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.

That thought had crossed my mind.
What ever you do, don't tell my mom.

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.

    • 1) Everyone is ignorant, since ignorance is the lack of knowledge. I am 100% ignorant in how viruses work. I know a small bit, but I don't know in detail enough to be able to speak on the subject.  2) When the facts show it is much more beneficial and safe to get the vaccine, in terms of your own health and in terms of the health of others, there is not much worth in having this difference of opinion. To me, it feels like you and others just want to be contrarian. When the facts are known to be as such, then it is expected to get some negative feedback from those who are correct in this regard. Though, it is a bit harsh to call someone uneducated and a moron. But, I think it is stupid to not get the vaccine unless you have a medical reason to do so.  Maybe not a moron, but definitely ignorant.  Also, do you respect the opinion of deplorable people? Come on, respecting everyones opinion is just not good for society. That is saying you respect the opinion of people like who commit horrible atrocities. Their opinion is they should be able to do so with out repercussions or are justified due to their religious doctrine. How can you respect that.  We are not talking about subjects like, what is the greatest football team of all time. This is about the validity of the vaccine (which it works stupidly well), and its utility for the safety of oneself and society (which is very high). These are facts. To say that I should respect the opinion of someone who doesn't believe in these facts, or has the opinion that they should disregard the vaccine. Yea, I am not respecting that opinion.  We are not talking about every discussion here. We are talking about this particular subject. So, don't try to generalize it.  Here is the thing, the facts are pretty clear here. All you have to say is, "Well, if I didn't have a family who pressured me, I wouldn't take the vaccine." That isn't a valid opinion. It is not based on anything but your gut feeling. It's like justifying that people who don't wear their seat belts are not idiots. They are 100% idiots for not wearing a seat belt. Seat belts reduce injuries and fatalities by over 55%. Not wearing a seat belt is just idiocy.  Well, the use of ignorant in this way is wrong.  You know the facts of the vaccine (I presume) since you are responding to this thread. If not, then you are ignorant since you lack the knowledge of the vaccine.  To have an opinion, not based on facts is to me idiotic.  Oh, I am 100% ignorant in many subjects. One of my college professors said the first day, "You are all ignorant people". Then he described what ignorance means. I went from almost being pissed off to thinking he's right. I am an ignorant person. I lack knowledge. I am not all knowing.  
    • I never cared for Rory, not sure exactly why. I really wouldn't get  excited to play a golf round with him. 
    • I finished reading LSW this morning...what a great and comprehensive book! I'll be reading it again, starting with the "Decision Mapping" and "Game Planning" sections. Frankly, before I spend much time on Shot Mapping, however, my swing has to get more consistent than it is now, or it will be a challenge to find much meaningful information, LOL. Regarding the latter point, using SVs has definitely lead me to focus on what skills are most important to practice. Specifically, I am focusing on Full Swing Motion shots (after spending the early part of 2021 focused on Short Game Motions shots and "Bead" putting drills) with Driver (get the ball in play as far as I can), Hybrids and irons (improve accuracy of approach shots) and Speed control for putts >= 25'. I will also be taking an AimPoint lesson in the near future.  Great stuff!
