      Forgive my snobbery, but don’t you just love living in New York? We get to be vaccinated under a gigantic blue whale inside a world-class museum and people in places like Mississippi and Alabama have to line up in Wal-Mart parking lots. No wonder their rates are so low!

      (Yeah, it’s cocktail hour on the UWS)

        @ Paul on W. 67 Funny you should mention AL and MS. According to the CDC, MS ranks 47th in vaccination rates at 21.28% and AL dead last at 19.3%. NY is 12th at 29.02%.

        Yeah, I love living in New York!.

      “Whatever it takes”
      There once was a whale in a Museum,
      whose city had decided to house a series of multiple vaccines
      a 6ft Band-aid was hoisted atop the Blue Mammal, this quirky gesture reminiscent of Banksy, though not, symbolic of Immunity plus Free Krispy creme Donuts!
      The people were beckoned upstream to get their shot, and bonus can also look at some Art!

        Krispy creme Donuts for free?!
        Is that where NYC tax payer’s money goes?
        Shake Shack Burger for free would be even more patriotic to NYC.
        And protein is better than sugar to our diet.
