After a year of anxiously waiting for the COVID-19 pandemic to end, the vaccine rollouts in late 2020 sent cheer in an otherwise forgettable year. As vaccination drives have begun for the public across the world in 2021, it offers a glimmer of hope in controlling the pandemic. However, vaccination for all is still a distant dream as parts of the world are witnessing another wave of the pandemic, which means there will still be many months of masking up and social distancing ahead. Twitter users who have been patiently waiting for their turn to get vaxxed are sharing memes to express what it feels like to watch people across the world get the potentially life-saving jab.

The chances of getting a blood clot from the AstraZeneca jag are 1 in 250,000. You have more chance of getting an outside table at Ashton Lane this summer.

People will be like “I’m not getting the vaccine, who knows what’s in it” and then eat hot dogs

After a year of being like “it sucks going nowhere but at least no one else is doing anything either” we just have to get through the final boss of watching a bunch of people get vaccinated before you

The bittersweet agony of watching other people rejoice when their parents and elders get vaccinated and being happy for them, while at the same time your own family are refusing bc of some dumb shit they read online. Le sigh.
