 In the grand scheme of this whole vaccination thing, I never considered myself a priority. I was more concerned that others who were the most vulnerable absolutely be vaccinated first — no ifs, ands or buts.
Although I was not yet in the qualifying age bracket, my wife pointed out that I was a cancer survivor, had two bouts with pneumonia and am considered an essential worker (me- dia). Still, I’m relatively healthy and follow all the coronavirus rules, so I figured I could go to the end of the line. Besides, as far as I knew, all available appointments were booked out a month in advance, and folks were told to stand down until all the 1A and 1B people who wanted it were vaccinated.
My wife and daughter had already been vaccinated as they work in education. They both urged me to get mine as soon as my category was allowed. Well, the other week I received an email from Retail Merchants of Hawai‘i of which our com- pany is a member. Hawai‘i Tourism & Lodging Association included RMH members in the 1C category to get vaccinated at Leeward Community College. I took a chance and went online to schedule an appointment. I was immediately grant- ed one for the next day for my first of two immunizations. Leeward CC is my college alma mater, kind of, as I never graduated with a degree. Still, I was looking forward to going back there and checking things out.
                                                    When I went for my appointment, the whole thing was set up kind of like a mainland amusement park. There were signs and flags I had to follow for parking. Once on foot, I had to follow a long, winding path cordoned off with “crime scene” yellow tape. Although there was literally no one in line, I had to follow these paths like the lines at Disneyland.
         City & County of Honolulu first responders were at the ini- tial take-in stations along with members of Hawai‘i National Guard. Everyone was pleasant and professional to ensure a safe experience. I was confident I was in good hands. I was guided to a health care worker who would administer the shot. When I asked her how many she had given out so far that day, she said around 30, but it was still early.
        She added she did 80 the day before. I joked that she could probably do it with her eyes closed, realizing I said that just before she poked me.
      Of course, her eyes were open and I didn’t feel a thing. I then had to go to one of the classrooms, where I waited for 15 minutes just in case there were adverse side effects from the vaccine. There was an observer walking around the desks, kind of like a detention room.
      Just like the good old days when I went to school.
