Mumps, Iowa and The Chepner's

Two days ago, the state put out a message urging Iowans between the ages of 18 and 46 to recieve a second (or a first) mumps vaccination

This includes me. :(

I don't like needles and Grandpa Chep said he had a horrible reaction to the vaccination.

I think I will go when we come back from Canada.

I'm just not excite about this. But since I work at a school and Mr. Chep works at a large manufacturing facility - I guess we better.

Let's hope we can keep in the clear.

Oooooh, I'm sure you're safe putting off the vaccination another 30 years. Wait, wait -- Canada? What's going on in Canada? Am I the last to know about Canada?

Go and have a wee look at my recent blog re vaccinations, and also follow the link thru my friends list to Beautiful's blog as well, as she has something interesting to say, and so does KarenR (who is a healthcare provider).

What the heck?? Are they doing experiments on Iowans? I haven't heard about getting mump shots!

I'm going to go follow Carol's link.
