I finally got my adult TDAP (Pertussis) vaccination today and a shot has never felt so good because
I love you
and your babies
and it feels good to be part of a solution instead of a problem.
Because I might actually get to meet my brand new niece this summer, and my friends are in their childbearing years, and I may be crazy enough to add another crazy to our little family of crazies someday.
Because it's important to be responsible and protect our little ones.
Because someone I love has been hurt. And I love her and all her babies.
Because it feels good to be proactive.
Schedule your appointment today because you can. If your primary care physician won't order the shot for you there are other doctors who can. My doctor didn't have the shot, but Nattie Hopewell in Kahuku did. If you're local the Hauula shopping center has a clinic who will administer the shot as well. It's an easy, small way to make a HUGE difference in your community.
Plus, you might get a really cool cartoon band-aid to wear around for the day. Win/Win.
