My friend in Toronto (a retired psychiatric nurse, who is not taking the shot) has been telling me that, ever since January,  people she barely knows have been asking her “are you going to get the vaccine?” or “have you had your vaccine yet?”

I told her I considered myself fortunate that no one was asking me those kinds of things. But that all changed a couple weeks ago. I am now having people I barely know asking me “did you get your vaccine yet?”

Jeez. Since when did it become de rigeur to ask people about their personal medical decisions? I have been responding with a scornful “no, why would I?” But I am thinking instead that the following might be more a propos:

Man: Have you had your vaccine yet? Me: No. Have you had your annual prostate exam yet?
