Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, I’m sure you have already been involved in some capacity with acquiring a COVID-19 vaccine, either for yourself or for someone you know. With my mother and my father-in-law in their 80s, my wife and I have been worried for them since the start of this pandemic.
