I got the first of two in the CoVD series of shots at the fairground today.

I actually was not looking forward to waiting in line for hours in the rain. I was very pleasantly surprised to be able to just walk into the building as I arrived. No long wait outside in the rain. That was the first of a series of pleasant surprises.

Everybody appeared to me to be quite knowledgeable about their particular job. Checking in went smoothly and in under ten minutes I was done and escorted to the waiting area to make sure I didn’t have any untoward sequelae from the shot. I possibly could have been done quicker than ten minutes but for some reason these days I am moving a tad slower than formerly. Could it possible because I am now qualified for early inoculation due to my age bracket?

The whole scenario was very well organized. The staff were all pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable. I would say it was on the whole a pleasant experience except for the shot. I am having a little more soreness than I usually get from a flu shot or tetanus shot.

I say kudos to whoever with the County Health Department organized the event at the fair ground. Well done. The signage is easy to read so it starts off in the right direction from the get go. Parking is adequate. Everyone on the staff was pleasantly friendly and helpful and knew their job.

Thank you everybody, for making an otherwise somewhat unpleasant chore as pleasant and efficient as possible. If every government function went as smoothly as the County inoculations at the fairgrounds we would be living in Utopia.
