Biden’s America: 200,000,000 vaccine shots in 100 days

Post by nafod »

We might stumble out the other side of this virus pandemic after all.

It’s so good even Trump got the shot. Secretly, because there was no way to make money off of it.

I'm getting my first dose next Wednesday. So 3 weeks later is second dose, then a few weeks to build immunity. I know it's not a Golden Ticket, but I'll still feel a fair bit safer.

The key to the pandemic being kicked in the nuts is the 2nd and 3rd world. As long as you have SE Asian and South American countries blowing up and breeding new variants this thing will linger. Brazil in particular is a big worry.

Brazil has gone full retard. The whole country’s health system is about to collapse.

My daughter, 22, got the shot in a neighboring rural (red Trump voting) county because they were apportioned shots based on population, but can't convince the people to get it. So she got the "can you show up tomorrow" call due to being on the standby don't throw it down the drain waitlist. Yay for her, but WTF?

Almost like Operation Warp Speed was a huge success.

It strikes me that, despite the constant warnings across the globe, I have yet to hear of a single national healthcare system that has "collapsed".

Brazil ran out of oxygen in Manaus and had people with COVID asphyxiate a month or so back. That's a collapse.

I predict it's going to happen across the country here in a week or so.

Brazil is a big variant breeding Petri dish at the moment. The latest one makes young people sick too.

Have you ever been to Brazil? Running out of shit is their natural state of affairs.

Something weird around here:

I know 8-9 guys, myself included, whom have signed up for the vaccine and not been called the last 3 weeks.

Meanwhile, they are basically out in the streets jabbing people.

You're predicting across the country here? As in here U.S or here Brazil?

Where are you predicting the collapse?

How many places have you signed up at?

Here in PA, you sign up at lots of different places. My daughter had an appointment for a place 50 miles away at first, then got one closer.

Look out into rural counties, the Trumpier the better. They tend to have lower demand.

I don't know if your experience will be similar, but my industry happened to get put in 1B, so I called the county vaccine hotline when I was slumming it in group 2, and immediately was given an appointment for the next day. I didn't realize 20,000 local doses had become available 5 minutes earlier. I got my wife, a friend's wife, and a coworker registered, and the person on hold at the same time was told all were booked. Half these folks were waiting on a call.

My impression is the outreach is simply overwhelmed by the in-reach. I've helped others get signed up since, all with inbound reaching out or seeking out cancelled appointments at centers with potentially expiring doses.

I have also heard tell of the advice, "Call the Walgreens in the most-Republican leaning zipcode near you," and seen unconfirmed reports of success on that front.

Edit: one more. My coworker who has been helping folks get signed up literally timed the "Press 1 for English" at exactly opening time and was able to get through on multiple days and schedule appointments. Dialing at the exact time was not successful.

Confirmed, find Trumpy areas for easier vaccine appointments:


I got second dose Monday and have avoided side effects, my wife was pretty laid out by it.

Things might be changing. I signed up with the state early last week, got a notification on Sunday and got a vaccine today. State gave me a choice of vaccines and locations. I chose J&J and a local location— in a very blue area. Only side effects so far are mild muscle soreness and a tension headache.

First dose of Pfizer COVID repellent yesterday. Just a sore shoulder and that's fading fast.

My mom got the Pfizer shot and didn't have any issues other than a little injection site soreness.

Yankees 3B is out for today with side effects from his injection.
