Your Best Shot to Stay Healthy
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Lori was dreading going to the doctor's office today. Her mother had scheduled an appointment to get her flu shot. She hated getting shots. They hurt!
 
2     Lori and her mother arrived at the doctor's office. Lori nervously clutched her favorite stuffed bear while she waited for her name to be called. Then she heard the nurse say, "Lori Filors, follow me please." So she did.
 
3     In the examination room, Lori had her height, weight, and temperature checked by the nurse. Then the doctor came in to quickly check her over.
 
4     "I don't understand why I need a shot," Lori complained.
 
5     "I want to keep you from getting the flu. You have asthma and you don't need any complications from the flu," the doctor said.
 
6     "Well, what about all the other shots I have had to face in my lifetime?" Lori asked.
 
7     The doctor had to laugh. "I think you are being quite dramatic. Most of the shots people need are given by age two. I doubt you remember them. You haven't even had your tetanus booster shot to prevent lockjaw because you are not twelve yet."
 
8     "Lockjaw?" Lori asked. "What's that?"
