    Jabs in Arms
    Frank Baudino, MD, MA (Physics) | Salud Para La Gente, Watsonville, CA
    Thank you Dr. Kronmal for your service and for your essay. I'm a 74 year old physician who still sees patients as a volunteer at a rural health clinic.

    We live in historic times: two years ago, who would have guessed the magnitude of the plague that is now upon us?

    And yes, I too stepped up to give jabs in arms. "¿Cual lado?" I would say: "Which side?" Some of the sweet older people would cross themselves just before the shot. "Es todo," "you're done!"
