I signed up for the vaccine as soon as I was eligible (eight days ago), and today I went to the Bushwick Educational Complex in Brooklyn. I stood in a very long line in the cold for about 30 minutes, then realized that older people (like me) were being brought indoors through a different, shorter line. I joined that line. At about 1:15 p.m., I got the Moderna vaccine, which is the one selected by New York City. Every day, more testing sites open, and more people are vaccinated. I have an appointment to return in 28 days for my second shot. If everyone gets vaccinated, we can stop this pandemic that has killed 400,000 of our fellow citizens.
