You just never know what a Monday morning will bring and today it was a bit of a ray of sunshine for me.  I was reading at WMTW.com that Gov. Mills is changing up the timeline when Mainers, based on age, can receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

The Biden Administration last week said more vaccine is on the way and caused Maine to change it up. Currently we at a point where Mainers 60 and older can sign up for the vaccine.  As of April 1, Mainers 50 and over will able to sign up and receive the vaccine.  Then May 1 things are due to open to ALL Mainers of all ages.

I have been on the fence all this time about the vaccine. I really do want to make sure a friend of mine who is in his 50’s and has some health issues gets his shot. My mom is vaccinated and my aunt is halfway through the process. So, again, I ask myself since I will be eligible on April 1st...will I get the vaccine? Probably.
