Getting Mama vaccinated

Seeing Mama get vaccinated brought tears to my eyes. This appointment was hard-won. It took endless hours on hold and refreshing websites multiple times daily for the last several weeks. I couldn’t believe my luck last night when I found an appointment opening for this evening.

I only had to drive her about 15 minutes to a clinic for seniors 75+ within our own county. Previously we could only find appointments at least an hour’s drive away in the next county, so this was wonderful!

Having worked so hard to keep Mama alive and well for the last 9.5 years, I felt immense relief at seeing this vaccine go in her arm. We will still be careful and isolated, especially until two weeks after the 2nd dose, but I can sleep better knowing Mama is being protected.

    Here in NL I’m on the priority list Health occupation), but I’m happy to wait until it’s my turn. Until then I’ll continue to work from home and ‘keep calm & carry on’

  2. You are in a vulnerable category yourself, Gabriana, so you should get the vaccine too. But your rules are probably different from ours. I guess you don’t have a needle phobia. I couldn’t watch anyone getting the vaccine.


    • Yes, you’re right Bert. I am in a vulnerable category–both due to my immunosuppressive treatments and for being a sole caregiver to an elderly disabled parent. The rules here change frequently and are very complicated. Sadly it seems both disabled/chronically ill people, as well as family caregivers, are being devalued. It isn’t new, but it is infuriating.

      Oh, and I do have a needle phobia. Though it has gotten a bit better after having to give myself daily injections for the last few years. This injection was too momentous not to watch!
