Much Ado About Nothing? [Dec. 15th, 2009|08:29 pm]
Wizard of Changes -- ©cdozo 2004 to 2015

I got the H1N1 flu shot this evening and G got the H1N1 nasal vaccine. The shot was the most painless shot I've ever gotten. It was weird. I literally didn't feel a thing.

I don't expect the H1N1 flu to become a major pandemic. I also don't expect to have any major side effects from the vaccine. It was free, G wanted to get the nasal vaccine, and I figured, "why not." So we got it.

I'll post about it here if I have any exciting vaccine-related ailments (if I'm able to post at all). Then you can all tell your friends, "I know someone who got the vaccine and a few days later she..."

We got them through an Austin/Travis health department clinic. The article I read said an appointment was required, but they were taking walk-ins when we got there. We were a half an hour late for our appointment and they weren't upset.

I called 972-5520 to make the appointment

There's one more clinic. It runs from 1 to 6 p.m. on Dec. 17 at the Burger Center in south Austin.

You did see that video of the woman who got the vaccine and then got some neuro thing where she could only walk normally if she was going backwards, right?
