The Woman with the Yellow Jacket
Entry 434 for Monday June 21, 2021
The core questions:
- What did you do today? Went for my first shot of Pfizer together with Aurelia and Yolanda; took the day mostly off work as we were told to take some time off for father’s day and I needed the rest.
- What did you enjoy? Just like last time, the care and service at the auditorium was excellent. Yolanda went with us and was able to help since I was in a wheelchair (broken leg) while Aurelia parked the car. We made it through a quick process with me in the wheelchair helped up the ramp by one of the guards there and quickly into the vaccination area. My scheduled appointment was actually for Tuesday but Aurelia and Yolanda had Monday. It made sense to all go together. We entered so quickly that Aurelia didn’t catch us before we made it inside but explained to the people at the entrance the situation and referring to the man in the wheelchair with “The Women with the Yellow Jacket” which was distinctive enough to get her waved through quickly to meet us. Hence the title on the blog post. When Aurelia said that I couldn’t help but bring up childhood memories of “The Man with the Yellow Hat”.
- What did you find difficult? This was my second trip for a covid19 vaccine. The first one was Cansino (or Convidecia) which has not been approved for regular use in North America and so far is not considered as “vaccinated” by other countries once we may have to deal with passport vaccinating. I took the first one offered (for emergency use only my México) to all educators in México as I followed the first available rule. When Aurelia signed up for her age bracket I decided to as well knowing that I would be better protected with this vaccination.
- What has changed? Now vaccinated with two different vaccines against covid19, will need to schedule the 2nd shot of Pfizer in a few weeks.
