  1. ^^Thanks that is good information to know. It is not possible to communicate by phone with my vac site so I can only rely on one way email communication from them. We had 48hr notice to arrive for the first shot so we made it that time driving from lakeside. My family in Texas has been without power or potable water since Monday. Walmarts and HEB have been closed around the clock, but today the sun is out and all will return to normal soon. IH35 in central Texas has been at a crawl this past week so it is good to know that the shippers have the product in stock in the hubs. The vac
  2. I wonder how long the Pfizer vaccine can remain viable if the vaccination sites and storage facilities have no backup power generators to maintain the -70C temperatures. There could be millions of doses lost in the areas that have suffered the recent winter storm, particularly Texas.
  3. This blogger in your area is well connected. You may want to send him a msg. https://qroo.us/
  4. My maid just told me Dr. Nuñez in Jocotepec died of COVID. He was in the hospital 3 days. I have no confirmation of that news. Quite a few expats in Joco were his patients.
  5. Whenever I am asked my age at the entry I just say, "Tengo treinta y cinco años en cada pie." By the time they figure that out, I am at the checkout. No problem, it is Mexico so there is always a way.
  6. Just a heads up with Transferwise, there is now a $980 USD cap on amount to be converted and sent to my Mexican Bank, Bancomer. New Mexican banking rule as of the end of December. If you want to transfer $4900 for example you will need to make 5 transfers. The rules may change but Transferwise does not know when. The cost of 5 multiple $980 transfers vs one transfer at $4900 will incur an additional 10% in fees according to their fee schedule. I do not have a business account so maybe the rules are different with that account.
  7. Same circumstances and decision here but we cannot make appointments. The websites will not provide appointments in my county until the vaccines are scheduled to arrive. Maybe next week, vamos a ver.
  8. Curious Jim if you are an American living in Mexico, what is your plan? Will you drive/fly to the US for a vaccination? I am not trolling you, I am only seeking out another opinion because I may be driving to Texas if the vaccine becomes available in my county of residence there. So far, it is not available in that county for 1B.
  9. I forgot to mention in my earlier post that about 1/3 of the Costco parking lot was blocked off also so it was very difficult to find parking, I had to wait and follow someone to their car. Nice to get out for the day and take a drive. We always have other options with deliveries.
  10. As far as their hours for seniors, there are none that I know of. We were turned away at the door today when asked about our birthdate. We called Costco today and we were told that persons under 15 or over 70 were not allowed into Costco for the next two weeks. We went and then the new age cut off became 15 or over 60 when we arrived. Lopez Mateo Sur location. YMMV
  11. I could be wrong because I am too lazy to spend the time googling, but IIRC Calif with 10 million more residents than Texas has had fewer COVID deaths. That stat may have expired.
  12. Are the January fiestas, Señor del Monte, canceled? I have not seen anyone setting up booths in the streets.
  13. I deleted my own post above that could have been construed as political. If you saw it and wonder why the post disappeared it was not a right wing conspiracy or a left wing conspiracy or the Kracken. Just me. 🙈🙉🙊
