Mood On Monday, Waiting For My Vaccine

Another one for looking back on. A record of what we thought at the time. [Whither?]

Have you had your Fauci Ouchie? Credit for the term goes to an unnamed six-year old.

Text, “A 6-year old ballet student asked me today if I’m excited about getting my “Fauci Ouchie” soon, and I will now be referring to the covid-19 vaccine as only that, because it’s the cutest thing ever.” @EmmaScott, Jan 21, 2021

 
I’m waiting.

I wouldn’t say that I am waiting patiently. Vaccine tomorrow? Here’s my arm.

I understand. I expect to wait a long – or relatively long – time. I’m at the back of any line.

… for age. To old to worry about returning to college. Too young to tick any of the Phase 1 boxes. CDC: When Vaccine is Limited, Who Should Get Vaccinated First?

… for lack of co-morbidity. Happy about that.

… for job. I am neither critical medical personnel, nor an essential worker. While I may be a joy and a delight to all who know me, my presence off the property is not vital to the functioning of society.

Staying home is not that much different from life in the before times. It would be nice to have a choice.

Stay safe. Stay sane.

  1. I am eligible but there are no nearby sites available yet. I too am trying to be patient. We have similar situations: life isn’t very different than pre-pandemic days but it would be nice to have a choice.

  2. I’m eligible for age and co-morbidity. My old peoples’ building is holding clinics, starting with people age 75 and up. I didn’t get into the first one, but there is another later this month. Life in this building is different than it would have been in my old apartment.
