Akili’s therapeutic video game will be tested as a treatment for Covid ‘brain fog’
 

Quote

Akili, which made history last summer by earning regulatory clearance for the first video-game based therapy, now plans to test if its software can help adults suffering from Covid “brain fog.”

....

....

“The technology that we have at Akili is not very specific to one disease area,” Anil Jina, the company’s chief medical officer, told STAT. “It basically improves attention control, which is one of the aspects of cognition, and that is part and parcel of many different disorders.”
He said that while childhood ADHD made sense as an early commercial target, independent investigators have done many small studies on the underlying technology’s efficacy in treating adults for a range of cognitive conditions, including dementia and mild cognitive impairment.

 


And my parents said Video Games were bad for me

That sucks. Which pharmacy was this through? The city (Toronto) run one was crazy organized with multiple checks and even though you're told to bring your confirmation email (has barcode and number), the whole process was handled via them just scanning the barcode on the back my in laws health card. During the whole process you're always moving forward from stage to stage so you never get skipped over or forgotten. 


She got her notice to register online from Shoppers Drug Mart in an email. She never signed up to receive this, but there it was one day. She actually had an appointment for the 23rd and then they bumped her up to today and canceled the older date for her. Don’t know if they take your PC Express info or are being sent the info via the government. Looks like 2 Shoppers, Walmart and 2 Rexall are so far distributing the shots in store for Burlington. Although, an hour later, she got an email confirming her first shot from Shoppers with a “keep an eye out for a follow up email to book your 2nd shot” Funny thing is that her first scheduled appointment had dates listed for her 1st and 2nd shot. Now she doesn’t know when the 2nd shot is, but probably mid/late July. Since her last one had Aug 3rd listed for the 2nd shot, which would of been 2 weeks from now

Korea had 700 cases today, the highest in 3 months. Plus, they just suspended Astra-zeneca vaccinations over blood clot fears. That was pretty much the only vaccine they were doing. I doubt I get my shot until the fall. :(

Man the second Pfizer shot is no joke...Got it around 11:30, and felt fine most of the day other than some arm soreness; then I woke up in the middle of the night absolutely fucking dogged. Fever, aches, headache, sinuses, the whole works. No bueno.

Mom is feeling her shot this morning, says she feels flu like. It’s a pretty nice day but my mom is wearing the heaviest sweeter she can to battle the body chills/pains/aches and a headache that just won’t go away. Yesterday she was doing pretty good, minus the injection spot aching

I feel like the only person on the planet who hasn’t been vaccinated right now 

 

 

I have not been yet. Since the isolation doesn't bother me one bit, I have been fine with a "wait and see until it's readily available" approach. 

 

The vaccine news and availability has been outpacing expectations so much that I finally went online to check options the other night and was surprised to see my state is already mostly opened up with a lot of sites available in my smallish town.

 

I plan on booking an appointment sometime next week.

The U.S. government will allot nearly 85% less Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines to states next week, data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed.

seems bad

 

 

 

Seems bad but the administration presumably already knew this was coming when they moved up the universal eligibility to April 19 on Tuesday so it can't be that big of a deal.

I hope I can get mine before I have to go to jury duty, then use it as an excuse to not go because I feel so bad after the shot 😫

 

If you don't want to do jury duty that badly then just reschedule for the week of Thanksgiving or Christmas.

While not great, we are not currently supply constrained on vaccinations in the US and can continue our current growth pace well into May even with this reduction on the J&J deliveries. Bigger issue here is that it further slows to the progress in the developing world if we need to completely ditch this manufacturer and have another firm retool a facility to produce the J&J vaccine. Hopefully they can fix whatever issues there are and get the lines back up.

Doesn't have to do with the Baltimore facility iirc

The article doesn’t explicitly link it, but it certainly infers it with noting the issue at the Baltimore plant at the end of the article.

 

What would be the reasoning if not the 15 million doses they have to toss out and associated delays with fixing the issue?

Anyone that willingly passes up a Moderna vaccine to wait for a Pfizer is an idiot. That is all.

 

lol people are doing that? I mean, even passing up AstraZeneca or J&J to wait for Pfizer is stupid. Hell, I've seen some people say they'll pass up Pfizer for J&J. None of it makes sense!
