My company plans on giving out free flu shots next week, but (just like last year), I won't be here. While out for a walk this afternoon, I saw that Rite-Aid, like many places, was offering walk-up flu shots, and I decided to get my arm poked and get it over with. There was a bit of paperwork, but I was pleased that they would take my insurance and that my insurance has no co-payment on flu shots, so I was not out of pocket at all. The pharmacist injected the shot, taped me up, and I was on my way. I just wish I'd done it sooner, so as to give it more time to take hold before heading off to Chicago.
