    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!

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    I agree however there are varying levels of 'harm to others' that create debate about interpretation and severity.

    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.

    Trump Dreams Up Nefarious Plot That Pfizer and FDA Are Behind J&J Pause During his first on-camera interview since leaving office three months ago, former President Donald Trump did what he does best on Monday night: make unsubstantiated claims and provide little to no evidence to back them up. Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Trump suggested that federal health agencies recommended a pause of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because the Food and Drug Administration is in bed with Pfizer, the manufacturer of one of the other federally approved COVID-19 vaccines. And that is t

    I'm starting to question the validity of the reports of vaccine hesitancy. I've spent the better part of the last few hours trying to get an appointment, and they are few and far between. Managed to get in to the Walmart in Steinbach on Friday 😀

    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.

    I've got an appointment for Moderna/Pfizer on Saturday night, but if I can get a AZ jab prior to that, I'll likely take it.... Alberta doesn't start taking 40+ appts till tomorrow morning so we'll see how it goes.

    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.
