24 hours later…

It’s been more than 24 hours since I received my H1N1 vaccine, and so far the only problem I’ve had is a bit of a sore arm. (Maybe I shouldn’t have had the nurse use the left arm again, as that’s where I got my seasonal flu vaccine, too. On the other hand, I am right-handed.)

Sadly, I have not become autistic, despite having had all that mercury, formaldehyde, and witches brew of “toxins” injected “directly into by bloodstream.” I guess it’s just not to be.

I did notice one “side effect,” though. Shortly after I received my vaccine yesterday morning, I received an urgent call to the clinic and had to spend the next three hours dealing with a patient emergency. Fortunately, it didn’t turn out to be as urgent as it had been originally billed, but it took a lot of time to figure that out. Because of that lost time I was unable to finish the talk I have to give in a couple of hours, meaning that I stayed up late last night working on the talk, further meaning that I didn’t have time to cook up the usual logorrheic batch of not-so-Respectful Insolence on a hapless “victim” (I mean subject).

I know, that means that vaccines must cause other people to have emergencies requiring the services of the one vaccinated, thereby keeping that vaccinated person from anything other than a brief, snarky blog post making fun of how anti-vaccinationists confuse correlation with causation by pointing out how my being vaccinated must have caused my patient’s emergency! (Yes, I know my reality-based readers got the point, but you really do have to spell it out for the anti-vaccine trolls. Preferably in crayon, but I can’t really do that easily on this blog.)

In any case, I really must test my hypothesis next year, when it’s time to be vaccinated against the seasonal flu again.
