Every Monday, Paula Light, with her The Monday Peeve prompt, gives us an opportunity to vent or rant about something that pisses us off.
Okay, I’m a patient man, but my patience is wearing thin. I’m in what is considered to be a high risk group when it comes to COVID-19. It’s not because I have any underlying medical conditions that would make me more susceptible to the virus. It’s because I’m an old fart.
I was very happy to learn a few weeks ago that those of us who are 65 and older were moved up into the top tier group when it comes to vaccination priorities. Yay. I may survive this scourge yet!
As soon as that news came out, I logged on to my county’s health department website and filled out and submitted an online form to request an appointment for a vaccination. Two weeks went by and I heard bupkis…until this past Friday.
That’s when I got an email from the county health department.
As you might imagine, there is a lot of excitement about getting the COVID-19 vaccine and we are working our way through hundreds of requests. We just wanted to send you a quick note saying we haven’t forgotten you. We are still reviewing your request to receive a COVID-19 vaccination and will be providing you further information soon. If you are eligible for vaccination, expect an email in the coming days with instructions on how to schedule an appointment.
Wait, what? “If I’m eligible”? You’re the people who notified me that I am eligible. You already know that I’m eligible.
So I guess I’ll have to continue to be patient as I wait to see whether or not I’ll get vaccinated against COVID-19 before I succumb to it.
