Who gets the vaccine? After the fifth–or maybe the fiftieth time–I’d been asked whether I was going to get the vaccine for covid and I had no ready answer, figuring rightly that I had some time to decide (I had no idea then that I had as much time as I DO have), I looked up the availability of it in Nevada and who is allowed to get it. (I figured I might as well submit to the inevitable and get the Mark of the Beast. Why fight it?)
When I researched who will be allowed, I saw an ad, “Do you qualify for lower insurance rates?” It certainly fits.
Two old friends had called me yesterday and in the course of the conversation they asked if I was getting vaccinated. I gave my standard answer that I wasn’t sure and was going to wait to see if they grew a third eye or their tongue turned black. Now that I’ve warned them, they probably won’t tell me what happens. They’ll want me to be a three-eyed, black tongued, healthy member of society just like them.
After we hung up, I looked up the age for who was getting the vaccine in Nevada. The state is going in phases, or tiers, or orchestra seats, not just ages, from what I could ascertain.
The first phase for vaccinations seems to be vaccinating teachers. They are pretending–in Oscar winning performances–to want to get back to work not teaching our kids anything useful. I suspect they just want to get away from their own kids after a year of cozy togetherness. Some were crying after getting their shot, the article told me. Crying for joy. Who are they trying to kid?
Funnily enough, Fauci waited until AFTER January 20th to tell teachers to go back to school. Everything really IS academic.
Well, thought I, after the teachers will come the 65 year olds and older, right?
No, no, the article told me. After the teachers (who won’t get sick now, but we can’t guarantee the health of your kids), will be medical personnel.
This makes sense as they have to be around sick people all the time. So the state will be vaccinating doctors, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, human resources, billing specialists, and the information lady who sits inside the lobby of the hospital.
Alright. Then it will be MY turn, right?
No, no. We will then be vaccinating law enforcement, prison guards, prisoners over the age of 10, the prison librarian, the cafeteria workers, the prison bus drivers, the landscapers, and the meter maids.
Sigh. Okay, but what about after the entire prison system and Metro police department?
Let me check the list. Okay, see here? We have to vaccinate military personnel after law enforcement. They’re keeping us safe from invasion, you know. Well, except for the southern border. We have to do our best for our boys and girls in khaki.
I suppose. But no one in their right mind is coming over here anyway, not even by bus. So what say we keep them home for the time being? That way, they can’t bring any bugs back with them. Who’s on the list after the soldiers, officers, and all the people associated with them?
Then, we have to vaccinate other essential workers. Office personnel, retail workers, food servers, Uber drivers and public transportation workers, pizza delivery guys, and politicians.
Yes. You wouldn’t want them to sicken and die, would you?
Don’t ask me questions you don’t want answers to, okay?
Well. I never.
I’ll bet. So who comes after the “essential” workers, like….snort….senators?
Well, we will be vaccinating people 70 years old and older, including nursing home residents and all the workers who are employed in them, and in assisted living quarters. After we get done with that group, we’ll give you a call. If we don’t do the 16 to 64 year olds first. You’re 67, right?
Did you vote for Biden?
No. What difference does THAT make?
Oh…..none. None at all. Forget we even said anything. Just go home and wait for our call, alright?
Yeah, okay. By the way, I DID vote for him, I just forgot.
Riiiggght. We suggest looking up the penalty for lying to The Narrator of the Blog. Ignore anything that implies The Narrator doesn’t exist. He exists, alright. And he’s been vaccinated.
Edit: This came in as a comment, but I’m going to post it without the name in case there are Men in Black monitoring this.
