We need more appointment times for each group as people become eligible for the vaccine. My husband, 71, couldn't get an appointment on Monday, Feb. 22. The slots filled up in 2 hours! Today there were shots available at Sisters Firehall. Times were all gone in 35 minutes! What do we do????????

My wife and I are over 70 years old. I have Stage 3 kidney disease and my wife is a pre-school teacher. We have filled out vaccination request forms and have called daily trying to get an appointment. We are unable to get a solid answer on our status. Complete our group first!.

Use the stock you have! When more becomes available, there won't be a backlog of people who need shots. With 2-3 weeks between doses, it's logical to get as many 1st doses into arms as possible. This expedites their 2nd dose. This allows more vaccine for those coming up in the next tier!

While I am allergic to any influenza vaccine, have been for years (documented), I still keep tabs on the vaccine problems. The vaccines should not just sit and wait once they arrive.

That's silly. Get people protected as soon as possible.

Only because those most at risk for death (seniors and underlying conditions) aren't fully eligible yet. They should've been prioritized and if they had, then it would be fine to slow down the process because the remaining people would be healthy.

Absolutely not! Even tho it is frustrating to get thru to make an appt. - even when your age group is eligible - the few who DO get thru is better than NONE getting thru and getting vaccinated.

Becoming a union member saved my life and changed the direction of my life, being a single mom of two with no child support. I vigorously approve of unions.

My brief stint as a first line manager convinced me that workers need unions. I saw how upper management, in that setting, really wanted to treat workers.

I worked for a union and later belonged to a union. The downfall of America's middle class correlates directly with the downfall of unions, beginning at least 30 years ago.

Um, what was the question? Anyway, wouldn't you have had to have a job to be in a union? And wouldn't you have to be able to read to have a job?
