1. Ohio is an absolute mess

I'm north of Cincinnati now. Lucky for me the senior village I live in arranged for several clinics so those of us in the independent living cottages could just go there. I have friends in their 80's or 90's that still live in their own home. For some, it took 6-8 weeks to finally score an appointment - and believe me, we had a whole team trying to get lucky and hit one of the sites in the 88 seconds new appointments lasted.

It seems to be loosening up a little bit now but not much. I got lucky and was online at the right time to get an appointment for my nephew (over 60) at his local Kroger for late March.

3. Sounds like you might be up in Butler or Warren? Ham Co was surprisingly easy for me.

I guess that's the diff between a blue county and the hard red counties to the north.

6. HA! He lives in Madeira.

The appointment I scored was in Hyde Park so not bad.

Kroger's move to a central website did improve things quite a lot. At least it is easier to search.

4. We have big clinics next week...I am in Austintown at the moment although I own a house

in Cleveland and go back and forth. I had no issue getting an appointment. It will be on Tuesday in a rec center thousands will be innoculated. You drive though...don't even get out of your car. I think Ohio has done pretty well.

13. Same in TX but now that Biden is sending vaccines to

all the private companies... Opening up now that supply going out.

Still effed up.... You have to go to each website. But doable.

CVS, Walgreens, Sam's, Walmart

Also, Abbott was actively diverting vaccine she FEMA started distribution.

Some is coming through pharmacies now, but it is extremely thought.

bias/favors?? ( One can hope)


Walmart
Sam's
CVS
Walgreens
HEB

Biden worked this out ( to bypass states?)

You have to go to each of their websites.

27. CVS is also almost impossible. For example- only availability currently-- two tiny towns in the

panhandle.

Also the CDC vaccine availability website is extremely inaccurate for TX.

Consequently, it's a shiteshow of randomness.

With Walmart/Sam's. And then called pharmacy directly to see what vaccine it was. I think maybe Walmart just got their shipments in. Timing is everything huh

to get up to CT for my dad's post-death Navy "funeral" 2 months after he died of covid after being sent to nursing home after innocuous back issues. CT was like such a reprieve from TX where no one gave a shit.

25. Thanks. Not sure why I had to throw all that in. Still blaming

Trump ... Got to let go of that.

I really like Minnesota too. Worked on an assignment in Minneapolis..and loved St Paul & Stillwater - great food.

Also people are so friendly we got invited to their place 'up north" they called it. Had a blast. Bar hopped from VFW to VFW buying pull tabs

9. Okay, but then sort it by

percentage of doses used. Then it looks a bit different. DC, who looks awesome in the first example, with 19.5% of the population receiving at least one dose, has only used 63% of the vaccine it's been sent. Last place out of everyone.

And while it's great that 19.5% of people in DC have gotten their first shot, it's probably going to be significantly easier to coordinate vaccine distribution with a population of only 700K versus doing so in Texas, who has given out 73% of its available vaccine, only gotten 8% of people vaccinated with one dose, but is trying to vaccinate a state with a population of almost 29 MILLION people.

In short, we're comparing apples and oranges.

10. Been thinking about % used. Might it be that they got too many

Last edited Sun Mar 7, 2021, 11:18 AM - Edit history (1)

Vaccines - more than they could handle? Or purposely slowing it? Think the latter is what Abbott
doing.


On edit: % used is probably a complex subject huh. Other than pure inefficiency, demand comes into play. Also, what about age of population? For some reason, don't see DC as having a super high population of older folks. However, if they've vaccinated older people, they need to ratchet down to younger?

14. All of the factors you mention

make sense. Some states may have a younger population with fewer eligible in 1A and 1B. Can a state with a population of 500K (Wyoming) fairly be measured against a state with a population of 39 million (California)?

Obviously it's good to look at the numbers because every state should be constantly looking to improve and trying to get as many people vaccinated as possible... but I also think it's important to keep in mind you can't just look at two states and assume Vermont is doing awesome and Texas sucks because outside factors may make the answer more complex than that.

18. Good points! I wonder why Alaska is #1 in vaccinations. Because

Most of population lives in fewer places geographically? Yet their efficiency is low so they've got vaccines not used. Maybe rest of population too scattered and remote to reach?

I do think, in Republican states with some exceptions their brain does go to... "How can we help all citizens in a pandemic health battle" different culture.

24. So, in GA a lot of folks are going to AL for vaccination

I wonder how that is counted?

(GA has gone to 1B but excludes higher education faculty and staff. AL does not and the Dept of Health is fine with folks from out of state getting shots there)
