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!
