We got extra doses to pass out this weekend because the state knows we can do it. The vaccine comes to us and we prep the doses and give out shots, they don't sit and collect dust. All this and we don't get a penny from the gov't to administer and everyone is volunteering their time to do the job in hopes of getting the pandemic under control.
It is such important work. I was grateful my parents were able to get in as early as they did. Having them vaccinated is a huge weight of my shoulders. Keep up the good work!

Maybe I should go to weekend paramedic school and get a job on an ambulance.

Skydog - As a retired physician, I thought of volunteering to give injections. However, unlike when this all started, the CO volunteer program now requires an active license. I let mine expire. Unlike many other states, CO does not have a "retired" category for medical licenses, which besides a markedly lower fee, allows for treatment/prescription writing for non-c0ontrolled substances for self and family, and volunteer work.

That’s unfortunate. It would seem that there is an opportunity here if people are needed to do injections.

Thanks for posting it. I'll keep trying.

I'm on wait list now with Kaiser and CU Health, but have heard nothing further from either.

Will this make a difference?

Retired doctors, nurses to be approved to give COVID-19 vaccine

Quote:

Retired doctors and nurses are being called to the front lines of the U.S. coronavirus vaccination effort, the White House COVID-19 Response team announced.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said Wednesday it is amending its rules to allow retired health professionals to administer COVID-19 vaccine shots, said Jeff Zients, the White House COVID-19 Response coordinator.

The rules, drafted under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act, will also be adapted to allow licensed doctors, nurses and health practitioners to administer shots across state lines, Zients said. . .

Suzco - that's interesting. I haven't read the full article yet, but I was under the impression this is up to each state.

Going back 30+ years, there is/was a flying eye hospital called Orbis. The initial intent was to fly around the US to underserved and rural areas to provide cutting edge services (no pun intended) and teach the latest surgical techniques to the local docs. States refused to let it happen, as the volunteer docs on the plane weren't licensed in each state. Long story short, Orbis said "*********" to the states and started providing services internationally, where it was appreciated.

DH and I were both able to get 1st vaccine appts in the last 24 hrs for the upcoming week, one through Centura and one through CVS at Target.
