I never get to be first in Mega threads, here I go!

Enjoy your vaccine you sheep!
If you're vaccinated why do you care if I am?
Something, something, experimental, something, emergency use.

I'll leave some for others.

Idiots. They're accountable for every loss of freedom that comes as a result of this bump.

Making protests and outdoor rodeos and can't do their simple part to keep us restriction free.

On boosters, the US is going to have them 8 months after 2nd dose, but they also followed the manufacturer's recommended window between dose 1 and 2 which seems to be not as well-performing as Canada's approach based on vaccines in general which extended that window. I wonder if Canada will go much farther out from the 2nd dose + 8 months for the booster?

Edit: key typo!

I hope not in BC due to my work I was originally 4 weeks apart, as were alot of medical staff and elderly at that time, before they changed it to eight weeks.

We should plan for boosters, but outside of the vulnerable I don't see a need for them in Canada yet.

There’s no scenario under which there won’t be a 5th wave. And a 6th.

The Coronavirus Is Here Forever. This Is How We Live With It.

Quote:
…The transition to endemic COVID-19 is also a psychological one. When everyone has some immunity, a COVID-19 diagnosis becomes as routine as diagnosis of strep or flu—not good news, but not a reason for particular fear or worry or embarrassment either. That means unlearning a year of messaging that said COVID-19 was not just a flu. If the confusion around the CDC dropping mask recommendations for the vaccinated earlier this summer is any indication, this transition to endemicity might be psychologically rocky. Reopening felt too fast for some, too slow for others. “People are having a hard time understanding one another’s risk tolerance,” says Julie Downs, a psychologist who studies health decisions at Carnegie Mellon University.

Why would it take weeks to announce this data? Does it take that long to doctor umm er' show the data

They've added some more poop data. You can click on the coloured areas of the map to see some community data. Looks generally like a gradual rise, but varies depending on area.

What is the CMOH's end game of not being more proactive to stats? She always says she's following the science, but doesn't seem to do anything until the last minute.

(I just wanted to be on page 1)

Good job you bunch of unvaccinated idiots.

It'd be nice if we could shoot them all into space, or stick them on an island somewhere. Morons.
