Vaccination

So, after a long wait, not knowing quite what was happening and not being able to find out, I got the call last night and we went this morning to the Queen Mary vaccination centre in Arts One and we were done – the merest pinprick, but the most enormous relief, like a large dark cloud which now is half removed, the endless anxiety and precautions, not that they stop, but they feel suddenly less a matter of life and death.

    Congratulations! Monika received hers this week, but though I’m a year older than you I haven’t heard a thing as yet. Patience is a virtue, they say…

    Got my first one yesterday — online appointment registration in Los Angeles County, quite a scrum…. but that done, it took a total of 30 minutes once I arrived on site, including assistance to make an appointment for the second dose, and waiting 15 minutes after vaccination for a possible reaction. My arm is a bit sore, but I am lightened by the event. Now possible to see and hold my new grandchild…. and make plans to come back to London in May. The newspapers here make it sound like it is a torturous process, but all my friends have had the same experience as I have had. The real problem is just getting the appointment
