"Looking forward, the Drafting Guidelines Workgroup and the Community Vaccine Advisory Committee are preparing for who will receive the shots and how to make sure they are administered equitably. They face a dizzying array of research, decisions and logistics that must be adjusted to each new group as the vaccines roll out."

This is outrageous!

They have know for months that vaccines were coming and a plan should have been in place long ago.

"...[F]ront-line health care workers...who are in the Phase 1A groups will need to have completed their vaccinations..."

I sure hope that doesn't include the alarmingly high number of health care workers who are refusing the vaccine. They and their anti-vaccine beliefs can't be allowed to hold up vaccines for those further down the list who want it.

Officials are more concerned about vaccine getting in the "wrong" arms than getting it out of freezers. The result? The SJMerc reports that only 1/4 of the vaccine California has received is in people after a month.

Why doesn't the County have a single vaccine portal with opportunities to schedule unused slots so nothing goes to waste? We've had months to prepare and so far the results suggest it'll be years before most of us can get a vaccine.
