Vaccine Appointments Now Available for Emergency Services Workers, Grocery Workers, and Phase 1A Health Care Workers

Very happy to have essential workers getting shots, but without vaccine supplies, won't it get more difficult for all of us to schedule? . Have been on 4 sites (State, Cottage, Samsun,and MyTurn) for over a month. A friend will call and say, "hurry up there are appointments at CVS in .... Bakersfield ..... or Buellton ... or Ventura...etc). Friends up all night looking for appointments. But by the time it is checked out, after all the personal data goes in, the last word is "no vaccines available." After at least 20 times at this, it is getting old.
