I am always on the lookout for a column topic, and last week, as I was driving to CVS for my second shot of the Moderna vaccine, I had a brilliant flash: record the experience of the vaccination and its side-effects like a sort of Hunter S. Thompson, only with legal drugs. Think of it as gonzo vaccination journalism. Pulitzer, here I come.
The journey actually began back in March. Shortly after our age group vaccinations opened up, my wife and I logged on and tried to get appointments somewhere near us. After a couple of days of searching, my wife finally found openings in New Britain, and she signed us up.
