Luckily, needles don't bother me, and I received my favorite shot of the year last week-- my annual flu shot.
I called my doctor about a month ago, inquiring about this year's shot. They took my number, and said they'd call when the shots would be given out. I thought they'd forgotten about me, and I was ready to go to one of the drug store chains for the shot. Last Wednesday afternoon, my call came, and I was in the doctor's office less than an hour later. Boom! Done! I was out in less than five minutes.
It doesn't hurt, and even if the shot was painful, it's still better than the flu.
For the life of me, I can't understand why some people are anti-flu shot. They're easily available and inexpensive. Insurance usually picks up the tab. Even if it didn't, shelling out $20 or $30 is preferable to spending three days in the bathroom.
Do yourself a favor, and do your family a favor. Get the shot.
