The significance is that as of now, there are NO COVID vaccines available or approved, yet so many are thinking (due to the horrendous amounts of misinformation floating about) that there are COVID vaccines available. Apparently so many that the store felt compelled to post such a sign.
@Taxthememes: I thought that was snark, but I guess not. The significance is we have a president who has been saying that a vaccine will be ready in October, but we have health officials who say summer of 2021. Then we have a president who calls those health officials liars. This is not a normal posting at Walgreens
Back to another post today, it boggles my mind what people actually believe.

===COVID-19 VACCINE NOT YET AVAILABLE===
They should have added a subtitle: “As soon as an FDA-approved vaccine has been proven safe and effective, we look forward to providing it to keep you and your loved ones healthy. In the meantime, be sure to get your annual flu shot and any other needed immunizations.”

Covid Vaccine Not Yet Available……
Yeah, too bad they shut down that vaccine safety office.
Don’t hold your breath.

But after November 4th, you won’t need the vaccine. /s
People are desperate for their lives back, but I’m glad the FDA has been pushing back and demanding a strict, safe process to produce it. There is enough anti-vac nonsense out there without creating actual, valid ammo for that cause.
We need a vaccine, but we need it done right. I hope the production and distribution channels are ready for what is to come, though. Walgreens gearing up is a good sing.
While in no way intending to excuse blockheads or the peddlers of misinformation, I wonder how much of the presumed confusion is due to the compound message, “The COVID-19 pandemic is still here, so be sure to get your flu shot.”
Heaven knows I said similar things on multiple occasions.
And I’ve said it because it’s true — get your flu shot.
But I can see how that message could be somewhat confusing to the more easily confused.
