Vaccine Incentives


#GetTheVaccine … “People who are getting the vaccine know that reaching herd immunity will open the nation faster. It will get us back to normal, or at least something close to it. We’re not doing it just for ourselves. People refusing to do so are being selfish.”

A little over 30 percent of the population of the United States has been vaccinated. According to the Center for Disease Control, 105,523,520 of us had been vaccinated by 6:00 AM, May 3. Since I got my second vaccination yesterday, we are at least at 105,523,521.

I was surprised to see that a year ago, I was monitoring the nesting of yet another Canada Goose. And this year, I’m at it again. Same one? Who knows?  On the drive to the park this morning (and every morning since gestation started), I’m unsettled, uneasy — until I pull up, and verify that everything is as it should be.
