Please don't let this misinformation 'confirm your suspicions' without actually doing your own research. I know many people in Santa Barbara working at small clinics or in the field who have already received their vaccination (as of last week) thanks to Cottage.

Thank you for confirming my suspicions. This is infuriating. We need new leadership, accountability and a watchdog.

The population of Santa Barbara County is 447,218, and Dr. Van Do-Reynoso hopes to vaccinate 5,000 people by the end of the month. Everyone should be outraged by this plan. We need to ramp up the amount of vaccines purchased and distribute them quickly and equitably.

Where is the urgency? What are we waiting for? More bodies to pile up in the morgues? The incompetence is, quite literally, breathtaking.

Cottage claims to have vaccinated more than 2,900 employees representing 2/3 of their staff, from a Jan 6 Noozhawk article. There is also a good percentage with a good percentage refusing to be vaccinated. According to their website they employee 3,500 people. Given these numbers they are certainly vaccinating more than just the front line works covered in 1A.

It's Cronyism 101. Where's the watchdog? There are reports from the rest of the country that vaccines are being distributed improperly. How do we know it's not happening here? The lack of transparency, obfuscation and the slowness of the distribution borders on the criminal.

Obviously there is no urgency in administering the vaccine. They are hoarding the vaccines and appear to be more interested in shaming and blaming the general public.

Cottage is ordering for Cottage and related; who's ordering vaccines for the rest of Santa Barbara? What's going to be the charge/vaccine for the general public?
