We Got our Flu Shot (Influenza Vaccine)
So one morning, we rushed to the nearby Mercury where they are having this offer and we're amazed at how many people lined up to get their as well. We only paid Php 495/each kids/adult while my mom paid P396 because she's a senior citizen already.
Some doctors are charging P800-1,000 per shot so we clearly got a good discount. It was in May last year when we had our flu shot and thankfully, no one got sick the whole year. This flu vaccine is a good protection for us from Influenza.
Side effects of flu vaccine:
~mild ache on the injected area for 1-2 days (bearable ache) - parang nangangalay lang
~swelling, soreness or redness of the area. Just give a hot compress on this.
~doctors say the there is really minimal side effects.
Flu is a respiratory viral infection that can affect our respiratory organ (lungs) that can be spread from one person to another. Symptoms can include high fever, body aches and respiratory problem.
Did you get your flu vaccine this year? If not, try to get one every year!

Indeed flu vaccine helps a lot to keep us healthy. Your niece looks so cute and normally afraid of injection. I can see my younger son in her. May you and your family be blessed with good health always :)ReplyDelete
Nowadays, we need more protection against these diseases and it's a perfect time for us to have a shot on flu vaccine as it can help prevent flu and other illness that might infect us. :)ReplyDelete
That’s a good preventive measure. It’s a good thing that Mercury Drug offers it on a very low price. I hope I can still avail of that vaccine anytime this week.ReplyDelete
I never have flu shots yet. Thanks for reminding I needed one this year.ReplyDelete
Asus, never in my life that I have a flu shot. Perhaps its about time that I take 1.ReplyDelete
Great job! It's better to be healthy than sorry (or prevention is better than cure). It will also be good to always take lots of vitamin C. Keep healthy!ReplyDelete
That's great! I don't get flu shots here, I hate needles, although I need it but I don't want to lol. Good job!ReplyDelete
Nope, we didn't and I assume that vaccines is everyone's own different decision, I'm way too anti with vaccines now since it had one side effects for my son that doctor's will never admit.ReplyDelete
It's time of the year in which we all need this flu vaccine. Here hospitals and drugstores are also promoting such.ReplyDelete
Oh, I missed this flu shot offered by Mercury Drug, I've been wanting to avail their discounted flu vaccine.ReplyDelete
I've been eyeing this flu vaccine offer of Mercury Drug, sad to say, I missed it.ReplyDelete
Prevention is always better than cure. :)ReplyDelete
Hehehe! Getting a shot is a very challenging task for us. It's not easy being pricked by needles. Hehehehe!ReplyDelete
