It took days of registering and making calls to get my time and place for an appointment to receive the vaccine. When it opened for me I took a deep breath and was relieved and happy to be on my way toward getting ahead of COVID. Thanks to family and friends for giving advice, also making calls and sharing encouragement. The first appointment for me was last Saturday and even a slight sleeting did not stop my getting there on time. The whole thing was much easier than I expected – capable friendly technicians, an easy shot of the vaccine into my arm and relief for me. When the technician handed me the card she said, “Be careful with this – it is the proof that you have been here and received a shot. Don’t lose it.” Smiling I nodded to her as I adjusted my mask.
