Hamilton’s ‘My Shot’ Been Adapted By CA Doctors To Convince People To Get Vaccinated

in Vacaville CA 84 views

The songs of Hamilton have been stuck in our heads since the Broadway musical was made available on Disney+ last summer. The Tony-winning show from Lin-Manuel Miranda has had its second wind of having a huge cultural moment since first debuting on the stage in 2015. It has become the inspiration for a YouTube music number adapted by North California physician Dr. Andrew Liu, who wrote a new version of “My Shot” to educate the public about getting their COVID-19 vaccinations.

The doctor, who practices in Vacaville, California, decided to remix one of the popular big numbers from Hamilton and create a music video to promote the importance of vaccines to make the COVID-19 pandemic a distant memory. He recruited his wife, Dr. Tuong-Vi Ha, and six other local healthcare workers to reimagine “My Shot.”

Physicians… they get the job done. It’s a super impressive video complete with new raps and lyrics to the song from the award-winning musical about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. They cleverly trade out the metaphorical “shot” of taking a chance with the two literal shots in the arms they hope everyone will decide to make an appointment to get done once it becomes locally available to them. The song switches out “young, scrappy and hungry” for ”down, tired and angry” to describe medical workers’ deposition following a year of treating 124 million cases worldwide and 2.73 million deaths.

CALIFORNIA — The rollout of the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccination triggered an expansion of inoculation sites in the Golden State, and there are still a number of CVS locations with appointments available this week.

CVS Pharmacy was already administering vaccines as part of the Federal Pharmacy Program, which means they receive doses directly from the federal government separate from the California allocation and now has begun receiving shipments of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

Solano County is getting another shot at helping the COVID-19 pandemic. About 4,000 of them, to be precise.

For the second consecutive weekend, a vaccination clinic will be held at the Solano County Fairgrounds for 4,000 Solano County residents who meet the eligibility requirements. This currently includes health care workers, first responders, and Solano County residents over the age of 75. Vaccination appointments are open to all those who are in an eligible tier, regardless of where they receive medical care.

The clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, thanks to a partnership between Solano County Public Health, Kaiser Permanente, NorthBay Healthcare, Partnership HealthPlan of California, Medic Ambulance and Touro University California. Solano County Public Health is providing the vaccine (Moderna) and will schedule appointments for community members. The partner organizations are providing staff to administer vaccinations and manage logistics.

The two-day event comes just one week after 3,500 shots were administered last week at the fairgrounds. Benicia held a one-day event on Feb. 2 that saw approximately 1,400 people receive a shot. The go-ahead was given for the weekend event on Wednesday.

California joins with FEMA to open 2 new COVID-19 vaccine centers, 1 at Cal State L.A.

in Around California 91 views

California joined with the federal government to open two new mass vaccination centers as test areas for new President Joseph Biden’s effort to create 100 such sites nationwide in 100 days, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Wednesday.

The sites at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum and California State University, Los Angeles, will be jointly run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services.

The move comes as California’s deadliest pandemic surge eases but the state struggles with vaccine shortages and bureaucratic headaches in a race to vaccinate its most vulnerable people.

The new sites are expected to open Feb. 16 for eligible people who can sign up now to be notified and will eventually schedule vaccine appointments using the state’s online MyTurn system. Both sites will be able to administer up to 5,000 doses a day, said state emergency services spokesman Brian Ferguson.

A couple thousand people will likely be coming to the Solano County Fairgrounds this weekend, but it will be to hopefully end what has been a wild ride that began in 2020.

The Solano County Department of Public Health is partnering with Kaiser Permanente to host a vaccination clinic in Vallejo at the fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday and possibly Monday, according to District 1 Supervisior Erin Hannigan.

The clinic will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and that Moderna shots can be administered to Solano County residents, all of which must either aged 75 and older or in tiers 1 or 2 of Phase 1A. Hannigan is hopeful that 2,500 shots can be given during the weekend.

“The first moment I learned there were vaccines coming it seemed as if I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel,” Hannigan said. “I’m fearful of the virus and I’m going to eventually get the vaccine if for no other reason then I’m not sure how sick I would get if I got the virus. I know there are some people who don’t want to get vaccinated but I’m hoping they will change their mind. I’ve talked to a few friends and they tell me they felt so good when they got it. They feel protection when they haven’t felt protected in so long.”
