Vaccine

Did you ever notice a circular scar on someone’s arm or leg? 

When I was young such scars were visible and 
common due to the mid 20th century need for smallpox vaccinations.

To my knowledge such scars are not caused by a coronavirus vaccination. 

I am one of the people who seeks to be vaccinated. I just got on a vaccination list and can’t wait for my turn to come up.  

Even if my vaccination causes a small scar it is a very small price to pay on the road to herd immunity!

 

P.S. Until then, please wear a mask!

    I can still see my smallpox scar - they used scratch it in I believe - that’s why it wasn’t a perfect circle. I think you had a to get a booster every so often as well. You needed a vaccination certificate to get back into the US from another country. I Remember once mine had expired - and I had to get one in England. It was 1970 - I was so impressed.... it was free:)

    We sacrificed too much for too long, let’s not let our guard down and let our sacrifices go to waste... protect your fellow neighbors, wear a mask, and be safe.

    I have one on my shoulder. Growing up we all did. I am so grateful there is a vaccine and can’t wait for greater access. I just read that there is an indication that it will be good for potentially over a year or two. my mom and dad are in Florida and vaccines are now available in their local Publix supermarkets!

    I remember the smallpox marks - perhaps a small reminder of what we must do to protect ourselves and those around us.

    Looking forward to everyone being vaccinated —-until then (and after) please please wear a mask. I’m not sure why I don’t have a smallpox scar (my sister does) but there’s really no one alive for me to ask. Definitely go investigate

    I'm with you! The only way we can protect each other is to protect ourselves. The only way we can start rebuilding the economy is if we stop the spread of the virus. Prevention is the only way to do that. I had the smallpox vaccine but no scar.

    Bring on the SHOT. But, vigilance is a must. Distancing and masking must continue.

    Mine seems to have disappeared years ago.

    I remember being jealous, as a child, of a friend who had one. I thought it was pretty. My husband received his first injection. He is proudly showing off his arm!!!!

    I do remember the scar and seeing it on my mom when she was alive. Mine did go away, maybe they were different from one generation to the next. My wife (from Guyana), has hers still visible. Mask wearing is the new norm, at least in NY. I bet it hangs around awhile even after most get vaccinated. My recent trip over the holidays to Merritt Island, Florida proved mask wearing had lighter compliance once again in many public places, sad to say.
