The nurse wrote down 5 questions

Post by Whiti

Kia Ora my name is Whiti, gives his name sign.

I want to talk about my corona virus vaccination.

Most of the people wore masks and that lead to a communication breakdown.

When I parked, the guy approached me talking so I signed that I was Deaf.

He seemed to understand me and phoned through and told the office that I was Deaf.

When I went in the nurse asked me questions about my health and safety and said some other words. She wrote down five questions which I read, one, two, three, four, five, but I had no idea what these meant. I just grinned and nodded as if I understood.

Then I went straight off and had my vaccination.

I wondered where the interpreter was, there really should have been one there.
