    Please utilize these testing centers if you do not have any symptoms. People who have no symptoms and just want to be tested are inundating our emergency rooms and bogging them down, and exposing themselves to Covid and flu. If you’re not having a medical emergency, please stay out of the Emergency Room.

    To allow each individual doctor to have the Covid vaccine would mean having vaccine just sitting waiting on a patient to want the shot. Having specific locations set up, they know each person coming in is there for the vaccine. It, also, makes record keeping a lot easier. It’s not that hard to set up a time to get the shot, the way it’s being done now.

    I was told by mine that it has to do with storage requirements needed. Most Dr offices don’t have the required systems.

    If people want people to get the Covid shot like all other shots…
    Why do the powers that be dont let your own doctor give you the shots.
    I have all my other shots given to me by my own doctor.

    Just wondering.
