Here in my small town (county population 100k) in Oklahoma we are on schedule for Phase 3 of vaccinations to begin tomorrow. They’ve already vaccinated healthcare workers, residents at long-term care facilities, fire & police, teachers, etc. Phase 3 starts tomorrow and is for people age 65 and older. I saw on Facebook last night that the County was working over the weekend to schedule appointments and they are already booked for this week.
Vaccinations in demorat-run states aren’t moving so smoothly. A friend of mine in Washington State (who is 60 and has a heart condition) says she probably won’t receive hers until June. (As of Dec. 30 Washington State received hundreds of thousands of doses yet dispersed only about 59,000 vaccinations.)
In Calfornia, the problem appears to be that as many as 50% of healthcare workers refuse to get the vaccine. At least that’s what the leaders are blaming it on. They say “an issue impacting the take-up of the vaccines may also be the reluctance of health care workers who have been put first in line to receive protection from COVID-19.”
I don’t see why that means that the vaccines aren’t available for those next in line, if they move quickly. Yet that would require counties to be highly organized and efficient in distribution of vaccines.
Look at these pathetic numbers out of New York:
Vaccination in New York City is basically only occurring during regular business hours. Very little on weekends. Almost none on holidays.
We are in a war-like situation. We need to be vaccinating TWENTY FOUR-SEVEN. We are losing precious time. pic.twitter.com/BpOpCRHVby

Yet the guy tweeting the above is this guy:
You’d think the guy who is the Chair of Health Committee could do something to push out vaccinations a little more efficently and quickly.
These demorat-run states are still facing severe restrictions & lockdowns and are on day 300-something of “two weeks to flatten the curve.”
I’m sure there’s absolutely NO reason whatsoever they are moving so slow in dispersing vaccines. None whatsoever…
