Covid vaccination scheduling woes (--) 

I've been eligible for a week but despite well supported attempts, can't find an appointment for a vaccination I can get to

They're opening up vaccines for everyone over 16 in 2 weeks.

At this rate, I might find an appointment some time in the next 50 years, give or take a few days

Covid vaccination scheduling whoas (++) 

After like a week of trying and deep, increasing frustration at not being able to get a vaccine appointment, I make these posts to vent a bit, yeah? :blobtilt:

As though my doctor reads my posts, an hour later I got a vaccine appointment in my e-mail out of nowhere from my family doctor. :bloblaugh:

re: Covid vaccination scheduling woes (--) 

@mawr Honestly, it has been like that down here for everyone that I know.. except people with Kaiser.

Literally, last month I got email from Kaiser saying I was eligible, 5 minutes later I had an appointment for 3 days later. Granted I spent an hour and half standing in a parking lot to get it but still.

The rest of my household is eligible but has not been able to find -any- availability.

Meanwhile I have an appointment for my second shot (couldn't leave the monitoring area post first shot without scheduling second shot appt)

re: Covid vaccination scheduling woes (--) 

@mawr I also.. I so not looking forward to next week. Second shot is on Thursday. First shot knocked me on my ass for 2 days and left me fatigued for 3-4 after and the second is supposed to be worse!

re: Covid vaccination scheduling woes (--) 

@wobblewuffess It has been worse for everyone I know. :bloboh: Be sure to make room for the recovery!!

re: Covid vaccination scheduling woes (--) 

@mawr Yeah, I scheduled PTO for Thursday and Friday and told my boss Monday will be tentative.

My team literally demanded I take PTO after I showed up the day after the first one and apparently I looked and sounded so bad everyone on the call was like "Go the fuck back to bed!"

@mawr This was the Pzifer vaccine for clarity.

@mawr If you're willing to drive a ways I was able to get an appointment here wwmedgroup.com/covid-19vaccine and last I checked they have open slots

@mawr I just checked and today/tnw are full; they aren't reserving next week yet though so maybe tomorrow that opens? When I signed up they didn't ask for my info til after I had a slot lined up
