The vaccination campaign has brought risk down to the point where emergency restrictions can be lifted.
I’ve taken some time over the past few days to check-in on the vaccination status of my constituents.
This post collects my takeaways from the oversight hearing on the vaccine rollout held on February 25. It includes links to the hearing itself and my Zoom discussion of the hearing.
The big picture is that we don’t have enough vaccine and the rollout has been messy. If we had enough vaccine to use all the distribution channels available to us, things would be going quite well.
My advice to those eager to be vaccinated is changing. If you are already eligible, try the state’s new website. If you can find someone to help you get there, they can get vaccinated too.
We are doing a lot, but it is hard to know whether we are doing enough to support those who have lost income due to the COVID-19 recession.
