My vaccination shot #1

I got my first COVID-19 vaccine shot today! Ronan made his appointment over the weekend and I decided to check out My Turn and see about getting mine too. The registration and sign up process was relatively purpose and I got an appointment at the UCSF vaccination site at Fresno City College.

The UCSF mobile site at Fresno City College is a drive-thru location. I didn’t even have to get out of my car which was super easy and very convenient. Don’t forget to wear a short sleeve shirt if you can as that’s the easiest way to get your shot in whatever shoulder you choose. Obviously shots are never fun and I was expecting some mild discomfort but I was pleasantly surprise that I didn’t feel a thing.

Tune out the noise and protect yourself, protect your family, and your fellow citizens. The more people that get vaccinated sooner, rather than later, is the best practice and strategy to get us out from under this pandemic. The vaccine is safe, free regardless if you have insurance or not, and the right thing to do for our city, state, country and global community.

Fresno City College is getting a parking structure!

I am a student at Fresno City College (FCC), and for 9 months, like everyone else, cannot take classes at the campus. The students who do come here would be here for just one reason, the Ram Pantry, a service at FCC that provides free food for students. As I have only been focused with classes online, I was completely oblivious to the fact that FCC is building a parking structure. This was at October 15th, which had a follow up groundbreaking event 5 days later. This will be a most useful and very welcome addition to all students, as parking at FCC is one of the few banes that plague students.

Parking is a nightmare because the lots are often full, and as soon as there is an open spot, other students will scramble to it like vultures descending on a carcass. That’s a shame, because it makes parking passes feel worthless, and has made me late for classes a few times (I would have to account for up to an additional 30 minutes). The parking structure’s construction is set to be finished a year from now in December. It will be 5 levels high, with 862 new parking stalls, complete with 40 EV charging stations.
