Getting the Covid vaccine out is apparently a lot more complicated than you might think. First, you have to get the doses out to the counties. Then decide who goes first. For instance, should it be the elderly or should it be teachers. Those teachers need it before you can reopen the schools, but the elderly are more likely to die if they get the coronavirus. Then there are the small things, like if I sign up for a shot, but then decide my wife or husband or cousin needs it more, can they take my assigned spot? As for that last question: Health officials in Alamance County say as long as that other person qualifies, they have no problem with you giving up your spot to them. Some other counties say no, you cannot do that.
A quick update for you from the Alamance County Health Department. They say there are a little more than 1,000 people in isolation right now. 42 of those in the hospital. Also they say there have been 213 deaths in Alamance County they attribute to the coronavirus. All of that out of a population of more than 170,000.
