    I just heard from a client that she and her roommate were able to make appointments for their vaccine at the end of the month -- they work for a school district, so they are considered 1b even though they are in administration with zero public contact. In fact, they have both been working remotely from home this whole time. How is that fair or logical? Curbside service does not protect veterinary staff from exposure to each other. We wear masks, but we can't stay 6 feet apart, and we're working all day every day in cramped quarters. Plus, the staff still has direct contact with many clients day in and day out even if it's outside in the parking lot, and clients often aren't wearing their masks properly, if at all. We should have vaccine priority over office workers who can work from home!
