Gov. Newsom and the county knew in September that the vaccine would be arriving in December yet there are still no plans in place to get that vaccine into arms.

The county website hasn’t been updated in forever, Gov. Newsom has no plans to get it done. Maybe at this rate I’ll get the vaccine in 2022!

Hi, Darrell

I agree... we need some transparency from Gov. Newsom with respect to the plan to vaccinate Californians.

I am in the vulnerable age group with a couple of risk factors. Last month, I asked my primary care physician, who works for the largest health provider in NorCal, when the vaccine would be available. She said that all she has been told is that the vaccine is coming. No other details. Her boss said the same thing this week...

Short but sweet letter, Mr. Ticehurst. I read that some frontline workers have declined the vaccine. Perhaps you could substitute in their stead? I also read you could buy doses from the dark web. Volume discounts could probably be negotiated. Or see if you can snag one of the vaccines that’s about to expire. I hear our magnanimous Governor is relaxing distribution rules for these expiring doses. Maybe you can find a guy who knows a guy who's willing to sell you one of these doses.

Give Newsom a break. He needed to prepare for his statement condemning the riots in DC. That shows real, useful leadership.
