I have been checking everyday. They started appearing on May 9 — a week ago. Today … BINGO. It was a nice sight. Made me happy. Rowen, our Newfie puppy likes them. First time she has seen them.

My 15-Year Old Daughter Got Her COVID-19 Vaccination Today, At 3:03pm — In New Hampshire, May 15, 2021.

by Anura Guruge



She had been real anxious to get the vaccination. She dreaded the thought of getting COVID. So, I was on the alert. I even called up N.H. ‘211’ on Wednesday the day after the CDC approved it for her age range.

I saw on TV that registrations for 15 & under will start on Thursday morning. I registered Thursday morning. Got a 2:35pm slot at “Walgreens” in Wolfeboro, N.H. There were only a couple of people around. It wasn’t as quick & slick as I had hoped. They made us fill in a “Walgreens” specific form so that they can capture our data. That didn’t thrill me. They also wanted her insurance! That annoys I. I though the government was paying for all shots. What happens to those without insurance?

Well, she got the shot — Pfizer 1st dose — at 3:03pm. How can I be precise. Because our 15-minutes were up at 3:18pm.

She was fine. A few hours later she said she had some pain in her arm. But, it wasn’t bad.

So, that is our story. But, she still needs a second dose.
