Because who doesn’t want a free band-aid? Right?

I gave him a quick heads-up when he had a moment’s break in his work day with, “I’m off to go get my flu shot.”

He did a double take. “A flu shot,” he answered, with recognition dawning in his voice in slow motion: like, Oh yeah. That type. I remember those. (We’d discussed covid boosters at length but we can’t do anything about them yet.)

To be fair, I’d interrupted his train of thought.

I wonder: how on earth did they decide what strains would be running rampant this winter, traveling east to west as they track them, when everybody stayed inside and most people in the world wore masks like they should and just about nobody was getting the flu?

Just covid. So much covid here.

Okay, well, whatever, I did it, which means he’ll get around to it soon, too. September 9 one year I was sent to the ER with serious flu complications and I’m never waiting that long again.

Wow … that’s early. I usually get mine around my birthday (a month from now). Glad to know you will be safe.

I think they determine which strains by north/south, too. But mostly they guess.

Yes, it’s smart to get it when you can! Last year, Publix had them here in August, but I haven’t seen them mention it yet. I’ll definitely get mine as soon as I can.
