Please, governor, could I have a dose of vaccine, too? | READER COMMENTARY

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan gets a bandage placed on his arm by a member of the Maryland National Guard after receiving the first dose of the Moderna coronavirus vaccine at the State House in Annapolis on Monday, Jan. 18, 2021. "I really did not even feel the needle go in," he said later. (Pamela Wood/Baltimore Sun).

I am 88 years old and have not driven far in the past year from my home in Baltimore. I would find an Uber driver to take me to Annapolis, however, if the technician who gave Gov. Larry Hogan his COVID-19 vaccination would administer mine (”‘I really didn’t feel that at all’: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan gets coronavirus vaccine,” Jan. 18).

Since I am still without an appointment, I think I am entitled to a shot that is so smooth, I won’t feel a thing. My cousin in Georgia is 73 and received her first shot 10 days ago. And my 90-year-old friend in Sarasota, Florida, received both her shots on Dec. 30 and Jan. 16.

Since I have waited so long, I want to brag about having received the vaccine, if not in the Governor’s Mansion, then at least from the governor’s technician.
