The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine has been anything but smooth. The amount of vaccine allotted to each state isn't keeping up with the number of folks who want to be vaccinated. Add to that the addition of the so-called 1C group – folks 65 and older and those with underlying health issues – were just added to the “vaccinate now” list on the heels of the 1B group – 75-plus – while the 1A group – health care workers – were still being vaccinated. For people living with physical challenges, all this has them angry. Blaise Bryant and Denise DiNoto are with Consumer Directed Choices to explain.
