Source of the post I bet there are people who have set up bots.
100%, I would be doing this if it came to it.
One of the sites you have to prove you're not a robot.
I think it was Sam's club.

COVID-19

Today is the first day since January 11 when the 7-day average of new US COVID daily cases increased on Worldometer. During the 41 declining days, the daily cases dropped from 255,311 to 69,235, i.e. by 72.9%.

It's mind-boggling to me that this was achieved without any wide-spread lockdowns, with significant parts of the US being pretty much open, with no hospital collapses... All while large parts of Europe have been in a shut-down mode for months...

[And just to clarify - I am happy, but almost uncomfortable seeing that "do nothing" approach works. I'd like to say that hopefully it is the "universal indoor mask mandate" (which, say, my state follows) - but then I see how many people in neighboring state of Missouri did not wear masks (because it's just recommendation there)...]
I think there's a bit of self selection going on. I think the numbers we saw from a few months back represents the absolute peak for cases in this country. The holidays were the only time large swaths of people were willing to expand their bubbles and ignite the spread. I think we have naturally adapted into a routine where a sizeable chunk of the population just doesn't see anyone in close contact aside from the people in their household / small bubble.
Maybe that could account for East or West (?), but this is what I see in Midwest: restaurants open, sports hangouts open, 4,000 spectators at every college basketball game, elementary schools - mostly open, universities - significant portions of F2F delivery (>50% courses in our case), university students absolutely not caring about "bubbles" (why should they - 900+ of them got Covid in 3 days in September). In Missouri big groups of people in indoor settings (wilderness museum center) without masks. AND Arkansas down by almost 90% in terms of Covid cases. Missouri slightly less, but still a substantial decline. Hospitals work perfectly fine.

Meanwhile my friends in my old homeland have their news telling them how hospitals are collapsing, doctors make "Sophie's choice" decisions, and if you show up on a street without a mask (BTW double masks or respirators mandatory starting this Thursday) - you are creating new Chernobyl... Stores, schools, etc closed mostly since October...

I just don't know why counties arent doing it themselves. One registry. ship all vaccines to one/few locations throughout the county, and every day have X number of people come in. Why so de-centralized?

Has anyone actually been successful in getting an appointment via an online registration at places like Rite Aid, Sam's Club and Giant Eagle?
We were told to the Rite Aid around midnight.
That's what I was wondering, when their appointment times open up. I guess they probably won't until they receive the vaccine shipments.
I got RiteAid at 11:50pm. Got on at 11:30 and just kept refreshing the locations near me. Ours are only releasing a day at a time and they only vaccinate 5 days per week, so there were two days that didn’t have anything released. (ie they weren’t injecting on 3/7 and 3/8 so when I was trying for two nights in a row, nothing came up, but on the third night 3/9 came up and the next night 3/10 came up.)

All of that was rendered moot by by NJ State DOH registration which got me a MegaSite shot this morning when it opened up appointments yesterday.

Hahaha
That's an increase of almost 70% since we took office just over a month ago.
It’s weird. When supply from the manufacturer goes up, supply to the consumer also goes up...

Is this economics?

Hey, so long as the Biden vaccine continues this pace, that’s all that matters.

Yeah, do they have some magic powers or something?

I would certainly hope it's going up and not down.

11:55 the Rite Aid scheduling system refreshed with a new batch of appointments for next Tuesday. Tons of locations. Need to be specific about the location you’re selecting because not every location that’s available in search had appointments (nothing in the Mars-Cranberry area for instance). Hermitage, Allison Park, Carnegie, Murray Ave., and Howley St. were locations we looked at and booked for family and friends and self.

I'm a fairly healthy dude.. give me this one. I'll take around 70% protection in a single shot. Let others who are more high risk get pfizer/moderna.

Clicked on the time, clicked next, and it said "someone has already taken that time" or something. It doesn't hold it for a minute or two
