IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR...AGAIN

Flu season is fast approaching and you need a flu shot! I use to really enjoy the changing seasons, fall met cozy evenings, football, sweaters, jackets, and jeans; but now it is a warning that cold and flu season are just around the corner. Once again we will be requiring everyone who comes to our home after November 1st to of had a flu shot for at least two weeks (Oct. 17th). You might notice my new "Shot for Teagan" list on the right has already started. Experts are predicting a pretty bad flu season, especially with the new H1N1 (Swine Flu)strain. We will not be requiring the H1N1 vaccine, as we have heard it will be hard to get and I'm not so sure how much good it will do being the first year and all. I'm a little skeptical myself and as of right now don't think my family will be getting them. If there is one thing I've learned through all this it is: TRUST YOUR GUT! And right now my gut is saying to hold off. The regular old flu shots are out and available so go get one today! I know where to get them for $15, so just ask. Let me know when you get yours so I can add you to the list, thanks for your help in keeping our family well!

I love your reminders! Xander, Ashton and I got ours on Tuesday and Jason is going to get his tomorrow. I know we aren't ever at your house, but our people hang out with your people ;). I also like what you said about following your gut on decisions like the H1N1 vaccine. I have also decided not to get it for us, as I am afraid it will do more harm than good.
I hope you guys are all doing great!

Where can you get them for $15? I was planning to drag Hardy to Smith's Pharmacy next week, but they charge $25.

Matt got his this week. Also he is giving flu shots today at the Southern Womens Show so if anyone is out here in the south go get one from Matt. I was going to get mine from him today but didn't get up in time to go. I will get one before I come out though.

Ok just kidding I made it to the show and Matt just gave me my shot and you know I said, "I do it for you Teagie Weegie!"

Awesome idea! You can add Kyle, Grant, and I to your list even though we will likely not even see you guys this season at all! We got our shots today. I am intrigued by this idea... we are really working to keep everyone around us healthy too. Did this work well for you last year? Did you have anyone that was really upset about the stipulations? If you don't mind, I might have to borrow your idea and see that our family and friends do the same thing!
