1. I have always been madly in love with Morgan Freeman

Love him all the more for speaking to the black community to vaccinate. Wear a mask and social distance.

Thanks, Rhi.

2. He really is the best, stepping up and speaking out exactly when it's needed

And he's someone people will listen to, he has no agenda except to help.

3. Exactly right.

My mom is FINALLY getting vaccinated in two weeks. 94 almost 95 but we care for her in home and she wasn't a priority to the state. I get that.

As of this week my sister and I are fully vaccinated.

4. Oh, that is great news!

It's got to be tough since she likely can't travel to a vaccination site. And good for you - I got shot #2 a week ago, I'm so relieved that it's finally available around here. Until now, those I knew who were able to get it were either front line workers or had to drive clear across the state. But now not only are pharmacies offering it (got mine at CVS) and there are 2 large sites that opened up, a county site at a large health center nearby and a town site in the old Sears store at the local mall. And since everyone 16-and-over is now eligible, there's no excuse!

5. I was panicking trying to get my shot.

Nothing open. When they did they closed before you could log in. My sister got me one, yes at CVS. Ha, we were both on the computer looking that morning and she nabbed me one first.

16 and over will cover most of my family.

Thank you President Biden. This would not be happening without him.

6. Same here.

The only places offering the vaccine in New York were miles away, places I'd never been. My friend who teaches drove clear across the state to get hers since that was the closest place. I figured it would be months until I qualified, but then the pharmacies started offering it first. I had to drive about 20 minutes downstate in a rainstorm to get to the closest CVS where I could get an appointment, but I was impressed at how efficient they were and I was just grateful that I was able to get it much sooner than I anticipated. Whew!

And yes, the president is clearly responsible! He's getting this done at lightning speed! And it sure beats the suggestion of drinking bleach!

8. Oh, Good God! He actually said these insane things!

I saw a video of one of his press sessions saying this just a couple of days ago - and he was speaking to Dr. Birx! And it's totally beyond me how she didn't jump up and scream for him to just shut up!

11. I guess that part wasn't in that video, it was even more shocking now that we've returned to sanity

I do remember watching the initial "press conference" and he was so off topic and so full of crap that I never tuned in again.
