The switch from hospitals to health departments as the leading distribution channel has caused some confusion as hospitals received smaller vaccine deliveries than expected and had to cancel thousands of appointments. Health departments will rely heavily upon a new state registration process to sign people up. That website has not yet been created, and the Governor could not say last week when it will be.
Another potential snag: 342,000 first-dose vaccines have been delivered to hospitals, but only 250,000 second-dose vaccines. Will hospitals have enough to give second shots to patients who received their first shots?
A lot rides now on the performance of the local health departments. Some appear well prepared to meet the challenge. Others… maybe not so much. We’ll see.
