Please check the accuracy of the data for zip codes 77339 and 77345. There have been NO CHANGES AT ALL in the data since May 1. This is not accurate information...
When attempting to register for my second dose the system only offered two locations and only one date but when choice was made message returned that all appointments were taken, choose another location/date. BUT the system does not allow me to choose another date. I am stymied.

My wife received a link to schedule an appointment for her 2nd dose yesterday and this morning. The link to her to the appointment page, but the form is not working. We have tried using her phone Safari browser, iPhone Chrome, Windows Chrome and Mac Safari and Chrome. None of the three dropdowns work when clicked. Is the problem with the form a known issue and how might it be resolved?
We live in Spring. My wife got her first dose of Moderna at Planet Ford Stadium on March 6, and was told at that time to return to the same site on April 6 for her second dose. Then last week she was sent an email to schedule her second dose but was told she could only go to Baytown or Katy, both of which are 50 miles away, because they are the "only sites offering second doses". Today we were told by a friend that he just got his second dose at Planet Ford this past Tuesday, March 30. So what is going on? Are they doing second doses at Planet Ford Stadium or not? My wife is supposed to get her shot on April 6 but for now she is being sent to Katy. Can we switch her to Planet Ford?
I received the link for my second vaccine but There are no appointments. The dropdown boxes have no info. How do I register or get a good link?
I will not play this game. It is unethical and inhumane to deny me treatment for ADD, HARRIS COUNTY MEDICAL DISTRICT. I am not brave like Thích Quảng Đức, but I hope I can have an impact on your harmful policies.
Any info on where/how to get vaccine?
Shame on you for your treatment of Dr Gokol. He is a hero. You don't deserve such a diligent physician! Shame, shame, shame on you.
