So you just showed up and waited in line. 

 

No appointment?

Sorry, yes we had appointments.  At the civic center.  Our age group,  over 70, was able to start scheduling on February 12th.  Logged on about 9:30 am and had our choice of times.  Chose the 14th between 12 and 2.  Arrived at 12:10.  On our way home at 1.  Would have been finished earlier but I have allergies to some meds so had to wait 30 minutes after shot instead of usual 15.  2nd shot also went easy.

I'm guessing you had to give some basic info when you visited the appointment site.

Very basic info.  Gave them medical info at the vaccination site.  

 

Went back and looked at email they sent confirming appointment.   Gave them dob, address, phone numbers,  sex, ethnicity, but no insurance info.

Same here, when I registered online with county dept of health in January.  I answered general questions and gave name, dob and email address.  I dont remember inputting our home address.

5 weeks later got email with link to schedule appt at one of the county vaccine sites being held at a community college.  

Never gave our insurance info, never gave our SSN,  guy at front door asked to see photo id/drivers license to simply confirm we were who was on his list.  Went inside and answered basic health questions, got vaccinated, move over to waiting area and scheduling of 2nd appt.  

Same process when we showed up for 2nd appt.  Just show guy at front door our license and in the door we went.

Only difference was people there for first dose now had a choice which vaccine they wanted and they gave you a purple sticker for pfizer or green for moderna.

I was told by someone there we should call our doc and let them know we are fully vaccinated.

So, if you applied at 16 different sites, didn't you have to provide them some information. 🤔

 

And when you got the shot, did you have to show an ID?

 

We did a lot of information at Walgreens to get ours. Even had to create an online account

Other then am I Breast Feeding, Pregnant, Smoker and age nope and putting name on lists(in Dec/Jan) not much else, 3 County Health Offices in 3 different Counties,  Hospitals, local pharmacies, one regional Grocery. Did get both shots same place. ID is funny thing, my DL Enhanced, they allowed me in Feb renew it online and without new Picture due to Covid. Guess will use same from 4yrs ago. Waiting on it & probably arrived in MI(I'm in AZ), going back June 1. Twice had Truck Tabs sent here by MI Secretary of State Office and were lost. So I have a Temp DL w/o picture I printed online, just piece paper. When got my Vaccine used my VA ID. They just looked at it, returned it w/o copying any info

In oHIo there is a House Bill 6 on the news 

Part of that bill allows places to hire High School students who are in med programs at their schools to help handle paper work at vaccine locations.

I dont seem to be able to find it on google but tv just said it crossed the wire JnJ vaccines have been put on pause. The stock market believes it. Dow futures dropped to down 100 as soon as the news hit.

Just announced that the US is  pausing  the use of J and J due to potential blood clots. That can't be good news for getting things back to normal

Here in the UK have asked 45-50s to apply for Vaccine. Our infections and death are down to the levels seen last Sep. 

 

Shops, pubs and restaurants open (latter two for sitting outside only)

 

This time last April was the peak for the 1st Wave, so goes to show that lovk downs and Jabs do work.

State of PA opened up to vaccinating anyone 16 or older.   Not sure who was getting J and J in my area.  First it was reserved for teachers only, then being used for restaurant and transportation workers.  

I wonder if this new issue has anything to do with the fact a plant in Baltimore had mixed up ingredients for astra zeneca with j and j vaccines. Maybe they did not get all batches recalled in time.

Here are dow futures. And rcl trading down.

 

As above didnt see on google yet, but the market shows it. Hopefully not the start of a wicked sell off as stocks are a bit overvalued. This affects economy reopening and rcl resuming.

 

Rcl already off $2.50 a share pre market.

Where I'm was the County was doing first, I went to Pharmacy. Sure they have my info, but besides Vaccine Name/Date for me all they have is Age/Name/Address I gave them. 

That is all that is needed to eventually link back to the central state ran database. Unfortunately, some doctor's offices are behind in the times and their system predates the being able to automatically query the state databases. Also some states having trouble with getting data entered into the database due to bad/cheep design choices and have suspended or reduced how often the automatic provider side bulk patient queries will provide returns. This is so the state system can handle the number of incoming vaccine updates.  Also, at most vaccine sites, the records are paper and the database updates are happening later with staff that are specifically trained on data entry.

Don't think of the electronic medical records system as a smooth running system but as multiple data bases ranging from stuff created in the 1990s to modern systems and everything is patched together with various degrees of success thanks to programmers creating 1 off scripts.

DeSantis doesn't really want cruising to restart in Florida, he says no to mandatory vaccines for eligible cruise passengers.

The only way his order could be enforced for cruises is on the river/dinner cruises that never leave Florida waters. He doesn't have ANY authority under interstate, international or maritime law. His executive order is the equivalent of an old man yelling at a cloud.

As a Canadian I can't wait until his Presidential run, your politics have been way too boring lately. 

And I'm loving the boring, life is gradually getting back to normal, the only thing I miss is not coming over the border to see our neighbors to the north.

When we lived in NB in the 80's, the people at the hospital where I worked were convinced I would be expert in gunshots, because of all the crime they saw on the news from the US. I couldn't convince them our town had one murder in 22 years...

He may just have to edit his executive order if he wants cruises to restart out of FL ports.    From a legal stand point I understand him not wanting businesses to require vaccinated people, but cruise ships is a whole different world than other travel businesses out of florida.   

Having everyone vaccinated on a cruise ship is probably going to be the only way the cdc will allow them to restart out of the US.

I doubt desantis wants a ship full of sick passengers quarantining in his state.

6 blood clots out of 1.6 million vaccines, no deaths.  Seems like a bit of an over reaction to halt distribution.  I don't expect it will last long, an advisory committee will review the data later this week, and distribution will restart I believe.

What shots are 100% safe ?


  From observation, some are expecting the outcomes to be “zero” infections/spread/etc. or the restrictions shall continue.  Such absolutes seem unworkable.

When you have an "expert" saying you still can't go out to eat, etc even if you've been fully vaccinated, that doesn't help.  And, yes, so many don't understand vaccines at all nor do they care to do any research.  They want soundbites.
