Girl Freaks Out Over Flu Shot

Michaela was interviewed live on the Queen Latifah show this week about the two-year-old video and whether she’s still afraid of flu shots.

Michaela says, as the video’s popularity grows, more and more people are starting to recognize her as the “Flu Shot Girl”, but says her reaction to needles is much calmer now that she’s two years older, except when her brother Keanu is in the room.  Keanu sums up his involvement by saying, simply, “Brothers will be brothers.”
