Just set up drive thru vaccination sites at Levy’s, Shoreline, Great America, Stanford, Google parking, Avaya. Etc etc. we KNEW this was coming. County has had 10 MONTHS to plan. This is not rocket science. Supervisors are creating bureaucracy!!

I think getting these big health plans to share some information would be great. The various sites that are opening up over 65 vaccinations are saying that people covered by Kaiser and PAMF are not eligible to be vaccinated there (i.e. see El Camino website and Santa Clara health department vaccination information), but Kaiser still has no information available ... number listed by county for Kaiser members to call is just their general appointments telephone tree. Over 75 members are not getting emails on how to make appointments, let alone over 65...maybe PAMF is doing more. For flu vaccinations, Kaiser had dedicated website to make appointments, but no clues whether they will do it for covid vaccinations or what they plan...

CA's response has been reprehensible. After frontline medical workers and nursing home residents have their chance, send 90% of the vaccinations to CVS and Walgreens. They will distribute for free since it will lead to increased foot traffic in their stores.

They had nine months to prepare. They knew we had to hit the ground running, but they spent the time pointing fingers at Washington and playing political games. Gee, do you think maybe we should have a VACCINE PLAN by now? Dr. Sara Cody should resign. There is no excuse for this dereliction of duty.

The buck stops with Cody and Smith. They are in charge. They had months to get their acts together. Maybe cody should spend less time checking to make sure businesses have 20 pieces of paper on their windows and get to work on this. And she can stop wasting time crying
