    CDC recommends one before travel.
    When I was young my Father was digging a hole with a long heavy bar that came to a broad chisel point - I always called it a spud but don't think that is the accurate name. Anyway, my Sister got to close and it came down right on top of her foot and came out the bottom of her shoe. She never shed a tear until she got to the Hospital and it took 4 nurses to hold her down for a shot. They cleaned the wound and dressed it and sent her home - no structural damage to the foot.

    Did you know the bacteria that causes Legionnairs Disease is commonly found in soil everywhere. The reason we don't get it is because it is in low concentrations and our immune system knocks it out if we do pick it up.

    In the service a guy was getting ready to go overseas so he was taking all his shots. He took the Black Plague shot and guess what, he got the Black Plague. Must be the shot was not attenuated enough. Spent 10 days in the Hospital.

    In my younger days crossing rusty old barbed fences found on state land a good idea to get a tetanus shot before the hunting season.like tune-up your truck every 10,000 miles back then!!

I agree with Tree about the farm equipment, except that I keep my tetanus up with five year boosters. I take shots for flu, pneumonia, shingles and unnecessary ugliness. Three out of four work.
    I get a Flu Shot every year from age 50 to now!

    The diphtheria vaccinations have really worked out well.
    There have been just 5 cases reported in the U.S. in the last 15 years!

    Last time I took a "flu shot" was in 1992.
    The wife and me were at the doctor for our regular check up.
    "How about a flu shot while you're here?"
    "Sure! Why not?"
    A week later, we knew, "Why not?"!
    We'd never been so sick!
    Haven't had a flu shot since and will never voluntarily take another!

    I got my first tetanus shot in the army at the reception center.
    It was painful to move the arm that got the shot, so naturally, I was given a broom to sweep the floor with.

    Never had a tetanus shot in my life. Actually only take a flu and pneumonia shot.
    When I was in the service I signed my own shot card and never took the shots.

    That shingles shot is important, even if the co-pay is high.
    I've know three people who got shingles, and they all say it was the most painful experience of their life.
