"Every year in the United States, on average:

  • 5% to 20% of the population gets the flu;
  • more than 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu complications, and;
  • about 36,000 people die from flu."

I've already had my flu shot, in fact, I got the first batch in from my doctors office. The PA there has a tendancy of "tackling" me into one. I'm glad I get them though, that's the last thing I need! NOW if only they could find a vaccine for the common cold :(

Hi Sherry! tongue
 
Yes, hopefully, I'll be getting mine next week when I see my PCP!!  I just added the 'hopefully'...in case he hasn't gotten them in yet?!
 
Re the common cold vaccine - WoW, that really would be wonderful, wouldn't it?! :)
 
Sherry, keep in touch!!  Big Hugs, Teri tongue
 
PS  When they "tackled" you for the injection, I hope that didn't hurt too much!! ROFL

I saw my pcp yesterday.  His office has no flu shots and doesn't know when they'll get them.  Said if you can get it somewhere else, do so.  Are they rationing flu shots where y'all are?  They are here in NC.

Hiya, Lil!! smurf
 
I overheard them today talking when I had to go back and get my scripts that they've been ordered and they don't know what the hold up is either! sad
 
Hope it's soon - for you, too!
