Yesterday, I went and got my shots for the flu and also a shot for pneumonia. The good looking nurse, said that the flu shot would not be a problem, unless I have an allergy problem. I have had many flu shots in the past so I knew everything would be ok with that shot. I got a shot in each arm, the pneumonia shot in the left arm and the flu shot in the right arm. Over night, I started to feel my left arm get sore, so every time I turned over I felt my arm, and I turn over a lot at night. This morning, I felt like someone had hit me in the arm, the good looking nurse said that my arm might feel sore with the pneumonia shot, well she was right. I checked my arm in the mirror to see if it may be red around the injection site, and no everything seemed ok. I guess it is just the little war that is going on in my arm, the little white blood cells, attaching the invasion from the injection. Well I know that in a week or two I will be safe from the latest flu’s and pneumonia viruses that are going around. 25 years ago I got every darn flu that was going around, I was sick 3 to 4 times a year and I tell you that was a real drain on me. I basically have been getting the flu shots since they have been available, and since then, I have not had the flu very often. There are many people out there that don’t believe in immunization, well that is up to them, but I sure believe in them. So if you believe in them go get your shots, you will be healthier for it.
