Thanks to our friends in the South Texas Medical Center, I have now joined the one-in-four Americans fully vacinated against the deadly COVID-19 scourge.
I received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine yesterday afternoon at 5282 Medical Drive, Suite 160. That vaccine only requires one shot. It was painless and simple, and as far as I can tell has absolutely no side effects. I felt healthier within minutes.
Am I going to get Coronavius now? No way! That silly stuff may crawl around on my hands or my nose, and may even get into my lungs, but the evil microbe has been rendered powerless by the dedicated scientists and health care professionals working with the Johnson & Johnson company.
If you're having a difficult time finding an appointment to receive the vaccine, don't rely on one or two locations. For weeks, I checked the same locations and kept receiving a "no appointments available" notification.
Instead, go to VaccineFinder.org and simply enter your zip code. They will give you list of locations in your area that have the vaccine in stock, and you can make your appointment online.
Let's all get vaccinated so we can finally throw these goofy masks in a trash can, once and for all.
By the way, if you haven't had a chance to check out my incredibly important "Ponderings During the Pandemic" podcast, I encourge you to do so right now. I'll place part one below, but you can find links to all three instalments under the video.
