MIT Technology Review: What went wrong with America’s $44 million vaccine data system?. “The first time Mary Ann Price logged into her employer’s system to schedule a vaccine, she found an appointment three days later at a nearby Walgreens pharmacy. She woke up the next day to an email saying it had been canceled. So she logged in again and found an opening that afternoon at the local surgical hospital. ‘When I showed up, they said they wouldn’t honor it—they were only doing their own staff,’ Price says. But when she tried a third time to make an appointment, she was blocked from doing so: according to the system, she was already in the middle of getting a vaccine.”
