My First Shot

I headed down to the Portland Convention Center to get my first dose of the Coronavirus vaccine. It was a very fast and efficient process and provided more people watching opportunities than I had had in more than a year. Also, the woman who gave me my shot is the mother of two of the First U youth I met when I was doing YRUU. Portland, the biggest small town in the USA.

There were stern “no photos!” rules, but I couldn’t resist grabbing this photo of the discarded stickers saying what time people could leave after their 15- or 30-minute resting period. As you can see from all those 6 p.m. stickers, my appointment was at the end of the day. I got the Pfizer shot.

And here you can see that I was one of 13,000+ people to get the Pfizer vaccine that day.
