SHOTS: Tough for seniors

| October 22, 2021 1:00 AM

I went to Walgreens-Apple Way to get a high dose senior flu vaccine at 8:30 a.m. Was told I needed an appointment, despite signs declaring “Walk-ins welcome.” I normally get this shot about a week or so earlier each year. My boys (like many seniors in Coeur d’Alene, I do not drive!) then took me to Safeway-Neider. I waited in the flu line until they opened at 9:05 only to be told the “vaccine person” comes in at 10 a.m. (no signage to that effect!). Trying to make an appointment by phone did not work as they assigned me a day I cannot access transportation! Without computer Wi-Fi access you are stuck … I cannot be the only one with this problem.
