More on COVID-19 Vaccinations

As the City and State struggle with competing systems, there are several volunteer sites that could get you to an appointment faster - WHEN vaccine is available.  We suggested one in our last newsletter -, an all-in-one website that aggregates most available vaccine appointments at City, State, and private sites.  There is now another:  TurboVax which sends out openings over Twittter (@turbovax).  Download a Twitter app on your phone, follow @turbovax  to get bulletins
