It was swift and mostly painless, and that was just getting the appointment for my booster shot of Covid-19 vaccine.
My appointment was for 5:45 p.m. at the CVS Pharmacy in Palmetto Bay on US 1. I checked in at the pharmacy counter, waited while two other people got their shots, then got mine. The pharmacist, Cindy, was friendly — we chatted about antique cars — and I barely felt the “little pinch.” Over and done, I stopped to replenish my supply of low-dose aspirin. Checking out at the cashier took longer than getting the shot. (By the way, the shot was free thanks to Medicare.)
Twelve hours later, I have no side-effects other than a bit of soreness at the injection site. I did have some weird dreams involving me teaching a high school theatre class and then reporting to Det. Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach). Other than that, I’m fine.
Oh, yeah, I did have to reboot my implanted microchip.
