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.

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.
