Each and every time for me!  Each and every time.  I keep saying I will bring my own and I never, ever, remember!   :insane:

Ugh!  Iím going to have to go back to the pharmacy and find out what kind of bandaids they use.

The night we got the shot my arm was itchy. I thought it was probably the cotton ball or bandaid was wrinkled or something. Removed it ASAP.

Yesterday it was a bit itchy on and off. Didnít really think much of it. But today it was REALLY itchy and I scratched which hurt. Hurt because of the bruise which I had before the shot. The bruise is well below the shot and well below the bandaid, but the pain made me actually look.

It was red and looked a bit swollen. When I looked in a mirror, the red swollen part is the exact shape of the bandaid. The area where the shot is, is fine.

Next year, I think Iíll bring my own bandaid.

DH and I just got our shots at the pharmacy.

Dh was talking about the pneumonia vaccine. He has to pay at pharmacy, but due to his health, getsnit free at doctorís. He thinks heís not due for a few years.

We are waiting at the walk in clinic... I think my husband might have the flu, despite being vaccinated earlier this month.   :tongue:
Day 5 of violent coughing, Tylenol, sleeping (and not being able to sleep), and fever on and off.  Three days off from work.  He's miserable.  *sigh*
Maybe it is something else, like pneumonia or bronchitis or something... thus the clinic visit.

Regardless, make sure you're vaccinated!!  Get the pneumonia vaccine, too, if you're due for one.  (I think it's every 5 years?)

Update: it's a really bad case of strep. 
Update 2: nope, strep test came back negative, it's some combination of a flu and head cold or something.  I cannot take his whining any longer!

When DD and I got our flu shots a few weeks ago (as early as they were available locally), I thought of you mumaluke.

 :heart:  Thank you for surely saving lives in your quest.

My husband is working from home today, so I told him we should go together today to get our shots. My daughter is on campus all day, but has a long break. I told her if she can get her flu shot at the health center, she could do that and be done with it. I need to text my son, who is living in CA.

Mumaluke, we didn't used to get flu shots. I'm not anti-vax, but thought an annual flu shot wasn't really necessary.  My daughter, who is 20, asked last night at dinner when and why we started getting them. I said it was when someone's son died and they posted here. That's when we started. I told them you come back and post every year to remind us to get our shots.  :heart:

Hi!   :bye:  So glad you think of us and pop in!

So nice to hear from you!  We both got ours two weeks ago and I only had a typical/minor reaction this year. Hurray!

Wow, 9 years.  It doesn't seem that long.  I'll get mine soon, and let DS know he needs to get his as well.

So happy to see you Mumaluke. I think of you folks often - and canít believe how much time has passed either.

I got mine at work yesterday, and promptly sent a nag reminder text to my kids.

Thank you for your advocacy work. ❤️
