About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Flu shots!

In keeping with my obsession with infectious disease, here’s a plug for getting your flu shot this season!

I got mine at Butler’s clinic last week. :) I was really close to getting my shot from my medchem professor, which would have been awesome. I cannot think of something more literal than my medchem professor stabbing me. But! A pharmacy resident gave me my flu shot and it was absolutely painless with no residual soreness or anything. She was a pro! And she gave me a sticker, so, automatic win.

I heard that they ran out so there won’t be another clinic until after Fall Break, but keep an eye out! Butler students get free flu shots with ID!

I only wish they had these awesome band aids.

    Perfectly fine! No pain at all! I will say the injection site is usually pretty sore for most of the flu shots I’ve ever gotten, and that’s usually the consensus. That pharmacy resident who gave me my shot was a shot-giving pro though. :D And I highly recommend getting vaccinated, at least to prevent the spread to vulnerable populations!

    How did you feel after your flu shot? I’ve never had one, but have contemplated getting one.
