“I had been spending a great deal of my time trying to get an appointment for a vaccination and finally on Friday, late afternoon I got one. I woke up Saturday to all the snow and thought ‘uh oh’. I know that our driveway is inaccessible in the snow,” said Goldman.

Driving was out of the question, so she decided to spend Saturday doing a practice walk from her home in Seattle, along the Burke Gilman trail, to the hospital.

She went about two-thirds of the way and went home, confident that she’d get it done on Sunday. She says she arrived a little later than she expected, but made it there without any issues.

“I got my vaccination and then I was told I had to sit and wait 15 minutes to make sure there was no reaction and I said I’m delighted to sit,” said Goldman.
