There was some comments previously about "non-appointment" shots at the BC.

Statement on the new sign-up site:

Quote:

Please note: the Brazos Hub does not offer walk-in vaccinations. All individuals must have a confirmed appointment.

Edit: On a side note, adding the educators / child care to the 1B group added 6,083 people to the county. The 1A&B groups already had 86,500 people. So not much of a change for people already waiting for an appointment.

Rationing.

i understand what the policy is. I relayed what was actually happening, on occasion. I also added the proviso that it was third hand information..

I think individual volunteers are telling people that they need people to come in. Those volunteers, however, aren't in any way in charge of how the entire system is set up. They just know they have no shows and available doses.

I don't expect they do but I wonder if Brazos Co has a system in place to call people who are still waiting to see if they could come in on short notice to get it. I know there are other counties doing that.

Yeah, I'm sure they probably can't officially say "walk-ins welcome!"

agree with you both.

also good to hear this morning on WTAW that the waiting list should be resolved by the end of the week.

If you want a vaccine Go to https://brazoshub.com/ and schedule an appointment. They have sent out an email to all those in 1B and there are still appointments available.

If you are overweight you are at high risk. If you have any heart or lung issues you are at high risk. If you are over 40 you have even a tiny degree of heart disease probably. Lets get more shots in arms and get this over with.

The more shots we give the more shots we'll receive and the sooner we will get back to normalcy.

Are they doing any second doses today or just the end of the week? Three people know that were originally supposed to get theirs late last week or early this week got rescheduled to this Thursday and Friday.

Amen. The CDC announced fully vaccinated people can more or less begin returning to normal.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/fully-vaccinated-individuals-can-socialize-without-masks-distancing-cdc-says/ar-BB1en7Il

Quote:

Americans who have received the full COVID-19 vaccine can gather with vaccinated grandparents or friends without wearing masks or keeping their distance, according to new CDC guidance announced Monday, and those grandparents can visit with and hug family members that aren't vaccinated as long as they don't have underlying medical conditions that put them at high risk for COVID-19.

But getting the vaccine does not mean you should travel or gather in large groups, according to the CDC, which says vaccinated individuals should still stick to guidance

The CDC says individuals who are fully vaccinated -- meaning two weeks after they have received the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine -- can safely gather around friends or family who are also vaccinated indoors without masks or social distancing, as well as visit with friends or family from a single household who aren't vaccinated but have a low risk of severe disease from COVID-19.
Climate change is natural.

To answer my own question, the latest KBTX article about the hub says, "it will do the first-dose shots at the beginning of the week and second-dose shots at the end".

They don't need your SSN in order to register the vaccination. Just a name and DOB. I don't give mine out unless necessary either.

Just got scheduled for Saturday as well. From their FAQ page:


At this time, we are receiving an allocation of the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines which have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use authorization and recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Experts recommend getting the first vaccine that is available to you. Please continue to check our website for information on which BSWH sites will be administering which vaccine.

Yes and no.

There's a higher chance of still contracting Covid with J&J BUT it still prevented moderate to severe illness and hospitalization.

Plus J&J is a single shot instead of two with Moderna or Pfizer.

95% (mRNA vaccine 2 dose) vs 65% roughly.

I highly suspect that the duration of immunity for J&J will not be anywhere near the mRNA vaccines.

Just a positive shout-out to the Brazos county HUB. Very organized and efficiently run.
The Texas State guard was exceptional as were all the volunteers. Got 3 of us vaccinated with the first dose today and it went like a dream. Even had a wheelchair for my elderly mother.

Texans 50 and older eligible for COVID-19 vaccine next week

FInally. I am weary of 20 year olds I work with getting the vaccine due to "health conditions" when I am late 50's and don't qualify. The email I got from Brazos Hub said I was on the "waiting list", hopefully they will contact me to get vaccine next week.

I had the Johnson and Johnson vaccine injection today at The Physicians Center on University Drive in Bryan. Only one injection required. People over 65 were in there getting the shot. Everything went off without a hitch. No side effects.

I assure you there are many 20 year olds with significant health conditions that are much higher risk of severe COVID than a healthy late 50s.

Idk if its helpful for others but a friend of mine told me to go to vacinefinder.org to find local places besides the hub to get a shot. She told me walmart resets their appointments for the next week at like midnight, CVS does it at 6am. I just logged on when I woke up for work one morning at 6 and was able to secure an appointment at Navasota Walmart for a week later. Just got my first of the moderna vaccine yesterday process was easy and the staff were friendly.

Walmart pharmacies have a list to prevent wasted doses. You can call and get on that list and they will call you if they have doses that would go to waste. My college kids got their first shots that way today.
