After four seasonal flu vaccines, 16 4-year vaccinations and eight H1N1 vaccines, we are finally done with shots... for now. Our second dose of the H1N1 vaccine was this morning and we actually made it through the appointment with minimal tears. It helped that I brought along Tootsie Pops. How can you spend much time crying when you have a gigantic lollipop waiting for you?
Since the restrictions for the H1N1 vaccine have been lifted, Hubby and I lucked out and managed to get vaccinated today at the pediatrician as well. About a month ago we went to one of the free clinics offered by our county. Thanks to bad Google Maps directions, we spent an hour driving around looking for the site. When we finally found it, we bailed. The location (an elementary school), was in a poorly lit neighborhood (it was dinner time and dark). We would have had to park four or five blocks away and navigate a high-traffic area with our daughters. Not ideal. I was more than happy to pay $15 a piece today for Hubby and me to be vaccinated.
Now the girls just want to know one thing: "Do we have to have a shot tomorrow, too?"
