As of last Friday, we have received both shots of Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine as part of the first wave of the >65 age group. We only traveled 8 minutes from home, and we’ve had no negative reactions. Check that milestone off the list.
Thanks go out to our NH Governor Sununu for setting up the system which has not been without some bumps along the way, C&J Bus Service for donating their station which works perfectly for a mass distribution like this, and to the NH National Guard and local EMS folks who are doing a great job administering the vaccine.
Both our shots were delivered without getting out of our car. We opened the car door, pulled up our sleeves, and the shots were administered.
Almost 100,000 NH residents have received the vaccine which is 7.3% of the population, and the supply continues to increase each week.
Have you been able to receive your vaccine or get an appointment?
Life has not dramatically changed, but a huge load was lifted off our shoulders. We’re still wearing masks, social distancing, and doing more curbside pickups than shopping trips, but it alleviates the permeating fear.
We received a card with both shots listed including date, source, and lot info which have been stored with other important papers. Before I put them away, I made a reduced copy on my printer and laminated them. We now have them handy in our wallets if anyone wants to see them.
It’s been a long year, and 2021 will not be normal either, but this is a good time to stop and thank family members who have gone out of their way to check on seniors, to pick up a few groceries, grab a library book, take a pet to a vet, or drop off a dessert – thank you. It’s also a good time to thank friends, who have made an effort to call, text, or email to check in and make sure all is well. Hearing your voice and trading laughs means the world.
It’s also a perfect time to thank the blogging community for helping us keep our sanity during this isolation. Encouragement, positive messages, chuckles – I thank you for all them.
Life is good this first day of March unless my friends who did travel to SC post too many photos of those cute turtles, beautiful camellias, and their smiling faces, and I sink into a deep depression. 🙂
