FOWC with Fandango: Superior

Let’s be honest, there is a new wave of feeling better than the others, even a little superior.

“I had my Covid jab today. Didn’t hurt at all, and no ill effects afterwards.

“My arm hurt, and I felt a little drowsy, but after a day it all disappeared. Have you had your second jab?”

“Not yet, but I have an appointment for in three weeks. What about you?

“Same here, and you?

“Not yet, but I am on the list.”

And so the person on the list was really feeling a little inferior to the other two who already had their protection from the virus.

Is it becoming a status symbol. Are the jabbed few superior to those that have not yet been jabbed? Of course not, it is a luck of the draw and having enough underlying complaints, or being one of the chosen golden oldies.

I feel very inferior, unimportant. The Swiss have forgotten me and all those that I know. On the other unjabbed arm I supposed I can be glad that I do not have the hairy pea infection. Perhaps I am imune. No good feeling superior about it, you go when you have to go (I mean the jab of course, what were you thinking).

  1. Are you saying you got the jab or you’re on the list for it? I’m happy for anyone who manages to get vaccinated. It seems to be taking a very long time, but we are way way behind because of a certain orange stain.

  2. What list? All I’ve heard is “Everyone who wants one will get one by the end of June.”, maybe/probably/we hope/ dunno!/…
    They don’t even know who had it. or who gave it. Statistically numb!
    Meanwhile, I play it safe and wait………….

    • We just don’t have enough vaccine for everyone. At first the seniors in homes were vaccinated. And afterwards other golden oldies. It is now 75+ and those with underlying health problems. I registered online and now silence. I managed to call and was told that we don’t have enough to jab, so am still waiting and avoiding contact with others. It seems to be becoming a sort of status symbol

      • I don’t know what to believe. I’m not registered and haven’t heard or seen anything about that. I heard that Phizer is now ready to send our next order by the end of March, (delayed by 2 weeks at least) So much for the second jab for some.
        I also saw that individual people and organizations are buying it. So money definitely talks. I’ll be 70 this year. I guess I’m fairly healthy. You know what it’s like at our age.
        I go out once every two weeks to a small local store to buy canned goods and paper etc. Not much.
        I just stay put. It’s funny because I talk outloud sometimes to be sure my voice is still working LOL!! Keep smiling!! ~sigh~

        • I don’t know where you are in the world, but I am in Switzerland. Our vaccines are also delayed. I could register on line with the Swiss authorities. I am 74 years old, have MS and diabetes so have a letter from my neurologist, so have a little priority. As you say, money talks.

          I also manage a visit to the store about once a month, mainly for frozen goods, Every thing else I order online twice a week which is very well organised here with prompt delivery and no extra cost, but I too am now more isolated. During the Winter it was almost impossible to go anywhere due to the snow and cold temperatures. I depend on my scooter or wheelchair combined with help from my Walker. I no longer have a car and my husband is a few years older than I am and even less mobile. I can still hobble around at home. The problems with the pandemic are not helping.

          I know what you mean with talking outloud. I tend to listen to music with my EarPod. It helps and I don’t disturb anyone. My other half has his nose in a book most of the time. Being a golden oldie is really not fun.

          • I live in Canada in an apartment. I’ve never driven a car and so I walk or bus if I want to go anywhere. With the pandemic I don’t want to go far. I’ve always been a kind of loner by choice but having no choice is getting to me. Even if I want to get up and go I think more than twice about it. I have a nice balcony with sparrows as company.
            I could take a short walk but now with the winter and tons of snow it’s iffy. At least I have my balcony for fresh air and sun. I’ve never felt like a “Golden Oldie” until the pandemic limiting possibilities. I feel like I’ve aged a lot in a year. WP friends seem to always be out there. 🙂💜
            Take good care and stay safe.
