Go to First Night, get a free shot

The Whittier Street Health Center will run a mobile Covid-19 vaccination clinic in Copley Square tomorrow, near the Bostix booth, between noon and 7 p.m. for everybody 5 and up. Then the Boston Public Health Commission will take over and provide shots for everybody 12 and up between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. at the same location.

While in theory I like the idea of providing vaccinations wherever you can, it seems like this is going to make a potentially already crowded event even more crowded? I can imagine people on a long line to get a shot interfering with people browsing the ice sculptures and trying to see the various performers.

Why? There are so many other places to get vaccinated -- anyone who seeks it out will have many other places they can find it. This is just to provide another opportunity for people who haven't gotten the shot and happen to be at the venue -- it's not going to become a reason why people go to the event.

Nothing in this announcement was about optometrists or ophthalmologists.

I'm very disappointed. :( I think we should call vaccinations "Jabs" instead of "Shots" especially on a traditional drinking holiday.

on a traditional punching holiday, and went expecting a free jab?

I might get so mad I'd start throwing fists!
