I Am Vaccinated!

It is done!


in the late afternoon,

I was vaccinated at,

the Palais des Congres.

in the Chinatown of,

my beautiful ugly.

I am so relieved,

I am so grateful.

I am so happy,

that many of my,


my fellow 55 plusers,

decided to get vaccinated.

We are doing it to save,

our lives,


to save the lives of others.

I am so grateful to the,

competent, smiling, lovely,


who administered,

the dose of Astra Zeneca,

I am grateful,

that my government,

has made it available.

and yes, I am aware that I have used the word grateful three times, but, that is what I feel…. gratitude

This morning,

I have a little,

muscle soreness,

nothing serious.

I will look out,

for anything odd,

over the next,

couple of weeks.

I did my research,

I weighed the risk,


and I got the jab,

as the new vernacular puts it.

I urge all,

who can be vaccinated,

to be vaccinated.

I know that some people,

have health concerns,

but, ethical concerns?

rights violations?

I don’t get,

to me they give into fear,

and frankly ignorance.

Vaccines are the miracle of medicine.

They have and do save lives,

millions of lives.

By the size of the lines,

all around the city,

people are taking advantage,

of the opportunity,

if we can get to,

80 percent vaccination,

we can get herd immunity.

I don’t consider myself,

a blind follower,

a nameless sheep,

I have opinions,

I voice them,

but, I believe,


in self preservation,

and social solidarity,

I always have,

I hope you all do,


Stay safe, get jabbed.

Later girls,
