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?
Typhoid
Polio – Salk and Sabin
Yellow fever
Triple Shot (Whooping Cough ? ?)
Tetanus
Hepatitis
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.
