In our state, the only health issues that push someone into the first wave are ones that require in-home or residential care. There are a lot of other conditions that make someone especially vulnerable (asthma and COPD, for example) that don't require residential or in-home care. I do wish they would address those.

Right now, the criteria for the first wave are pretty much age-related, health care workers, and educators. Maybe prison population, I'm not sure about that one.


We're in stage 2 here, although they seem to have broken stage 2 into sub-stages. I'm in the second part of stage 2, which just opened up. For once, high blood pressure does something good for me.

Yes, the prison population is ahead of us.

I wish they’d address pre-existing conditions as well as age. At least by the time they get past the 65 and up population, before they open it to all comers.

Today was the first day my age group could theoretically try to get an appointment time.

I checked every hour or two starting from when they first allowed us to check in, and there were no appointments available until five minutes ago.

I am now scheduled for this Thursday! I’m guessing I lucked into logging in just as they uploaded a new batch of open slots. I think there are about 60,000 of us in my demographic, and they’re going to do maybe a couple of thousand of us this week.

The fact that I have a teeny bit of extra free time on my hands these days I think paid off for me.

More importantly, my appointment is before Jon’s. I told them I was a 26-year-old grocery clerk…

Got shot number one at Walgreens this morning, and it was really a well-run organized deal.

Got confirming emails and a phone call the day before, and was in and out in 25 minutes, including the 15 minute wait afterwards.

No side effects so far, except for the occasional urge to buy Microsoft products…

Got shot #2 on Tuesday. Just slight injection discomfort - but no more than the first time (Pfizer).

Wow, am I the only unvaccinated person here?

Mary Anna is not vaccinated, although she'd like to be. We are currently in phase 2; she's phase 3.

I am not as of yet. Mass is still on step 2 of phase 2 meaning folks over 65.

It is said that will take a month to get through.

I am just expecting to be on the bottom of the list that way if I pop up sooner, it will be a pleasant surprise.

I am so tired of the whole thing. My young coworkers are like the kids in the back seat saying "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

I am just trying to ignore it as it is starting to make me a bit batty. Razzer

"For it is not light
that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the
whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the
conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the
hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be
proclaimed and denounced." Frederick Douglass 1852
