After 84 Days


Eighty-four days before on Tuesday Dec 15, first dose of COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer was received by Thera Witte, a nurse at the Minneapolis VA for 10 years. Since then more than 1.1 million Minnesotans have received at least one-dose of Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which includes nearly 70% of seniors 65-yr and older.

Finally, my turn arrived too and I received my first dose of Pfizer vaccine at the Regions Hospital in St Paul. As of today, half of our family members have received both doses (via work) and other half to-day. We all are grateful for the tireless work of vaccine manufacturers, federal and state officials making these life-saving vaccine available to us.
