City Dwellers Unable to get Vaccinated at Home Travel to Rural Towns and Red States

People in congested, Democrat-run cities are having a hard time getting the vaccine

Americans across the country are rushing to get the coronavirus vaccine, but those in congested, Democrat-run cities are having a hard time. The Washingtonian reports that even after three months since the vaccine rollout, “about 10 percent of DC’s population is fully inoculated against Covid-19” putting it “behind almost the entire country.”

Their solution is to search “often redder” parts of the country so as not to be forced to continue to wait. Entire Facebook groups have been dedicated to finding locations for city dwellers to get their shots. DC-based group “District Vaccine Hunters” consists of residents sharing information.

“Willing to drive to Danville, VA? Looks like they have more doses than they can use” posted one member. “I just made an appointment this Saturday for my husband at the Rite Aid in Marietta!” wrote another, referring to Marietta, Ohio.

Another 40-year-old DC resident who doesn’t want her name used for fear of backlash was able to make an appointment at a FEMA site in Cleveland. “For me, being in a group that won’t be eligible in DC for a while, and being able to drive to a place where I am eligible or where there’s an abundance – I look at it as I’m freeing up vaccine in DC for someone who needs it and who can’t do that” explained the anonymous resident.

Some people are even going so far as to be a self-described “vaccine hunter” such as one woman who believes she has helped roughly 30 people go so far as to get appointments for their vaccines. She gets the majority of her intel by monitoring Facebook groups and learning when places like CVS and Safeway release new batches of appointments.

Kamala Harris

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”

At Least 3 US Airlines Will Restore Flight Privileges To Some Mask Violators

At least three major U.S. airlines – Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Airlines – have now said they will allow some passengers who were banned from their planes over mask violations to have their flight privileges restored – determined on a case-by-case basis.

On Wednesday, Delta released a statement saying, “At Delta, nothing is more important than the safety and security of our customers and our people. With masks now optional, Delta will restore flight privileges for customers on the mask non-compliance no-fly list only after each case is reviewed and each customer demonstrates an understanding of their expected behavior when flying with us.”

“Any further disregard for the policies that keep us all safe will result in placement on Delta’s permanent no-fly list. Customers who demonstrated egregious behavior and are already on the permanent no-fly list remain barred from flying with Delta,” the statement added.

United Airlines similarly announced it will allow passengers it banned for not following mask rules to be allowed to fly again.

“On a case-by-case basis, we will allow some customers who were previously banned for failing to comply with mask-related rules to fly United again — after ensuring their commitment to follow all crewmember instructions on board,” United Airlines said in a statement.

American Airlines will also allow passengers banned for violating mask rules “to resume travel at some point in time,” according to the company’s chief government affairs officer, Nate Gatten.

“In cases where an incident may have started with face mask noncompliance and escalated into anything involving something more serious, or certainly an assault on one of our key members or customers, those passengers are going to remain on our permanent internal refuse list and will never be allowed to travel with us again,” Gatten said.
