At the individual level, how will this mass vaccination effort work?
The first few rounds of people to get vaccinated will be health-care workers, some essential jobs, and higher-risk individuals including the elderly. Health-case workers will be coordinated by their employers, but what about the rest? Will my elderly parents’ doctors contact them to schedule it? Do they make an appointment?
Fauci has predicted we start vaccinating the population at large in April, May, or June. Will people just show up and wait in long lines? Are there less-restrictive requirements each week, like today it’s anyone over 60, next week anyone over 55, etc.?
I assume these are the things that a competent administration would be planning right now. Are there standard practices or procedures we followed in the past for things like polio?
