So, I am doing my part to help end this pandemic. This last weekend I was one of about 5,000 healthcare workers to get vaccinated. In San Diego county private practice therapists were considered essential workers in this first round of vaccines.
I am feeling lucky and guilty and relieved and impatient and all the things. I miss people, seeing actual people and not just people on a screen. I miss the human connections I have made in my office. I miss going out to dinner.
I know how truly fortunate I am and hope that if you are physically able to do so, please get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Each state and county has their own plan on how they are rolling out the vaccinations. If you want more information there is a good overview available through the CDC by selecting your state, then they also have a link to select your county.
