I think most are going to locations in CA that have significant impact to the hospital/health system.

I'm still waiting for mine. I had to go to a house today where supposedly everyone had covid. I didn't go inside, but still had outdoor contact. The state needs to take care of first responders. We are getting exposed a lot.

Hey, as long as our "leaders" get it, we're good.

I'm in the old guy cohort, will get it (vaccine) soon. I'd rather it went to first responders, all medical personnel, anyone working in public, and maybe politicians after the twenty year olds get it.

I'm a little off about that.

Is it proven that a vaccine prevents contagion?
Is it proven that previous infection does not provide protection or prevents contagion?
Is it proven that vaccinating those with previous sars-cov-2 experience provides additional protection or contagion?

Would our society be better off if we vaccinated people without sars-cov-2 experience before those who have already been infected?

My understanding is that the vaccine prevents the virus from getting access to cells which means that it is blocked from reproducing and it's the produced virus organisms that shed and infecting others.

Perhaps DR SLO can correct my understanding.

If you say that then vaccinated people need not wear a mask.

The grocery clerk is in contact all day long. With 70% of the vaccine in CA in storage, it is time to get started giving shots.

Just a frustrated old man. who wants a shot.
My 38-year-old daughter gets her shot tomorrow in Texas.

The difference between +75 and +65 patient population size for just 1 Health System in CA is 2.5M patients.

Just to put it in perspective.

Probably true.
However, how do you know who has been vaccinated?
Too many selfish people out there who will pretend they have been while not.
Human nature.

My understanding is it would prevent the virus from replicating within your system. That doesn't mean you don't have live viral particle in your respiratory tract.

Kaiser has oddly been silent on their near daily e'mail updates in terms of THEIR role.

They simply parrot the State line but unlike CVS et al are not saying "we are setting up vaccine stations" etc.

For the flu shot they rapidly set up Drive Through stations and let everyone know about it.

Important information:

COVID-19 vaccine — While vaccines are currently in limited supply, we’re expecting supplies to increase so that all adults in the United States can get vaccinated by late 2021. Here’s where we currently are with the distribution process:

Phased approach — Federal health officials are using a phased approach to prioritize general groups of people eligible to receive the vaccine. Phase 1a includes health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities. The next group in Phase 1b includes people 75 and older and essential front-line workers, such as teachers, firefighters, and grocery store employees.

State guidelines — States will use these federal recommendations to make their own decisions about which groups of people to include in the next phases.

Limited supply — Due to limited supply, not everyone who’s eligible will be able to make an appointment right away. We’re acting as quickly as we can to provide the vaccine safely to those who are eligible as supply allows.

The groups and timing for each phase may be different in different states, and this information may change frequently. Visit kp.org/covidvaccine for the latest info on state vaccine priorities and how to get a vaccine when you meet your state’s criteria. You can also call our 24/7 recorded message hotline at 1‑855‑550‑0951 (available in English and Spanish) for regular updates.

We need your help to stop the spread — With COVID-19 cases surging across the country, no one can let their guard down, and everyone has a role to play in stopping the spread. Please continue to wear a mask, wash your hands, stay 6 feet apart, and don’t share your air.

Didn’t get a flu shot? Here’s why it’s important to get one — If you’ve ever had the flu, you know how miserable it can be. Symptoms can include fever, body aches, sore throat, and cough, and in severe cases, people with the flu can end up in the hospital. With COVID-19 cases surging and hospital resources stretched thin, protecting your health is more important than ever. Get your flu shot today.
So, they don't state they are not setting up drive through lines, they state they are making appointments for all those who qualify for the vaccine at this time. By the way, CVS is using appointments also, even though they are setting up drive through lines.

My flu shot through Kaiser was appointment only, but at a drive through line.

I didn't need an appt. for my drive up Kaiser Flu shot.

This was buried in your link so I "assume" we will be contacted when our turn comes up.
