Our vaccination appt was cancelled

It's my fault. We got the call that we could register on a Friday. We both went online and registered. By Saturday night, we had not received the confirmation email they had promised. I called the phone number on Monday and got us registered.

I imagine they had perhaps 40 doses. This small town in western NC has no cell phone service and only occasionally internet connection. I should have known better and gone with the most archaic method available, the telephone. We drove out to find the health dept yesterday so we would know where it was. Cars were in line for their vaccinations. Those were smart people who knew to use the telephone, perhaps a rotary dial one, to register.

I have learned my lesson, we live in circa 1970. I am back to expecting to get the vaccine sometime from August-October. My husband is now 71, I will be 70 in April. We will be lucky if it comes to this backwoods place (with all the trump signs still up) by late summer.

Actually in tears in disappointment. But, my fault for living in this century instead of pre-internet and -cell phones.

1. I'm so sorry. Please keep trying, especially with newer vaccines being approved.

I totally can relate to a community that doesn’t want to move into the 21st century.

3. I'm so sorry, but don't give up hope

I live in Colorado and on the evening news they mentioned something about asking our medical provider. I don't know if that's really an option for you, but maybe you could try giving your doctor's office a call and they'll have some advice.

4. I'm sorry. To be so close to getting an appointment

must be frustrating. Someone likened getting a covid vaccine appointment to the Hunger Games and I agree.

5. Hopefully since you're registered

you’ll be first in line for the next doses in the coming days or weeks, not months

Hang in there


✌🏻

6. Sometimes the online scheduling is confusing, especially when they first roll iit out.

Having a voice on the other end can be a better option, if you can get through.

Good luck getting rescheduled, I feel badly for you. Stay safe till you get your vaccine.

7. can you try to get one in the closest

Hell even Safeway will start soon.
Keep trying. Register by phone and PC if you have to you can always cancel one.
