Vaccination Appointments For Seniors Are A Gamble

 

Last updated 2/22/2021 at 3:20pm



County officials are trying to distract from their responsibility by emphasizing a part of the problem they cannot solve. They cannot increase the volume of vaccines supply but they could install an efficient system that would save our seniors the inefficient and frustrating crapshoot to get an appointment time each Monday at 2 p.m.

Other counties and states around have simple online systems that allow seniors to obtain an appointment for vacci-nation. With a date and time conveniently secured, these seniors can lean back and wait.

Public Health is working hard but not smart. Elaine Russell’s heroic statement that “seniors are our top priority” is hard to believe. Many seniors are suffering because the uncertainty places considerable strain on their health. We should either change the system or we should change the managers in charge.
