County health departments - like mine are being flooded with vaccine.

Has everyone been able to get their vaccine??? (H1N1) I have NOT.
My doctor - still - does not have it -but hopes to, in January!! A very
few of the drug stores have some; lines are long, but I cannot stand in
line and wait - for physical reasons, which is a long story. I have a
good friend, out West, and there, they have had the vaccine since about
three weeks - already. I don't understand the erratic distribution - but
am pretty worried since I have not had mine yet. I did get my original
flushot. = I also heard on T.V. this morning (12/17) that in some
places in the country, the swine flu seems to be ebbing somewhat, but
that people ought to remain alert, since there is no guarantee that,
perhaps both, the swine flu, as well as the regular flu, may return -
My fingers are sore from having kept them crossed!!!
Olly I haven't got it yet either. My doctor doesn't have it. I
suggest you call your local health department and ask them exactly WHO
has the vaccine locally and WHERE it is being given. You may have to
get someone to give you a ride. Another possibility is that the
facility where you live may have some knowledge of where a clinic is
being held, or whether anyone is able to come THERE to give the shots to
the people who want them.
The shots are free to county residents.
But people who rarely go out among others are at a very low risk.
Guess some of us just have to have something to wring hands about.
I am not going to bother to hunt for it. If it becomes convenient I will
get it. Otherwise not.
I got the shot this morning. I tried to do a triple, get checked
for glaucoma or other eye problems, get the H1N1 shot, and
find out if Kaiser knows yet that I'll be going onto their senior
plan when I turn 65 in a couple of months. The first two went
swimmingly, and I have no eye problems, but Kaiser still hasn't
heard, although the person I talked to said not to worry,
because if the City has set it up all will be done in time. (I will
check again later)
The doctor put some stuff in my eyes that dilated them. As I
was leaving, he gave me a pair of paper-rimmed dark glasses.
Good thing - as soon as I hit the daylight, it was obvious I
shouldn't be looking at so much brightness with my dilated
eyes. With the dark glasses though, it was fine.
As I was leaving Kaiser, an old guy approaching on a cane
fell down on the street. I and another guy about my age got
him up, and a nurse who had seen it happen went inside and
brought him out a wheelchair. He fell well, not banging his
head, so I think it's going to be OK. If I get to the point where
I'm having problems like that though, as you wrote elsewhere,
it might be time to take myself out. We'll see if I still feel the
same way about that if and when I do get there.
