I got my first shot of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine in Waterbury this morning. I took photos all the way through my journey to show you what you're in for and to give you a couple of helpful tips should you choose to be vaccinated.

I booked the June appointment and I found that every day after that, more appointments opened up almost hourly and much closer to home.
