I made the drive to Worcester yesterday to get signed up for a primary care physician. It was simply a two page form with the standard information requested. I was smart enough to bring my identification paperwork with me and it paid off when I was asked for my DD 214 military service certificate given to me upon discharge from the USAF 42 years ago. That was it. They said they’d be in touch with a doctor and an appointment. I got that call and appointment later that afternoon. Because I need a primary doctor to begin receiving services I did not get my flu shot at the VA Clinic. Bummer! I promptly drove to Hannaford’s Supermarket Pharmacy and bought one out of my pocket, $54. Ouch!
My “Meet & Greet” with my new doctor wasn’t for another month so I didn’t want to wait that long. That $54 tab pretty much wiped out my remaining cash but my Social Security check arrives Wednesday, today.
I’m feeling a bit queasy today as a result of that shot. I hope it clears today as I must travel to get my repaired computer this morning. Hopefully my computer will be home and running fine by noon Wednesday.
