Yes, Virginia, there is a Vaccineaclaus?

Did you get a bobcat instead of the office chair?

Oh man, I forgot about the old XP-style theme Amazon had for a while.

I wonder how many logistics companies were brought in to help design the vaccine rollout. Delivery of vaccines to sites is important, but just as important is delivery of people to those sites to get the shot.

It seems like one of the major bottlenecks is that it's not clear to anyone how to get on a waiting list, or what phase they're expected to get the vaccine in, or where they can go to get the shot. My elderly mother who lives alone is eligible, but she was told by her primary care provider that she can't get her first dose until the end of March and can't even schedule a second dose.

Washington could have contracted with Amazon or any of the other logistics companies around here to plan the rollout, including a working registration site and a flood of television spots directing people to the right resources. So far it's mostly been health care workers and people working in group homes who have had access to the vaccine, but as the distribution grows wider, I wonder if the system will hold up under that weight.

I couldn't pass up the offer, so ordered mine on wish.com. I can wait a few weeks and I'm hopeful the quality will be about the same.

Huh.  I didn't know she worked for Amazon.

Some of my Amazon stuff gets delivered by USPS, but I was still unnerved by my postman waving a syringe at me.

Say 'lube' 20 times fast.  Then you'll know what color it is.

And remember, if you order the Moderna the postman always stings twice.

Subby, are you sure you didn't order the Tvåtusen from Ikea?

That's gotta be like half the US.

So that pinch in the nuts was just the vaccination?

Putting a dent in the unvaccinated numbers, I do say.
