[Comments] (4) : I'm getting *sniffle* my flu shot *cough* on Wed *yawn*. The question *sneeze* is: will it be *sniffle* too late?

Bed, then up at *empties kleenex box* 7 to continue studying.

Haha, I feel (mostly) better. Perhaps I gave you my cold. (Perhaps not.)

Rachel - you should consider getting the nasal spray instead of the shot, to do your bit for saving the shot for the elderly and little kids.

"Another alternative is the FluMist, the more expensive inhaled version of the vaccine. Its maker, MedImmune Vaccines, made between 4 million and 5 million doses this year. Spokeswoman Jamie Lacey said that as of Nov. 18, the company had sold 400,000 doses, and "there is still a wide supply available."

The nasal spray is recommended only for healthy people ages 5-49, and disease doctors are urging it as an option to save the traditional vaccine for more at-risk people.

"If you're healthy, you have two options: Please take the option that the other folks can't have," said Dr. William Schaffner of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases."

It's a good thought, but I don't think its part of the free flu shot program at the health center. I'll ask, tho.
