@Littleronin Hope you feel better soon. Sounds nasty even with the vaccine. More and more people in my circles have tested positive over the last month.


I am feeling better. So is my son. Just an observation but my wife had her booster and didn't get infected while my son and I have not received it and both got sick. Just saying the booster might be all that it is cracked up to be for those that received their initial doses back in February/March of the year.

Looks like we're #1 again.  Not really sure how to feel about this, I'm boosted, I've done all I can to protect myself, and I just cannot muster up concern for those who refuse a vaccine at this point.  I would love to know what it is about this state that causes such drastic spikes in cases.  We were the oddball state at the beginning of the pandemic too.  Our vaccination rate isn't amazing, but it's also far from the worst.  We're at 70% with at least one dose.

Michigan catapulted Tuesday to the worst COVID-19 hot spot in the nation, as the case rate rose to 503.8 per 100,000 residents, according to the CDC.

A delivery of about three million doses is expected in the coming days, enough for a first dose for every Canadian child between ages five and 11.

 

Sounds like some provinces, after seeing the positive results of delayed doses, will be recommending an eight-week gap between doses.

Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro's media company, The Daily Wire, announced on Thursday that it had filed a lawsuit challenging the Biden administration's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

So due to the lottery and the 6th circuit winning the consolidation of all the cases, it is highly likely that Shapiro’s Daily Wire will be the named petitioner in the case as they were apparently the first in the 6th to file suit.

 

If so when this goes to SCOTUS and the mandate is invalidated by the court, it will be Daily Wire v OSHA with a Daily Wire win

 

@Kal-El814, how much do you hate this?

My city is the capital of the province, and most of the provincial ministries and crown corporations occupy the downtown office towers. Even as they were advising people to work from home if they could, they ordered all their employees back into the office because the downtown core was dying from a lack of people going to restaurants and shops on their lunch breaks. It was ridiculous. Yes, it does suck that many restaurants are dying. But at the same time...maybe people were spending too much money on restaurants to begin with. It's not the government's job to tell people where to spend their money and keep unneeded companies afloat.

Health Canada has authorized the first COVID-19 vaccine for children, giving the regulatory green light to Pfizer-BioNTech's two-dose vaccine. Children ages five to 11 are now eligible to receive this vaccine, in a smaller dosage than has been offered to those ages 12 and above.

We really should redo the census given that something like a million+ Americans will have died of covid when all is said and done

 

I mean the fact that we know the last administration was intentionally fucking with the census seems like reason enough.

It wouldn't surprise me if the partisan split in cases & deaths in this coming wave is bigger than it's ever been, when you combine these news studies that the booster shot seems to bring your protection beyond what the first two shots gave you at start with the fact that conservative media seems more dug in than ever on "MANDATES ARE TYRANNY" shit. Also, I dunno about you guys, but my employer hasn't said a word about booster shots after they were actively trying to get everybody vaccinated as soon as possible during the spring.

Every subsequent wave from the time the vaccines were available going into the future is going to have more and more of a partisan split. That's going to be even more so the case with children 5 and up getting vaccinated and boosters going to all.

I HIGHLY recommend this documentary series on the history of the battle against smallpox:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The most recent episode (#5) specifically focuses on the anti-vaccination movement in England in the late 1800s and you will undeniably hear the echoes of the modern movement - there really is nothing new under the sun.  What the episode does an excellent job of is tying that particular anti-vaccination movement to the underlying social, political, and economic context of that period.
