This Covid Life: Bless the beginning, bless the end

Levi continues the theme of blessings over vaccinations, asking why should we recite a blessing over the Corona vaccine when we do not recite such a blessing over other inoculations? The Maggid of Melbourne then ponders whether the blessing should be recited over the first dose of the vaccine, or only when receiving the second dose.
