Today was the day that the kids got their first dose of Pfizer/BioNtech. Tammy dropped us off downtown and headed to do a bit of shopping and recycling. I got to run through the rat maze with the kids.
We got to the Telus Convention Centre at 3:15 for the 3:30 appointment. We had to wait until 3:20 to line up. It took until 5:00 to get the kids vaccinated. It took a long time, but not as long as ours.
There was a brief scare when someone said that they were out of the Pfizer (that’s the only one approved for the kids’ ages) but that was a false alarm. Shannon gave them their shots with a minimum of fuss.
Tammy picked us up and we stopped to get Wendy’s on the way home.
In ten short days, they’ll be 90% resistant to COVID.
As a parent, there are no words. I want to cry right now.
On a more upbeat note, Ian was excited just to go downtown. He hadn’t seen the skyscrapers close up since forever.
