  • My wife and I had a very pleasant experience at the Beverly Hills Park. We got our COVID vaccination on Feb. 18. I had called Saturday and got our shots at noon on Thursday. The whole setup was well organized and ran perfectly. We got in line at 11:45 and we were sitting in the parking lot by 12 o’clock – painless shot. At least somebody knows what they are doing in this county. Call this number: 866-201-0442. We feel very relieved.
  • I just want to tell you about my experience with the DOH online registration to get vaccinated. I actually registered twice. The first time I registered, I got a call but I couldn’t talk to the people because my hearing aid was broken and I couldn’t understand what they were talking about. So I said, “Well, I’ll wait.” So I called back again and I reregistered and probably a week later, I got the call to get my vaccination. Yesterday I went, got my vaccination and it was great. There was a lot of cars there, a lot of people getting vaccinated, but it took about one hour to drive through and get vaccinated and wait 15 minutes. But that’s a good number to call and register. You don’t have to wait that long. They’re making appointments. You’ve just got to be patient and wait. My calls kept coming at night, so maybe they’ll call you at night. Be patient with them, but call and register with that state number, please.
  • To me, if you want to make it smooth and get the vaccine out to everybody, why don’t they allow your physicians to be able to get a supply of the vaccine with the instructions they would start with their oldest patients and work their way down? I don’t understand that. We can do it with the flu shot, so why can’t we do it with this? It seems like that would be appropriate. My local doctor would get it, I’d make an appointment and I’d get it a lot easier. I made an appointment online with the state and that’s ridiculous. I’m 80, so to me, it’s a broken system. Let the doctors get an opportunity to give it to their patients.
  • How many senior citizens 65 and older do we have living in Citrus County and how many of those senior citizens have already received at least the first COVID vaccination?
