Mayor Tyer Cautions Residents Against Vaccine Line Jumping
Iberkshires.com reports Mayor Linda Tyer Tuesday voiced concern on an issue with line jumping for COVID-19 vaccinations to the City Council.
"I know you're anxious," Tyer said to the council and the general public during the Zoom meeting. "We all want to get vaccinated but there is a very specific process, especially as it relates to the timing of first and second doses.
More than 200 people showed up at Saturday's second vaccination clinic at Berkshire Community College expecting to receive the first vaccination and were turned away because community members were sharing the private link for scheduling a second dose with friends and family, Tyer said.
When community members sign up for the wrong dosage, that is reportedly taking vaccination appointments from those who are eligible.
