    For those still looking for vaccines, after many hundreds of hours searching, we were able to get this morning.   CHI Franciscan Burien has an easy to use appointment deal.   If they have the vaccine, the days and hours available will be there for you to choose.   Fill out a form.    We wish other sites were this easy.   So keep an eye out on the CHI Franciscan site for when appointments are available.    We know they are full now for a few days, or were.    Best of luck to all those still looking.   It will be either Moderna or Pfizer….whichever one they were able to get from what we learned.

Sorry, comment time is over.
