances. But, as I approached 60 I realized that I better pay heed to what the medical profession was advocating especially since I am very susceptible to infections.
So, far so good.
It does not get any easier or more convenient. And now they tout and honor a ZERO co-pay. So, no cost other than what they bill your insurance.
Very efficient. Very professional. Quite fast. Very little wait time. Today, they were rather buy and it took just over 30-minutes. Still easier than driving to an hospital.
Yes, I know that they don’t even KNOW what this winter’s flu virus is going to be!
Same story as last year and the year before.
The vaccine, quite literally, is a shot in the dark. Best guess, hope for the best, fingers crossed.
But in my old age and with very little blood cells, red or white, I can’t take any chances. This year for the first time I got the 65+ flu vaccine in my left arm, and for the first time ever, a pneumonia shot — the latter in the right arm. That way ‘they’ know which is which; ‘flu’ with an ‘l’ in it in the ‘l’eft arm. Clever.
