Have you been frustrated trying to book a Covid-19 vaccine appointment? I bet the only people who can answer no are those that haven’t tried yet! It’s a frustrating experience, even for those of us with lots of Internet experience. I recently booked two vaccine appointments for our gardener, who has worked for us for more than 25 years. He was so grateful, and I was thrilled to be able to help.
Whether you are trying to find an appointment for yourself, or are helping others book theirs, here’s a short video with tips from a vaccine-appointment master. It is from the Wall Street Journal, but it appears that you can watch it without a subscription. Meet Kris Slevens, an IT guy who has booked over 300 appointments for New Jersey seniors: Secrets of a Covid-19 Vaccine-Appointment Master: Advice for Any State.
