I've recently been given my second Astra Zeneca shot. The vaccine is a bit controversial . It's only being given to under 40s now. It started off being administered only to the under 60's, then it was safe for the over 60's too and now that's changed again.. Those waiting for a second jab can have the pfizer vaccine if they so desire though the consequences of mixing the two are not known yet. But, hey ho, we're all guinea pigs anyway, whichever we get.
No side effects, no flu, no sore arm, no headache. Will I be dead in 10 years. Possibly but probably not from the covid vaccine. Did it change my DNA ? Who cares. I could be dead in 10 years anyway.
Has the vaccine made me magnetic? I 'm not yet attracting knives and forks or sticking to the car door.
Have I been injected with a microchip along with the vaccine. It would have to have been tinier than microscopic! If someone is tracking me they're going to have a lot of fun trotting after me from the kitchen to the garden and back again.
There's more but its tiring to even think about it. Temperatures have risen. We are in the middle of a heat wave. Viruses don't like heat and neither do I. I'm wilting and suffering in many other ways.
It was all a bit of a hassle. Now if we leave the island we have to have proof that we are fully vaccinated to get back again or produce a very recent negative test. K went and arranged with those in charge so I could get back home after my second shot without papers and tests. Now I've downloaded an official looking paper saying I'm fully covered,with dates and social security numbers, and my age. K and I had these papers turned into plastic covered ID cards. So now we have more official documents to carry about.
In my bag I have my vaccine paper, my official ID with photo and fingerprints, a Navy ID and an E1 which is a paper from the tax office to say I'm a permanent resident of Poros.
They've got us all hog tied and we are expected to be happy about the whole situation. We are free we say. Yeh.
We're still wearing masks outside the home but the cases of covid in Greece are so low that it looks like we'll be free of them, at least outside in open spaces, by the end of the week.
