Purple Heart of Childhood

I got my flu shot yesterday, one of several I have had over the years. I remember grand discussions in my childhood about which shot hurt most. Was it tetanus? or that TRIPLE SHOT? I will never forget the first time I left the Doctor's office without getting a shot with amazed relief. Polio was the great scare of my childhood, I remember the great power I felt knowing I was immunized. Shots were the wounds of childhood from fighting the never ending war against early mortality. Keep stabbin' Brooke!

Here are some of my immunizations what are yours?
Polio – Salk and Sabin
Yellow fever
Triple Shot (Whooping Cough ? ?)
Small pox

I came to late for measles and mumps shots. I also remember Booster shots. Since I have never had Boosterism, they must have worked. I expect cheerleaders never had their Booster shots. So sad.
