Many of us know that trying to get a vaccination appointment scheduled can be tough. Many people are all trying to schedule at once and at times the system can slow down and you may be out of luck for whatever the reason. Then you have the recent debacle with Johnson and Johnson and one may feel like there's no hope in getting vaccinated.

There is hope. From what I have heard from folks, our local vaccination sites have been doing an excellent job in getting Berkshire County residents vaccinated. Sure, you have to wait in line and yes sometimes the registration process can be tedious and even cause delays when signing up but it's all worth it once you complete your vaccination. It's a big weight off your shoulders. The folks at Fairview Hospital did an excellent job when I was vaccinated. The entire process was a well oiled machine. Thank you Fairview.
