Today, Lilliam and I went to the Ministry of Health and took our flu shots. As you can see from the photo above, there is nothing to it. The cost is less painful. It is given for free. Who said you can’t get something for nothing.
There are two injections given. One in the left arm and one in the right. One is given for pneumonia and the other for influenza. With H1N1 in our midst, it is a wise precaution to take advantage of this free service.
I was told that they are receiving the medicine from France.
To get to the Ministry of Health, go East on the InterAmerican Highway and make a right on the street behind the Super Baru supermarket.
The first stop sign will be by Java Juice. Continue on in the same direction.
The second stop sign will be the one near the bus terminal. Continue in the same direction.
The next stop sign has Clinica Cattan on the right. Make a right turn at this corner. You will see a guard gate on your left a short distance from the corner. Enter onto the grounds of the Ministry of Health. Follow the road around to the back of the big building. The morgue will be on the right and where you want to go is on the left.
However, if you do not heed my warning and get this flu shot, the next time I see you might be in the building on the right. I don’t want that to happen. Go get your injections.
