Flu vaccine for 2016-2017 available
Just a heads up for those who wish to receive flu shots.
(I know there are some people who do not desire these vaccines.)

I received mine yesterday from my doc for the 2016-2017 season.
They seem to be available early this year.
The CDC made its prediction last May. We'll see if they got it right.
Sometimes they get it right; but genetic drift in the virus makes the vaccine less effective.

You can Google it. The CDC has information on this season's strains.

My goal for the next two months:

Get a Flu shot.
Get a Pneumonia Shot.
Get a Shingles shot.

And no, I don't like getting shots!

Wife and I just got our flu shot... Again..Thanks to Mongo

We've had all of the Pneu shots that we'll ever need in our life..

Rose.... We had our shingle shots about three years ago... Wife got the shingles last year.. When questioned.. Doc said that you can still get the shingles even if you have had the shot,(yep, we can verify that) it just won't be as severe. Believe me, you wouldn't want to have the shingles, full scale..

I just saw a new Flu Shot sign in front of my local pharmacy.

Yep, thanks for the information on shingles. I thought I had read where you can get it even after being vaccinated, but it would be a milder case. I have relatives that have had shingles, so I've seen what they went through. Sad

I can verify about the statement "you don't want to have shingles." I was going to have the shingles vaccine and then the pharmacist checked the inert ingredients and because of that, I could not receive the vaccine. Two weeks later, I got a full blown case of shingles and I would not wish that on my worst enemy. Three months later I got a milder case of shingles again. I've had it with shingles !!!
