It’s that time of year again. Time to get your flu shots. No excuses. They are free.

You can go to Longs and get a 20% off coupon with your shot, or you can go to Walgreens and up until Oct 13, if you get your flu shot there, they will vaccinate a child in a third world country for free. (We’re talking several million children.) 

I am planning to do that today. The pharmacy is open 24 hours, so just do it.

I can guarantee you it doesn’t hurt and it is sure a lot more fun than getting the flu. By the way, there is now a stronger dose shot for seniors over 65. And if you go to Walgreens, you get a nifty red bandage.
