Side affects are never a big concern. Unless, of course, you are the one that gets them. 
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.

Oh what the hell... I’m bored as hell and the reaction to Covid in stimulating the growth of ignorance is pissing me off so I’m going waaaaay off topic to suggest that the serious discussion on the letter “H” was incomplete. The reason?
Let it be known that as a native of Montreal I am fully aware of my all time favourite cultural anomaly: in Quebec if a word begins with the letter “H” then it’s NOT pronounced. And if a word begins with the letter “I” then obviously you pronounce it by ADDING the letter “H”.
Example: In the game of ockey they drop the puck at centre hice.
Got it?
Carry on and Merry Christmas to those of you for whom it actually matters....

Hey, you don't suppose that some non-Quebecois noticed the perfectly normal, though local pronunciation you are describing, and assumed the speakers were exhibiting side effects!!!

it's all beginning to come together.

WW84: Streamed this yesterday. While I mostly like all superhero movies, this was not as good as the first stand-alone WW. On the scale of modern WW appearances, I would make it something like:

WW1
JL
WW84
Batman V Superman

...please tell me there isn’t another year of this...

I've been deemed important. Just got my email from CDC with registration and appointment info for vaccination.  I also just learned that it's not a condition of employment.  I'm going to be selfless and allow someone else to have the honor of that dose.

Didn't know whether to post here or the conspiracy thread ...

A local hospital pharmacist has been arrested for intentionally ruining a batch of COVID vaccine.  No explanation of the motive has been announced at this time.  Bizarre.

This is the hospital where my wife's pacer was installed.  We don't think there were any issues with the meds she was given there.  But we're hoping that the explanation, if we ever get one, will not involve issues with other meds that she might have been given.  For example, hospital based addicts have been known to contaminate meds with blood borne pathogens while covering up pain med theft.

Papa,   It looks like very challenging times for NHS workers in Wales.   The graph looks very similar to most of the states in the southeast U.S.   Stay safe.

Thanks. The new variant/ mutation is the problem. It adds 0.7 to the R rate. It's around 60-70% more infectious.

Our rate in Michigan WAY jumped at the beginning of November, peaked towards early December and now are forming  nice bell-shaped curve as they drop again.

My wife gets the vaccine next week, I'll be up for it in a couple weeks.  I have NO problems if people don't want it as long as it's not mission critical to your job (someone else's health).

I know I will get vaccinated when my turn comes,I have been touched far too personally by this pandemic to not get it. Perspective changes when you bury 1 family member and 4 friends who died from  Covid. The last one was a really close friend who just turned 41,we in past years did a lot of hiking together and he was in top physical shape. It literally ate his lungs and heart. Now there are at least 5 members of the museum sick with it 3 are in bad shape and we shut down in November. Do as you wish but life cannot go on if we do nothing.
And a little perspective, more people in the US have died of Covid than US soldiers died in combat during WW2. And we have had Covid less than a year. Figure it out.

It's been bad enough over here but your year sounds something else. I've had 7 colleagues die of this and a few people I have some links to, but no close friends.

I  just hope the anti maskers/ vaxxers see sense.

Reading a couple current articles concerning Oklahoma vaccine numbers. The state has received 174,900 doses. Approx. 60,000 have been administered.

State health department implemented a 4 phase system. Healthcare workers and those older long term care are in the first phase, with first responders, teachers, nursing home residence and workers in the second phase. Surveys are showing only 30 to 45% of healthcare workers in Tulsa and OKC facilities say they will take the vaccine, while the general population is up around 60%.

Here's where there are complaints...  The report, in the Daily Oklahoman, is the slow rate of vaccine administration is due to how slow the healthcare facilities are giving it to themselves. The majority of the general population is reportingly clamoring for it.

it's looking increasingly likely that the new variant was present in the US before it came to the UK.  it's something to be very worried about.

Was at the hospital (unrelated issues)
I was shocked by the number of cars in line for covad testing. I go into the docs once a month for testing and today was the largest line I have seen to date. The staff taking the samples his even increased. They are ramping up...  Upon waking into the hospital it was clear that they are quite serious about who enters and why. 2 staff at the door asking questions and offering facemasks and hand sanitizer. 15 feet down there ai a guy watching a video screen (video screen shows temp of every person entering)   In case anyone is not paying attention the hospital is taking this quite seriously, as in batten down the hatches and prepare for battle stuff...  With all the traveling over the holidays (dolts) things are going to get much worse very soon.

The province of Quebec will be under strict curfew for a month starting Saturday. We have been ordered to stay at home between 8PM and 5AM.
Everything to be closed except essential businesses and services during the day.
Work from home is mandatory. Schools will remain open.

The only exception to the curfew is we are allowed to walk the dog, not more than 1 km from home.
I think I will get a dog.

The jab comes to late for my friend.
I worked side-by-side with him for thirty years, through hell, fire, and even brimstone.
Covid got to his big, soft heart.
RIP, Brother.

To everyone who's lost someone, please accept my condolences. I haven't been touched by COVID (so far), but my heart hurts for everyone who has.

This right here. All our ICU beds are full in our county... and region. Just hunkering down.

Geez Dave that’s horrible. My sympathies to you and his family.
Did he get it at work or do you even know?

“Moderna’s COVID-19 mRNA vaccine is likely to offer protection of up to a couple of years, its chief executive said on Thursday, even though more data is still needed to make a definitive assessment.”

“The nightmare scenario that was described in the media in the spring with a vaccine only working a month or two is, I think, out of the window,” Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel said at an event organised by financial services group Oddo BHF.

“The antibody decay generated by the vaccine in humans goes down very slowly (...) We believe there will be protection potentially for a couple of years.”

Bancel added his company was about to prove that its vaccine would also be effective against variants of the coronavirus seen in Britain and South Africa.

Scientists have said newly developed vaccines should be equally effective against both variants.

CDC: Severe allergic reaction to COVID-19 vaccine 'exceedingly rare'

A severe allergic reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine is "exceedingly rare," reported by 21 of 1.9 million people in the United States who have received the vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Wednesday.

Of those 21 who experienced anaphylaxis after being vaccinated, 17 had a history of similar reactions to other vaccines or medications, the CDC said. All 21 recovered, though some required hospital care.

The data covers vaccine doses administered through Dec. 23.

Cases of anaphylaxis -- a severe, potentially life-threatening reaction that can occur within seconds or minutes of exposure to an allergen -- occurred with both vaccines and "multiple lots" or shipments, according to the CDC.

The rate of reactions amounts to 11.1 cases of anaphylaxis per 1 million doses administered, Messonnier said.

In comparison, the typical season flu vaccine sees 1.3 cases of anaphylaxis per 1 million recipients, she said.

"The rate of anaphylaxis with the COVID vaccines may seem high compared to flu vaccine, but this is still a rare outcome," Messonnier said. "It's paramount people get vaccinated," she said.

Well ... now that the elderly doggo has died, I'm looking forward to some day trips and week trips.  It looks as if the Chicago travel restrictions only apply to people stopping, not traveling through.  So hopefully I can test out my mini-touring bike theory next spring.

Ontario is going into lockdown on Thursday. It’s rampaging out of control.
Thanks ASSHOLES.
My GPS just told me to turn left, then turn left, then turn left, then turn left.
So if I go too far left do I end up right?
