All in the name of research

I volunteered to participate in a flu vaccine study last fall and was accepted as a participant.  It involved getting a shot which may or may not have been the flu vaccine, 3 blood draws, weekly phone calls and reporting every trip to the doctor or illness.  It was a little intrusive, but I'm glad I did it and hope I will find out whether I got the real vacinne or the placebo.  I did not get sick - so who knows.  I'm glad it's over, though!
