Get The Shot (MM #3858)

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The NASA minute. With Kevin mason, I find it interesting how simple words can get appropriated to something else. When I say the phrase get the shot, you know, I'm going to talk about COVID-19, right? In this case, wrong. I'm actually thinking about shingles. Reason being I've reached the age of past the age where I should have gotten the shingles vaccine. So I've been talking to my doctor, I've been talking to my pharmacist has been trying to find out, do I really need to get the shingles vaccine? I've been doing a lot of research online. You see the commercial shore, but because I once got chickenpox and by the way, I had a severe case of chickenpox at 12. I've still got the scars even on my forehead to this day. I wonder if I need to get the vaccine. Now of course I have a history in my family with shingles. My father got it bad about ten 15 years ago, and has periodic flare ups. So I fear, if I don't get the shot, what am I going to do? I think about it all the time, and I've talked to the doctor and I think want to finally get the shingles vaccine. Of course, it's not just one shot, has to be two, two to 5 months apart. When you tell people to get the shot, we're not just talking about COVID anymore, especially when you reach a certain age. That's the rough part.
