I'm beginning to understand why the anti-maskers and COVID deniers appear to be so angry and frustrated.

Researchers report COVID-19 found in penile tissue could contribute to ED

by University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine

MAY 11, 2021

 

University of Miami Miller School of Medicine researchers are the first to demonstrate that COVID-19 can be present in the penis tissue long after men recover from the virus.

The widespread blood vessel dysfunction, or endothelial dysfunction, that results from the COVID-19 infection could then contribute to erectile dysfunction, or ED, according to the study recently published in the World Journal of Men's Health. Endothelial dysfunction is a condition in which the lining of the small blood vessels fails to perform all of its functions normally. As a result, the tissues supplied by those vessels could undergo damage.

It's going to be a bit of a roller coaster ride for the next little while, didn't have to be but what's done is done and at least the younger people for the most part are on board for vaccinations and that will help bring down the numbers

yeah even if Dr.Tam does say it's safe to go about without masks when fully vaccinated, I'm not going to take off the mask until new cases become less frequent (because the article says Bill Maher is fully vaccinated and yes they've made it perfectly clear that the vaccine keeps you from ending up dead or in the hospital or getting the worst of it)

12+ can book right now in Manitoba. Curious how far out they're making appointments at the supersites? 

My kids' buddy got in for the 21st.  Not sure which location though.

 

I'm "in line" and will update once I get my kids have their appointments.

From the just because you got vaccinated file, as most of us may know or not know the vaccine does not mean you wont get Covid, which brings me to a story from my Yankees baseball team where vaccinated coaches and personnel from the team who have been vaccinated caught Covid, all are asymptomatic, this where it gets interesting as their shortstop Gleybor Torres who caught Covid in the offseason and was also recently vaccinated caught the virus again, it may be rare but it will happen

Got my kids in on the 22nd in the evening.  So booking a little over a week out for RBC.

They must have opened up a bunch of spaces at RBC, when it went to 24+ earlier in the week they were booking as far as the 28th. The earliest my son could book was the 22nd in Selkirk.

With AZ/JJ on the wayside apparently it will be where ever P/M are.

Since they are 12-18, it would only be Pfizer.  Heard from another friend who got an appointment about an hour after I did and their kid is going in on the 28th, so those appointments filled up fast.

Very encouraging that there's so much uptake.

Alberta has JUST peaked (we're pretty sure) and I think we're a couple weeks ahead of you guys.......so i would THINK that you guys are a couple weeks away from the crest of the wave, but who knows.....
