‘Flu Jab ………….. ( Day 14 of NaBloPoMo )

Today I had my annual ‘flu jab.   Considerably later than previous years, due to being unaware of the 1st Clinic and away in St. Helens for the next one .The 3rd Clinic, for which I had finally obtained an appointment, was cancelled due to the medical Centre being unable to get an adequate supply of the vaccine. A laughable situation, but  …. hey ho !

So, today was the day !

I joined the long line of people in the “risk” group; fellow Senior Citizens; those with chronic medical conditions, heart disease, lung problems, etc. etc.  We were a merry band !

I had to wait for a few minutes because the person ahead of me  fainted and had to be revived. Whether it was due to the sight of the needle, or the   fact that  the Clinic was actually running to schedule, I don’t know.

Anyway, my ‘jab’ took approximately 1 second to administer and now I should be ‘flu-free for another year.

If only everything in life could be dealt  with so easily !
