    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    Vaccination is about a lot more than just yourself. There are people everywhere who legitimately cannot be vaccinated, for various health reasons. The entire concept of herd immunity (the actual, defined concept not the news media and Facebook concept) is that if you get a large enough...

    And everyone has seen this already, right??? This is possibly the most amazing thing I have seen yet. Actual video from landing on another planet.

    I'm not an expert either. But I have heard through reliable channels that the EUA is the reason the military is not requiring it, and that they will require it once it receives full approval. If the military doesn't believe they can require it, I wonder how any other employer could.

    I don't think an employer can require the COVID-19 vaccines at this time, since they are under an emergency use authorization (EUA) which is not FDA "approval". That's what I have been told through my channels. However I have also been told that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are likely 100% to...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    ^Not only more contagious, but also less affected by antibodies. Apparently convalescent plasma doesn't work against this variant, but the antibodies produced by vaccine response seem to respond, but not to the same degree as for the previous variants. From what I have heard, the experts seem to...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    Well look at it this way: those people are the most likely to have been infected already. So once we get past this 3rd wave, maybe they aren't as much of a threat anymore? (I kid, but there is some truth to that. The problem is you can't count on it and those people are also the most likely to...

    Last thing watched on netflix / Amazon..................

    Season 5 of The Expanse has been pretty good. Some pretty cliff-hangy stuff. I like that they're releasing episodes weekly, like the Mandalorian. I like stretching the viewing out more.

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    I didn't have that side effect. I am now at +8 days from my second vaccination, so in theory I am now 95% immune (that's probably not correct - the epidemiological way to state it is likely "I now have a 95% chance of not developing symptomatic COVID-19 if I get exposed") However, for the last...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    There is actually logic behind the vaccination priorities, at least at the federal level and most states that I am familiar with. The goals as I mentioned at this early point is to take the pressure off the health care workers, first by vaccinating them and then by vaccinating the people most...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    And don't forget that this early in the process, one of the major goals is to reduce the number of people taking up hospital beds (and I don't actually know if smokers are more likely to be hospitalized, but that's probably the case at least for long time smokers). Every smoker vaccinated means...
