Kercado sports center and covid19!

Well something that is fashion nowdays is the problem of the covid19 or pandemic virus from the east. There is really no public information on the details of how this came about althought I know and many know where it started with little information coming from there. The rush has been to vaccinate the entire population which in France is around the 80%. However, already the media is bombarding our brains about the possibility of a third vaccine due to the variants (mutations) of the virus. We are now with the health pass or passe sanitaire to be able to travel , visit restaurants cinemas etc. And the beat goes on in the new world order.

The next thing they will make a science fiction movie of all this for future generations. In the meantime protect yourselves with the usual recommendations of wash hands, put on your mask ,and keep away one meter (except for sex I hope!) As we went thru the procedures, let me tell you ours.

I went online to the site of doctolib and got me appointments to the Kercado Sports Center in Vannes as there they use the pfizer vaccine. In my town of Pluvigner they were using the Aztra-Zeneca but I refuse to take that one, my choice. The appointments were easy, you are alerted by email and sms of your date and time, you go there with the appointment info, your health insurance card (carte vitale), the citizen identification or carte d’identité and go thru the line according to your time. Very quickly in, to a desk to present your identification information, then filled out a simple one page form not having any problems or , and then to a big hall (basketball court) where you are seated to await your call for the vaccine. The vaccine is done effortless and painless ,and afterward you to a seated area where you wait the 15 minutes in case of side effects, you are call and given your proof of vaccination which is good for all. That’s it folks very easy simple and free!
