California/my county announced the vaccine eligibility extension to the 12-15 year old group today while I was at a soccer tryout with Sam. Serendipitously, Sam's school announced a high school night at a local mass vaccination site.
We hustled out of tryouts, picked up Nick, & headed for the mass vaccination location. It took about 60 minutes from start to finish, and included a lot of walking. Unfortunately for those around us, Sam was just coming off of his 3rd tryout of the week, and I had just finished a 6 mile walk with a friend. We were both tired, and "fragrant". The longest part was the mandatory 15 minute wait, after the shots.
The second vaccine appointments are booked, and I am SO, so very thrilled that both boys have their first vaccine. I feel so lucky that we were able to quickly respond tonight, and get it done. Sam texted my parents, and let my mom know that he was getting vaccinated "for her". He's a sweet kid, most of the time. ;-)
The mass vaccination site had a DJ, prizes, & so many volunteers. I'm grateful for the volunteers, science & the availability of vaccines in my area. Hurrah!
