Vaccine tourists

Recommended Posts

2020 saw protest tourists travelling all around to cause mayhem. 2021 is seeing vaccine tourists.

From across the country to around the world well to do people are travelling for Covid vaccine to and across the USA. Just another reason for FDA to approve Ivermectin now for Americans to bridge the time until vaccine is accessible, imo.

Vaccines are technically federal property that don’t belong to any one locality, making residency requirements hard to enforce.... More than 37,000 out-of-staters have received COVID-19 shots in Florida...In Illinois, about 14,000 people from out of state were vaccinated. About 59,000 who received the shot in New York City and 22,150 who got the shot in Washington, D.C., weren’t residents.

A story on CNYcentral.com mentioned the NYS Fair Expo center being used as a mass vaccination site for CNY residents only:

The Fairgrounds vaccine site will open Wednesday. Appointments can be made on the state's website HERE.

Anyone living in the CNY region who qualifies in group 1a or 1b will be able to get vaccinated at either site. The region includes Onondaga, Oswego, Cayuga, Madison and Cortland counties.

So, they can restrict, and yet we have Syracuse people coming here?

“You should never have added seven million people without any kind of assurance that you would get seven million doses, right? Because now you have people competing for this like it’s the Hunger Games,” comments Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin.

Counties, hospitals, and pharmacies all got new directions from New York State limiting who they can vaccinate as supply comes close to running out. Even though those in the 1B category are technically eligible, distributors have now been ordered to only focus on 1A groups — hospitals on health care workers, counties on emergency responders, and pharmacies on those over the age of 75.

The statewide Point of Delivery sites are open to all, vaccine is provided by Feds, administration by NYS.  The reference to specific counties in the article tells people in those counties that they CAN participate, not that others cannot - although it may have been carefully worded to discourage “interlopers”.  “Syracuse People” are both US and NYS residents and taxpayers.  If anything it shows that Binghamton’s allocation was too much compared to more populated areas.  “I got mine” is a bad look - and I’m glad you reconsidered the NYC description.

I think it’s good that they’re focusing on getting 1a covered before losing control with 1b...although I’ve only seen that one source.

Just think , if the looney left get their way the lines and trouble you see now trying to get the covid vaccine shots will be like trying to get everything else. I remember seeing videos of people in russia and other communist countries standing in line for bread and other essentials. look at the way the dems have this country going by putting Washington under basically military control with troops in the street. Wake up  America before it's too late, your city could be next.

Those of us on BCVoice are aware. 

Most people are like the frog in the pot on the stove.  Increase the temperature slowly and they don't notice they are getting cooked.
