Turns out I've been given a new temporary (3 to 6 month) assignment in work, joining the team who'll be running our agencies COVID vaccination clinic. Not sure what I'll be doing yet; screener / greeter / gopher; we'll see.

Of course this has the side effect of moving me up the queue for vaccination Booked myself for 9:30 am next Monday.

I received an email this afternoon that Iím scheduled for my 1st COVID-19 vaccination shot Sunday afternoon at a site set up by FEMA at the Texas Rangers baseball park. I was hoping for a smaller, easier to access site due to my mobility issues, but I got what got so Iíll just have to find a way to make this work. Iíve been told that I will get the 2nd shot in this same site a few weeks from now. Iím getting the Pfizer vaccine. We donít get a choice on which one, we get whatever they have at that site.

I don't think that getting a vaccine appointment is a matter of being tech savvy. It's more persistence, patience and the willingness to go through several applications, most of which are fruitless. If you are used to going online and have ever typed messages, it's filling out forms to show you are either old enough or fit other high-risk qualifications, then moving on from seeing the message "you should get an appointment" and then seeing most times, "no appointments available." Refresh screen, try again or wait a few hours or days and try again. I did take at least a week off in the middle of four weeks that I tried before getting appointments. I thought I'd give them time to get more vaccine, since they had run out early on in New York.

If you never use computers, that's another thing. But I'm 69, worked as a word processing operator before I retired, and many of the IT and operator people I worked with were old than I was.
