"The rubber will meet the road when the county identifies a site that can handle more than 10,000 shots a day" , are you kidding me?? A site than can meet 10,000 shots a day? How about Levi's Stadium, Great America, Google parking lots, Shoreline Amphitheatre, College campuses, the possibilities are ENDLESS' staffed by the many medical professionals, not on the front lines. The rubber should have met the road well before the vaccine was approved. It is truly ridiculous. California is one of the WORST performing states.. Web Link

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

" 'I know it's a big lift to collect and coordinate these plans, but the public shouldn't be sitting around wondering when and where they can be vaccinated as they were with testing,' Simitian said. 'And time is of the essence. We can't afford to lose a month; we can't afford to lose a week; we can't afford to lose a single day.'"

Can't afford to lose a single day, eh? So what the heck have you been doing the past 10 months? Good try trying to pass the buck. It's your fault! Time to get a job your competent at. Meanwhile Cody is posting videos to the Santa Clara County website "recommending" face masks and crying when people aren't wearing them. Web Link

"I know it's a big lift to collect and coordinate these plans...."

Are you freaking kidding me? A "big lift?" It should have been done six months ago so that we didn't have vaccine sitting on the shelf now and no way to distribute it. OMG do your jobs!!
