Someone at work whom I've spoken to a bit went "now that biden... covid gone/antivaxxer I'll leave this job if they require a vacc."

I said, welp! my sister works at NHS, I've got family on the inside... so you know where I'm at.

she tried to tomato/tomahto why can they cure this with poision vaccines but are not able to cure cancer.

I suggested it was less like comparing apples and oranges.. more like apples and cancer they're so far apart..

ok!bai lady... work to do.

VAMS seems to be a real thing BTW. It's the CDC's scheduling system and it looks like several states are using it to manage vaccination.
My parents found out they could get the vax about the same way. My 95yo grandmother got an email telling her where to go.

Both parents are over 70, and live in a retirement neighborhood. Not a single one of their neighbors knew there were vaccines available to them now. They were not expecting them till summer.

Apparently I can get vaccinated in the next month or so because I'm considered an "essential food worker" in the state of AZ. I don't do anything with food, I work in finance for a restaurant development company in the corporate office.

So I was talking with my wife about this and she's not surprised at all. She's currently handling medical supply chain logistics for FedEx including vaccine & refrigeration unit distrubtion across the country.

Back in late Nov Trump was supposed to sign off on a huge Federal govt order for the Pfizer vaccine but was so wrapped up in his election fraud nonsense he basically sat on it and Pfizer, despite repeated inquiries couldn't wait and sent their next big shipment to the EU who was ready to pay. That is a big part of the perceived short supply of vaccine in some sectors as well as why the Moderna vaccine seems more readily available than Pfizer at this time.

Next in line here is food workers and mink farmers. Not sure how mink farmers are important enough to be second in line.

Default COVID-19... gonna be COVID-1 Million soon. Take the vaccine and don't quote trolls.

Last month, a coworker took a voluntary COVID test at a local pharmacy. He tested positive, but had no symptoms. A group text message was sent from him stating he felt fine and he knows he didnít get any of us sick.

Management scolded him for letting us know. (He was off the clock, and Iím pretty sure itís legal to volunteer your health status as a precaution). So I gave him a call and advised him to contact HR and the union rep as management generally doesnít know what theyíre talking about. And I added that he doesnít know if he got anyone else sick.

Long story short, the phone call I had with my coworker was on a Tuesday afternoon. Thursday at 3am, he was on a ventilator in the ER. He was there for a week and recovered. But his vocal chords were damaged. Heís back at work on light duty. 30íish years old. None of his family got sick from him.



This was the third employee in a short time span to get sick. My employer tested all of us, and out of 20 people, one didnít return to work after the results came in. (Excluding the three that were already sick).

COVID notifications are posted by the time clock. And obviously they canít say who gets sick. I look around and see whoís not there and isnít on vacation.

I think that makes five coworkers now. Company was legally obligated to notify the county health board and it was published in the news, or on their health website.

Donít waste your time with that guy. His inspiration is a twice-failed former ultra-right politician former right-wing radio show host named Danielle Smith. She pushed hydroxychloroquine as a 100% cure for Covid-19 in a since-deleted tweet.

The jutes here also pasted words from a retired military engineer as his own thoughts.... that the pandemic isnít a health emergency at all and the proper way forward is Covid concentration camps; not for the sick, but for the elderly, vulnerable, immunocompromised and everyone looking after them. This particular clown suggests forcibly locking them up away from the rest of society so society can open and carry-on as normal.

The irony is the psycho retired military engineer that spouted that crap would have to be forcibly quarantined and locked up away from society, himself, which heís completely ignoring.

So. Damn. Stupid.

I can tell you take this virus very serious. This initial "test" is very important in the terms of medical science.

It's probably best if you test these possible symptoms several times in the oncoming weeks.

Obviously this is a "take everything you can get" stage, but the Moderna vaccine seems more promising due to the easier storage requirements and early data suggesting higher efficacy after one dose (80% vs ~50% with Pfizer).

Donít forget that you will need multiple partners to be scientific about. Need a control for the test to be accurate...

And it's all that mixing up among other groups that seems like the problem.

All it takes is the guy behind me in security to have it, breathing down my neck while we wait to go through the TSA scanner, because he's one of those "MASKS DON'T WORK" morons, and then who knows? The guy sitting next to me in coach for two hours and I could both wear our masks, I'm sure that's got to be better than if neither of us did, but wouldn't it be better for him, and for everyone he's near wherever he's going, if I wasn't even there because I took the gulfstream instead?
