Got my first jab today. Took a total of 1 hr at Max Hospital, I went early and that turned out to be a wise decision because once the crowd came pouring in social distancing went for a toss.

 

I got the jab around 9 AM, the side effects are - extremely sleepy and tired ('brain fog'), feels like I smoked up and had a couple of beers. No complaints but I don't think I'll be able to work today and have informed my boss, again no complaints. Going to have lunch and crash till evening.

The side effects are immediate? Will I be able to drive back home?

Getting a slot is a sick joke really.

I was able to book a slot for me and wifey 20kms from my house.

My brother who lives 30 kms away got a slot for him at the same center as me though there is a vaccination center 5 mins from his place. On Sunday. (I'll be meeting him after about 6 months I think?)

His wife got a slot at the center opposite my house on Saturday :wallbash:

And my elder sister has got a slot 45kms away on Monday. She lives 3 buildings down from me.

I know my earlier post sounds stupid and privileged. And it is. However while I sat there for one hour cursing how stupid this is I was also thinking how f**king lucky I was to have the time on a Friday, to sit for an hour searching for a slot, when I know a few who even if they managed to book a slot at a similar distance like me, would have a hell of a time getting there and back. Also because they don't have their own vehicle, public transport is sporadic and not direct, taxis are f**king expensive. I should be thankful really.

Taxis in Goa are a scam.

Yeah f**k. When I first moved here, after getting ripped off, I hopped on OLX and bought a used Activa (2007 model). Travelled the whole of Goa on that old rattly, rusty but crazily reliable thing.

Damn union doesn't even let GoaMiles do its thing. Buying a vehicle is the only sensible thing to do. No wonder renting vehicles is so popular with thr tourists.

Last off topic. Dude these taxi f**kers are crazy. I had to send a taxi to pick up one of my business acquaintances from a big hotel. When the driver reached there he asked me to have the visitor walk out of the hotel till the main road some 1km away because the taxis parked outside the hotel threatened to damage his taxi. They also used to slash tires of hired cars or private cars parked outside hotels/venues.

It's like this for everyone . Slots run out so fast that you don't have time to pick n choose center.

I have been trying since 2/3 days and finally got a slot booked today .

Yeah true not only to have the time but also to get a slot when so many can't get slots.
