Okay ya'll, I wanted to make this thread since knowledge is power and I'd rather ya be able to find the vaccine if you want to. I am not making this thread to debate the existence of the vaccine, nor do I care to dive into an anti-vaxxer discussion. This is a place to share resources for people who want to get vaccinated.

I've already gotten my first dose of the vaccine because New Orleans' criteria are pretty lax. As of today anyone who works with the general public in Louisiana is eligible for the vaccine and even if you don't, just being a smoker is enough to meet to the criteria. Hell, I don't even smoke anymore but I was able to get vaccinated using that as my eligibility.

The biggest obstacle I'm seeing right now is that most states require you to be a resident of that state in order to receive a dosage. For nomads, that poses a pretty obvious issue in that most of ya'll aren't in your resident state, unfortunately I don't have a clear answer for ya'll other than to dive into learning about the requirements for whatever state your in. To that end I found this after a little digging. I copied this from the Wall Street Journal website and I'm posting it here because fuck em.

Eligible residents include healthcare workers who are exposed to Covid-19, staff and residents of long-term-care facilities, law enforcement, workers who have exposure to infections materials, individuals age 65 and older, certain front-line essential workers and caregivers of medically vulnerable people who aren’t able to get vaccinated. Others eligible for vaccinations are people on the Wyoming Medicaid Community Choices Waiver and Developmental Disabilities waivers, the homeless, those in group settings including prisons, critical infrastructure workers and individuals living in college dorms. The state added an online preregistration form, though the process varies county by county.

Hopefully this can help as a launching point for anyone who is trying to get vaccinated but isn't sure where to begin. Also if anyone has any personal experience we should totally add to this list, that way it can be a little more well rounded than just the WSJ's bland anecdotes.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
