I got my child vaccinated today. He is 6. It’s what his school and pediatrician recommended. We live in downtown NYC, we were here when it hit, and it was hardcore. I had doubts about the 5-11 vax, read the data, had theories in my head, but decided to do it, so I’m at the clean, calm site, hugging my boy as the needle goes in. After, we got ice cream and the street vendor saw his vaccination sticker and said, “Welcome to the club, kid.” I love you, New York. This is for him, and for you.

Should it just be something to hold off completely until I close or apply anyway and confirm a start date after closing (if something came along) ?
