How long do you want to ignore this user?
Just got a cancellation notice from St. Joseph's for my second dose which was scheduled for Monday. Bumped back 2 weeks.

Also, my wife got he first at Mature Well about 10 days ago. When she was asked to schedule her second dose, the days she was given, she will be out of town. How does she get a second shot scheduled?

Any advise?

Were you given a reason for the cancellation? Was this for an appointment at St. Joseph hospital or at their MatureWell facility?

My guess is that it is because Brazos county only got 2,000 doses this week and they were maybe expecting 5,000 like last week.

Hope this isn't going to be an ongoing issue. Despite what the CDC and various political entities have been saying, Pfizer and Moderna are warning against stretching the shots out past their tested limits.

As for the 2,000, what a joke (especially as Washington County is getting 3,000).

They said they didn't get enough and cancelled all at Mature Well for Monday according to their email. Already rescheduled.

Got the following response about the website error:
Quote:

Unfortunately, it appears that there are no available appointments at this time. We recommend you check the registration site regularly for any new potential available appointments to appear in the appointment drop down list. Vaccination appointment times are limited due to the availability of the vaccines we have been provided by the state. We appreciate your patience.

Update: tried the link again today, and it said my appointment was confirmed even though I had not selected a date or time. Also said I would receive an email confirmation. No email confirmation was received.

Seems like incompetence now. Does anybody know how to make a plan and adjust it as necessary? Or communicate? The website hasn't been updated since December. It's like our leaders have never dealt with any adversity in their lives, and have no idea what to do when something doesn't go according to plan.

The difference is Washington County has shown the ability to crank out 2,000 to 3,000 doses per day with no webpage "hiccups" (incompetence) or other issues.

Maybe, but I've heard people outside BCS complaining about Central Texas getting the screwgee in regards to vaccine allocations as well.

Yeah central texas got screwed because the west texas gop mafia have no shame in making sure they get theirs. Lubbock and Amarillo got 10's of thousands more vaccines than other similarly populated areas.

Brazos Co. totally dropped the ball initiating this thing is the reason for the lack of vaccine. This is according to drs. visited recently. They echoed each other.

A family member the dental field received their 2nd dose yesterday also.

So at risk people are going to be punished for something they had no control over? How long is this vaccine "exile" going to last?

This is 100% due to Brazos County's complete ineptitude. They did this to themselves. Other counties are being rewarded for efficiency and organization.

Was warned by my PCP 10days ago this might happen due to federal interference in distribution process. He was not concerned with being on the outside of receiving 2nd dose window. Said too soon was not good but later OK.

Haven't seen an e-mail yet, but we are looking to get one.... darned bureaucrats and Peter's Principle.

What day was your appointment? My husband has an appointment for Thursday for his 2nd dose at MatureWell and, as of now, no email about postponing it.

I believe the Mature Well location has a different allocation.

I hope so, but this quote from the KBTX story makes me think it will be postponed:

Quote:

St. Joseph also said in a press release anyone scheduled for their second vaccine dose at St. Joseph Health MatureWell, the Bryan hospital, or College Station hospital should look for an email rescheduling their appointment.

They told me that they were only rescheduling Monday at this point. I received a phone call since I hadn't opened the email very quickly. I was kicking myself for saying "soonest available" when they asked to schedule the second dose. They said they got some but not all, and that at this point they are only issuing 2nd doses at MatureWell and are no longer doing first doses. I had also planned on taking Mon- Wed off and being lazy since I will probably feel crummy. That plan backfired.

Any explanation from the state as to why we got less doses? Kind of ridiculous for them to say "we'll give you more doses the more people you vaccinate" so we finally establish a pretty well-run hub, increase our vaccination rate by a lot, and in return they drop us to less doses the next week...makes no sense

Again, just how long will this period of atonement last? When will the prodigal son be allowed back in the fold?

We know the issues already, as we've *****ed about them nonstop here since the first of the year, so tell us something we don't know. By most accounts, the hub appeared to run well. Sure, there were some computer glitches with online registration, but then there are always software glitches with any system set up on the fly. Are things perfect? No, but how long will Brazos County be forced to ride the pine until authorities deem them worthy of receiving more vaccines?

The idea that local at-risk citizens must pay for the past mistakes of others is beyond comprehension.

I think most places got a surge in doses last week due to excess vaccine returned due to nursing homes that did not require as many as thought, and then fell back down. It was a one-time influx of 125,000 doses that got distributed as a result. Not saying that is the whole explanation, but I think it's part of it

I was set for Monday, at MatureWell. I got an email rescheduling it to the 17th now.

The big question comes, what if that gets rescheduled?!?

I have zero faith in this process at this point. ZERO.

They've already established at the state level that Brazos county is run by a bunch of Bozos who can't pour pee out of a boot if the instructions were on the heel. I doubt this will get changed in the near term.

Maybe they'll be better prepared for the next emergency.

Manyresidents are going to neighboring counties, who are well run, like Washington County.

Problem is a lot of elderly don't have transportation to neighboring counties. Also, if one were to have a medical emergency following a shot, being on the road away from your PCP and your medical records could be problematic.

Another problem is that the CDC told everyone to burn their second dose reserves, as more would arrive in plenty of time when those came due. Now that no longer seems to be the case.

The people of the Brazos County are beginning to now know how it feels to be a chicken caught in a tractor's nuts.

I WOULD say, "you get what you pay for," but in Brazos county that sure doesn't seem to be the case.

maybe the other old maxim... "you get the government you deserve," is more applicable.

it's like the blind leading the imbeciles at this point. I mean, we are high fiving that the county can be half as good a Washington county (~1000/day vs. 2000/day) in getting the job done... think about that...

When our local authorities can give out 200 shots per hour with no messed up emails, no messed up sign ups, no unused doses, etc.

Washington County did 4000/day last Tuesday and is scheduled to do 3000/day next week.

The point is someone living in Bryan shouldn't have to drive to Brenham when they have a perfectly good site a couple of minutes from home.
