You might have taken a selfie when you got your COVID-19 vaccine, but would you write a poem to mark the occasion? David Hassler is co-leader of the Global Vaccine Poem, which asks people to reflect on the pandemic and receiving their shot, and put those feelings into a few lines of verse. We also hear from Laura Wood in Owen Sound, Ont., who is among more than 1,400 people who have contributed to the global poetry initiative.
