      Had they taken an optimistic message like that a month or two ago, and not gotten spooked by the dumb J&J stuff...I suspect more people would be less hesitant.

      I got my first one last week.

          Maybe. The fire department I work for has seen only about 1/3 get vaccinated, even though we were the first ones allowed. Seems like it’s predominantly for political reasons. Very few mask wearing around here anyway so doubt any new CDC mandate will matter. I’m sure others have different reasons for being hesitant.

                  Got it at noon on Saturday. Around 8 last night started getting a fever up to 103 but would last for an hour or so. Then go away. Then comeback in an hour. Had it all night. Very tired. Very sore. No energy.

                    • Where I live is down to 2 cases per 100k residents over the past week. USA down to 17k cases last reported day. Unless people start acting like total jackwagons over the next month COVID is over.

                      • Landed in West Palm and opened my phone to the CDC news Thursday. Was in Delray and didn't take out my mask from Thursday to Sunday other than for one uber. I'd say 50% of employees still wear them there. Some places no employees. In terms of patrons masking, I would say about 2%. Felt nice to be in 2019.

                                  It was an issue for everyone including the cdc.

                                    We already have a prophylaxis and treatment. I am completely dumbfounded as to why this is not more widely known and promoted.

                                    • Andrew Cuomo made millions in NY suffer with a year long lockdown while he pocketed $5 mil off his book that he wrote during a pandemic. What a POS.

                                          Glad you're feeling better. Still wait at least a week before you lick some railings in public, though.

                                                I'm guessing the CAD side will still have the two week quarantine thing if I'm not fully vaxxed, and I can't do that or I'll go insane. I would drink a litre of Flint water just to see a game.

                                                    Why not until October? According to the CDC, the Moderna and Pfizer second shots should be within 4 or 3 weeks of the first shot and then the wait after the second shot is 2 weeks. Shouldn't that get you fully vaxxed by mid-August?

                                                      Yeah, I was a rescheduling shift mgr at the ASU massvac site at State Farm Stadium and that's the correct math.

                                                        You would think, right? When I booked today (first time anyone 18-40 low risk can book) it pre-booked my next appointment for October 1st. Ontario is run by some of the smartest individuals.

                                                          Not at the level of the WHO. They had an opportunity to pressure China into coming forward and providing much needed information that could have shortened this epidemic and saved lives. They stood by for a long time while the rest of the world tried to get this figured out.

                                                                          Most studies show MRNA vaxx immunity > AZ. Natural immunity vs AZ varies depending on the variant. To me the bigger risk is places with naturally derived population immunity being overrun by a worse strain. If something did overwhelm vaccine immunity we have the production capacity for mRNA shots to get a booster out rapidly and distribute in quickly. Worst case scenario I'd see is a 1 month shelter in place order to get shots in arms in the winter.

                                                                            I listened to a NY Times journalist covering India report on their latest surge on “The Daily” hosted by Michael Babaro of the NYT. What I took from his comments was that they locked down really hard the first month and “flattened the curve”. The problem seemed to be that when they started opening back up the millions that avoided it during the lockdown were now instilled w/ a false confidence that they had rode out the storm and could get back to normal activity.

NJ has done a great job of vaccinating with almost 75% of the adults with at least 1 dose, but that 25% is mainly younger demos. Was in a club here over the weekend with 1000 others pretty much on top of each other and no ventilation. I am sure hospitalizations will continue to decline, but I suspect an increase among these demos will take place.

                                                                                                    It's too nuanced and they explain it too well. The amount of evidence in different areas they present can't be cliffnoted. You'd also miss out on understanding how thoroughly they were in addressing this.

                                                                                                    I expect it's going to blow up unless social media cant surpress ir successfully. But Bret Weinstein isn't exactly a nobody so I don't know how this will go. All I can say is I know how long 2.5 hours is, but it's worth every second. You will not be disappointed.
