The Big Read 2021 @ FCC

Fresno City College recently received a $15,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Big Read initiative. The Big Read project brings communities together around the shared activity of reading and discussing a book. FCC has collaborated with the Fresno County Public Library, FCC Art Space Gallery, and the SCCCD Foundation to make this event possible. This year’s Big Read focuses on the book, An American Sunrise by Joy Harjo, the current US Poet Laureate and the first Native American to receive this achievement.

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.
