    Still can’t get a response from local health authorities about a subset of residents awaiting vaccination. If a person is immuno-compromised, the first dose of a vaccine gives only a small boost in immunity. The timely administration of the second dose, about 3-4 weeks, is critical to getting even a moderate response. Why are local authorities playing russian-roulette by delaying the second dose for up to 4 months?
