I got a couple of tetanus shots over my lifetime. However, I never got a
flu shot. I HATE needles and any thought of being "injected". I have a
strange fear of spiders, scorpions, wasps, snakes... Love killing
mosquitoes. I have always had a feeling of fear against things that like
to inject and/or suck blood. Yikes!

They did not give me a leaflet like that here in the US. For some
reason, this reminds me of the leaflet found in the mailbox in a game
called Zork. ;^)
