I've only been to Memphis once.  It was 20 years ago.  The thing I recall most is that in most cities when you drive into a bad neighborhood, you usually pass through it in five minutes.  In Memphis, the bad neighborhood goes on for 45 minutes.

I drove through once, went to "memphis' oldest cafe" and it sucked. Bought the shirt as a joke though.

Two questions
Why not first stick some before trashing. Like literally just randomly poke someone. Before trashing vac.

Second question why do I even have to ask the first question

Third question: How much can you get away with charging people who otherwise aren't prioritized for vaccine after you "accidentally" prepare an extra bottle every day?

This just goes to prove even more that Memphis is the armpit of Tennessee.

Some TN doctor goes around poking random people and they're a hero and all. I poke some randos and had to attend court ordered therapy.

They need to take lessons from West Virginia.

Actually, most states, should take lessons from West Virginia.

Vaccinations were still being delivered in Shelby County, according to the state health department's website.

I saw one person say that the most important lesson to take from West Virginia is about the detrimental effects of the last few decades of mergers-and-acquisitions among pharmacies and pharmaceutical distributors:

The county is not the city.  Memphis is doing a good job.  And yes, stay out of Memphis.  If you have to come here stay in the Bass Pro and only eat at restaurants on Beale St. or west of Kirby Parkway.  You know what don't come west of Germantown Parkway.  You don't want to eat at Frank Grisanti's or Owen Brennan's.  In fact don't come here, you should go to Nashville, we don't want you clogging up our limited low-quality services with your whiney saltine loving selves.

Memphis is definitely much better than Nashville.  Nashville is like an entire city based on the concept of a mall that only hosts bachelorette parties.

So here's the thing ... until a month ago, they were basically sending vaccines to mostly red states and others that sucked up to Il Duce.   So how about now we just send them to blue states and see what happens?   I know, I know ... send the to everyone is the Biden plan and it should be a good plan.   But c'mon.   It's time for national triage here.   Just sayin.

Trump et al stole protective gear from blue urban areas and gave it to red rural ones.

Prove he didn't do the same with vaccines.

He was out of office shortly after the vaccines even became available, do he'd have no ability to do so.

Also, you're asking to have a negative proven when the thing that you're saying happened would be major national news if it actually happened.

No states have disputed the vaccine statistics posted by the CDC. Those numbers currently indicate 29,337 vaccine doses have been distributed per 100k population to states that voted for Biden, and 28,526 doses per 100k population to states that voted for Trump.

Healthy rich people are scamming shots from food banks, did they get free food too, who knows?
Thousands of people can't find an apply for their second shot.
Meanwhile I have lupus and can't get a shot. Who knows when they'll get to me or how many people will scam the city that happens.
It's a complete and utter failure.
