I got a flu shot a few days ago. So naturally I am feeling smug. I am immune entirely this year to the flu. People coughing and sneezing and touching things all around me are no problem. I am impervious to illness. I am free to be completely reckless with my health.
As you may have noticed I am quite the believer in the flu shot. I don't like the part where they stick spears of metal into my flesh. And I'm not wild about my arm hurting for two days. But that's all done now. The hard part is over and now it is the reaping benefits time.
Just how deliciously inoculated am I? I don't know, but it's probably a lot. I'll check the Internet.
Ha. According to the Internet this year's flu shot is 34% effective.
So, I'm not exactly brilliant with math, but I'm pretty sure that means...
I'M NOT GETTING THE FLU!
I mean, statistically speaking.
And for the record I'm pretty sure this sore throat is nothing.
