Ottawa ON — Approaching the runway, pilot Gary Davis was sort of hoping for a hero’s welcome for delivering the first doses of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. Needless to say, when he landed and didn’t see a crowd, he was a little disappointed. He thought it was kind of a big deal that a new vaccine was coming for such a strapped nation but apparently it means nothing. Sure there is a stay-at-home order but to think that not one person was willing to ignore it and hold up a sign that read ‘Bring On The Johnson’s” was a little hurtful.
What made it a little more surprising was that nobody at all was there to collect the vaccines. “I guess I will give them a half-hour before I just leave,” he said to himself because not a single soul was there to hear it. “Such a valuable commodity, you would think they’d at least send someone to meet me here.”
As Gary stood by waiting, he made a few phone calls hoping to find someone that would want to collect them. He eventually saw a person walking around the property who told him that Justin Trudeau promised everyone that they would be vaccinated by September and that they were in no rush to get them. He took this advice and left a note saying that he was there and he left some vaccines by the hangar for whenever you’re ready to grab em.
