Thread Name: BS: 2021 vaccination thread
Subject: BS: 2021 vaccination thread (why not)
Well, no, I have yet to be vaccinated.
If you're not interested in my explanation,
you can skip the rest of this opening post.


I have spent most of the year 2020 in a mental health clinic
within driving distance of Albany, New York.
So I am in what is called "congregate housing," living in an on-campus residence,
where strict protocols are being observed to prevent infection.
Up to this moment, NO patient has tested positive for COVID-19,
although clinic staffpersons have done, several times.

Right now we don't have vaccines for us patients.
Our clinic has worked out an account arrangement with a lab.
This is for the screening tests,
which each patient does twice a week.
These tests are different than a diagnostic COVID-19 test.
So we're in the 'sample-collection' stage of testing
and getting back the results from the lab.

I don't know if any of the staffpersons at the clinic
have been vaccinated or not.
You may rest assured there is a lot of TALK about vaccinations here,
it just has yet to start.

Having said all that:

why not a thread
concerning Mudcatters and their loved ones
getting the vaccine this New Year?
