There was traffic on the Belt Parkway and we got to the Aqueduct a couple of minutes after 8:00, my vaccine appointment time for dose 2. Thankfully, it didn't matter I was late. No lines this time- my mom and I walked right in. We showed our license and our paperwork, rode the escalator up and walked right to the spot where we were directed to a table to get our vaccine.
It was all so quick.
My mom went first and I followed 2 minutes later. With efficiency and not much talk, our shots were done and we sat in the seats for our 15 minutes.
And now, hours later, we wait for any side effects. Friends and family we know have had varying responses to dose 2- some have had fever, some just fatigue, others felt fine. I've been tired today, but it's also the first chance I've had to rest in weeks.
I'm so glad to be vaccinated. A step towards normal life again.
