My mom has a legitimate question. I am not sure if this is true in all areas, but it is here in New York. The ONLY way one can find out if you are eligible for a vaccine and sign up to get one is online. You can't walk in somewhere, make a phone call, or fill out paperwork and mail it.
I am of course helping her navigate this, as she is not capable of doing this herself. She wants to know why she can't just walk to the pharmacy like she did for a flu shot. She doesn't understand why she can't get it from her doctor. She is a narcissist and can't understand that 99.9% of the people who want a vaccine are going to have to wait awhile, even if they are in the groups who are already eligible.
Her legitimate question in all this is how do people who do not have Internet access, or are unable to navigate the online process, and have no one to do it for them, getting signed up for the vaccine?
