Re: Supermarkets giving COVID vaccines in your area

Right now the demand for the COVID vaccine is high. However, there are problems with finding people who want the vaccine. Many people sign up online for appointments, but they do not show up. Then the pharmacy desperately has to search for people to give the vaccine to before it expires. In some cas...
