I received my first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine, now called “Comirnaty” on December 22nd, 2020. I cannot tell you how amazing that felt, finally being able to have some level of protection from a respriatory virus which we saw first hand causing suffering and death both of patients and our colleagues. At the time, I tweeted:

“Incredibly fortunate and grateful to be in the first wave to receive the vaccine at our hospital. Time to put those ribosomes to work! The finish line is in sight. Let’s do this.”
