    Canadian math.

    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.

    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.

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

    Make a fake card then lol. You'll be morally right anyway so its chill.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    CDC now says you can skip masks in most settings if you have both shots.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can forgo their masks and social distancing in many indoor situations.

    "Today, CDC is updating our guidance for fully vaccinated people," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said Thursday at a White House COVID-19 briefing. "Anyone who is fully vaccinated, can participate in indoor and outdoor activities, large or small, without wearing a mask or physical distancing. If you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing the things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic."

    That's still a lot of people and could take a while. News said air travel is picking up quite a bit and international travel is as well.

    Has she seen you without your mask?

    Congrats. Hope it goes off as planned.

    You are correct, though I believe it's 63% have a first dose, and vaccinations are slowing down. Still unsure if we will get there...

    I doubt it as well. Too many are just stubborn and won't do it.

    I feel really lucky - I had almost no side effects from shot one or two. My second was two weeks ago today and I felt great all through - even played golf the day after receiving it.

    Man, it definitely took more than 24 hrs for me. Today is much better than yesterday but I have a lingering pounding headache. I'm taking ibuprofen and alternating between caffeine and water. Hope it subsides after today.

    Saw on the news that numbers of vaccine recipients may be greater than reported. Seems there are quite a few that got their first shot at one location and the second at a completely different location, so both locations report they have only had one.
