Covid-19

Just heard an old friend is sick with Covid...My tile setter, and he is completely unvaccinated, and a total anti vaxer I just learned. No idea how sick he is. Poor dumb bastard!!

His buddy told me, a union tile setter....He said, "I know, I hear it from these idiots I work with all day, every day...BUT who you gonna listen too, a bunch of tile setters, or doctors and scientists?". He is fully vaccinated, and just got over Covid himself, but it was a 4 day at home illness.
Let us know how he ends up doing. If he's really an old friend, maybe give him a call.

I think they need to start calling the jab something other than a vaccine, since it doesn't prevent infection or transmission. My boss and his wife both have covid now. Both are double vaxxed and boosted. Big difference in effects if you get hit with Omicron vs Delta, jabbed or not.

I added the adverb that makes this less misleading.

Also, what euphemism would you choose for the vaccine? While it doesn’t protect 100% (no vaccine does), it impressively reduces associated morbidity and mortality. You tried to say otherwise.

I do not understand the purpose of your attempted subversion.

And alive. So many without your jab
Not as lucky
Get vaccinated if you love your family

Call it a jab, then there will be no misnomer. 100% effective, lol. It's nowhere close to that, especially with Omicron, which luckily just has mild symptoms even for the unjabbed.

No get the booster now. If the variant escapes the vaccine it will be next year before there's another vaccine. A good idea would be to buy some disposable N95s now.
Pfizer comes through on schedule! Which will put those of us who boosted in the Fall ready for the Omicron boost.

Curious, I’ve been following the discussion on Pfizer and others tweaking the mRNA vaccines to keep up with variants and expected this soon too. This is obviously good news for those of us that trust in science and medicine.
I am tempering my hope a little though because the vaccine approval system is intentionally constructed to be methodical and plodding, even for an EUA.
Do you think the revised vaccine is going to have to start all over and be considered basically a brand new vaccine by the FDA?
We’ve been pretty lucky in the US to have such widely available access to the COVID-19 vaccines thus far. After the initial slow age-cohort rollout in early 2021, it’s been almost jab on demand, at least where Iive. The vaccine rollout has been a rather impressive feature of an otherwise shitty period. Other countries have not been so fortunate though.

Honestly I went into surgery because it was concrete. So the vagaries of large bureaucracies escape me. My guess is there will be a quicker approval process.

As you noted we have been very fortunate. Sadly we could have done better if it had not been politicized. Oh well there have always been paste eaters. I guess there are simply more tragic consequences for them today.

"We're ready for this," an official told reporters, saying they were cognizant of the need to make sure the website works.

hmmm, ok...we'll see ;)
