I will have it today! Feeling very grateful and excited. Many people i know already had the vaccine and none of them reported any problems. In 1971 my mother missed the diphteria vaccine for my 18 month old brother. I was nine at the time when what we thought a cold turned really bad very quickly. We saw our little brother literally dying in front of us, they call it the strangling angel. Drowning and being strangled at the same time. When the ambulance finally arrived it was too late.
