Dear Trudy Technology, 

This question may be outside of your purview, but I’ve found your advice very helpful in the past, so I figured, why not ask? I want to get vaccinated for COVID-19, but I am too embarrassed to ask anyone I know for help finding somewhere to get one. This is because, up until recently, I have been pretty vocal about my distrust for it. I’ve since learned more and changed my mind, but I don’t know where to start. Are there any online resources you can recommend? 


Please Help in Penn Cove 


Dear Please, 

Congratulations on taking the time to learn more! I can absolutely help!
