Sure, a flu shot is very helpful this time of year, but if you’re in Maine in October, you definitely need your rabies shot.
That’s because Werewolves are everywhere your turn in the days leading up to Halloween.
Since this is Maine and it’s Halloween Season, the old rules of Werewolfing do not apply.
They do not have to wait until the full moon to run wild, howl at the night sky, and chase you through the woods until your lungs explode and you can’t possibly go another step.
Because of a little Halloween Magic provided by The All Hallows Society, Werewolves are free to roam the streets of Maine until the sun rises on November 1.
And I’m not saying that all Werewolves are out of control, or looking to turn you into an afternoon snack, but as a breed, they cannot be held responsible for their behavior after the transformation.
So just to be safe, you really should make sure your rabies shot is up to date.
All Maine hospitals have an ample supply of the shot. Your PCP should also be able to administer it to you at an office visit.
So what are you waiting for?
Get your shot, and then participate in the nightly Running of the Werewolves.
There’s nothing quite like howling at the moon while you tag along with the wolfpack as it swiftly and mercilessly makes its way across the state.
Honestly, I cannot think of a better, more exciting way to collect steps for my FitBit.
If you need more information on where to get your rabies shot, or how to meet up with your local Werewolf pack, call the tool free hotline at 800-WOLFRUN.
And don’t worry. The side effects of the rabies shot aren’t as bad as the anti-shotters want you to believe. Sure, you might throw up, develop a slight fever, urinate on the carpet, or have a sudden urge to bury bones in your backyard, but I assure you that all clears up in one to three days.
Hope to see you out there on the road tonight! It’s definitely going to be a real howler!
