After a year of trying to stay informed about the pandemic, I find I missed one important line of inquiry: Once I know I’m eligible for the vaccine, what then?
As far as I can see, I need to check this website, for my healthcare provider, regularly:
Sharp will send me an email and/or text when I’m eligible, but they recommend checking the county website and scheduling an appointment myself. That URL is here:
There are dozens of locations in the county, and as far as I can see I have to check each one manually to find available appointments.
Also, it appears I can’t schedule an appointment until I’m already eligible. In other words, I can’t schedule an appointment today for Thursday, when I will be eligible.
Supposedly same-day appointments open up at the end of the day. I guess I’ll start keeping an eye on that Thursday.
I’ve also noted two twitter accounts that are tweeting out available appointments:
I just now configured those twitter accounts to alert my phone when they tweet. Hopefully they will not make my phone blow up.
Any other tips?
