Jen had managed to score first shots for a fair number of people,
including Sue, Jerry, Alex, the cousin Dob's, and Nicole's parents.
But I had resisted -- not from any anti-vax concerns, but just
because I didn't want to feel as if I was jumping the queue. Finally,
in the last days of the last hour that her hospital was giving out
first jabs, I relented. We meandered around outside for an hour, waiting to see
if any spare doses were left and were rewarded when the administrators
said there were a few doses of Moderna available.
"We're going to go by age," she said. "How old--"
"FIFTY-EIGHT!" Jen shouted.
That was good enough to win the second of four leftover doses.
Blue skies ahead.
