Storyline

With nurses Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo and Betty Jo by her side, Janet mounts an influenza vaccination campaign. To prevent a flu outbreak, she plans on providing a free shot to every single person in the valley. Beyond getting her novice nurses accustomed to poking a needle into real human flesh, Janet may have some problems from needle phobic patients, such as Uncle Joe. But they manage to inoculate every single person in the valley except the back woods Tweedy family, led by the family patriarch Jasper Tweedy, who speaks less with his mouth and more with his shotgun. Janet is concerned as the multitude of Tweedy children alone could start an outbreak of the flu. Janet tries to reason with him, use an old checkers playing friend (Uncle Joe) to soften him up, have her pretty nurses cozy up to his eldest son, Claude Tweedy, and use the perception of authority (Orrin) to force him. But their best line of attack in getting the Tweedys immunized may be Jasper's dog, Gus. Written by Huggo
