I got my first dose of the yesterday.

I got it at a CVS.

If any of you are trying to get an appointment and having trouble, you can try cvs.com.

I don't know if it will always be the case, but right now everyone who goes there is getting Moderna.

Also, here are a couple tips for navigating their site:

When you get to the point where it shows a bunch of cities, you must click in to see more options.

Do not abandon the search if all the cities seem too far away.

It's at that point that you need to click in, and it will open up more options for all the cities that have openings.

And just like other sites doing this, refreshing often will help when it seems like appointments are being added but you keep missing out on them.

They do get scooped up quickly when they drop in, and you can see that happening in real time.

This can be an uncomfortable or difficult conversation for some. It is, however, incredibly important and incredibly necessary.

I recently had my first colonoscopy. They removed polyps which I just learned were benign. (Phew)

What I wanted to share was information relayed by my doctor in his letter about the results.

"The type of polyp removed is referred to as 'adenoma.' This type of polyp, when not removed can grow larger over many years and has the potential to turn into a colon cancer."

Due to that sentence, I felt the need to do a .

I'm trying to get my head around people who think students should study the Holocaust, but only if it's told in a nice way.

There is nothing inherently sexual about nudity. Jewish people in concentration camps were made to stand naked as part of their dehumanization. And also as a form of torture since it was often brutally cold. As for swear words - they have a time and a place. The Holocaust is not an event that called for lots of darn its.

Learning about reality isn't damaging to kids. Not learning about reality is damaging to all of society.

Officer Eugene Goodman gave his first public interview since January 6th. He's a modest pubic servent who talks about fame, doing his job and hot sauce ❤️. He starts at about 11min.

@TonyStark

it is very important that it is told again and again. especially on today's day of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Thank you, Kranfahrer.

It is quite upsetting to me that anyone would want to erase it.

Ich hoffe es geht dir gut.

I think this is a pretty good all things considered. Not one of his better-known classics, this was released in 2017 during TFG's presidency.

Affordable healthcare is essential for all Americans. President Biden knows this and has worked to expand access. There were nearly 2.4M NEW signups this year alone.

'It had been a central campaign goal but assumed greater significance as the coronavirus pandemic cost millions of people their jobs and health benefits — and as the virus laid bare the importance of being able to get appropriate care when sick.'

'Looking at the pandemic through the lens of saving lives is a case for not giving up. We may not be able to prevent every death, every new mutation, or every future pandemic. But we have far more agency than we may realize, and with a more thoughtful public health strategy, many more lives can be saved.'

People often wonder why voters vote against their own best interests...

"Corporate lobbying groups that oppose the plan over its tax provisions have hit the airwaves with ads warning that it would worsen inflation. Economists have largely predicted that the Build Back Better Act would have minor and brief inflationary impacts but wouldn’t make a big difference on already soaring prices."

@SpiderMan That child on the left will be able to vote when Youngkin can run for his non-consecutive term. She won't be voting for him. She'll remember what he did to a state that was functioning pretty well under Northam.
