One year ago.
December 22, 2020.
I received my first vaccination shot.
I remember working until 0700 the morning of.
My appointment was at 0925.
I decided to take a small nap before I had to drive to the city and get the vaccination shot at the big hospital downtown.
I very nearly overslept!
I was driving hellbent for leather on the way down.
Thank goodness traffic wasn’t yet recovered.
I stood in line for 23 minutes.
Got my shot from a friend of mine.
And went back home to go back to bed.
I was home and back in bed by 1100.
Because I had to be back on shift at 1430.
But I was so very grateful that the vaccines had been developed,
And I was able to get mine within two weeks of them being released.
I was even more grateful when the vaccines opened up to the regular population.
Slight sore arm.
Got up and went back to work.
Like the good soldier I am.
