This reminds me, I have to clean the chimney flue.

What bugs me about this commercial?  Notice, they have done away with the "At the corner of happy and healthy" slogan.  CRAPPY AND NAPPY!  Too many foreigners were asking where the corner of happy and healthy was.  Moving on...

Walgreens, is going to guilt you into getting your Flu shot!  You don't want to cause an epidemic in your community!  Do you?  AngryAngryAngryAngryAngry  STFU!!!  Hey Donna, do you still work there?

I should probably get one.  I used to get it every year and then H1N1 happened and when they put the largely untested vaccine in with the flu shot, I stopped.  Haven't gotten one since.

I'm going to get my flu shot (for free) tomorrow.

Every year they do free flu shot events in conjunction with one of the local TV stations and one of the chain clinics or pharmacies.

Usually it's Centra Care. Once it was at Walgreens. Tomorrow it's at Centra Care again, just not the one I usually go to.

Hafta drive a bit farther.

Thank God they've moved on from the corner of Happy and Healthy!  I hated that slogan and the smarmy and snarky guy's voice, and all the other voices who said it.  I wonder if the two lesbian old ladies who go to the nude beach are still with them?  LOL

It's not a good idea to do both vaccinations at once.  But the medical providers do it so they can get it done in one visit for convenience and expediency.  I hope your bro is OK!

I work in pharmacy and we frequently give them together. Corporate pushes us to get as many shots as possible. Personally, I hate it. I wish they'd just let us go back to slinging pills like we used to.

I don't have to wear that stupid band-aid, do I?
My blood clots very well, even with my 325 mgs of aspirin every day. Tongue


And...what if I want my shot in my tush?  And, I want a red nose too! Dammit!

I wonder what success rate this year's flu shot is going to have.  Last year's wasn't so great.  Ouch

Those stupid red noses look orange to me!

I'm so pro-flu shot.  I know last year's flu shot wasn't as great as other years, but it still probably could have prevented a lot worse conditions or death for some people.

I actually liked this commercial when I first saw it, because it feels like it could drive the point home of the importance of the shot for those on the fence.
