I heard there is a covid vaccine clinic in the Baltimore community. I'm wondering how many people are getting the vaccine. And I'm wondering if this makes people more likely to trust getting the vaccine.

Not sure what you mean about a covid vaccine clinic. There are a couple mass vaccination sites fairly close to frum neighborhood area, and most people I know were able to get appointments there. They have walk ups available at one of the sites now, too.

I know the Jewish schools arranged early on to get slots for their teachers at one of the sites, like way back in February.

I got my first at a mass vaccination place before the Jewish clinic opened up. My husband vaccinated at the Jewish place and it took him 15 min compared to my hour+ wait.
Anyone who hasn't heard of the Jewish vaccination site, go to bikur cholim of Baltimore website and there is an application

I waited maybe 5 minutes at the mass vaccination site...it took longer to park and walk across the parking lot than it did for the lines inside to move. It was super organized (I was at the Timonium fairgrounds site).

I know I realized after. Oops. No way to edit the poll question. Moderator can you help and edit to say "baltimore Ppl only" on the pool question?

Bikur Cholim set up a site at Ner Tamid.

I got my vaccines at one of the mass sites at the end of January and beginning of Feb at the state fairgrounds, in and vaccinated within 5 minutes; the longest part of the day was the 15 minute wait after. Rabbi Heinemann was there and in line at the same time I was! My daughter got hers at M&T stadium a few weeks ago and will IYH get her second one shortly.

I think we don't really need a larger push here for the frum community to get our vaccines. My kids are in TA and Bnos and already so many teachers have been vaccinated, there have been an easing of restrictions in school. But I welcome any effort to get this going as fast and smoothly as possible.

I don’t live in Baltimore.
But my parents, aunts and uncles and grandparents there all got vaccinated before pesach. Most of their friends got vaccinated. My siblings in their mid to upper 30s are in middle of vaccinating.
It seems pretty popular to me.

Just recently got my first at the clinic.
I chose to get it there for convenience. I would have gotten it anyway. It is amazing that they are doing it though. Made it so easy. Very organized and we'll run. Thank you to everyone involved!

curious why students would want it, they aren't at risk for any serious illness. or is it so they don't have to take precautions and don't have to quarantine if exposed?

The kids want life to go back to normal. If vaccinating will help, they want to be vaccinated.

Also, my teens had covid and are dealing with long term affects months later. The doctor told us that for some, the vaccine helps with those lingering issues. For that alone, my teens got the vaccine.

They each had one, so I don't know if it's enough.

One has lingering fatigue. The other developed a circulation issues. His fingers (and a couple toes) are swollen and purple. We had a doctor look at it and nothing we can do at this time.

I’ve heard it can help. I hope it does for your teens.
