All the rest (including my home state of OR) are phasing the vaccine roll-out and are currently in the phase for "teachers, child care workers, etc". As it currently stands, "over 65" is not scheduled until the week of March 7.

    This could also impact the possibility of the MOA rally in June.
    I can't speak to the ability to actually deliver these shots, but for once Idaho is more progressive then Oregon in that we have approved 65+ vaccinations starting in February.

    Same for Iowa.
    I'm 65 but Debbie does not turn 65 until July.
    Iowa is 46th in the nation for vaccine allotment.
    I'll wait awhile to see about getting a shot so others that really need it can get it.

    Yes I have the letter that I am eligible to have the shot, then when trying to make an appointment you are told all full or all out of vaccine.
    It is a run around! Why??? I'am in the second group. They are still not done with the first group yet.

    That's my take as well. I'm OK with allocation to groups of higher need than me as we work towards control/eradication of the virus. I'm 66, but in excellent physical health so I'm happy to wait my turn.

    Rumor is that Montana is turning the vaccination process over to the ranchers. They regularly vaccinate hundreds, sometimes thousands of cattle at a time. The advantages of this is that the ranchers already have the pens to hold people, the electric prods to keep the line moving and the pneumatic body holds to deal with the non-compliant. As a side benifit they can brand people to prove they have been vaccinated. Imagine how trendy having a Rocking Y brand on your chest would be. Brilliance, sheer brilliance.

    None of the states are getting enough vaccine. Idaho only gets about 12k does per week.

    I thought it was just because we were a blue state.

    Iowa gets 19,500 a week now.
    2nd week of February that goes up to 20,000 per week, then an additional 10,000 each week after that until March.
    The article said it's possible Biden could change these numbers.

    Some of those in charge are still pondering the logistics of getting those hospital ships to Iowa.

    What plan? There is no plan?

    Even if a state knows its allocation county health officials are in most states still left clueless. Nobody can plan beyond next week, if even beyond tomorrow.

    So far my favorite was the senior from New York who got on a list, and then an appointment in Colorado, so she drove from New York to her son's in Colorado to get her first shot. She plans to stay, or go back to get her second shot. Efficiency at its finest.

    I agree with Greg regarding Idaho's response. As with other states, the vaccine supply has been limited but they have a plan to deliver it and they're following it. Just need to be vigilant until our opportunity comes, and it will. Stay well and ride easy,
