    Covid-19

    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 😀

    The biggest "effort" I've seen to that effect is having the higher profile people (Dr. Roussen, Premier Pallister, etc.) getting their AstraZenecca vaccinations posted online and on the news.

    Here's the website for Shoppers/Loblaws: https://shoppers-drug-mart.c.eforms.loblaw.ca/#/covid/covid-19-vaccine-patient-registration/Welcome/0?lang=en They aren't updated yet with the new criteria though.

    Just saw this at the bottom of the Eligibility Criteria website: Medical Clinics and Pharmacies The AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccine is used to provide COVID-19 vaccines in doctors’ offices and pharmacies. Manitoba public health officials have developed guidance for the use of the AstraZeneca/Covishield vaccine.

    That should be a variant, not the variant... there are a few of them floating around (South Africa, UK, Brazil). My understanding is that the Brazil one is the one of most concern, and hasn't arrived in Manitoba yet, but it's likely just a matter of time.

    Eligible ages are going down again per the Eligibility Website Individuals: 64 years of age and older (NEW: expanded from aged 65 or older) 44 years of age and older for First Nation people (NEW: expanded from aged 45 or older)
  7. As evidenced by the sheer number of people who seem to ignore the guidelines, I would agree with this. There is a pent up desire among a lot of people to get out and socialize, so I expect that as things continue to open up, most people will be out and about more and more.

    Some really good news, if they are able to make it happen: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/manitoba-covid-19-vaccine-timeline-1.5938069
  9. So a few refs make some bad calls, but because the female ref made one of the questionable calls, you're questioning whether she should have even been there? What about the refs who made the other questionable calls, should they have been working that game? 🤔 In real time, that one looked to me like a good call, but when they showed the replay you could see that the receiver basically tripped on his own feet. The ref who threw the flag (at least the one that I saw) would have had the receiver running straight at him (or her, not sure which ref was in that spot) and it definitely could
  10. I'm wondering if the delay in signing Harris is that he's taking the team first attitude and letting Walters take care of signing the rest of the team and then Harris is willing to come in and "take what's left" as it were for his salary.

    And they got to skip over all of the usual waiting between trials because they already had the funding that they usually have to wait on. The actual trial steps were complete.

    Don't think so... see my message above. Apparently everything is as usual without the red tape and time consuming process of getting money approved. Everything else is following proper protocols. Unfortunately I don't have a source for that, I think I heard it on CBC radio a week or so back.

    I've heard that another contributing factor was that nobody had to stop between stages to try and raise money for the next stage because it had already been allocated, unlike when they are doing other vaccines. All of the trials and stages are taking the usual amount of time without the red tape to slow things down.
