The Day I Got the Flu Vaccine!

date: 2020.10.14. Tue
weather: cold and windy

Yesterday, I got the flu vaccine shot. Do you know that some flu vaccines have problems? I saw that news on the newspaper. The article said the flu vaccine was exposed to the room temperature. When the flu vaccine is made, they need to be delivered to the hospital really safely and carefully. Also, there is a limit of temperature that keeps the flu vaccine fresh and good. But, at this time, while the flu vaccine was being carried to the hospital, the refrigerator temperature wasn't appropriate for this vaccine. So the vaccine turned bad and we couldn't get that vaccine. There is another problem with this vaccine. In another article, it said the vaccine has a white thing that seems to be sedimentation material. And because of that problem, my family decided to get flu vaccine later.
So my family (except my dad) got the flu vaccine yesterday! The vaccine problem is not solved yet. Still, there are bad flu vaccine, but my mom said if we did not get the flu vaccine shot right now, the vaccines would be gone soon. I am really confused about that word. There are flu vaccine problems, but why do people want to get flu vaccine now? So I asked my mom. My mom said it is because people don't want "twin-demic." Twin-demic means twin plus pandemic. And why is it twin-demic? Well, we already have one pandemic which is Corona virus! But if flu is also prevalent, it will become a twin-demic, and Korea will become really chaotic because of the Corona virus and the flu.
So I went to the children hospital to get a shot with my mom and my little brother. I was really nervous. I mean, getting a shot does not hurt so much. But I am nervous about the time after the shot! When we get the flu vaccine shot, the weak flu virus come into our body and fight with our white blood cells. While white blood cells fight with virus, our body becomes really weak and tired. At that time, I had a fever, shivering, and tiredness. It was a hard time. But I am good right now! I am really thankful to the flu vaccine. It keeps us healthy and strong from the flu. I hope the coronavirus vaccine comes out quickly and protects us from the coronavirus!
