It's shameful that the immunization process is taking this long, and it's my baby who has to suffer from it meanwhile. Dear Veterans, Regarding the above sentence I wrote, I want to know if I used "meanwhile" correctly. When I read it over, it sounds a bit awkward but I don't know how I should fix it. Should "meanwhile" be moved somewhere else, or should the word be replaced by a more suitable word or phrase? I would appreciate any tips or pointers. Thank.
