It was one of the big pharmacies that you mentioned that had the huge waiting list but was receiving only 10 vaccines a month.

One reason this pharmacy had such a long waiting list was that their corporate HQ forced them to put a similar message on their LED sign (which is why I went there). Then people showed up and there were no vaccines available so they added their names to the waiting list making it even longer.
As I mentioned on another thread, I later stopped by a Costco to get on their waiting list and they actually had vaccines and were accepting walk ins so I received the vaccination. I told the pharmacist I had recently had the flu shot and she did not consider it a problem. The next day I was very tired with a slight fever and chills but nothing extreme.
