So much for their “Alert “ system. Not one WORD about this. You read about it AFTER. Typical Nassau County hacks. Weeks ago they got vaccines in Broward County, but NOW we get the FIRST vaccines here? It will be YEARS before these clowns get around to helping those who aren’t in their clique. BS.

Joe, The vaccination event was for those who had a scheduled appointment to get a vaccine. As far as the alert system goes, I signed up and I am getting alerts regarding vaccination appointments being opened, and alerts regarding opportunities to test. If you are not getting any alerts, I’d call Nassau County Emergency Management.

I got a text notification last Monday, got an appointment and was vaccinated on Wednesday. Everything worked perfectly. The county and the state health department in the county are doing the best they can. They need more vaccines. Call the Governor.
