I hate the vaccine appointment site with the fire of a thousand burning dumpsters...

Did the state contract with Albertsons to push getting shots at store pharmacies that don't have openings? How can I get to the country walk in or drive through locations - every time I select one, I don't get any notice to check back the next day, I get sent to the F'ing Albertsons site.
Whether you pick location or date.
There should be a "these locations have "x" available appointments on "y" days" that updates as soon as someone picks a time selection so you don't waste time going through every single selection from the beginning just to lose days.

I know we have millions of Californians who need the shots, but damn, I've been getting up at 4 every morning since Monday and wasting an hour and a half on the county vaccine site trying to get an appointment at any of the 35 possible sites they give me.
I even switch up zip codes...

Nada. I'm calling my local community centers directly to find out how to bypass that Albertsons portal.

On edit - a coworker just told me to check with the VA; I have a DD214, so CAL-VETs here I go...
