Yes, we have no vaccines today… again

FLORIDA

For the second time this week, Publix in FL has cancelled its vaccine inoculation program due to inclement weather in distant states.

No word on when FLA Covid vaccines will resume for the little people, although governor DeSantis continues to mak sure his rich (white) pals are getting theirs.

Palm Beach Sunrise

This is what sunrise looks like around where I live.

It isn’t difficult — as Texas is gripped by a deadly Feb snowmaggedon — to figure out why boomers are flocking to Florida, or why I moved down here full-time 20 yeas ago, when I was still in my 40s, and housing was dirt cheap.

Hard to beat the view in beaches that are this empty, relative to, say, Europe, during the height of the tourist season, in a place where everyone speaks English and you don’t have to worry about the dollar tanking.

It helps assuage the national tragedy of a certain talk radio host joining the choir invisible this week.

 

COVID FLORIDA SIGN UP DEBACLE CONTINUES

publix

Late last week, Publix added an extra day (today) to its COVID vaccine appt sign up process.

So I went to its page at 6am.  Sign up was supposed to begin at 7am.  By 7:01, nothing.  Then suddenly my page was redirected to the South Carolina page.

I tried going back to the Florida page, but it kept going back to South Carolina.

So I closed the browser, ran CC Cleaner, and was able this time to get on to the Florida sign up page.  By now it was 7:10.

There were still 100 % slots available.  A few minutes later, it looked like this.

7 21

A few minutes later still, it looked like this.

7 48

By 7:50, there were no spots left in counties near me.

Once again, screwed out of a COVID appointment — but as the pandemic rages on, all cable TV can talk about is Donald Trump, while Congress goes on a fucking vacation.

And, in late breaking news, the head of Florida’s COVID vaccine rollout announced today that he is calling it quits.

Florida, the shithole state…. where the shit news never ends.
