This morning I registered my father for his first vaccine dose. We are lucky to live in a public health jurisdiction that has an online system for booking. I know other jurisdictions in this province require phoning in, which I think is less convenient.
I was able to get him an appointment next Monday around noon. The location closest to him had about 100 remaining appointment slots and I chose one that was pretty much close to the earliest available. Waiting less than a week is acceptable in my mind. The location we’re going to is a drive-through one but the instructions also say leave time to park, so I’ll have to figure out if we’re staying in the car or having to actually to a tent or something.
I’ll be taking the day off to drive him as Mom doesn’t drive anymore. He could probably drive their himself but it’s probably safer if he has someone else drive him home afterwards. Exciting times indeed!
