The Prik

Yep. I promised to keep this blog clean, but today it was the prick.

Griep Prik😩

In English that is the flu shot.

We walked over to our Dutch doctors clinic this afternoon for our yearly flu pricks. Most of the "patients" had pink pieces of paper which were invitations to come by from 4-6:30 pm. When it was our turn, we simply gave our names, birthdates, and our doctor's name. The assistant made the notations, handed us our syringes, and we joined the short waiting lines.

No tables, no chairs. Just push up your sleeve, "here we go," and slap on a small bandaid.

Getting my windbreaker back on was the biggest effort I made. Now to see if this "prickly" feeling in my left arm does its job. We haven't had the flu in a couple of years, and I hope that good luck continues.

It should be that easy for everyone to get a flu shot, but so many people won't get one because they think it gives them the flu.
