OK, TV news breath, I've had it! The notion that there is some kind of federal mandate that you show people getting shots--all the gory details--every time you have a story about the flu or anything else that might require, or even have as a low-level option, a shot has run its course.
Some of us react viscerally to needles. We know what a shot looks like and feels like. You don't have to keep showing it story after story after story. So cut it out, dang it!
