Vaccination time!

Joyce Sanders, Castlemaine

Hooray!!! I got my coronavirus vaccination on Tuesday morning at 7.45am at the old Windarring/Chambers building in Lyttleton Street. When they rang me Monday afternoon to tell me I could come in to get it, I have to admit to shedding some tears of joy, and took the staff some flowers when I went Tuesday morning.
For someone in their 70s with all three of the three underlying health issues, it is like someone ringing up to say “I’m going to save your life.” It’s hard not to be extremely grateful about that!
In the building, it looked like everyone in Castlemaine was there, so it was quite friendly, with lots of jokes and banter. The clinic was going to try to vaccinate around 100 on the day.
