Please make it easier for us old folks to get COVID-19 vaccine

A friend of mine just told me of the hassle his wife had to go through to get her COVID vaccination.

She went online and filled out the cumbersome forms, then after doing all that and showing up for her appointment they initially refused to give her the vaccine because she had no smartphone to “prove” she had an appointment.

The county is currently vaccinating folks over 75, and many seniors are technologically deficient when it comes to the internet and these electronic gadgets.

Why do they have to make it so difficult for us? Whatever happened to just having folks call on the phone and make an appointment? Why must all of this be done online and then “proved” by showing your appointment on a smartphone?

I’m wanting to get the vaccine myself, and while I at least know how to go online to stumble through the forms, I don’t have a smartphone for when I show up for the appointment. Please make it easier for us old folks! Start giving appointments for seniors via the telephone.

Cmdr. Ken Fasig, USN (ret.), Kalaheo

    Haha! I just spent 10 minutes trying to get a comment to post on here… exemplifying the challenges we ALL have with these technical “conveniences”!!!

    Something as crucial and literally vital as getting a vaccine should not be as complicated as it has been made by bureaucracy!

    Thanks, sir, for voicing an opinion that is held by many in the community here!

      Find a place with no technology because time is not on your side

      Reg, Almost every doctor at Wilcox and HPH in Oahu has taken the Pfizer vaccine.
      It is as approved as the other vaccines in the US and shown to be effective in large trials. The rna genes do not get into our nucleus because our nucleus only admits DNA genes. We don’t need any new conspiracy theories to enlighten us. Robert Weiner

    Like yourself, I am a veteran. I was contacted by the VA about the vaccine via telephone. Perhaps, you should contact them.

    The FDA refused to register the Covid vaccine for Pfizer necause it is not a vaccine but is an experimental gene therapy.

    Vaccines inject you with a live or dead actual virus, which the AstraZeneca pharmaceutical company uses a Chimpanzee virus in their vaccine.

    But Pfizer’s fake vaccine is not a vaccine but a Gene Therapy of unknown results or side effects. It is experimental because it went through. a “quickie”, warp speed, unQualified evaluation as to side effects and efficacy, meaning does it even work or make you sick.

    Along with the PCR Test for Covid-19 virus, which produces more false positives than accurate ones, this whole pandemic seems to be a push to sell vaccines, fake or otherwise.

    Pfizer is contracted to sell 1.5 Billion doses of experimental gene therapy, mistakenly called a vaccine, which is a considerable amount of profit and motive for its efforts.

    I’m concerned these extra added injected genes in a year or 2, could turn into something Monstrous, as a side effect.

    I’m also certain God gave us all the correct and right amount of genes we need to be a human being. So why would we need more, can anyone explain that?

    Now I understand why many scientists say do not let the Gene-e out of the Bottle, which is what happened in the pandemic case of the Wuhan China virus laboratory with the Covid-19 virus.

    Seems like they opened the cork on the test tube bottle and “poof”, before we knew it, the virus traveled around the world and caused a shutdown to the entire world economy.

      What is your scientific background? Are you an expert in genetics? Virology? Biology? Did you even pass high school science class? Look up the Dunning Kruger effect, where people know so little, they don’t even know how much they don’t know.

    I’M concerned that God may have given you an incorrect or wrong amount of brain genes if you think your comment was in any way germaine to the topic at hand.
    The discussion was about an at risk section of the population that WANT the virus and are asking for help in obtaining it.
    Your response might be more appropriate for the Journal of Science and Medicine. I’m sure they would love to publish your essay.

    I would not take anything Reg is saying at face value. Much of this sounds like a cut and paste operation from a not so reliable source. This is how the QAnon and the rest get misinformation, lies, out to the public and if you read this stuff often enough you begin to think maybe. This is exactly how the former president advanced his campaign of misinformation. This is why I am calling this out as all articles or anything in print needs to be called out for what it is. Otherwise we might have a bunch of yahoos storming our Capitol,, wait, too late.

    Nope. You’re all wrong except for Reg who it turns out is MUCH MORE INFORMED than all of you shameless shills! If I were all of you… I’d read this VERY CLOSELY:
