Mission Accomplished. Second Vaccine Dose in Arm

As an old person, I was in Group 1b for vaccine distribution.  Almost 3 weeks ago I received Dose 1 and today I received Dose 2.  It feels good to have this behind me, and my husband will receive his second dose at the end of the week.   Read Below.

I hope that everyone will get vaccinated.  It was almost a year ago that I was learning about how vaccines could be made isolating the coronavirus spike protein genetic code, coat it with lipids, and inject it as a vaccine.  When my cells use the code to make the spike protein, my immune system will recognize it as a foreign protein and produce an immune response.  I will go to bed tonight wondering how fast the spike protein will be made in my sore muscle.  What an amazing scientific accomplishment.
