I am on three different lists.

I have been able to find my wife and son spots at cvs.com.  As of just a few minutes ago they have spots in 3 cities
in Alabama. They only schedule 4 days in advance so when you see one it won’t be long to wait.

I was able to get my wife a spot in Huntsville and my son in Decatur. I got vaccinated through Huntsville Hospital a while back due teaching in person.
I read an article on the local news site which said N AL citizens are flocking to S TN for the shot. In the article an official from the TN Health Dept said the vaccine is a Federal program so no residency restrictions are placed on patients.

So, I looked at the two TN counties just N of us (Lincoln and Franklin). Lincoln is only offering 2nd doses but Franklin is offering 1st doses. They had plenty of appointments.

So, I signed us up for Tuesday. We’ll drive ~45 minutes but that’s OK.

Excellent! Sometimes you have to think outside the box. We only had to go 13 miles, but it takes 30 minutes to get there.

I got Moderna on Saturday and my next appointment is April 17. My wife got Pfizer yesterday and her next appointment is April 13. As a data point I barely knew I received a shot. Her arm is tender today and hurt when she slept on that side last night.
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

I was offered to have a clinic at the brewery. I told them to f##k off.

Why not do a community service that would ultimately benefit you?

While a community service would be a plus, it could be an investment in future earnings with the advertising as well: Opening the doors to a clinic could attract people that might not otherwise visit. Once they see its a nice place with regular folks working there, they see the drink and food selection or entertainment lineup (menu and calendar handout along with the vaccine information), a portion may be inclined to come back as customers.

Call the local news and offer a press release and have them come down and film a story in the brewery while they’re giving shots. ...and when they interview the owner don’t forget to mention the Easter Egg hunt the afternoon of 4 Apr or Independence Day celebration Jul 4th, or trivia night, or the book club......

I refuse to have vaccinations in my life, having lost a couple family members because of vaccinations with minimal recourse.  I'm not going to be responsible when they all start dropping dead, no way.

I would hold healthy eating and living classes. Funny nobody is talking about that, but that is another topic for another day and probably not here either.

If you wanna talk about it start a thread. I know several of the regulars here practice a healthy lifestyle. Y’all might teach the rest of us something.

OTOH, I've had many vaccines, including COVID, and I'm still alive....likely because of them.  I prefer science.

Great for you! It makes you and all other vaccine takers a better person than me. I can live with that.

No it doesn't.  And I think it's time to close this thread.
