No, Seriously, Get Vaccinated

Comic page with 1 medium panel, 3 small panels, and another medium panel. First panel shows lucy sitting in a chair and wearing a mask. Someone also in a mask stands next to her and is administering a vaccine in Lucy's arm. 3 small panels. 1/3. Lucy leaves the vaccination clinic with a bandaid on her arm. 2/3. Lucy encounters some coronavirus cells and stops. Her bandaid begins to glow. 3/3. Lucy looks extra tough. Spikes sprout on her back and a tail pokes out from her dress. The bandaid is glowing a lot now. Final medium panel. Lucy stomps a coronavirus cell with the huge dinosaur feet she has grown. The lighting goes red.
Full page comic. A Lucy-dinosaur mutant hybrid rampages through coronavirus cells. She stomps them and crushes them in her fists. She shoots down airborne virus cells with laser eyes. Her bandaid glow is at its most intense.
Comic page with 3 small panels and one large panel. 3 small panels. 1/3. Lucy walks away, still with dinosaur legs, a tail, spikes and a glowing bandaid. 2/3 Now she only has small spikes. The glow has reduced. The lighting is no longer red. 3/3 Lucy is normal. She takes off her mask as she walks in a door. Large panel: Lucy says 'You're one person safer' as she takes her smiling baby from her partner. An arrow labelled 'vaccinated' points to lucy. An arrow labelled 'also vaccinated' points to her partner. An arrow labelled 'to young to be vaccinated' points to their baby.

Those vaccine side-effects, am I right?

But seriously, I have now had my second Pfizer vaccination, and all I got was a sore arm. It was fine. If you can, please, please, please get vaccinated. Help me protect my baby.

Remember, if you love my stories and comics, check out my Patreon page. You can support my work and get unique rewards! Along with the usual merch you can now get facemasks in my store. Specifically here. (And actually with the whole new-baby situation, this would be a particularly excellent time to do any of those things if you’ve been considering them).

Also, I adapted some of the other vaccinated illustrations for my store! You can get the steamroller or the triceratops on both stickers and shirts! I even did an extra couple of illustrations so there would be versions with different figures (i.e., not just cartoon-me). Click to see the steamroller version with long hair and short hair, or the triceratops versions with long hair and short hair.

And don’t forget you can follow me for updates on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

Get Vaccinated

2 panels. Unvaccinated: a lone person looking out the window of a home. They are sad. Vaccinated: I sit in the window of a bustling cafe while drinking coffee. Everyone is happy.
2 panels. Unvaccinated: a person-shaped covid virus monster punches a person in the face. Drops of blood and a tooth are knocked out their mouth. Vaccinated: I am in a steamroller rolling over a person-shaped covid-virus monster thing while I laugh like a supervillain.
2 panels. Unvaccinated: person with virus-y body and virus-hair is sucked into a swirling covid-virus vortex. Vaccinated: I ride a triceratops through space. Rainbows stream out behind us. I am delighted.

I got my first covid vaccination shot! I still have about a month of waiting for shot number two and full immunity to kick in, but I am PSYCHED. I do not want covid with my medical history, and I REALLY do not want to catch it and pass it onto my 6 week old baby. I know access to vaccinations is very different around the world. It feels like it’s moving so slowly in Australia (where I live), but that’s probably just because we get so much news from the US and the UK. If you have access and are medically able to, please get vaccinated. For everyone’s sake.
