Tuesday/ the third shot

It’s been six months since I had my second shot, and so today it was time for the third one*. The pharmacist put a Spiderman band-aid on my arm afterwards. They must be gearing up for the influx of 5-11 year-olds that will come in for their shots from tomorrow.

*Pfizer’s booster shot is the same dosage strength as their primary series. Moderna’s booster dose is half the strength of its primary shots.

Big Pharma: “The third dose is recommended for people with certain preconditions”
African person: “Which preconditions?” (Sign says ‘Africa needs vaccines’)
Big Pharma: “Wealth”
