Decided to fill the vaccine application, again

Amazing all the personal information that it requests: ethnicity. sexual orientation, medical background and many more. I don't remember answering them previously but now just selected: decline to answer.

And in today Strib, a story of many chasing vaccines

'Like the Hunger Games': Minn. vaccine hunters chase elusive doses via social media

Maura Caldwell's hopes of getting her parents inoculated against the deadly coronavirus seemed to be slipping away as she watched hundreds of people some in wheelchairs or walking with canes rush toward the entrance of Children's Minnesota Hospital in south Minneapolis.

Like those in the surging crowd, Caldwell and her parents, both in their late 60s, had heard by word of mouth that extra doses of the Pfizer vaccine had suddenly become available at the hospital and the doses would expire if they didn't get into people's arms that frigid January morning. No one knew how many shots were on hand as they climbed out of cars and buses, forming a line that snaked through the hospital's parking garage and around the block.

Caldwell's parents would endure nearly four hours of anxious waiting and confusion before they finally reached the front of the line and received the shots.

"It was like 'The Hunger Games,' " Caldwell said, referring to the post-apocalyptic film in which people fight one another to survive. "It really felt like it was every man and woman for themselves and only the strongest made it to the end."

1. Interesting how the Blue States

 

are now seeing how the Flying Monkey previous Administration purposely screwed over the Democratic run States.

BTW,your Native Communities,especially ones with Casino's are or have completed their second rounds of Vaccinations. Non Native workers at for these Casino's are doing Second round as we speak. Our Niece as well as her Hubby who is the Local Casino Executive Chef,both get their Second round this week. One on Monday and the other on Wednesday. They plan on have all Vaccinations done this week for those on Reservation as well as all Casino employees.

Good luck on finding a opening for a Shot. Here in Nevada,this past week Walmart,Kroger(Smiths),Walgreen,and CVS have made a massive dent in Vaccinations.

It seems to be the Distribution System,Fed EX as well as McKesson where the issues lay.
