Sorry to sound miserable but vaccination doesn't allow a complete return to normal. You can still get the virus and pass it on (although chances are lower). Keep social distancing for the moment, vaccinated or not.

So unless you're really old, or have issues, why? Apparently, you can still get it (even get it again) and still pass it. Not looking for a pissing match, just curious.

Because *if* you get it (although the vaccine greatly improves your chances of NOT getting it), the odds are that it will be like Covid-light, with mild symptoms.

The cheapest and easiest to store of the vaccines gets US approval: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-56479462

79% effective at prevention (I recall the UK and EU studies rated it a bit higher) and, most importantly, 100% effective at preventing serious illness.

Just a little silliness to add here.

One of my younger bro-in-laws is getting his first Covid shot this week with the sickly folks.  His BMI is higher than the charts would like him to be.  The silly part is that he's fit and lean, but all muscle.  He's been an athlete all his life, regularly plays several team sports, and lifts weights.  But he's been notified that he can get his shot now because his BMI puts him in the obese category.

I received my first shot last Monday with the second scheduled three weeks from that date.  Sheri and I have a kayak trip planned the week of Memorial Day and we'll both be inoculated by then.  I am so excited to get this all behind me that I've already booked a week-long motorcycle trip later this year and a long weekend hiking trip in Utah.  It felt so good to book travel.

If you haven't done much hiking in Utah, I have some suggestions:

Absolute must is the Virgin River Narrows.  We did it as an overnighter from the top down.  Required a ride to the opposite end to start. 

Halls Creek Narrows was pretty amazing as well but you gotta work for that one.

Thanks.  This will be my third time to Utah.  It and Maine are my main "outdoor" destinations.  :)

My niece is graduating college and I'm taking her to hike the Narrows and Angel's Landing.   :bigok:

We'll wrap up the trip on her birthday in Vegas w/ dinner.

psychology of the mask is something I would like to understand more.  I just don't get it? Of course I live in that renegade state that is killing people left and right, or whatever one cares to believe.  But overall most people are pretty careful. There are those select individuals that boggle the mind though. the ones driving alone in their car with a mask are commonly made fun of but the ones that get me are the ones that wear that mask while riding their bike on the bike path (nobody near them), then take it off, go sit at the brewery in close proximity to dozens of other people for an hour, then put the mask back on to ride their bike home alone?? please explain the logic to me?

We went to Fourstring's brother's house on Saturday. All of a sudden I felt reeaaallllly tired and fell dead asleep on their chaise. Maybe the vaccine? I reported it on my CDC check-in text.

Speaking of which, is anyone else participating in the vsafe program?

Some people got their wish. I got the rona! I had a fever and mostly just slept for 3 days. After that I was good to go and felt good. Lung issues and breathing difficulties never entered into it. Taste and smell are returning. To those who wished me ill, HA HA Bitches! I'm back at work!

My wife faired even better, her fever wasn't as high as mine.

I would double check with them on the shot. everyone I know who had the virus has been required to wait 90 days? the coupel that didn't had bad reactions..

Finally scheduled to get my first shot on the 20th. Made it thru Pa,s clusterfuck system.

PA’s system is no system.  Every county does their own thing. 

Here in Montgomery county, residents can register on-line or by phone anytime after their priority classification opens.  The county sends you a one-time one-use PIN number when your spot in the waiting line opens up.  Your pin allows you to make one appointment for your first shot at a time and place of your choosing.  One week before your second shot is due, the county sends you a second pin for your second shot.  No fuss, no mess, no waiting in a long line. 

Next county over, you look on-line to see who has vaccine available, and then call around to see if you can get an appointment.  Smart people in that county have actually gone to other counties to get their shots sooner.  Of course, it’s a bit of a clusterfuck because some people make duplicate appointments that they don’t keep, etc.  just spoke to someone there yesterday who said they have wasted a lot of time without getting an appointment. 

Won’t be surprised if some kickback scandals are uncovered.

get my second shot Monday. it's well run and efficient at an abandon store in the Mall so plenty of room first one was in and out in less than 15 min.
the above are merely the ramblings of a hamfisted fuckwit who has broken too many helmets.

The rate will almost certainly accelerate over the next few months as production ramps up. Even at government speeds (pick a government, any government) it will be at least 80% in a couple of years.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

A current projection speculates “At current global vaccination rates, it will take 4.6 years to achieve worldwide herd immunity against COVID-19.”.  Could be a lot sooner, I hope.

vaccinating the entire human population is kind of important-not just us rich countries-or it'll never go away (and it probably won't go away just become easier to manage)

It's not all bad. My wife and I were at the nursery today (plants not babies) looking for azaleas. A load of manure was brought in.

Wife:  Ewww, do you smell that?

Me:  Nope!   :bigsmile:

A new variant of coronavirus that combines 18 mutations was discovered in Brazil this week. No big surprise there.  Currently reporting more than 4,000 deaths per day, Brazil is one of the world's worst-hit countries.

Also in the news, initial research in Israel is showing signs the Pfizer vaccine isn’t very effective with the African variant.

I'm fully prepared for another huge upswing.  We're figuring on another year of not traveling.  Between the somewhat ridiculous travel policy at work and the reality of not getting paid if I do get it, we'll just close the gates and wait it out...again...still... 

Any short people wanna buy a really nice travel trailer?

wait for the peer review. I guess. however, there does seem to be an increase in infection of the South African variant in those vaccinated with Pfizer.

in other news, the 3 countries with the best vaccine roll out-Israel (way ahead of everyone). Chile and the UK are getting differing infection rates. it appears that the vaccine has meant, in Chile, that people are much less cautious and social distancing and mask wearing is reduced-resulting in an increase in infection rates.

also, the first world has grabbed most of the vaccines, which means developing nations won't have much. this presents a risk to everyone. I think I agree with those countries calling for the patents to be lifted and the vaccines to be allowed to be made anywhere by anyone-quality control will have to be the responsibility of the host country. Only Astra Zeneca is not making a profit out of Covid.
