Ed managed to get us vaccine appointments tomorrow via Publix in FL!!

For those in FL using the same Publix system: it doesn't matter when you log onto the Publix website (some folks are logging on the night before and letting their computers run overnight, thinking they are at the "front" of the line) Ed logged on a few minutes before the 6AM opening; and got in to make appointments around 6:30AM. Once you fill out the forms and answer ALL the questions and register yourself, at the bottom of the page, it will ask you if you want to make a second appointment - this would be for your spouse or friend, etc. Your second dose of vaccine is automatically scheduled.

Less than 3 hours ;-) Tuesday at noon at Publix; they are using the Moderna vax. Soooo excited - and (selfishly) happy to not have to get up at 5AM any more to seek a spot....LOL!

Got my first COVID vaccination this morning. Pfizer shot with no side effects so far. The process was amazingly organized, efficient and we were safely processed considering it was done indoors in a hospital. Indoors is really necessary here as it was 1* and snowing this morning - waiting in line outdoors or in a drive through just wouldn't work.

They are using the Pfizer exclusively at this hospital as they have the ultra-cold storage facilities and to not mix types of vaccine the Moderna shot has been distributed to other sites in our county.

The scheduling has been efficiently run by Indiana and our county health department seems to be running the administration efficiently as well. The only down side it that it took 3 weeks between scheduling the appointment and actual vaccination, but knowing the date and time and having confidence that the shot would be there was reassuring.

The fact that we could use an online website to schedule the appointment and that the wait times and functionality of the online registration made this as easy as possible.

I find this kind of funny. NH is using drive-through clinics, some of which have been in sub-zero weather, with no complaints. There are complaints of waits and some disorganization but nothing about it being too cold.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

If the drive through goes into a garage type facility, I'd agree. I think more about the vaccinators and clerical staff in an outdoor setting. Wind chill was -14. I guess your NH citizens are a little more hardy [emoticon]

Dr Doug, in your county IN could used the “Clean Air Car Check Stations” for drive through vaccination sites.

We've got a few in our county, but they are still doing cars.

I noticed in the paper today that many of the drive up COVID test sites that are basically tents in parking lots are temporarily closed due to the weather.

Some of the pharmacies and urgent care centers have the drive up testing sites.
