All night in line, difficulty in making appointments... The United States is full of problems with vaccination.

The COVID-19 vaccination work in the United States has been going on for many days, but the local media have constantly exposed problems such as “hundreds of elderly people queued up all night in the cold wind to wait for vaccination”.

Not only is it difficult to queue up for vaccination, but also sometimes the vaccination appointment website in some areas cannot be opened, and people have tried to make hundreds of phone calls but can’t get through.

In the early morning of the 3rd, before dawn, there were several kilometers of cars outside the St. Johns County Vaccination Center in Florida.

Among the elderly people in the crowd, they have been waiting for hours just to get the walk-in first-in first-served vaccine before the fourth day.

Local Resident: It’s really chaotic.

Near 16:00 on the 3rd, at a vaccination center in Volusia County, Florida, because all the vaccines were used up that day, the police notified the people who were still in line to leave the queue and come back another day.

Local residents: If the vaccination center closes and we don’t have a chance to vaccinate, many people will be very angry.

Local residents: There is still a long queue ahead. They should have prepared the vaccine long ago.

From the 4th, vaccination in some parts of the United States has been introduced by appointment.

However, due to the large number of appointments, most of the 4th, the reservation website system service in some areas was in a state of collapse, and the phone could not be dialed.

Locals: We live in Dela Beach, Florida and the website crashed and we simply couldn’t make an appointment.
