inFLUenza

Chuck and I went to get our seasonal flu shots today. Knowing there would likely be a crowd, we both brought along books to read. The line was indeed long. For about 45 minutes we shuffled along, noses in our books. Except of course when folks stopped to chat and to tell us we were smart to bring books with us!

: : If you live in Massachusetts you can locate a flu clinic by clicking on this link.

: : For other states, check out the Flu Clinic Locator over at the American Lung Association’s website. Because the ALA seems to be focusing on commercial based clinics at drugstores, you can also try Googling “public flu clinic” along with the name of your state.

: : If you’d like to learn more about seasonal influenza, as well as the H1N1 virus, check out flu.gov. It’s a very good, user-friendly website with a wealth of information.

I was sick with a cold the day they were sticking us at work this year. They give us the shot, free, in the hope we won't take time off work - fools :)

Hi DMM -
These vaccines were free as well - at least at point of injection. Not sure if it comes out of our state or federal coffers, so I assume either way we did pay via our taxes.

Since I work for the Government, I guess taxes paid for mine too!
