A new vaccination can be scary. The shot itself could be anxiety-inducing, or the 15 minute wait — in relative silence — to be sure there’s no adverse reaction.

On some days at St. Luke’s Hospital COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Boise, that anxious tension might be absorbed into the sounds of an instrument called the handpan, played by the hands of a self-taught volunteer eager to share its healing power.
