I Got My 2020 Flu Shot Today — At ‘Goodwin Community Health’ In Somersworth.

by Anura Guruge


I typically like to wait till closer to Thanksgiving. But, last year I had it on the 8th. This year the 9th. In both instances only because I happened to be at — or close — to my “doctor’s”.

Today, I had to have a mini-physical ahead of my cataract surgery on November 25. 2020. They asked me whether I had the shot — & if not, if I wanted it. It is always easier & quicker to get it at your doctor’s. They have the paperwork & they worry less about ‘interactions’ since they ‘know’ your ‘record’.

So, I had it done. It really was painless. Did NOT feel it. Noticed a slight discomfort for a few minutes many hours later. But, even that is gone.

I Got My ‘Old Man’, Over 65, ‘Fluzone High-Dose’ Flu Shot Today — At ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock’ In Concord.

Click to ENLARGE and skim through here. Google ‘Fluzone High-Dose’. This was from the U.S. CDC — who we hope know what they are talking about.

I used to be ultra-skeptical about flu shots — BUT that was when I was younger and fitter.

I nearly died, this time that year, in 2010! See below. WOW — 9-years ago, and I was at least 35 lbs heavier!

I started getting the flu shot the next winter.

I am still new to the old-man flu shot. This was but my 2nd year. I really don’t know. I can’t say I sail through each winter.

But, the deed is DONE. No one but no one can now complain and nag. I got my flu shot and I got the right old-man one.

Fingers crossed. YIKES.

2010 vs 2019.

My Preference To Wait Till Thanksgiving For My Flu Shot VINDICATED.

I traditionally get my Flu shot in ‘late’ November.


I have only been getting the flu shot for about the last 6-years — and that was after I nearly died.

From the start I preferred to get my flu shot later than sooner. I know that pharmacies and drug stores start offering it in August, but that never made any sense to I. Nobody has any idea what the flu strain is going to be that early.

Yes, yes, yes, I know that THEY have CLAIMED that they don’t change or refine the vaccine as the year progress.

Well, here is PROOF that they do! I always suspected that the drug companies did. If they didn’t, they would not be human. Human impulse to improve something if you can.

Well, I am vindicated. SMILE.

I get nagged starting in September about the flu shot, though, thanks to this blog, I have written proof that I get my flu shot in November.

Now I am vindicated. SMILE. Did I already say that?
