Yesterday our school provided flu shots in the nurse's office. So I got a flu shot, because it was so convenient. I don't think I've ever had one. I also haven't had the flu in over 5 years.
I was also starting to come down with a cold -- you know, the usual sore throat and runny nose.
Now, not only do I have the cold and cough, I also have symptoms of a reaction to the flu shot:
From the CDC website. "The viruses in the flu shot are killed (inactivated), so you cannot get the flu from a flu shot. Some minor side effects that could occur are: Soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given, fever (low grade), aches." Yep, got all 3.
I'm sending Ernest to pick up take-out for dinner.
