I Got Shot

February 15, 2011 at 6:39 pm 22 comments

Yes, yes, I got shot in my arm, and I survived it. The doctor says this shot will prevent from the seasonal cough-cold and sneezing bouts which attack me every morning.

You thought vaccines are only meant for children? Ha! You need to take them too. They protect from several diseases like Hepatitis A, B, influenza, meningococcemia, pneumonia.

Specialists say vaccines are as important for an adult as they are for a child so consult a doctor and get an immunization chart made.

Consider this, one episode of simple fever due to seasonal change means,

  • Sit at home for a few days, what a waste of precious holiday
  • Take thrice a day dose of bitter pills
  • Visit the doctor at least twice and pay him a fee- those precious bucks
  • Eat boring khichadi and other such food

Vaccines turn out to be a cheaper way to boost immunity and safeguard oneself against those million can’t be seen with naked eye kitanus!

Oh and its almost negligible pain (unless you are like me who found a reason to skip the gym 😉 today!

    And I am not going to visit the doctor and am certainly not going to pay.

      Pats let me clear a misconception that you have
      brooding is injurious for health it doesn’t improve immunity, like you think 😉 and if I remember right, ( again) someone had a bad, really bad bout of viral last year… eh?

    Haha what a title.I have got shot too several times. Couldn’t agree more about the drawbacks. Sitting at home, eating boring food… add not being able to sing to that list. Yuck.
    Be well! 😀

    • 13. delhizen  |  February 16, 2011 at 11:04 am

        Hahaha no no don’t get your hopes high… I can hum without being pelted stones at and like the typical Bengali crusade, took singing lessons when young. That was many moons ago and I am no singer…but it’s fun humming nevertheless. 😀

    Anything to avoid those bitter pills

    • 16. delhizen  |  February 16, 2011 at 11:06 am

  • 17. Vineet  |  February 16, 2011 at 11:58 pm

    I for one never like going to two people in the world. Lawyers and doctors! They scare me to no end, because they essentially make a living from our pain. And they also never bargain! 😦

    • 18. delhizen  |  February 17, 2011 at 11:03 am

      super like for this comment, can’t stop laughing!

      I my case I got no reasons to feat either because I work with a super specialty hospital and love it! 2nd, I wanted to be lawyer, so have a soft corner for the profession

  • 19. Purbaray  |  February 17, 2011 at 8:46 am

    I don’t mind khichidi but yes, the husband did get the influenza shot.

    • 20. delhizen  |  February 17, 2011 at 11:04 am

      what about you and Baby Ray getting it?

      Only Maharastrian style sabudana khichadi for me

  • 21. Prit  |  December 5, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Hey ma’am. I forgot the vaccine that you asked me to take every year to boost my immunity, for the last time can you do a reminder service for me 🙂 please
