That's encouraging. Also sort of deflates the higher echelon using the excuse "We have to get the shot early so we can demonstrate to the unwashed masses the the vaccine is safe.

I do believe that, that was just an excuse to butt to the front of the line for many of those that took an early vaccination, all in the name of "calming the public"

Vaccines don't prevent infection they prevent disease. All three major vaccines have 100% efficacy in preventing significant disease. What you are presenting is the false information .

Where are the lines ? Have they even started to vaccinate the general public ? I thought it was going to essential health workers and the elderly first.

I did not think the numbers would be that high.

Some healthcare workers refuse to take COVID-19 vaccine, even with priority access

Their names should be published, so that normal sane people can avoid them, and apply for their jobs.

All kinds of lines and such here in Florida, but then again we have tons of retirees down here, so maybe that has something to do with it. Just one example of the news all around Florida.

I don't need a vaccine, because I'm a Neanderthal

https://news.yahoo.com/oxygen-level-...l&uh_test=1_04



The protein, called OAS1, is involved in the body's response to viruses. People with higher levels of the Neanderthal-related form of OAS1 are less susceptible to COVID-19, and if they do become infected, they are at lower risk for hospitalization, intubation and death, the researchers found. "This protective form of OAS1 is present in sub-Saharan Africans but was lost when the ancestors of modern-day Europeans migrated out of Africa. It was then re-introduced into the European population through mating with Neanderthals" who lived more than 40,000 years ago...

I can go to google earth and see my garden out in the back so Iím sure the KGB can watch me drink cheap beer as I work on my bikes and listen to AC/DC. Every vaccine has had side effects and some will have a bad reaction that has been true for all vaccines. I have no fear of a covid vaccine. Hopefully it will give me a great buzz for a few hours or days.
