Okay- anyone dealing with CDC for shots - 'SPLAIN this

The VAMS computer system worked well at the vaccination center in Greenville, but the online scheduling still baffles me. Besides scheduling me for 3 appointments at places that were not giving shots and cancelling 2 of them without a request to do so, I have had 2 messages telling me I needed to reschedule cancelled appointments that I had already rescheduled. And then the following "Update" has been e-mailed. From what I can glean from all the gibberish, I think it is saying I might get to the clinic for the 2nd shot, check in at the door and maybe not be able to get the shot for some reason (ran out of vaccine before I get to the end of the line? If true - bad omen). If that is what they mean, I think they could have done so with a lot fewer words and stated what they are anticipating more easily. Let me think what you think about this.
This is word for word. (auto-correct changed so many things that I had to re-re-correct to get it back to original - I could not cut & paste)


RECIPIENT PORTAL UPDATE : Improvement to recipient scheduling workflow.

If recipient is checked in for an appointment but the clinic does not take further action on their record in VAMS, the recipient will now be able to schedule a new appointment. The Schedule Appointment button will reappear for recipients once they are checked in and the system will allow them to schedule a new appointment 28 days after their checked in appointment.The system will also auto-cancel anyone still in check in status after 31 days.

Or does this mean someone at the clinic failed to

enter info saying you got the shot and that failure didn't open a link to schedule your second shot? That's probably what it is intended but why wouldn't they just say so?

The government is not good at things. Look at the DMV/USPS. Minus the military they’re pretty incompetent

Any reason you excluded the military?

Not saying I don’t appreciate them, but they are not immune to incompetence, especially on the admin side.

If the government told me not to get the vaccine then I would.

I don’t think that the CDC is responsible for the point of service. More likely DHEC or a contractor

The point of service isn’t my complaint

with this message- the CDC put this statement online “explaining “ an improvement they have made in scheduling without telling us why such a change would be needed

Clover---- I though by now you would have learned the government is highly selective who they hire to write the rules and regulations proposed by politicians who have no idea what they entail. The object is to write something that no one can understand, not even the writer. This requires the government to hire additional people to answer the questions that you and all other citizens seek. This requires about three or four levels and the final level tells us we are the problem and we are back to Square One.

The only answer I know is to put your foot in the door and don't move it until someone can give you a straight answer (in English)

I set up my covid vaccine through CDC VAMS site and did cancel a second shot location and then rebooked same day earlier date at a different location. I did get an email from CDC yesterday that I cancelled my appt. and needed to rebook which I did. When I went on the login site it shows I cancelled and rebooked. I am disregarding the email since shows I have an appointment for second shot. Hope this helps.

I am not sure what the check in you are referring to means. I do not see this and never saw for first shot. I just went into my appts. and saw where i cancelled and have a new appt. I disregarded also the email that said I need to reschedule.

I have done all of that too

If you read the message I put in my original post - it was on the VAMS website this morning as an update talking about a new improvement allowing people to reschedule appointments after "check in" at clinics and the clinic failed to enter something.

Have any of you ever seen a new computer program function perfectly when installed in the private sector? Don't think so.
