The Otena app notified me to make an appointment 2 weeks ago even though I don't meet any of the tier requirements. I got my 1st shot last Sunday.

Good. I think it is good that you got it before it opens up to everybody.

According to this board, Soka University via Othena app does not check anything and people have gotten vaccines there by pretending to have a health condition


Not encouraging this behavior though  ;)

They should have stricter means-testing if they wanted to prevent this loophole from being exploited.

For several weeks the non-government sites have been poking anybody that will show up.

I know multiple people that legitimately qualified to get the vaccine, but otherwise are indistinguishable from any other 20, 30, 40 year old.  No questions have been asked of any of them.

In 14 days it opens up to everyone, I say if you can get your vaccine, go for it, it helps everyone at this point.  Like IHO said, state high risk on Othena and you get an appt in 2-5 days.  If not, it'll be a longer wait especially for those who signed up in Jan and are still waiting will probably get priority once mid April hits.

Can I just state that I'm at high risk two days before 4/15 and make an appt on 4/15 when everybody becomes eligible? 
Are all those who got vaccinated ahead of their turns jumped the line by lying about their health condition?
I feel like I'm stupid just waiting for my turn.

Just do it.

The more who get vaccinated the better.

Got my first Pfizer shot today at Ralph's of all places.  Right before I showed up they put out an announcement over the PA system for anyone who wanted a vaccine to head to the pharmacy.  The Moderna vaccines they had were expiring in 1/2 hour and were up for grabs.  Happy to wait for mine I guess, to not waste them.  They offloaded all but 1 dose.

They actually have expiration times down to the hour on them?  Sounds pretty delicate.

Once the vaccine is mixed, Pfizer allows 6 hours at room temperature before they expire. Unmixed and sitting in a fridge, they have 5 days.

ABC News: US calls for pause in Johnson & Johnson vaccinations over blood clot concerns

The FDA and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Tuesday that they are calling for an immediate pause on the use of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine after discovering six cases in the United States of a rare and severe type of blood clot that developed about two weeks after the vaccine was administered in these patients.

More than 6.8 million doses of the J&J vaccine have already been administered in the United States.

The CDC and the FDA said that they are currently reviewing data involving these six cases -- all of which occurred among women between the ages of 18 and 48 -- where symptoms occurred between six to 13 days after they were vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

https://abcnews.go.com/US/us-calls-pause-johnson-johnson-vaccinations-blood-clot/story?id=77040882

My comment: Only 6 people out of 6.8 million doses received blood clots. I predict they will eventually continue to vaccinate people with J&J.

If they keep the J&J out of circulation there's going to be quite a rush for the other two vaccines. As of yesterday 2/3 of the available shots to be scheduled were J&J. Combine a krimp in access (short term...) and the floodgates opening on the 16th, it's going to get interesting quickly.

I guess also that distribution for the vaccine might be overweighted in some Counties. Need a shot in OC? Depends.... maybe today, maybe another day. Out in Riverside and SB County? It's wide open. They seem to have cornered the market on excess vaccine shots.

Someone on my Twitter suggested for the FDA to declare J+J the "Dudes Only" vaccine, since the clotting only affected women.

And then print t-shirts that say "It Takes a Real Man to Handle This Johnson"

Maybe this could get some macho anti-vaxxer men off the fence and get vaccinated.
