I got vaccinated today. I went to Utrecht Jaarbeurs, one of the largest locations to get vaccinated in the country. It’s used for big expo’s and conferences, so all in all I walked about 1,5 kilometres from the parking lot to the needle, via the waiting room (the mandatory 15 minutes) and back. I never had to wait in line, though. My pink dot meant I was selected to receive Moderna.

Getting my first shot really feels like progress. Many others get their vaccines as well and new cases have plummeted the past few weeks. More things are allowed again and though I’m still cautious (last week three classes in Daughter’s school had to quarantine) I arranged a visit to the Nijntje (Miffy) museum (also in Utrecht) for the three of us to celebrate this small yet significant step.

So we had our own small vaccination party today. It was a wonderful day.
