Got mine yesterday at my grocery store’s pharmacy.

The patient after me was a 6 year old kid who loudly proclaimed his dread. He watched me get it, I gave him a thumbs up and said “I didn’t feel a thing.” I don’t know if that made him feel better or not. I like to think it did.

Then I bought a toaster.

What kind of toaster?

A Cuisinart 2-Slice Compact Plastic Toaster. It’s wonderful, especially compared to what I had.

Cool. I bought a toaster recently, a German WMF single slice toaster. Waiting for my electrician to wire a 240v outlet for me. (I'm in USA)

Just googled yours; assuming it’s the same one, it looks really cool.

I could barely fit a slice of bread in my old one. It cost me $7, so maybe that’s why. 🤨

Got mine at the doctor's office because I was there anyway.
Apparently they're all quadrivalent this year.  Not sure who made my dose:



I always tell the injector "oh, you're good at that".
I think it made me very sleepy the next day, but no sick feeling.

I got put on the Shingrix waiting list - no idea how long that'll be.  My buddy just got his second shot (and flu shot at the same time) and it did make him feel crappy for a couple days.

Amend and resubmit.

I make my own out of mercury and fluoride.
common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

I didn't have to buy a toaster. My house came furnished, including a toaster. And a coffee maker I never use. And other stuff.

Kids got their flu shots Monday. Just like last year, my son has had an outsized reaction to the shot, with a 4” raised, red area at the injection site that’s warm to the touch.  Both years he also complained of chills and headache and had a low-grade fever. Last night he very unusually went to bed early and slept for over 12 hours.

It is of course possible that both years he had an unrelated coincidental illness, and his symptoms are significantly milder than those of the flu and are likely to be of shorter duration; but I think it’s worth mentioning to his doctor.

Worth mentioning I agree.
