Op-Ed: I Just Got My Vaccine, So Sorry If I'm a Bitch


Can everyone just get off my back? I just got vaccinated.


The INCONVENIENCE of it all. First off, I had to drive 15 minutes to my appointment, then wait behind three people. In a PANDEMIC, for God’s sake. The lady didn’t even ask me how my day was, and they made me wait ANOTHER 15 minutes to "see how my body reacts.”


POORLY, I’ll tell you. I was so hungry by that point I had to go through the Starbucks drive-through.


And that eveningwell, don't even get me started. I had it all. Fever, body aches, carpal tunnelyou name it.


Yeah, I know I was supposed to do my part of the final project that’s worth 30% of my grade, but geez, the vaccine really just took it out of me. I’m not happy about it, either. My little CDC card is begging to be waved like my dad’s AmEx.


And sorry, no, I can’t cover your shift that Friday. My second dose is scheduled for the next Tuesday, so I really need to block the whole week off.
