It’s Vaccination Day! – “For The First Time In Forever” Frozen Parody VideoThe Funniest by Far!!
This video made me smile ;> I am FREE and am starting to return to my pre-pandemic life!! I know exactly how it feels. I was fully vaccinated on March 5 and am waiting for more friends to be vaccinated so we can get together inside without masks!! Eating outside is tough when it is cold or rainy.
If you are fully vaccinated, you know what this is like. Well… maybe just singing and jumping in your mind :> If not vaccinated yet, this is what will be coming.
If nothing else, you won’t have to worry about getting Covid and going to the hospital and maybe dying. Or, won’t get Long Covid (aka becoming a Long Hauler) and be chronically sick for months, which can happen to anyone of any age or health status. Estimated 20-30% of those who get Covid get it. Many never went to the doctor and recovered quickly. The long Covid symptoms showed up later. Some that were infected last March still have significant problems
PBS Newshour 8 minutes. President Biden says we need a wartime approach to the pandemic? When can we get vaccinated? I got my first shot on January 21 – Moderna. I was very, very lucky, and feel some survivor guilt that I got mine ahead of people a lot older and sicker.
To look a little deeper at the Biden administration’s plan for the pandemic and just how steep a hill it has to climb, I’m joined now by Dr. Michael Osterholm. He runs the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, and he recently served on the Biden team’s Coronavirus Advisory Board.
I have been listening to Dr. Osterholm’s weekly podcast, The Osterholm Update Covid-19, since soon after it started in March 2020. He speaks to the audience very personally and is understandable. Focuses on current topics. About 1 hour each.
There is a conflict between older people who are much more likely to die and essential workers of all ages who are exposed to the virus when working.The CDC included both groups in each phase, with 75+ given priority over 65+ to 74. Risk increases dramatically as you get older. See the table below.
Opening vaccinations on January 13 to all 65+ persons instead of 75+ was a very big mistake in many California countiesand in other states.Essential workers are not included.
