Almost exactly a year ago, our company announced that it would be going remote for two weeks (excepts for on-air talent who has to be in the building) because of COVID-19. At the time, I had no idea how bad the virus really was, or what our next year would really look like.
A year later, and the world is still not fully open yet, but as more vaccines come out, the curve is finally going down and there is a glimmer of hope.
Required media staff was just moved into Phase 3 of the vaccination schedule, so I was able to get vaccinated this week at the Atrium Health vaccination clinic at Bank of America Stadium.
There were lots of people there, but whoever organized it should be in charge of all crowds because it moved so quickly and efficiently. I waited less than 20 minutes to actually get my shot, then waited in the Panthers Stadium for 15 minutes to make sure I didn’t have a reaction.
All in all, the experience was great, and I feel very lucky to have gotten my first shot. My arm is a little sore at times, but not bad AT ALL, and it feels great knowing in a few weeks, I will be more protected from this scary virus.
