Influenza vaccine

Have you had your influenza (flu) vaccine shot? I just had mine yesterday. And, it was provided by our company. Actually, I wouldn't get one if it weren't for free. And, I was the one tasked to look for the provider and administrator. We'd checked with several hospitals and doctors; but, the vaccines are out of stocks and the fresh supplies would be arriving by next month. Fortunately, I found one, through the internet, that has stocks of 50 shots. I immediately reserved them. And, the administration was done in our office.

The flue vaccine is not a protection for the scary AH1N1 (swine flu) but for the common flu (or trangkaso) only.
