TOPIC: I'm immune!!!
#204549
I'm immune!!! 1 Week, 1 Day ago  
I’m immune! Well, I’ve had the vaccine (Pfizer).
Nervous about visiting Covid Central (hospitals).
Would I catch it before I was immune?

I went to the St Charles hospital for my appointment.
A strange place; outside, old and crumbling but inside clean and modern.
Well organised.
Hundreds of people there.
But very efficient and pleasant people; many very young.

For some reason, my shoes caused much merriness. They are multi coloured trainers; yellow, blue and red, self designed with Nike. I call them my clown shoes. Wherever I am in the world they seem to put a smile on peoples’ faces.

Likewise, the fact that I speak to anyone and everyone. I’m not one of those who stand silent in a queue. Very annoying you may think but it does tend to bring people to life. Smiles, conversation, responses. Boot faced receptionists suddenly discover life is not just tapping on a keyboard; sometimes it also involves jokes, facts, questions, giggles.

As I sat for my injection, the Chinese girl (could have been Japanese) asked me if I was pregnant, amongst other questions. It was the only one I had to think about. After my appalling behaviour (and much laughter after I insisted her demand for my bare arm clearly indicated she fancied me, as did the young man who pressed a time sticker on my knee) she told me they wouldn’t have been surprised if I WAS pregnant. I hardly noticed the prick.

Everyone was very busy, very nice.

Waited for the obligatory 20 minutes afterwards, to make sure I wasn’t going to croak - that was the reason for the sticker. Almost everyone else there was very old indeed, or looked it.
I think I only warranted inclusion because I’m now 76 and diabetic.

Much hilarity amongst patients and staff at my gay badinage throughout.
It was a bit like watering flowers, watching the drooping, quiet individuals blossom into bloom.

As I left the lady who had taken my temperature (“You’re normal”… “nobody has ever said that to me before”) asked me to remove my mask and said “Are you who I think you are?”.

“Possibly, yes”, I replied.

“I’ve always loved your work and over the past years have admired you even more”.

Very sweet but she probably thought I was Paul Gambaccini.

Hooray! But remember, it takes a while to work, and maybe not at all after three weeks, so don't go licking park railings just yet!
(This is the reason my council gave for closing the playgrounds. Really! )

I am trying to work out if the last line is a double entendre!?

But well done; must be a relief and you are one jabbed old geezer nearer freedom for me!

I shall do as I've always done GM - use common sense. That was why I bought a strong, reusable mask in February (only 1-2% protection but why not?) as I'm 76 and diabetic. Wear it in crowds so as not to pass anything on, if I get it. Stay away from anyone if I get cold or flu symptoms. Especially the elderly.

I see Her Majesty and Phil, regular readers of this Forum, have followed my example and taken the Pfizer vaccine. Sensible couple (I'm a fan).

I'm probably due for the jab in the Spring - however I take it as long as face coverings are no longer mandatory.

I rather have the cold or flu than be trapped indoors.

I really hope Her Majesty and/or Phil don't die in the next 3-4 weeks; will put the vaccine movement back months and more importantly keep me indoors longer...

Think I am due mine Spring 22...

I've heard it is annual for you JK; so there is always next year. Keep focused...
