Officials at the St. Charles County Health Department in Missouri said they were disappointed after no one showed up to a mobile Covid-19 vaccination center offering vaccines to those attending a local annual fair this week.

Kohlberg and other local health officials hoped the annual fair would help boost vaccinations amid an increase in Covid-19 cases, driven by the highly contagious delta variant.

A total of 569,796 Covid-19 cases have been confirmed in Missouri as of Saturday. At least 13,193 of the positive cases were reported in the last 7 days. Only 41 percent of the state's population is fully vaccinated.

Officials have said the delta variant is believed to be responsible for much of the spread in the state, particularly in the southwestern and northern regions as well as in rural areas.

I shake my head--I have given up trying to understand selfish people who do not care about themselves, their neighbors, their friends, their family. etc.

11. Even worse - they won't take a proven vaccine, but they will take horse medication.

12. Start shipping those unused doses to the Middle East, Africa and Asia or wherever!

If you can't be bothered to save yourself then you forfeit your doses. There are folks paying thousands of dollars to travel to the USA, just to get the vaccine because they know that they only have to show up and it's free.

So sorry, Charlie...

If you don't get the shots then your doses will be designated as "donation doses" and rerouted to anyone else or all of the listed locations and you will not be able to sign up for the shots after ~such-and-such~ date.

The you snooze, you lose approach.

It's now or never.

Covid vaccines: Tourists head to the US to get vaccinated

Covid vaccines: Tourists head to the US to get vaccinated
Close
The shortage of vaccines and slow vaccine rollouts in many parts of the world, has sparked a trend of vaccine tourism, with many tourists heading to the United States to get vaccinated.

Nearly 50% of US residents are fully vaccinated but the rates are much lower in many countries.

The BBC's Cindy Sui has been speaking to some 'vaccine tourists' at San Francisco International Airport, where anyone who is allowed to pass through customs can get a free shot as long as they do not currently have Covid, have not had another Covid vaccination and are at least 18 years old.

23. Pitch it like: "Don't let the US give your vaccination to some foreigner!"

(I know that's totally racist, but framing is everything...)

16. Fairs all over the state around this time.

And they are all going. Unlike last year, they won’t get lucky and not catch it this time. There will be a lot of sick people soon. Wonder how many will need hospital help?

17. Yes, delta is so much more infectious.

So people attending mass gatherings are going to get it in large numbers.
