This not-so likeable person was a senior nurse at a public hospital in my town. I needed to visit this nurse because I needed to get an oral vaccine for my little cousin from that public hospital. But, as I visited him, he told me in a very harsh and authoritative tone that I missed the scheduled vaccinati…
