Although things are getting better, my cousin's adopted daughters did both just come down with Covid. (They are experiencing symptoms but doing fine).

Wishing them a speedy recovery and without any of the long covid stuff.

Have been working about every other weekend doing vaccine clinics.  It's generally fun though our clinic does vaccinate 1300 or so people a day on weekends.
Giving shots is fun.  Doing the post-vaccine observe job (watching people for allergic reactions) is tedious.

We've been using Moderna some days, J&J the other.  Some clinics in my system are using the Pfizer. 
Where I am we're vaccinating age 60+ and teachers and some who are younger who live in multi-generation households, and people with some disabilities.

Don't have as much vaccine as we wish but supply is looking up for next week.

I have no f**ks left to give for the people who are taking risks this week and will be driving the numbers up again in two weeks from now.  "Spike the ball on the 5 yard line," Dr. Fauci says.  An apt descriptor.

there's an old saying  i use for people who refuse to use the vaccine and that's simply that they are stuck on stupid it's a clean thing to say so if i am talking to a kid i can say it lol.  i'm glad you are enjoying your job though i couldn't do it knowing the luck i sometimes have i'd end up doing it wrong

Well, shoot. My cousin caught it from his daughters. He's pretty overweight, too, so he's at higher risk of complications. He was probably just weeks away from getting vaccinated. Poor guy.

i'm sorry to hear that i hope he gets better, there was an article that i saw yesterday where it had a woman who apparently going by it's title had it for 8 months i dunno if that's possible or not to be honest but she got the vaccine and at least by the title i didn't read the article she feels fine now.  look it up online and

look into seeing if that's true so someone maybe can suit up or something and give him the shot that may help? i dunno if that article is true or not or some woman wanting attention or not but look into it and if it's true that may help

My brother-in-law over in the states was told to contact the clinics at the end of the day. They then give out vaccines from people who missed appointments. No idea if it is the same in your part of the US but might be worth giving them a call and finding out what their policy is?

on my celly though i didn't i admit didn't read the article but it said there's a 79% chance of it working. now that's not 100% granted but i think it's safe to say it's better than having it be 50/50 chance.    but that of course could change and become higher in due course i also saw an article and this will come on no one's surprise at all that people who are republicans are most likely not to get the vaccine i didn't have to read the article to know that anyone who voted for trump

or is part of his cult well DUH ya know?
