 Have you heard that some vaccines are being thrown away because they do not have enough eligible people available to vaccinate within the time frame that the open package of vaccines is good? On NPR today, there was talk of these being thrown out!! Could there be a wait list type of thing where you can get a last minute call that if you get here within say 30-60 minutes, you could get a vaccine that might otherwise be discarded? I would be there in a nano second.
