Here's an idea: Get the vaccine into anybody and everybody as fast as you can. Creating tiers and quotas screws up distribution and results in the comical clown show that's been California's vaccine distribution thus far.

I sincerely wish the effort to recall Mr. Newsom every possible success.
He kept Plumpjack open throughout the pandemic. 6 friends at a picnic table drinking wine, no food requirements, no masks while drinking-meaning no masks. Pulled in $600k for himself last year while every other small business is crushed under the weight of his science. Like The French Laundry, the science applies to everyone else.

Tried to schedule a vaccination at CVS, Walgreens and PAMF this morning. 0 results for this 65 year old. To be fair, PAMF could schedule me for Modesto.
