Chrissy’s COVID Vaccine Adventure [GALLERY]
I recently got my first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. It was a smooth and pretty painless process. Appointments opened up online and I qualified because I had a pre-existing condition. I have to admit that I was a bit nervous as I headed down to the Times Union Center unaware of what to expect. My appointment was at 4:05 but when I got there, I knew it would take much longer. There were hundreds of people inside. After waiting in a line that wound around the top of the atrium of the Times Union Center, I entered the arena. Bobbi who was a volunteer at my station took all of my information and made me feel at ease. I told Nurse Gina that I was a little nervous about getting the vaccine. She eased my mind and let me take a picture. I didn't even feel a thing. It took about an hour and a half from entering the building until the waiting fifteen minutes after I got the first dose. I was very pleased with how well run it was at the Times Union Center. That day alone they vaccinated 1600 people. I found out that aside from the nurses, the others working were volunteers.
