Flu Shot

We got our Swine Flu shots today — except the youngest, who had gotten the live nasal vaccine in school a few days ago.

The rest of us got the shots through UM, which is vaccinating employees and their children. The Sunday operation was run with extreme efficiency; we were in and out of there in minutes. Unlike most of the other flu shots I've had, which were mostly painless, this one aches some when I pick stuff up. Dr. Anapol, the director of the campus health service, was on hand to fuss over the operation in person; he told me they've already vaccinated more than 5,000 people this season.

I had the regular seasonal shot several weeks ago, so I've done my bit for herd immunity.
