A troubling COVID-19 trend has now emerged in Kansas City given the stalled rollout of the vaccine and haphazard "honor system" rules for distribution.
What is vaccine tourism? It’s traveling to another country, city or region for a Covid-19 jab when it.s unavailable to you where you live.
To wit . . .
VAXX TOURISM IS NOW RAMPANT IN KANSAS CITY!!! AND SOCIAL MEDIA DENIZENS ARE CALLING OUT GOLDEN GHETTO FRIENDS FOR IT!!!
Accordingly . . .
AWESOME TKC READERS sent us this Internets shot of a JoCo local slumming at Truman to pick up the shot and then bragging about it online.
Of course we're not going to out the old school dude and we understand his desire for protection against the plague.
The problem: COVID has hit minority communities and the urban core harder than most and many critics are taking issue with Johnson County residents using their resources to hustle down to Truman and possibly take the vaxx away from someone without a car or an Internet connection who also needs it.
Of course this situation could be solved by better production and wider availability of the vaxx but apparently that'll take awhile.
In the meantime, other places like Florida are fighting this problem by imposing residency requirements.
Sadly, Kansas City leaders are more focused on restrictive lockdowns and haven't devised any comprehensive metro COVID vaxx distribution strategy whilst scarcity has inspired locals to fight amongst each other during this ongoing public health crisis.
