If you can’t get in to these appointments, try the general My Turn site, and see if there’s a spot at one of the regular venues. I’m getting mine this evening at Sansum. Just made the appointment yesterday, after failing to score one at the Hilton event.

My Turn is set up poorly. If you go to their site and start the sign in process again, you can get to the page where you can now find appointments. Badly designed website, but I did get my appointment.

Go to the regular My Turn site and sign in, even if you’ve done that before. They will show you where the vaccines are available. Choose a location and sign up for one of those, at a local pharmacy or Sansum. Those have short or no lines, from my experience.
