Unused and spoiled vaccines being thrown out...

Meanwhile - a pharmacist that is friends of a friend of mine is basically asking around 3 PM each day for his network of friends to call their friends and he's giving unused doses on a first come first served basis so they don't go to waste. I don't live anywhere near this, so I'm not able to take advantage - but my friend and his wife have both had their first dose at this point.

Why do you think supply seems to be exceeding demand - at least in this case ??

Bad rollout plans

Or no plans at all. Is that on Trump? State governments? Local governments?

CVS opened a vaccination center in the lobby of the nursing home where his sister works. They had 30 doses left over at the end of the last day (Tuesday). His sister called him at 6:45pm. He went down immediately, and was the only one in the family that was able to make it—in fact, he was the only one there. I assume the rest were dumped.

My parents got theirs last week (over 65). They pulled up to the location. 6 parking spots were designated for vaccines. After waiting 10 minutes, they honked. The lady came out and apologized as they were the first people she's seen all day. They got their vaccines and left. No other cars there before, during, or after their shots.

Meanwhile the system is fully booked. Their location was fully booked. Yet no one there. People are taking as many slots as they can, and then showing up to the first one they can get and screwing everyone else.

My neighbor just got vaccinated for a similar reason. They didn't use a full amount and it was going to be wasted, so her boss just started to vaccinate anyone who wanted it. Screw the order.

I haven't tried yet - I didn't realize people could sign up

for more than one slot. Yeah - we can't have a system that depends on people "doing the right thing" - because they won't.

Some group of jokers in Ohio was serving certain nursing homes and let 800 doses go bad. I think they are being sued over this bungle

The Trump administration had no distribution plan.

frand got his vaccine - his gf is administering them, and once they're removed from temp control, they've got a relatively short 'shelf' life

they TRY to remove and use them as efficiently as possible, but can't help it sometimes...

so the other day, frand's gf calls him up at the end of the day all like "GETCHOAZZDOWNHERENOW"

and wah-lah, early vaccine

there's no issue.

Obviously we'd love to live in a world where every single dose gets utilized, but no one would actually think that would happen. 0.1% waste in PA, mostly from broken vials or damaged needles. No surprise. 300 doses discarded because of a bad refrigerator...that's not a shock. A couple doses discarded due to misunderstanding of state regulations. Just get that training up.

Once again, I believe the media is trying to create a narrative that we have some horrible problem with our roll out of this vaccine, and once again, I think this is false fearmongering. We are fine. We are not perfect. Other countries are not perfect. Certainly we want waste reports from each state...just like we want absolute clarity that the election was 100% legit. But all indications, in both cases, are that we are fine.

There is a lot of anecdotal evidence but no stats yet...

however, my point was more about encouraging those who are distributing the vaccine to come up with creative ways not to have to throw any away. Like some kind of first come first served system to distribute unused vaccine at the end of the day.

For sure. We can always do better.***

This is happening in FL too with all of the nursing homes.

Due to the way they are shipped there's overage frequently and they are giving them out first come first serve. One of my friends, a healthy 40 year old and her husband we able to get leftovers last night. She was blasted on facebook when she posted about it.

Meanwhile, I work in a very affluent community and people aren't having a hard time getting vaccines, including some through a physician who runs a charity/research organization and happens to have ultra cold storage.

I've been able to get my parents, some of their friends, and neighbors signed up.

It's a hard pill to swallow, admittedly knowing that economic status is playing a part in vaccine distribution in my community. I don't have the answers to how to fix the problem.
