under the in-flu-ence

2000-12-07 15:13:25+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Tuesday evening I got a splitting headache, yesterday I had a sore throat and same headache, constipated but liquid goes right through me. Others have reported similar symptoms. Normally I'm a fan of medicine only as a last resort. This year? Get a flu shot. This sucks solid objects of celestial scale through microscopic orifices.

I'll be the test subject. I got my flu shot Monday. I had to find a doctor who had the vaccine and then wait in line. Evidently it's in short supply this year. Everyone around me is succombing to the flu. We'll see what happens.

They misjudged which strains to manufacture for the vaccine. Usually the one-from-column-A-one-from-column-B method is pretty effective, just not this year.
