Get you that Fauci Ouchie

Seriously, y’all, I miss real dice. Get the vaccine.

I got super lucky; I am on my first shot and get my second one in a few days. I’m working at the geological survey right now, and someone basically dropped from the rafters and jabbed my arm. (Well, it was more like a pharmaceutical school called out office and offered us leftover vaccines because they were going to expire, but it *felt* like a ninja with a vaccine.)

See you guys on Monday with some splash art, and then back to comics the week after.


You’re lucky. My second shot, I swear the person administering the shot had to get up and move back around the table before they could somehow get enough clearance to manhandle that huge needle around and poke it almost through my arm. I thought I was jabbed with an unused section of the Keystone Pipeline. I was sore for days.

All nurses are Ninja vaccinators. Whatever we need to describe them as as the heroes of our society doing great work.

I can’t speak for the US, but in the UK the queues at vaccine venues are out of the door, and these are *only* people who have been summoned to come get the shot. And the staff don’t mess around – they just get on with it. Tirelessly. For 12 hours a day.

Clerics, man. No wonder they’re so OP.

Back in January I had the privilege of helping a health care worker get her vaccine; she hadn’t realized it was a drive-through setup until her previous driver had dropped her off at the wrong side of the fairgrounds. There were lots of cars there, but the wait was less than the wait to watch for side effects.

Come April, and I’m eligible by age. I sign up, and get an appointment at the same location. I had no waiting, except afterwards.

Yesterday I got the second shot. Again, I drove up, got my shot, went to the waiting area, and drove out fifteen minutes later. But when I had first gotten to the parking lot entrance, I had noticed a sign: NO APPOINTMENTS NEEDED. I’m really hoping that that’s a sign of many places to get vaccines, and not a sign that large numbers of people aren’t getting them when they could be.
