Don't think this is true. I have signed up through Harford County as a Pre-Registered for 1C (Bottom of the list as I am 31 with no health conditions). Latest I have received through the county is they are currently expecting those 65-74 in 1B to receive their first vaccine 6 weeks at the soonest and possibly in upwards of 13 weeks. They also put a hypothetical of "increased shipments" reducing the timeframe. Even then, 1C pre-registered people will not begin receiving notification for scheduling until late march. I wish you were right. But, I think it is wishful thinking.
When Will I Be Chosen?
Harford County has 17,000 people age 75+ and 24,000 age 65-74. Limited vaccine supplies are why only 9% of Harford Countians have received a vaccine as of February 1st. Things will speed up when the drug companies and federal government speed up delivery.
· Worst case: If things do not speed up then the average 75+ year old will wait 6 weeks and the longest wait for a 75+year-old to get a first dose will be 13 weeks.
· More likely: Shipments are expected to increase so that each week the supply increases by 10%. In that case, the longest wait for a 75+ year old to get a first dose will be 8 weeks and the average would be 4 weeks. In this case, group 1C would start to see invitations in late March.
