It was about time for me to get my 2nd dose. We were told that we could register our appointments starting last week. My 1st dose was on 8/28, 2 weeks after the rest of my coworkers. For what reason, I don’t know. Probably because I’m younger.
I didn’t get a text message or notification of any kind, so I tried the system to see if I could book an appointment. Strangely enough, it said that my booking period was the day before. I told the admin staff about it. I was kind of getting annoyed because I wanted to get the second dose ASAP.
At around 5pm, I got a message from work telling me to go to a local gynecologist to get my shot before 7pm. I knew that vaccines had been distributed to smaller clinics in an effort to stop people from going to hospitals and clogging them up. Also, that same morning, we had gotten a notification telling us that appointments were no longer needed for 2nd doses.
So I showed up at 5:30pm. Two old ladies, who were volunteers, asked me if I was on the list. I said it was my 2nd dose. They gave me a form to fill in, and then I waited for 1 minute before I got my shot. I asked the doc to write in the lot number of my vaccine. I know it’s needed for international travel. It took a while, because he was pretty old lol. We got it done, then I went home.
I was pretty grumpy that night, and took a 3-hour nap the following day. Overall, it wasn’t too bad. It wasn’t as bad as the 1st dose.
