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.

California snags sixth in vaccinations worldwide

This is hot off the press! A big piece of really good news from California today. The Golden State came in 6th place today in a global ranking of vaccine administrations. Here is the complete listing of that super six:

  1. The United States
  2. China
  3. The European Union
  4. The United Kingdom
  5. India
  6. California

Yes, with 20% of our 16+ population receiving at least one dose and more than 10.6 million vaccinations total, California is right up there with some of the most populous nations on earth. Let’s not forget to note that the 1-5 slots are countries. Lol. An often forgotten fact is that California, in terms of gross product, is the 5th largest economy in the world.

Way to go California!
