Poo poo. The truth is that the holdup on vaccine rollout is that all the wealthy and connected folks are still on vacation and we're waiting for them to get back and get their shots. Once they do, then the normal folks can start getting it!

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/12/03/opinion/covid-19-vaccine-timeline.html

based on this,  I'll get it after about 97% of Americans. My wife (who works in a hospital) will get it after 3% (potentially 1st dose in December, though there are more front-line types that are presumably ahead of her)

Wife gets Pfizer vaccine on Monday (DC hospital, government affiliation, risky patient facing but not “front line” as in ER / ICU / covid unit)

Sister got Moderna vaccine today (South Florida hospital, large hospital system, risky patient facing but not "front line" )

All the staff at my grandpa’s long term care facility have been vaccinated but I don’t think he has (he’s 94)

Dad vaccinated today.

He is 68 and has an autoimmune disease that makes him high risk, but that’s not why he’s getting the vaccine. He’s getting it because my sister is an employee of the hospital and the hospital is enacting a program where employees can bring in a 65+ year old of their choosing.

The roll out is so weird.

The roll out is so weird.

Mom vaccinated today because of sister's hospital employement (sister just called and asked if she could bring her in).
Grandpa vaccinated today because he's 94.
Wife 2nd dose today because she works in a hospital.

After today, I am the last remaining in my immediate family to have not been vaccinated at least once.

Just an anecdote about the vaccine rollout is. It seems pretty consistent across my friends/family that if you have work at a hospital or long term care facility or know someone who does, you're getting vaccinated or have a date (my cousin is a nurse practitioner in Tennessee at a hospital and just got hers too, my hygienist aunt in Tennessee has not gotten it yet).

My cousin, a radiologist, got her 1 dose like 2 weeks ago. She's in the Bay Area.

Found out my 98 year old grandmother will be getting the vaccine on Friday. She will be going with my aunt(her daughter) and uncle. Both of whom already got the vaccine. My aunt being a substitute teacher and my uncle being on the board of a hospital! Both when asked if they wanted it, retorted with "shouldn't other people get it first" and the response was that they just so happened to have them laying around, and someone needed to take them. What a remarkable rollout.

I dont know other places but in Chicago, the age wise vaccination is weird:

https://data.cityofchicago.org/Health-Human-Services/COVID-19-Vaccine-Doses-by-Age-Group-1st-Dose/7rmz-icie

You can have mouse pointer on the date and it shows the age wise vaccination for that day.

For example, on January 11th, one 80+ vaccination and Twelve for 70-79 year olds.

And 181 for 18-29 year olds got vaccinated.
