On Thursday morning I had a visit from a couple of medical professionals at Thompson River Pediatrics. Amber and Katie came to the K99 studio in Windsor to give me a flu shot. They brought Buzzy the Bee with them. Buzzy is a little guy that vibrates on your skin to take away the sting of a vaccination. They use him at Thompson River Pediatrics to help keep their young clients happy when they come in for a flu shot. I am slightly older than most of their patients, so I was curious to see if it would work on me.

Amber was in charge of Buzzy and Katie gave me the shot. You can see how it turned out in this short YouTube video:

Now is the time to start thinking about getting your vaccination for the 2016 flu season.
