Everyone has to register with the state DOH. Then you get an invitation to make an appt via text and/or email. The nurse I talked to said go online immediately to make an appt as they fill up quickly. I made my appt as soon as I got the text. They only send invites to ppl who are eligible and haven’t gotten a vaccine. There are some pharmacies and other sites who hold their own clinics - ppl have to be registered with the state but eligibility requirement not needed. Some hospitals and medical groups and clinicS also holding their own clinics and making their own appts. The event I went to was huge but fast and efficient.. The University hospital sponsored the event and had a ton of staffers and volunteers. The state has also had drive through events at the state fairgrounds Walmart parking lot, etc. mine wasn’t drive through - it was at the UNM basketball arena - plenty of parking and people to direct and guide you through. I even got a text message after the 15 minute waiting period was up. Also, when I got the vaccine I was scheduled immediately for the second shot.

I'm glad she had a mild case of it.  Most likely, me having diabetes + helped me have a horrid case.  I take most of those as well and have for years.

There are some reports of blood clots after vaccinations. Anecdotal so far but enough for some countries to take note. Ireland has suspended AZ use until more data is collected. I doubt the FDA will rush to approve it right away, especially since we have 3 approved vaccines

That is interesting. It sounds efficient.  What if people don’t want to go to a mega site?  I know quite a few elderly people who drove to a huge stadium and were around far too many people, even distanced.

Yes, there are many factors.

We don’t appear to need an additional vaccine anyway.

There are some smaller sites, such as pharmacy chains and independent ones, too. I know there are provisions for elderly and disabled confined to their homes - they were in the first group to be Vaccinated.

I don’t know of anyone vaccinated at home.  I think everyone who wants a vaccine should get one as soon as possible, at any age.  That should be the goal. Then when they see how many are not vaccinated, they can decide what to do from that point. I realize a percentage will refuse vaccines which is their right.  We’ve seen those posts here. But to get herd immunity and be safe for everyone else, there must be a minimum.

I’m sure a lot of ppl are vaccinated at home if they are disabled or homebound rather than living in a nursing home or assisted living. They would have family and/ or home health care 24/7

That is a compassionate way to distribute it, but here they must travel to a site.
