The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine hasn’t been without its snags and delays, but we’re happy to report one successful injection in particular: Judy Blume’s.
The author, who turns 83 next month, tweeted bright and early Monday morning to announce that she and her husband had received their first dose of the vaccine.
Husb and I got our first dose of Moderna Vaccine on Friday in Key West. At last, something good about being 80+ and a 2 year Pan Can survivor (husb). No problems. Less of a sore arm than with flu shot.— Judy Blume (@judyblume) January 11, 2021
Blume’s books for kids (such as the Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing series), teens (like Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret; Tiger Eyes; and Deenie), and adults (including Summer Sisters and In the Unlikely Event) have sold over 85 million copies in over thirty languages.
