Today I made a second trip to Stockton to the vaccine clinic.
I had complained last month that the line to check in was very long, but then it only made it back to the street.
However, I had to just patiently wait in line as everyone else was in the same situation.
It was interesting to listen to the people around me talk to each other or to friends on the phone.
Observing behavior of people waiting in line is always interesting.
Finally after an hour and a half I was in the clinic and quickly received my shot. I was only an hour late. Then it was off to the observation room for fifteen minutes.
At least this time I didn’t have to wait in another line to make an appointment for the next shot.
It was a nice drive home through the Central Valley with a great view of the mountains that line the western edge of the valley. However, there was no snow on the tops of the mountain range like there was last month.
I am glad that I have my two shots, and am looking forward to two weeks from now when the vaccine is at full effectiveness.
Perhaps I will celebrate by getting my hair cut.
p.s. My estimate was just about right. Perhaps I should have estimated a shorter time 🙂
