Vaccine Availability through Mayo Clinic Portal Notification

Thanks, I’m in Rochester. My instruction verbal and otherwise has consistently been to watch for the “invitation” to register via the portal. That hasn’t come via either private or Mayo email. The throng of friends far younger than I with no preconditions or work employment priorities having received their 2nd vaccine, and now their 16 year olds getting their first leads me to believe I’m doing something wrong (I’m 64 with a pre-existing condition.) These days I’m focusing my effort on “I know a guy…” leads which I think I would have been better served doing all along.

Tiggyboo – It seems that I am the only other one on here that truly knows how you feel and I am sorry you too have gone though this. I doubt we will ever know why or what happened that we were never notified to receive the vaccine. Here in Florida everyone that was a patient (even just a dermatology patient) received a message through their portal and plenty of emails instructing them to receive it. I am glad I did not wait around and went to Walmart (I am 67) to receive both of mine but I ended up with problems. My shoulder (where the shot went) froze up and 3 weeks later I am still having issues there and my lymph nodes. Would of helped if this had happened at Mayo where I receive a CT scan every 12 weeks for my terminal cancer. Whether it is their algorithm or human error, it is wrong that no one acknowledges that mistakes have been made. We have been forgotten, plain and simple. Next week I see my Oncologist and then my brain Radiologist and will have one of them add my vaccines to my portal so it is on my record. Hang in there and go get the vaccine elsewhere…..
