Just got my first shot!

Just got my first shot of the covid vaccine.

I had an appointment in May at a pharmacy 50km (30mi) away, but one closer to home opened up for walk-ins. Got there nearly 2 hrs before they were scheduled to start this morning, I was second in line from the front. Maybe 5 people.

By the time I got out, the line up for vaccines was about a block long.

Astrazeneca, as that's what they're giving out at the pharmacies here in Canada since it doesn't require the ultra cold storage that Pfizer/Moderna does. Pfizer/Moderna are only being distributed through health & rec centers up here and is only open for those 60+. I'm 49. Also no J&J here in Canada yet.

I figured I'd get it done ASAP since they're predicting 18,000 new cases per day here in this wonderful conservative playground called Ontario.

Wife will be watching me for any rare ill side-effects (she had her shot two weeks ago). It's a load off my mind now that it's done.
