Thank you, again, Supervisor Simitian. The public deserves to know the detailed plans for the vaccine rollout by the major health care providers in the county. I was just on the phone this morning with my health care provider and I was stonewalled when I asked the questions you are raising in this ordinance. The major health care providers continue to hide behind the State of California guidance documents. Unless they do a much better job in communicating to the public, the Covid vaccination program will be inefficient, disorganized, confusing and slower than the public health crisis requires.

Let’s add more bureaucracy. This will definitely speed up the process. Are supervisors medical professionals? Why they even touch this topic?

Everything that is being touch by government turns into sh*t. Let professionals handle it.

I called up the PAMC to see if I could schedule a shot. Like above - they could not provide any information. Next I will visit the CVS pharmacy since that is where I got my shots last year. This is so disturbing since we all can read in the papers that other people in other locations are getting their shots at giant venues - like sports facilities. Our county had a very high count so we should have a lot of choices on getting shots here.

With new Biden administration inheriting this mess (at federal level at least) there’s a hint today things ate supposed to be accelerated (fingers crossed), but some may be trained to vaccinate us last-on-the-list persons. With our luck, we’ll be offered a different, questionable vaccine months out! AND it will be given by a hastily trained person.

The other shock is the outrageous state of CA “priority” lists.
CA should prioritize by age! Oldest to youngest, after true frontline medical personnel - and truly essential workers.

We all agree working frontline workers are at great risk.
Still, youth is a great benefit.....
Accounting clerks age 30 in hospitals are not “essential.”
Nighttime stockers age 20 at CVS are not “essential.”
How dare they list prisoners ahead of those of us 50-64YO! Risk rises greatly with age. Please contact your local politicians.
Prisoners of whatever age owe a debt to society and should be LAST IN LINE.
