Vaccination appointment process is a joke

Just spent 2 1/2 hours online and off after an e-mail came in saying I could schedule a time for my shot after signing up 4 days ago. After filling out a form with many questions, I was told I would receive a code in a second e-mail to enter so I could complete a VAMS eligibility form. Well - the code was never sent and they would not send a second code for at least one hour. After waiting over an hour I went back in and finally got a code that flashed on my screen so fast I entered it incorrectly and had to wait a few minutes for another one. Finally got approved to schedule an appointment and did a search for all sites within 50 miles and the closest one had no available openings for over a month so I moved on to another site, had no trouble getting an appointment for this Friday, received an e-mail and barcode from CDC that would allow me to enter the site, and a few seconds later got another e-mail from CDC saying they had received my request to cancel the appointment. (I am sure my neighbors heard me yelling). Went back into the system and was surprised to find out that re-scheduling at the same site took only a minute or two. I probably will become the first recipient to die from the shot.

Yep, ridiculous. Finally got my appointment this morning, 50 miles away, February 19 an entire month away and to top it off my shot is the day After my husband's so 2 trips.
.
That enrollment process is ridiculous with setting up passwords and confirmation codes sent to your email.
Please help your elderly relatives, not easy!

Sounds like you may become the 1st to die of a heart attack from the stress of trying to sign up! They should have privatized the shots with Walgreens , CVS, and local pharmacies.

This reminds me of several personal experiences with Charter Spectrum.

I still think we should've put Chick Fil A in charge. They'd vaccinate 2 lines simultaneously, never get frazzled, and probably give everyone a card for a birthday cookie while they were at it.

I think you have underestimated the governments ability to screw something up. It often times looks like corruption when it actually is just incompetence .

Yet they want to actually run more things in your life in the future

the rest of our healthcare system everything will work perfectly....until you actually need medical attention.

I understand the difficulties with the Pfizer vaccine (cool storage requirements) but the Moderna one is supposed to be a lot less logistics intensive. My in-laws got the Moderna shot last week - no negative side effects other than some soreness from where they got stuck with the needle.

And we’re also assuming the vaccine is even effective. Just wait til we start hearing stories of vaccinated people getting Covid.

My mind boggles every time I hear someone say we’re almost done with the virus, because there’s a vaccine now.
I hope they are right...but I’m not buying it.

If you over 65 and/or have 2 or more comorbidities get the shot. If you don’t run like ####. Shots were never tested on animals, no one knows there long term health effects, the shot, if effective is only good for a year. No one knows if it is effective on the other 50 mutations that have developed. Best thing you can do is stay/get healthy, wash your hands (mask don’t work), take vitamin D and eat a well rounded healthy diet.

All vaccines were tested on animals, they have to be to get approval. They were allowed to do phase 1 testing on humans while completing the tests on animals. This was done to save time, nothing was skipped they were just done simultaneously.

Long term health risks from vaccines are extremely rare. Side effects show up quickly. There is no way to know how long the effectiveness of vaccines last. Phase 2 recipients were only vaccinated about 7 or 8 months ago at best. We will find out how long it lasts.

So far there is no indication that the vaccines will not be effective with any of the mutations. Covid Sars 2 mutates slower than most viruses. Time will tell. Flu vaccines are often ineffective because of different stains. If you are worried about a vaccines effectiveness, it will always be more effective than not being vaccinated.

I'll be sure an tell my wife that masks don't work while she is treating covid patients. Heck she has been wearing masks her whole career, but the N95s are really rough to wear all day long.

Anything you do to reduce risk, reduces risk.

I went to several websites and the smaller

the site was, the simpler their system was. One small hospital reported that their weekly shipment for 2nd shots was guaranteed but they had to request amounts for 1st shots based on the number of people who had asked to be scheduled and then wait to see how many they would actually be allotted before they could schedule those first timers. So I guess the sites with big numbers for the first dose will continue to get more and the smaller places will have to stay small until supplies are greater.

T called the DHEC number to get what I thought was an appointment to receive our vaccination. They put me on hold for 2 Hrs. and 20 min. My wife and I took turns holding the phone. Someone finally answered and I said we needed appointment dates to receive the vaccine. She said they didn't do that and gave me a web site to go to. 2 Hrs. and 20 mins. to hear this. After telling her what I thought of their system, I hung up. DHEC dropped the ball badly on this one.

welcome to the beginning of socialize medicine and government control of health care! As a Trump Republican supporter, I will be labeled a domestic terrorist and will not be allowed any vaccine or even any health care.

to ensure that those who deserve to be vaccinated first get vaccinated first. It might make sense now but fast forward 10 or 20 years and see if you agree who gets healthcare first.

You might’ve missed it but socialized health has been going on for almost a century, it’s called the VA.

Also being a trump supporter doesn’t mean you are a domestic terrorist, just means you are either gullible or too angry to think logically.

Storming the capital building with weapons and murdering a police officer makes you a domestic terrorist.

Beaufort is a joke, Charleston is doing a great job. This Charlie Foxtrot is what happens with underfunded public health and the states are left to fend for themselves. Wife (healthcare) got it Saturday, the process was smooth in Charleston.

The distribution is a cluster.

This vaccine thing is a political cluster!
Who gets it has become a political battle.

In SC medical people came on line first. As supplies don't yet meet demand, I see that as good. People required to work in public for the good of all should be protected so they can help us.
After those who wanted it got a chance, they added in old folks as we tend to die. The vaccine does not keep well so any not distributed spoils. We need the lines full.

The deal is that it is very hard to sign up. Supplies are low, and distribution is about half of even what is available.

There is a distribution network already in place, the yearly flu shots. Why did they not use that? It is about politics and $$$$. One guy said use Chick-fil-la as they could have it out in days and give you a free cookie. I agree.

To get in line in SC one must have their medical provider or ?? send an "OK" to CDC. Then after going there, one must sign up for another an account at VANS. Then you have to wait until you get a notice to "apply" for an appointment. It is a lot of hoops and hurdles, many steps. I am reading from friends where they get almost there and get cancelled, so must start over. Why is it so complicated?
For folks not "above average" computer literate, telephone wait is hours and few get through.

It is a cluster!!
A guy like me can do it, but many, many are not able to do this.

New billionaires will be made off this. Billions will also be funneled back to politicians.
