Georgia Vaccine Hunters Facebook Group – You may want to join?

Note from Audra:  A Facebook friend invited me to this page and I thought it worthy of sharing for those of you looking for “waste” vaccines.   Click here to request to join the Georgia Vaccine Hunters Facebook Group.

COVID-19 vaccines are an important & precious resource, and unfortunately, many doses are thrown away every day. In this group, we will collect & share information about places where people of any age can get vaccinated without restrictions and *not* at someone else’s expense.   This bears repeating – *not* at someone else’s expense – we’re not about taking from more deserving recipients, just looking to eliminate waste.   Thanks to the peculiarities around the extremely cold storage that the COVID vaccines require, there are rare occasions where “spare doses” may go unused & should be made available to anyone including young people.… Read More »
