Ouch.

Seasonal flu vaccine down, H1N1 vaccine not yet located.

My favorite part - the look on the nurse's face when I told him that some people on the internet are calling H1N1 "hamthrax." I think I made his day. Not hard, considering his day consists of being locked in a supply closet with a bunch of vaccine and potentially contagious people, but I still feel like my good deed for the day is complete.

We're the opposite... Buddy was able to get the H1N1 vaccine (but not the rest of us, since we're not high risk), but we can't get the seasonal flu vaccine until December.

We were all supposed to be able to get the H1N1 starting this week, but there's a shortage now, so they're still only poking high priority people.

We've all gotten the regular flu vaccine in October, but only the 2 year old has gotten her first poke of the H1N1.

But we just got word that the local non-chain pharmacy has H1N1 for the 7 and 10 year old.

Tonight is poking night!

Apparently, the we, the geezers, can continue to suffer.
