#87: frequency of shots in Haiti (fwd)
Can a doctor, a nurse , or someone in the medical field help me figure out
why injections (piki as we say in Creole) are administered so frequently in
Haiti? The only time I or my children get injected here in the U.S is to get
It seems that in Haiti, every medicine comes in form of injections.
My mother was a nurse in Haiti. I remember she is used to give me those
injections with those big needles for no reason. I don't think I was even
sick then. Why is that?
Many Haitians in the U.S even lament that doctors here are not as competent
as those in Haiti because when you go to them they don't prescribe you any
medicine or even give you a "piki". (injection)
Can someone please comment on that phenomenon?
