One of the perks of working in a hospital is that the facility tends to like to keep their employees healthy. Go figure. Part of that includes vaccines free of charge. Yes, I said that lovely four letter word. I jump on the bandwagon for the flu shots every year. I figure I could get sick from the shot or the flu and I’ll take my chances with the shot.
I hear you over there saying “silly, it’s not flu shot time.” To which I say “DUH”. I didn’t get a flu shot today. I got a good old-fashioned tetanus booster. Which really is called Tdap now and covers not just tetanus but also diphtheria and pertussis (whooping-cough).
You do know you’re supposed to get a booster shot every ten years, right? So did I. When was my last shot? I was about 12. Ok, stop doing the math. I know I’m over a little. Just remember it doesn’t hurt. Not a lie. Really doesn’t hurt. But then I’ve got one too many tattoos for most people to believe me when I say a needle doesn’t hurt.
