4 of us were trying to get an appt and we all failed. All of those appts at Petco won't do us any good until they change the age limit. This is so disheartening. I feel like I let her down trying to potentially save her life.

Not just at Petco but at all the San Diego sites.  It's a shame that appts are going on unused today.  In 5 minutes another batch of appts will go unclaimed at Petco.  They should lower the age to 65 in San Diego now.  It seems that all the 1As including the 75 and over are done.

It seems that California is spinning up a statewide coordinated vaccine effort.  The county sites are now scheduled through a California wide website instead of locally.

On the flip side...

Some good friends of mine, older than I (I'm in my mid-40's, the oldest of this couple is low-60's), recently had their mom pass away this past week.  She was in her late-90's, and has been living in an assisted living home in San Diego (in the Poway/Rancho Bernardo area) for several years now.  Yesterday my friends were cleaning out mom's apartment, and as they were walking out in the lobby, an employee was putting up information about vaccine administration for today (Saturday).  The husband (whose mom is the one who died) just casually mentioned something like, "boy I'd love to get it on that" and the employee said, "well, you can!"  Apparently at this assisted living residence, they had gotten their vaccine doses and were giving them up by 1) residents (all very old, many with health complications) 2) employees (the med. staff had already received both vaccine doses) 3) family of residents.  This was based on different time frames, so if there were zero doses left after employees then family were out of luck.  They should up a bit early late this morning and sure enough got their first shot & an appointment for their 2nd dose in a few weeks.

My parents in AZ (both well under 70) also just made their appointments for their 2 doses earlier in the week.

So it sucks that we're all sitting around and waiting.  And waiting.  And waiting.

And waiting.

But at least there ARE folks taking care of business. 

I know we all hate having to wait: I used to _LOVE_ pre-purchasing my SDCCI badge for the next year the week of the Con (so, like, Thursday morning of 2005 Comic-Con I'd pre-pay for my 4-day w/PN badge for 2006...probably for, like, $50), and even the last year they pre-sold badges on-site I was there Thursday morning well before sun-up to wait in line to buy my next year's badge and end my waiting as quick as possible.  Heck, I'm a music teacher who hasn't seen the majority of my students in-person since March 13th 2020 & due to the awful COVID case-rates in San Diego County I haven't even seen my classroom since December 2020!  We have to have some faith that the process will work and we & our loved ones will get vaccinated, the virus won't mutate, and we'll all be OK eventually.  (I'm massively impatient so of course this is often much easier to write than live  :-X ).

i can't see them holding at 75 for much longer- I've been expecting my notification ding of change to go off at any point. my guess is they'll have to drop the age on monday at the latest

I heard there are a few hospitals in Los Angeles that have limited unused supplies of the vaccine at the end of the day that they give out to people not on the priority list (20, 30 and 40 somethings for example).  But this means you have to show up at the crack of dawn and wait in an unofficial or impromptu line.  Just like waiting for a Hall H panel two days in advance.

How vaccinations have gone in San Diego is illustrative.  There's a big rush when a new criteria opens up like 75 and older but then it drops off precipitously.  There are an estimated 620,000 people in tier 1A and over 75.  There's no way that many people have been vaccinated.  Not even half that.  Yet a week after it was opened up to 75 and over, the county literally coudn't give away vaccination appts.  Let's see how long demand holds up with the people 65 and over.  Right now there are already unclaimed appts at some vaccination sites in San Diego County.  They happen to be in the neighborhoods that are hot spots.  Places where you see plenty of people that don't wear masks.  Which makes sense.  If they can't be bothered to wear a mask, why would they get vaccinated?

According to the SD county gov website 442k+ vaccination doses have shipped, with only 192k+ administered (including 31k+ being fully vaccinated).  That leads almost quarter of a million doses currently not administered (and almost 100k additional doses than needed for the 2nd does of those who've already received their first dose).
