So corporates are bad for 'farmers' but good for vaccinations.
What am I missing?
If Tehseen took a bijness class flight to Los Angeles or San Francisco to get vaccinated by param poojya Pfizer/Moderna/JJ vaccine she'll be in for a rude shock. She doesn't qualify. There's no Cowin like site that lets you reliably register. The existing site is buggy and everyone knows it. Even a reliable provider like Costco has a website that is broken. What you instead do is search every pharmacy/medical provider, make dozens of calls etc. If she finds something, even if she tries to trick the system by claiming she's an essential worker, she will find a waiting list that may be days/weeks long. Or she can drive 3-8hrs to rural California to find a location where they're not seriously checking eligibility. I am not kidding - people are literally driving from San Francisco to near Bakersfield (~450km each way) to get a vaccine.
