I got my flu shot today. MediNurse made a scheduled visit to our company and gave all of our employees the vaccine. It was convenient, quick and, for the most part painless (as painless as any shot can be).
I’d love to sugar coat this for you and tell you how wonderful it was to get the flu shot, but really I hate getting the flu shot. MediNurse was good. Karen, our nurse,
was very pleasant. She was on time, had all of her supplies ready and made the
process seamless. We signed paperwork in advance and she had printouts of flu
shot FAQs available if we wanted to read them.
However, no one likes needles and no one enjoys getting shots. My arm still aches a little and it will probably ache for the rest of the day.
Getting a flu shot is worth it, though. One year I skipped the shot and that was a big mistake. I had the full-blown flu and I’ll never skip the vaccine again. I was
in college and it was during finals week. I had to study hopped-up on cold
medicine. I walked to my finals in the snow—body aching, fever, chills, the
works. I was miserable.
Though my arm is uncomfortable for a time, I’ll continue to get a flu shot every year. Five minutes of inconvenience outweighs the misery I would experience if I got the flu. Karen and MediNurse have made scheduled visits all over town, going to businesses, churches, nursing homes and schools giving people flu shots. If you haven’t gotten yours yet I highly recommend MediNurse. Ask for Jill—tell her
you got a recommendation from Patch. www.medinurse.com.
