Poor implementation, especially when you consider those at most risk might be the least mobile people. It would be hard to get the people to the clinics to give them the shots. I wonder how many people refused the shots as well. I also wonder if states just wanted to get as many vaccines as possible. Its not hard to see a number like that. 

I do not know all details but my father is in assisted living and all we did was sign the release and someone came to the complex and did all residents on the same day then came back for the 2nd round.  No need to travel or make appt.

I do not know how many, if any, refused the shots.

Aside from very mild tenderness at the injection site I have had no side effects at all to the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

I'm very envious you were able to get vaccinated.

Me too. 🙂

My parents got both doses of the Pfizer vaccine and neither of them had any issues at all, aside from mild soreness around the vaccination site. 

My mom is allergic to everything and has pretty much no immunity. She feels great. Personally, I think its just because its such a huge load off her mind.

Ohio is STILL one of the worst states. I can't believe the other day they were bragging that 79% of the vaccines were getting used. I was like "HEY, DOESN'T THAT MEAN WE ARE WASTING 21%?"

I don't think that "wasting 21%" is the correct interpretation of that number. It just means that 79% of the doses shipped to the state have made their way into people's arms already. The rest are still being assigned to the counties, various health systems, etc... and are in reserve for the appointments being made right now. When people don't show up (as when they double book, etc...), the few doses that risk being wasted because they have already thawed out and need to be used in the next few hours are given to people on standby lists, or sometimes counties call up county employees nearby.  Anybody getting a dose, even out of the normal order of priority is better than throwing doses away.

In California that number started around 33% (meaning 67% was not "used" yet), but it wasn't wasted doses, it was just inefficient allocations and vaccination centers, lack of staff, bad appointments systems, etc... The number has climbed to around 82% even though the total number of doses shipped (to the state) has gone from about 2 million to about 10 million doses between those 2 measurements. It does not mean that just under 2 million doses are being wasted right now. It just means the distribution of doses and actual vaccinations is doing a bit better than a couple months ago! But it could be better still...

I have no problems with people getting the vaccines. If a hospital has them and they're going to expire, stick them in whomever is available.

I 100% agree. Don't waste a drop. 

We have to get to 65% to 80% of folks vaccinated. We aren't going to get there by throwing the vaccines in the trash.

I hope you are correct. That would make me feel a lot better.

Okay, I went back and researched this and I owe everyone a huge apology. 

I WAS WRONG.

What @sjduffers said is correct. I heard the stat on the radio and misinterpreted it. My bad. My bad. The "official" waste for Ohio at this time stands around 180 doses. It's hard to say how accurate that is, but certainly it's more accurate than what I thought. Please forgive me. I misheard or misunderstood or was just plain stupid.

Or, of course, Chicago Public schools.

    • This is a situation in which the Committee could have (should have?) defined the downed tree as GUR, in which case you would have been able to take free relief.  In my group of friends, we'd probably play it as GUR in a casual game.  Otherwise, a completely detached fallen tree is a loose impediment, you could have moved it (if possible) or even broken off part of it in order to make a swing.  If its still attached to the roots, you simply cannot do anything about it. But a question, in taking Unplayable Ball relief, couldn't you have gone back on the line and found a place where you could swing?  You don't have to take Lateral Relief and stay within 2 clublengths.
    • Last year some serious wind took down a tree and it was laying horizontally. Played that course a lot, for golf reasons, that day was the first time I ever hit one anywhere near that tree. Because of course it was.  It was under the fallen trunk/branches so much that even after taking an unplayable and relief I had no swing. It felt really dirty but the guy I was playing with said the fallen tree didn't have any option for free relief and since I had not realized it was under the tree from the box, and did not want to do the walk of shame on the first tee with multiple groups waiting...ugh. Sometimes the rules feel penal, but then I remember I am the one who made the sub-optimal swing in the first place. 
    • Too bad we lost Ned Beatty. He would’ve been good.
    • Jonah Hill would be my pick. 
    • We are entitled to nothing from Tiger and that is what we will get. Tiger's branding is strong and a non-statement is probably his best strategy.  As taxpayers, we are entitled to whatever accident reports and investigations were done by the public agency under the public records laws of California.
