Got my Moderna booster...

... at Safeway today.
A fucking grocery store. Oh, they had qualified people and all, and I AM grateful, but it made me think about a magical world where we had a national health service like the rest of the civilized world, and we got our shots with no muss, no fuss, and from a large number of locations. All without involving grocery stores and drug stores. A magical world where anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, and other assorted whackjobs were relegated to the fringe of society, and ostracized for their bone-headedness.

A guy can dream...

1. I will dream right along with you, albacore ....

A few years back I had no health insurance and had a hard time even finding anyone who’d give me a freakin’ flu shot.

4. I hear you, my dear albacore...

Grocery stores and pharmacies are very convenient, after all.

And it was very easy.

Maybe someday we'll be like all the grown-up countries and have a national health service that we can be proud of.

5. Well I got mine at Costco today

They had only Moderna today, my first two were Pfizer. The pharmacist offered to give me an appointment on Monday, which turns out is their Pfizer day. But I have a farm and I had lined up already a helper for tomorrow. Both the first and second dose had me unable to walk for days with headaches, etc. BUT what relief to not worry!!!

Anyway, so I just decided to trust the CDC’s decision that it is ok to mix and match. Who knows, maybe I won’t get as sick with a different subtype. But of course, it might be worse! At least I have help tomorrow and if need be I can stay in bed and all my animals will be fed.

I join you with your wish.

6. I agree we need national health care, but I liked being able to get my booster at a

grocery store just three blocks away. I then did my grocery shopping after my 15-minute wait to make sure there were no dangerous side effects.

It's like when they set up voter registration drives in grocery stores. The convenience means more people are reached.

8. When I moved to Florida 32 years ago

I registered to vote in a grocery store. Haven't missed voting even once since then.
