I encourage each of you to consider the elderly in your community who may not be able to navigate this without some help. My wife has helped more than a dozen elderly up here who she reached out to. Without registering for the vaccine up here, you cannot get the shots. Well, what if you don't even know that there is a registration process, much less understand how to navigate it?

The Georgia site isn't very helpful. The two best ways in Ga. are to follow Publix (weekly new appt.times) and if you're N of the city, First Redeemer and Brown's Bridge Churches do mass public vaccinations once a week as well. (You must have an appt.)
*Publix appointments open up @ 6AM, be ready!

I find it hilarious that Tennessee is the southeastern state that is most confusing. Some counties are 1A while some are 1B? Plus 1A and 75+ are 2 separate categories that come before 1 B.

I live in NJ and they really seem to be making it up as they go.

Should put shot jabber people at all the gas stations and when you pull in to get your full service gas (or can you pump your own in NJ now?) then they stick you. :D

(first time I got gas in NJ I didn't understand the rules and thought I was going to get shot by the attendant for trying to do it myself.)

Small town stations will let you pump the gas yourself if they know you, but it is against the law. I only pump my own gas when I need to fill gas cans, and I make sure that my truck is blocking view from the road so I don't get the station attendant in trouble. We all know one another here and everyone helps everyone else.
