I have an internet friend on another forum board who lost his 47-year old son to a heart attack two weeks ago, then his wife to COVID just a few days ago. Needless to say, it's going to be a rough Christmas for him. He says they were both vaccinated.
On a more upbeat note, my 7-year old grandson was the first kid to get the vaccine at our local clinic. He took the needle like a champ, and all the doctors and nurses gave him a standing ovation. He was pretty proud of himself. His brother turns 5 in April and will get a shot for his birthday.
(Got my 2nd shingles shot today. So I am fully up on all my shots now.)
