First-Come, First-Served Vaccine Sites Strain FL County Dealing With DeSantis Order | Talking Points Memo

Hundreds of people lined up at a rec center in Florida Monday for a hasty experiment in vaccine distribution: The COVID-19 immunization, recently supplied by the state of Florida’s health department, would be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

it’s unfortunate that we didn’t have three weeks to plan this event.

You didn’t see this coming?

We’re having to ride this bicycle as we build it

If this were a bicycle, you’dve all killed yourselves by now.

This (lack of) planning is unconscionable. Please tell me they have some plan in place to get all of these first-dosers a second dose in the appropriate time-frame. Something tells me they don’t really care whether that happens or not. This is criminal.

Didn’t have time to plan? “first-come, first-served basis” WTF

Maybe I lack imagination, but what could be a worse idea? Sell them on eBay?

I’m sorry, it’s “unfortunate”? Who the fuck do you think is responsible for that, you mealy-mouthed loser!? Hint: he’s the leader of your has-been political party.

Incompetence becomes just another weapon in the Republican arsenal.

Among their many deficits, Republicans do exhibit a modest talent for converting their paranoiac fantasies into reality: their lousy governance makes government a problem and misallocates resources while their Covid19 denialism overloads ICU’s with rationing and ever harsher triage in consequence; e.g., https://twitter.com/DrEricDing/status/1343331127789035524

Sure, but these folks are more likely to die before they can vote for DeSantis in the next election.
