Those with religious or political hesitancy were never reachable unless the incentive is something they really want enough (ability to travel etc.)
I have lots of friends that fully support ex pres Trump (not me!), but they are all reasonable people and got the vaccine as soon as available. I have relatives that are uber christian "righties" and really good people and there is no moving them from their anti vaccine stance.
There was a picture in the paper this am taken at the Nascar event this weekend. Full stands of people shoulder to shoulder and without masks. I guess we shall see how it works out.
Any idea why the numbers are so high? That is a pretty good vaccination rate.
Everything here is pretty much "back to normal" and the 2-3% positivity rate seems stable. I think for Tarrant county the vaccination rate is about 50ish percent for fully vaccinated.
What a great fully vaccinated rate for PA.
Here in North Texas our positivity rate has stayed at 6 - 7% for quite some time. Almost seems like we cannot get below that. I read California has 0.6 or something. That seems hard to believe after they were so bad not very long ago.
You are 23 and and relatively free from responsibilities. Use your salary to get the education needed to do something else. Why suffer or try to make something you hate fit? Just use it to get what you want. You have to work for a very long time. Move onto something else now while you can.
Thank you for the updates.
I agree that the lack of people willing to have the vaccine is disappointing. I guess herd immunity was a pipe dream.
That seems nuts to admit a Covid case to a surgical ICU!
Thank you all for the updates. I was really wondering how things were looking now. Seems like "business as usual" here in DFW although the majority I see out and about are wearing their masks despite lifting the mandate. Traffic is back to awful and restaurants are definitely crowded.
Are you seeing the trend of younger people (30's and 40's) being hospitalized now?
Seems like they were practically begging people to sign up for vaccinations on the news. Any age and no appt. needed as wait lists are almost done and so much vaccine available. I hope they start taking it to peoples work places and under served communities. Colleges too!
I got my 2nd dose of Moderna vaccine yesterday am. I normally never react to vaccines. Woke up today feeling like hammered dog poo. However, I did a very light work out, took a hot shower and 2 Ibuprofen, and an hour after that felt 80% better.
