flu shot mission aborted

Dad and Mom went out earlier today to get free flu shots on base at Fort Belvoir, only to discover that the facility had run out of the vaccine. Dad asked the medical professionals why the lack of vaccine hadn't been reported on the flu hotline-- which Dad had called before taking Mom onto the base-- and the answer was that the hotline hadn't been updated in a while. Let that be a lesson to you all: it's often better to talk with a live person than with a recording. This should also be a lesson for the folks on base: if you insist on using recorded messages, make sure they include some sort of language about when the recording was last updated.
