You’ve got to hand it to Mother Nature. She’s the only one who could knock COVID-19 from the top of North Texas headlines. But as the temperatures rise above freezing and power does return to local not-made-to-be igloos, the pandemic will return to being the priority item.
Those in need of their second dose are no doubt worrying if they’ll make it within the designated time frame. Authorities are aware of the concerns and are assuring people that the 21-day window was not an absolute.
Once it is safe for staffers and patients to get together, they will ramp up like a mother-of-the-bride the week before the wedding.
Still, you can help by being patient, literally. Know that it will take time to get an appointment. Know that once you’re at the vaccination site, there will probably be a wait. Know that in the couple or three days afterward, you may not feel like your usual sparkly self. Knowing all of this, just settle back and be grateful that you will have vaccine armor in the battle against COVID-19 and, hopefully, a warm home with safe water for drinking, not flooding.
