This vaccine rollout is becoming inhumane. It’s like trying to beat the bots and buy concert tickets online—but instead of missing Taylor Swift, you might die.
I don’t blame West Park for this—it’s clearly a failure at the highest levels—but at noon today, they will be releasing a tranche of vaccines for residents of the northwest, including Weston.
As per our announcement on April 21, we are providing 24 hours’ notice that on April 23 at 12 noon we will start to release vaccination appointments for April 24-29 at our West Park and Community Place clinics.

As a model of how else this could be managed, have a look at the Shoppers Drug Mart process. You answer a bunch of questions, tell them where you live, and they call you when it’s your turn. I’m not saying this is the best model—it’s not, because there should have been one central, easy-to-use, multi-lingual, accessible registry. But there isn’t.
