Right now Stacey is heading to Texas to hopefully effect

I think it's more a race against an unknown or yet developed mutation vs. any of the existing/known mutations.

The vaccines we have approved here all seem to be still effective against the various mutations.

AstraZeneca's vaccine appears to have issues with the South African mutation, which is a problem for sure, but that particular vaccine isn't approved in the US.

Once J&J is approved, provides it does t show issues with the mutations, it could be a real game changer.

We're also fast approaching warmer weather. Keep an emphasis on outdoor dining through the spring, keep mask wearing going, keep the vaccines coming... there's a light at the end of the tunnel that can finally be seen.

I meant it's a race to get vaccinated before the UK variant takes over as the dominant strain. There's risk we still have one more big surge to get through if we can't get enough vaccines in arms.

Luckily the next month isn't really much for holidays or events so we shouldn't have giant super spreader events (minus a potential flare up of Super Bowl Sunday).

The most promising aspect of the vaccines, minus the AZ one (only cause it's data seems to be a mess) is that they prevent severe illness. I am curious to see if the vaccines also prevent some of the damage we see in asymptomatic infection.

Despite our horrific roll out, we're actually on pace to achieve herd immunity this year - well in advance of other western nations. And the roll out will only improve now that there's competent leadership at the federal level, not to mention the increase in types of vaccines.

And this decrease is happening while we're still in winter. Aa we move into March/April we'll see the cases start to drop on their own as more people move outdoors. Combine it with the vaccine and I'm really bullish on what the summer could bring.

I think by fall we could be in a situation where yes, there will still be the occasional flare up, but it'll be more localized and easier to stamp out.

Frankly the most encouraging sign that this is working is Florida. Cases are declining and, well, this is florida.

side note - The "we'll never go back to normal telecommuting is here to stay" trend also seems to be doing out. Zoom Fatigue is real and people are getting sick and tired of looking at a fucking screen all day.

I refuse to buy into the negative projections of the media and some medical people regarding things getting better. Basically because my mental health can't take it.

Both of the diabetic members of my family are getting their first vaccine doses this week.

That's great news. My diabetic brother is getting his first dose next week, at his dr's office.

My state has been given an F for vaccine rollout and distribution. And it's well deserved. It makes me very angry, and I blame the governor. A resident who is home on maternity leave created an easier better web site for vaccine appointments than our state government did.

I should be getting my first dose - shot within the next few weeks. My company released a letter to most of us saying because we are a medical device manufacturer, we fall into the next tier.

Have to show the letter and my badge (or other proof of employment) and I’m good to go. Was not expecting to be eligible this soon but I’m gonna take advantage

Sounds like LA teachers will start being vaccinated in the next 2-3 weeks, so I suspect I'll be receiving my dose at some point in March.

I better come up with a pre-existing condition fast because apparently the government thought I was expendable enough to make me come into work from day 0 of this pandemic but not worth it to vax me up.

Which for me is totally the right thing to do re: me waiting my turn, because my workplace is pretty non-exposure, but wow do I feel bad for grocery workers and foodservice people, who really really got the shit end of the stick.

I have a friend who is with a marketing agency that has a government contract who has received the vaccine because he's technically doing government work.

I'd dig into this more. You might be eligible already. He's in Virginia so may be different rules.

I read one report that said it's actually 48.Baker is good at restrictions and lecturing us like children. But getting a life saving vaccine out that they knew was coming, nope. And he takes no responsibility for that, just makes excuses.
