Being vaccinated is the bee's knees, my friends. It was an easy and quick process, and even though I felt pretty cruddy for 24 hours after each one, lots of other folks have no side effects at all. I had side effects mostly because I had COVID-19 back in November, so my response was a little harder to deal with. But I'd do it again for the awesome feeling of freedom and relief I have post-vaccination.

Now, the darling vectors, I mean students, at Texas Tech have an easy opportunity to get vaccinated on campus. As a Tech student myself, I'm allowed to call us vectors, because, let's be honest, it's almost impossible to keep a college student in one place for very long. And many of these kids will go home to other parts of the country for summer break, so it's important that they are protected and aren't spreading anything around.

Students and Lubbock residents over 18 can register for the campus clinic. This will be the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Here are the important dates, times, and scheduling information from United Supermarket's Press Release:

United Supermarkets will host a COVID–19 vaccination clinic in Lubbock, Texas, on Thursday, April 8, from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at United Supermarkets Arena, 1709 Indiana Ave., in the City Bank Room, for anyone 18 and older.

All Texas adults over the age of 18 are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and there is no charge to the patient for the vaccine. This clinic will include the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Clinics will continue at United Supermarkets Arena throughout the month of April on Thursdays .
