    In California everyone whose employer has 25 or more employees gets 80 hours of covid related sick time, including for vaccinations or caring for a loved one, that can be used anytime between 1/1/21 and 9/31/21.

    I can see you feel strongly about this because you posted the same thing twice.

    The vaccine was supposed to be free but if you have to provide your own transportation it"s not. If I did not have a car to get to the mass vaccination sites our governor keeps pushing people to use it would cost hundreds of dollars in taxi fares each time, since there is now no single dose vaccine available. Local health departments invested in freezers so they could vaccinate people and then the Dictator took their vaccines away. Employers of essential workers like my employer signed contracts to purchase vaccines for their workers, to be administered by a registered nurse, and then the Dictator took our vaccines away. Now some people say we should also give up two days pay to get vaccinated. That is not how free works.

    Its CDC guidance being used. I know you like to blame Charlie, but really, he's following the science and caution. Also, the Janssen vaccine doesn't need to be held at those cold temperatures. If you're going to continually complain, you could at least get your facts correct.

    This reminds me of dozens of discussions here over the years, what I want should be free and if it's not completely free then I am not respected and this is a terrible place to live. I think it's silly but I guess if there's any place for it, it's here.

    These populations are being strongly encouraged to get vaccinated. I've had some very happy patients this past week with these health challenges. They wished they could have been at the front of the line given their risk if they had contracted covid.

    Dude, they don't even give you a meal allowance for getting the vaccination!

    What sort of hellhole is this?

    But at least people can bring snacks and water to the people waiting in line without getting arrested.
