    Covid-19

    The most vulnerable already have shots, the rest of us are as in need as anyone. Honestly I think it is time to shift the focus away from age groups and get the people out in public their shots. You want schools and businesses and restaurants open you better vaccinate the people working in those places.

    Yeah its about time all teachers across the province get vaccinated. Hopefully with Johnson and Johnson shot coming that is single does it will make getting vaccinated easier for some of our more vulnerable populations like the homeless.

    Wife and I just got the shot. I am ecstatic. Astrazeneca from local Pharmacy. The dude at Regent Park Pharmacy was awesome. He walked us through everything, assuaged my Wife's and my own concerns. Told us what to expect and what to watch out for. Darrel is awesome!

    Let's hope so. We have (had) 55,000 AZ vaccines in freezers in Manitoba not being used. Now, they're going to be scooped up very fast. I have a bit of anxiety about skipping in front of some that need it more than I do but the Gov't is enacting a plan to get doses to those communities. I couldn't believe social media yesterday among my peers. It was like Xmas. Some were sharing pics and others were sharing that they had upcoming appointments. It felt good. I sent a message to a co-worker that it was available and she made an appointment for her and her husband. Th

    None. Glad to see you booked one. I believe it was the opposite. Oxford university conducted studies on all ages and in England had a higher proportion of elderly in their studies. As has been said just about all have near 100% efficacy against severe illness or death. Give me whatever jab I can get as soon as I can get it. That is AZ on Monday.

    I tend to agree. There is plenty that gov't can do without banning something. Education is usually the best idea.

    My sincere hope is that this rush of people getting vaccinated wakes up the people being picky about which vaccine they get and the ones just normally hesitant. Make it seem like they're missing out and get everyone clamoring to get a shot.

    From what I have read, it works well against The UK variant and the P1 variant in terms of transmissibility and mild to severe symptoms. The south African variant is where things get dicey. it has a 10,9 % efficacy in preventing mild to moderate symptoms. The good news is, so far it has a track record of 100% efficacy against SEVERE symptoms. ANd that is kind of what we want to do... take the shot so we don't die. Sure there are concerns, but the benefits FAR outweigh the miniscule chance of clots. https://www.bbc.com/news/explainers-56665396

    Former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty on three counts of murder and one count of manslaughter in the May 25, 2020 death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man who was handcuffed by police on suspicion of passing a counterfeit $20 bill. Chauvin then proceeded to pin Floyd onto the pavement, with his knee on Floyd's neck, for a full 9 minutes and 29 seconds. salon

    They should have Mobile units with the vaccines that only require refrigeration. Get the shots TO the schools and have a quick morning/afternoon vaccine session. Teachers NEED to be vaccinated before the transmission in classrooms becomes a huge problem because of the variant.

    I have no problems if someone wants to do drugs. As long as they're not harming anyone around them and they contribute to offset the health costs, like smokers do with tobacco tax.

    I've seen some billboards around the city. Suspect those aren't hugely successful to people who have already made up their mind against them, but it is never a bad thing to have those things mentioned and mentioned often.

    if the NFL, NBA, baseball, hockey, depended on ticket sales as much as the cfl, they would be in the same boat. not the same situation at all. but the general silence from the league is pretty bad.

    They waited until he was secure then jumped him. It was a premeditated attack on an unarmed man. This is not a lack of training but an intentional assault.

    I got the active 2. it. I got a used one of kijiji for like 125 i think? it's a hidden feature, but I actually enabled it to measure blood pressure. There's youtube videos on how to do it. In korea it's approved but in NA the blood pressure monitor is not FDA approved so it doesn't come pre-installed. waterproof, tracking workouts, walks, bpm all work well. phone functions well worth every penny
