I got my flu shot at Walgreen's this morning. I usually have it done at my doctor's office, but Walgreen's is running a program, at least around here, where for every flu shot they bill, they give a free one to someone at risk who can't afford it. Anyway, it was the strangest thing. The staff person put the injection in the muscle of my left arm, below the shoulder, as usual, but I didn't feel anything at all. It was like getting touched with a pencil eraser. No sting, no sensation of the faccine going in, nothing. My arm aches all the way down to the fingers now, so I'm guessing the needle did go in, but at the time I wondered if he'd forgotten to take the cap off or something. Why would an injection feel like that, instead of the normal quick "ouch" and it's over? I'm just more curious than anything.

thin needle, and the vaccine is probably not very viscus (or not think)
