It's really maddening because most of them are privileged and many are even highly educated.

Guess i lumped them in with Karen.

I’m very accustomed to the group you’re talking about. The yoga world looks down on you if you say you’re going to a western medicine doctor or worse if you’re taking antibiotics. Cause don’t you know there’s a plant in the jungles of South America that cures cancer, but big pharma has silenced the holistic medicine field

To each their own but it’s challenging in times like these where we need actual science

Level of education seems to have very little to do with people's rejection of vaccines.

I work with nurses and other members of staff that work on cancer trials, including cancer trials involving the use of mRNA based vaccines, which the likes of Pfizer have repurposed for their current vaccine, but are hesitant about getting vaccinated or have nebulous non-specific concerns and don't want to get it.

There is a weird emotional response related to it that doesn't seem to be affected by any educational attainment.

Hoping to hear in the next month or two about getting vaccinated, since the UK is getting receipt of about 800,000 doses next week, depends a bit how the prioritisation works out.

They should do what’s right and return the world to normalcy.


It sounds far-fetched, but that’s basically how Brazil developed the leading anti-HIV program in the world 20 years ago: breaking patents and offering generic drugs for free for anyone who needed treatment.

On a much lighter note, Adam's covid isolation look is becoming very Santa/David Letterman

We're officially a COVID household now too.

My son came home from school on Wednesday pale as a ghost, so lethargic that he could barely stand, deep purple spots under his eyes and complained that his legs were hurting. He had no appetite and was totally out of it, so not even thinking of COVID when we took him to emerg. The doctor there ran a leukemia panel (which shaved at least 10 years off my life) and said as a by the way thing, let's run a COVID test. Well today (72 hrs later, do better Toronto) they notified us that he's COVID+ and scheduled testing for my husband, daughter and myself. Husband and I are fairly ill, and our daughter remains asymptomatic. We all have totally different symptoms, which is maddening.

After the initial shock, I almost felt a perverse sense of relief to have it over with.

I hope you all get well soon Martina, with no lasting effects. How frightening that must have been, the leukemia panel. I don't understand a dr not thinking covid test first. Most seem to think worst case scenario first, sometimes that is a good thing. So stressful.

Sorry to hear, anitram. I can imagine the stress while waiting for those tests results. Hope you all feel better real soon.

Thanks everyone!

It was a known risk when we elected to send him back to school in-person this September. Overall I still think it was better for him mentally, emotionally and academically to be in a classroom again so I don’t really feel like it was a wrong choice per se. I am concerned about my parents and in-laws, who picked the kids up for us twice about 8-9 days ago - we were moving so needed the extra help and childcare is one of those exemptions. Of the 4 grandparents only my Mom has a mild cold which she says feels like a sinus infection. The other 3 are all asymptomatic but they’re testing tomorrow and Monday in any case.

Hope the entire family gets better quickly with no lasting effects.
Though I think the leukemia panel would have scared me way more than a positive Covid diagnosis for my son. That's some scary shit to hear, glad it wasn't that or anything similar.

WASHINGTON — The head of the U.S. vaccine development effort said Sunday he believes the COVID-19 vaccine could have long-lasting effect once distributed.

Dr. Moncef Slaoui told CNN’s “State of the Union” that only time will tell for certain, but that in his opinion, the vaccine’s effectiveness could last for “many, many years,” with older people and others who are more vulnerable requiring a booster every three to five years.


He said that one of the hallmarks of immune systems is memory, so the body’s response to the coronavirus will be much faster once vaccinated.


Still, Slaoui said it’s not known whether vaccinated persons could spread the virus to others even if protected themselves. He said there may be an initial indication on that sometime in February or March.


Slaoui stressed that the continuing unknowns make it important for people to remain cautious and take safeguards to protect themselves and others against COVID-19.

He said that once 70 to 80% of the population is vaccinated, “the virus will go down.”

Good luck to you and your family Anitram. Agree with the mindset of getting it over with. Get over it, and never get it again!


News that Rudy is in the hospital. Love that this man spent the last year, and especially the last few months not wearing a mask, openly mocking the pandemic, and now when the rest of us may not be able to get a hospital bed because they’re full, this guy gets the best medical care in the country on our dime.
