Personal note: Spousal Unit and I just got our first vaxx doses, at a Walgreens a mere 40 minutes from home, after I’d stalked FindAShot.org for the past couple of weeks. Can highly recommend Walgreen’s COVID-19 platform (once you get past the annoying website registration) — it automatically booked our second shots for exactly three weeks after the first (same site, same time), sent out confirmation emails to print & bring along, and emailed a reminder this morning. The process at the pharmacy was quite smooth, too; even though we’d deliberately staggered our appointments, we were in and out within half an hour.
Came home and found this on one of my usual twitter reads…
“One of my cousins got Moderna [instead of Pfizer], and I was like, ‘That’s OK. We need a strong middle class. We can’t all be CEOs.’” https://t.co/kB3YgtWv9t

People love to rag on religion for creating divisive societies and it’s pretty obvious humans love to create new tribes out of anything

IIRC, there *was* a check-off box somewhere in the online registration where one could express a preference for Pfizer or Moderna — along with a warning that being picky might mean waiting longer for a slot. Needless to say, we were willing to take what was available.
