Good news: today I got my first coronavirus vaccination. I received it at a vaccination event sponsored by The Clinic and the Pontotoc Technology Center where I teach photography. It was the Moderna brand. So far, the only side effect has been the most common: soreness at the injection site.
Abby is still in the hospital, but fortunately got vaccinated with both doses of the Pfizer brand weeks ago, so hopefully she is protected in her situation. She sounded much better on the phone, and might be able to come home in a day or two.
In the meantime, her Chihuahua, Summer, is still moping.
Many of our acquaintances have been vaccinated as well (and my spouse) – they work in the medical field, for the DOD, so they had priority. Hopefully, my chance isn’t too far off.
(Still, I’d rather teachers and grocery/restaurant employees get it before I do – they’ve been on the front lines this whole time.)
