went on NYS Covid vacc specific site.
Crashed.
Called their hot line.
Spoke to a rep as she watched it crash.
Finally found the nearest appt to me is in Buffalo NY, 300 miles away.
They've had a year to prep for the most important event in our lifetime.

My sister turned me on to a local vaccine finder Facebook group that got me the codes I needed to get hooked up. I recommend the same. Many states are not handling this at all... many states eviscerated their public health function thanks to political beliefs.

.....they will often load a bunch of appointment at the same time but it can be hard to tell when.....you have to spend a lot of time checking and clicking......last Sat. they loaded a lot of appointments for Javits and they were loaded all day......

....I was able to make 5-6 appointments (I had to cancel each one as I got the earlier appointments)....first 2 months, then 1 1/2 month, then 1 month, then 3 weeks, finally got one for this Sat.......I spent all day constantly checking and clicking to get dates/times........sometimes even when you click, the appointment would disappear........

.....it isn't easy and you have to spend a lot of time......


....and the ones in the City are harder to get.....the ones out in SUNY seem to have more appointments.......

Fritz you need to come spend a weekend here in Republican-controlled TN, where Moderna flows from the hillside streams 24/7.

Clearly, you need to rethink your life choices.

I’ll even supply a tasty local beverage for after.

cbelt - "Many states are not handling this at all... many states eviscerated their public health function thanks to political beliefs. "
How dare you infer that the gloriously inept State of NY has f'd up anything.! Sure, they give $B'aires tax breaks and birthed an idiot President. But I'm sure they hired the least competent web and IT people they could find for as little as possible there-by saving us taxpayers from doomsday.
"My" senators asst just gave me the info about the fbook groups.
Thank doG for z'berg. She also looked up on the NYS website of a vacc site close to me that she was sure was open. Eh-hem. It was and is not.
Seems Stony Brook may be most likely by Sunday.

Newton - Yes. Spending the day in front of a screen because NYS ... as I said above. My spouse who had been stuck in Fla, you know, the state no one wants to talk about, got vacc'd in early Feb. Good to be in the state of DeSantis, where many people still think Covid is a hoax and refuse to wear a mask as it is their god-given right.

deckeda - I appreciate the offer. I have many ex-pats friends in TN, mate. They moved there a couple decades ago, as heavy hitters to Music Row from NY and LA.
I have worked Nashville a couple times. It was not a life choice for me.
I'm a Kentucky, Islay and Knappogue drinker, though I'm sure I could find my way to TN.

I'm sure NYS will eventually work. But was more about they've had a year to prepare.
It is a giggle.

Luckily I happened to visit my county site after they cleared out the previous full appointments. There are still 2 appointments open today when I just checked. It is still a mess in general, it seems they only put up new days to make appointments as doses trickle in. I made a reservation yesterday for a jab today. I just got back from a dose of the Janssen/J&J vaccine. woot smiley

I refused to create (or renew the 10 year old dark one) a new Faecesbook account in order to make it easier to find a vaccine appointment. They already have too much information on users.

It was an early struggle here in LA but has since straightened out. Son waited patiently to become eligible and now has a pick of time and place - no waiting. That'll probably change next week when eligibility drops to everyone 16 years old and up. Given the population size (37+ million) and their extra effort to penetrate under-served population segments, it seems California has done a fairly decent job with distribution.

In response to 60 Minutes, DeSantis was bragging about vaccine penetration in Palm Beach County - he forgot to mention that less than 5% of low income and/or POC had been vaccinated or that his Health Department routinely fudges numbers - he's a true inheritor of the Trump legacy.

I'm less than 20mi from the KY border, where our handmade and quite decidedly sub-legal 'shine supply is sourced provided I catch our friend Pigs on the right day with what comes back in his truck's footwell. Pigs has a fine collection of tractors in the shed and an interesting coin and gun collection in the mobile home, all of which must surely be worth more than the mobile home. Without question, the "finest kind" of people, our Pigs. He rang the house phone one time, identifying himself by his real name and I didn't recognize it LOL.

I must confess I was introduced to, and appreciate a few products from the River Spey but the Islay region ... I was less of a fan. We don't need to mention (well-known) names there. That said I'd still not turn down a suitable castle-bred variety if provided the opportunity however.

I like it smokey and peety.
I had a whiff of Ga's finest some years ago when I was working there.
The hair on the boys stood up and ran.

Fritz,

No surprise. NYS opened the door for anyone 16 years old and up to get vaccinated. It was very difficult to get appointments even when they limited the groups. Now? All bets are off. However, I wouldn't rely on just the NYS web site. The info for obtaining a vaccine from alternative vaccination sites is readily available.

Counties, pharmacies and even towns and villages are setting up vaccinations and you can't find their appointment scheduling via the NYS site. You have to look at their sites. Even check out local Facebook and Nextdoor.com groups.

Robert
