Well, well, well. I got my COVID vaccination at 3:13pm, today, at the ‘NH Motor Speedway’ Mass Vaccination Clinic.
They were only administering the newly approved, single-dose J&J vaccine. Yes, I know that it is NOT ‘the best’ — but that is OK. Being non-white it is unlikely that I would have qualified for anything else. Beggars (i.e., non-whites like I) can’t be choosers.
Funny. I did NOT see a SINGLE non-white at the whole MASS event — during my 4-hours there.
From what I saw I was the ONLY non-white — & the only one that was handing out (my appreciated) chocolates. SMILE.
It was a ZOO.
I was in the car for a total of 4-hours, including the mandatory 15-minute observation period. (Some folks were flagged for 30-minutes. Not sure why.)
My appointment was at 12:20pm.
I got my shot, from an OLD but still practicing pediatrician, at 3:13pm. So, just under 3-hours AFTER my appointment!
No pain. Did NOT feel a thing. The doctor did say, that as a pediatrician, he has done over 9 million ‘shots’ during his tenure. He was good.
No side effects. No headaches. No nausea. And no pain in the arm — at least of now. SMILE.
