It seems many DUers have either received their 1st vaccine or have been scheduled. Curious [View all]

about whether my perception is accurate.

I am not expecting to get the vaccine in MA until this summer. My husband and I are under 65 and we don't have any health issues listed as comorbidities. I was really hoping to have our vaccines before May when my daughter is due with our first grandchild. Instead we will get tested and quarantine for 2 weeks. Just hope her due date is on time!

How about you?
