Coronavirus vaccine immunizations

Send a link to a friend  Share

To the editor:

Recently I booked an appointment for my first coronavirus vaccine shot March 13th in Springfield, Sangamon County. My friends tipped me to its website, which filled appointment slots quickly.

Illinois has totally botched its coronavirus vaccine shot administration. March 13th is 6 weeks hence. Zero appointments in Logan County are available.

Monday morning, the day Illinois vaccine shots first became available to Groups 1A and 1B, I phoned the Logan County Department of Public Health at 735-2317.

[to top of second column in this letter]

A gal rather rudely told me to go to its website or its Facebook page, donít call the Logan County Department of Public Health again because itís too bizzy to hassle with the public which pays its publik wurkr salaries, its vaccine appointment website has crashed, all appointments for the two February days, the 13th and the 17th, are booked, she didnít know when next appointments would be available, Logan County only received 340 total vaccine doses, donít call back.

Thatís ďtotally botchedĒ.
