Flu Shots

Aloha Everyone,

According to the WHO (World Health Organization), COVID levels are hovering near 2020’s pandemic’s initial peak.  

We belong to the high risk groups in terms of age, prior infections, effects of long COVID or other immunocompromised conditions.

J.J. and I felt great this morning and stopped at a Walmart pharmacy to inquire about the new COVID vaccine. There was an employee enthusiastically calling out to shoppers to get their flu shots. She explained the new COVID vaccine is expected in mid-October. So we got the flu shot.

As an expression of thanks for getting our flu vaccines, we each received a small packet. The only thing of value to us is 220 mg ALEVE plus a small tube of Eucerin Sensitive Mineral Face Sun Protection.

To alter our home dining menu, we went to Seafood City Supermarket for rice noodles and veggie and Shanghai lumpia. Next door at ChowKing, we ordered two boxes of Siopao with pork asado. These are our grandnephews’ favorite Chinese food. I telephoned my sister for her to pick up a box of steaming hot Siopao. 

Aloha -- Cathi
