On Friday morning, I took the fifth: another Covid booster shot.
Our friendly neighborhood Tuxedo Pharmacy was busy with people getting the latest version of the vaccine, this one re-engineered to ward off the raging Omicron variant, or whatever it is these days.
Hedging my bets, I also received a flu shot. Guess I'm good for the winter.
I received my first covid shot on a cold January night in 2021, at the Piedmont office building in Vinings.
Like a horror film monster, Covid has kept coming back since then. '
The flu has never gone away, and covid probably won't either. I'll keep taking shots until something else sweeps me away from this mortal coil.
Driving home, listening to J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers' "Last Kiss" on satellite radio, I felt good that I'd kept covid at bay once again, until the next variant comes along.
