Thursday/ got my flu shot

I got my flu shot today.   The flu shots here in the USA this year protects against 3 strains of flu virus :

  • A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)-like virus (the same strain as was used for 2009 H1N1 monovalent vaccines);
  • A/Perth/16/2009 (H3N2)-like virus;
  • B/Brisbane 60/2008-like antigens.

I will also try to stay away from people that try to cough and sneeze on me! : )  – remember that the latest cough and sneeze ‘etiquette’ says to crook your arm and sneeze into your arm and shoulder, NOT into your hands !
