Last week I was able to secure an appointment for a vaccination next Wednesday. I feel like I have hit the jackpot! It took my husband an hour on “Hold” to reach a real person at Kaiser, and she seemed just as tickled as we were that she could help out. A lot of people (two of them in my family) do not like vaccinations. One of my kids has fainted twice when receiving shots. Another is selective about vaccinations. Both of them will be getting innoculated when this vaccination is available.
I have had my share of shots in the arm and I don’t like them. I look away and try to think calming thoughts until it is over; this method works but it is never easy. This time, I have never been so happy at the prospect of a little vaccination pain.
The COVID pandemic has cast a pall over everything for nearly a year. Effective vaccination withstanding, I can’t imagine ever sitting in a theater shoulder-to-shoulder with a stranger again. I am looking forward to hugging my friends and it will be great to see our new grandchild without wearing a mask. What a terrible year this has been for so many reasons! Though it is coincidental, I find it fitting that my first step towards immunity is scheduled for January 20. I hope that you will soon be vaccinated, too.
HAVE A GOOD WEEK!
