I got the second dose of the Moderna vaccine a week ago, today.
It's beginning to sink in now. This will make a difference, life will not change much, but I will feel more calm, more at peace.
Thank you to:
The scientists who worked to get vaccines developed so fast.
Dolly Parton, who donated a million dollars toward the development of the Moderna vaccine.
Everyone who is working to get the vaccine distributed across our large and diverse nation.
The staff of our small Adventist Health hospital, who organized well planned and well executed events to get shots in the arms of people in our community.
The EMT men and women, who stood patiently by their ambulance while monitoring us for allergic reactions to the vaccine.
I believe both the nurses who gave the shots and the EMT personnel were volunteering their time. So a double thank you!
Jeanne and Joyce, who checked on me for several days to make sure I was OK.
Samson and Faith, who have not been for a walk this week. They have their dog run, but that's no way to live. I promise this will change soon. I was pretty sick for a about four days, so no fun for them.
As I write this, it's beginning to sink in that I did it.
And I smile as I sign off on this post.
