Re: Flu shot?

I thought about getting it. My wife works in the school system and i was worried about her getting sick with Swine Flu. I guess i waited too long, as she did get sick about 2 weeks ago and my sister is sick right now with it.

Everybody is basically fine, though...

Re: Flu shot?

first, are you actually complaining about getting something for free?

No my wife walked out. I'm complaining that I cannot go to my doctor and pay for the shot but the free places seem to have plenty. Our Doc's cannot get the shot.

Re: Flu shot?

Wanna know something that might be humorous to some??

The new Wal-Mart out here on Rt. 50 was giving away flu vaccines. Going there yesterday for some car stuff, i saw a sign that said they were not giving vaccines due to a staff flu outbreak....thinking back i should have snapped a few pics with my phone....

Well last time I checked I pay taxes and I'm sure that the others that go to my doctor pay taxes also. You don't think the people giving the FREE shot don't get paid? I'm sure some donate time and do it free but I'm guessing most get paid. My doctor is no different and should charge the $29.00 to administer the shot and should get equal treatment when they are passing it out.

Apparently this was a big scam!

Re: Flu shot?

If it was a scam she went through alot of trouble going to doctors and all. We did get my 3 yr old the shot but me and the wife decided not to and neither of us caught the flu.
