While 50 individuals were admitted into the parking lot for their shots, police had to turn away dozens of curious residents who were not able to register for an appointment.

  • Here's a novel idea...use the voter registration rolls to give out the shots, instead of an online competition.   Resident birth dates are on record; call those residents over 76 years old and invite them to get a vaccine.  Aren't we doing it backwards?    If I may, these photos of young and vital retirees getting shots in their Audi convertibles is a bit off-putting.  They certainly know how to work the website...  Am I the only one that feels this way?
