H1N1 vaccine

Like everyone else in this country we have weighed the options as to whether to get Jace an H1N1 vaccine. Having decided that it was probably a good idea, we waited, with everyone else, to find out when it might be a available. I got a phone call from our pediatrian’s office saying that they had a limited supply of  vaccines. I have no idea how they got them when so many others have not, but perhaps, because go to a family care doctor instead of a true pediatrian, they have less children in the practice so they are not just limiting it to kids with asthma etc. We signed up to go Wednesday night and I told Jace he was going to get a piggy shot. He is a trooper when it comes to shots and actually likes going to the doctor’s office because he gets stickers. However, this time he informed me he didn’t want a piggy shot. At first I was worried this was going to be the start of a fear of shots, but he quickly added he wanted a donkey shot instead. When we went the doctor’s office the nurse was more than happy to play along. Jace got the very first donkey shot in the country!
