It happened this past weekend. The Ontario government bureaucracy lost me. I was due for my second shot of the Pfizer vaccine. Since the first shot had no adverse effects, I was looking forward to the capping shot.
While it is still a matter of four to six months to vaccinate everyone, who wants to be protected from covid-19, I figured the end of the lockdowns and the damn masks was in sight and possible.
And that was when I was lost from the Ontario vaccination lists. I am sure that my political views had nothing to do with it. You should not write commentaries such as I write and be paranoid. You would be afraid to cross the street. I am sure premier Doug Ford would have a problem picking me out from a crowd of two people. And he has more important things to do than screw up my shots. My bet is that his cheapskate, uncaring government has screwed up a lot of covid-19 shots for many citizens since vaccinating was undertaken by the province.
I believe it was Ford who was first to hire a general to figure out the logistics of getting the right number of shots to the right map co-ordinates. The feds followed with a general who only had to get deliveries to the provinces and northern territories. There is no way of telling whether Ford got tired of the general or the general was soon tired of Ford but the general’s contract seemed to be over before the job was really off the ground.
It seems that, like Trump in the United States, Ford is incompetent and fails to keep more competent help on side and working.
And while we are on this subject, we should mention that not all of our citizens are eager to get their vaccine shot(s). Some surprise me in that they are shopping for the perfect vaccine. I think we can safely report that none of the various vaccines approved by Health Canada are perfect. The best advice these folks will ever get is to accept the first vaccine available to them and jump on board. Nobody can afford to wait.
And then there are the idiots who tell us that the pandemic is bogus. They do not intend to accept any vaccine as it is some sort of plot. I think there will be fewer of these fools by the time we have the pandemic passivized.
