Remember when getting vaccinated was a matter of public health; not a political football? Oregon State University (Home of the Beavers) remembers… and it was only 3 years ago! Kudos to OSU (not that one, the other one) for making it easy for students to get their Meningococcal B shot. One might say they lined up to get it like… dammed eager beavers.

Sliver Me Timbers
The worst thing about getting a sliver when you were a kid was Mom or Dad removing it with a needle… OUCH! Now that we’re all grown up, we can get “needled” at sliver-inducing plywood retailers like Sheridan Building Materials in Sheridan, OR, for the low, low price of $22.99 plus tax – or maybe plus tacks, as this IS a building supplies store first and foremost. Wood you believe it? (image via Quinn Comendant)
Have Shot, Will Travel
Vaccine passports? We don’ need any stinkin’ vaccine pass- oh, our bad, just a regular passport is all you need (at press time, at least) when flying out of Doncaster Sheffield Airport. They’ve even made things easy for you by putting the Vaccination Centre inside the airport. We repeat, the vaccine is coming from INSIDE the airport. (image via Tim Dennell)
The Daily Shot
So it has come to this: those vaunted vaccines don’t seem to provide lasting protection so booster shots are required, kinda like the annual flu shot that primes you for the annual influenza virus mutation. Leave it to Australia, the Land of All Things Poisonous, to take things up a notch: wake up, have brekky, get vaccinated, and buy more pharma stock. It’s the Aussie way. (image via Paul)
Chips Off the Old Blockhead
Well isn’t that nice, a sign for a vaccine clinic decorated with cute paw prints! Now tell us, how could anyone have a problem with that?
OMG… now it all makes sense! Not the wacky conspiracy theories of gummint door-to-door vaccination squads injecting y’all with tracking chips and making you magnetic and such. Nope, this must be where those loony rumors got their start – folks confusing the popular practice of vaccinating & microchipping PETS with human-type people getting a life-saving vaccination that does what human-type vaccines are designed to do: provide protection against a highly transmissible and debilitating viral plague. And if you DO seem more “attractive” after the jabs, maybe it’s because you’re a lot less dangerous to be around. (images via rmcnicholas)
