So here in Indiana, we have been suddenly bombarded with urgent messages on the Cell Phone EMS system telling us about the availability of Covid vaccinations (several counties over)….I got 12 messages today on the EMS Cell alert system… telling me that “Free J&J and Phizer covid jabs are available are availble in RVLT high school 730 w 25th ave, Gary”.
Not a real Emergency for the Emergency Message System.
Now this is how you get people to ignore real alert messages. Cry Wolf. In NO WAY is the availability of Covid shots an Emergency, nor Urgent, or anything but advertisement.
Not so oddly, the phone numbers for the folks responsible went STRAIGHT to voice mail.
I will follow up tomorrow.
