Remember the good old days (last March) when we thought this would all be over by the summer? Well yesterday I checked back in with my GP to ask if there was any update about the Covid vaccinations in Sevilla. As in WHEN THE FUCK WERE WE GOING TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT WHEN WE’D BE GETTING THEM. And he said, nope. Nobody knows nuthin. Not even him. There is no programme in place for letting the public know when they will be able to get vaccinated.
This is so disheartening. Especially when it seems like our government, while totally fucking up vaccine distribution, is probably going to be promoting tourism – and more contagion – this summer. Because you know the whole Let’s Save Christmas thing went so well, with a (predictable) massive spike in new cases and deaths mid-January. Why not Save Summer and kill more disposable people too? Honestly, I despair.
It truly looks at this point that there will be nothing even closely resembling “our old lives” until next spring. Because, a bit like painting the Forth Bridge, once everyone is vaccinated, they are going to have to start all over again with the next round (which will hopefully run more smoothly).
Meanwhile? Well, do you have any plans? Other than NOT going on holiday?
I guess I’m just gonna be right here. Like H have been since last March.
Our state started what seemed like a promising rollout and I got e-mail from the local government providing a link where I could sign up, but I never got confirmation e mail (the Engineer, two weeks later, did) and then we heard that the vaccine supply was short of what they thought they’d have. Now it seems as if it’s ground to a screeching halt, though we get updates that X number of people have been vaccinated and X amount of the available supply has gotten into people’s arms. But they’re still on people over 75 and health care workers. There’s a Federal government partnership with pharmacy chains, and when I got mail about that, by the time I red it and went to register, they were booked out. Beats me.
