I got my H1N1 flu shot

I got my H1N1 flu shot at NYC Dept of Health's clinic in Coney Island this afternoon (the Fort Green clinic ran out of vaccine doses at 8:30 this morning). Once I got there I had to wait for and hour and a half, but private practices don't have it, so I had little choice. I qualify for the shot because of several chronic conditions and brought an MD's letter, but when my turn came all they wanted was my name, date of birth, address, and health insurance card (which they photocopied and returned to me). The antibodies become effective in one to two weeks (just in time for Thanksgiving).
