No, it's not. I didn't write vaccines were no longer helpful, I noted that they were not as helpful.That's very misleading. The vaccines are extremely helpful even with new variants. In some places, over 99% of the people in the hospital and/or dying are unvaccinated. And, yes, that's with the Delta variant. That's excellent protection and extremely helpful.
One shot of Pfizer isn't very effective either. Which is why I find it surprising that Moderna is supposed to be 72% effective after one dose. I wish they'd tell us how they arrive at those numbers and what the average person they looked at looked like. I feel like they're throwing numbers at us but they all tell a different story and how effective the vaccines are against Delta is really up in the air. I'm also not sure how trustworthy the CDC is with their continued "no masks for vaccinated folks" and "no booster shot necessary" guidance. Everything we've seen lately seems to say the opposite is true but I also know we're not seeing the full picture. The question is, does the CDC since I seem to recall something about them stopping to count asymptomatic and mild breakthrough infections, so may their numbers are a little skewed?Yes, and I certainly hope that's true in this case. But a number of posts I've read have been questioning whether the Delta variant passes more easily among vaccinated people than previous variants. I mean, on the one hand, yes, it obviously does because even the most positive studies for Pfizer show that a higher percentage of vaccinated people contract Delta than previous variants. On the other hand, I think the variety of vaccines out there and the low effectiveness rate with one shot of AstraZenica & at least one of the Chinese vaccines may be leading to some confusion. Plus the Yankees & their J&J.
That is interesting that the top three minor symptoms of C after being fully vaccinated is a headache, runny nose and sneezing. I had those things Wednesday and Thursday. I figured it was my allergies as I am allergic to mold and we have had a lot of rain this month plus it has been warm and humid, perfect for mold formation.
With all that is going on and with tons of information floating around, one doesn’t know anymore….
I don't think that will help. People will assume it won't happen to them because they're lucky, or careful, or never get sick. Also, people in hospitals or on ventilators aren't relatable or (I'm sorry to say) interesting.All those full hospitals need to be on TV. People need to see it. I know, patient privacy and all that, but look at the pictures of the kids in the hospital with polio...that had to be effective (not that there were as many deniers around then, probably).
It affects everyday life (certainly in Paris - places are absolutely packed these days!). Also a lot of people are coming up on their annual holiday, which they take in France itself. And regardless of where one goes on holiday, eventually it's back to normal life, which brings us back to the effect on people's daily lives.I don’t understood the young French people who are just now getting vaccinated so to visit a coffeeshop. Travel within Europe is a much more common thing to do, vaccination requirements to visit other countries was inevitable. Were they just gonna remain in France forever?
I think this would really help here. My sister in law will not get vaccinated. She doesn't see the need because she literally never goes more than 30km from her house. They camp right outside of the city for vacations and other than that they stay home. But she does want to do things like take her kids to hockey games and other events.Or, like Macron, restrict access to places people want to go. No vaccination, no fun stuff to do.
People just don't tend to think very much IMO.I don’t understood the young French people who are just now getting vaccinated so to visit a coffeeshop. Travel within Europe is a much more common thing to do, vaccination requirements to visit other countries was inevitable. Were they just gonna remain in France forever?
I would think that would be easily challenged in court. The government is limited in what it can tell private businesses it can and can't do.Except a lot of (stupid, red) state legislatures have passed laws forbidding businesses from requiring either proof of vaccinations or masks.
Or when they see the pictures on TV they will simply say that these people don't have YKW and have something else.I don't think that will help. People will assume it won't happen to them because they're lucky, or careful, or never get sick.
I'm not sure that would work either. There probably is a number of people who'd claim those are made-up stories and people get paid to pay themI'd make it personal - share stories of people affected by CV, especially if they're from the intended audience's community. Personal stories that people can relate to are often more effective. I know that in Israel, it was the death of one pregnant woman and seeing her heartbroken kids that led quite a few pregnant women to overcome their hesitancy about the vaccines a few months back.
This would probably be the only thing that would be effective but as clairecloutier said, probably not doable in the US.Or, like Macron, restrict access to places people want to go. No vaccination, no fun stuff to do.
The article said most of those people were vaccinated with J&J.
28 Fully Vaccinated People Contract ********* at Homeless Shelter in California
I was thinking it was the state of Florida saying CDC guidelines did not have to be enforced, not the cruise lines protesting about the guidelines.An appeals court has blocked a district judge's ruling, allowing CDC cruise lines to remain in effect! https://www.cnn.com/2021/07/18/business/cdc-cruise-ruling/index.html
With 1 out of 5 cases coming from Florida at the moment, I hope the CDC wins but cruises would be smart to adhere to the guidelines anyway. Aside from the fact that that way they don't depend on what the courts rule, they run the risk that they won't be allowed into other ports if they don't.
Yes, and that is likely true of the vast bulk of the homeless population in the U.S.The article said most of those people were vaccinated with J&J.
I feel your pain. My son (who is 10 and too young to be vaccinated) has a horrible mold allergy (as well as dust mites). He is on year round meds for it but consistently sneezes and has a congested/runny nose. I would literally have to test him daily for ********* which isn’t feasible. He still masks indoors and obviously if a new (for him) symptom appeared I would have him tested but I do worry about what if it’s not his allergies…Mystery solved….it’s leaf mold.
I have a potting shed where I have bins of different types of potting material, including leaf compost.
Lady Figureskates wanted some plants repotted so last Wednesday I was out there for about 2 hours, repotting a few pots. The sneezing and runny nose started halfway through. Had the symptoms that night and they started to go away on Thursday.
This morning I went back out to finish the job. I did notice I had a leak in the roof which has been dripping into the leaf compost bin and some of the contents were moldy. I also noticed within about 10 minutes the ole nose started to run and I was sneezing.
One of my biggest allergies is to leaf mold which usually doesn’t appear until October when the leaves are on the ground and there is rain. Since I wasn’t out in the shed that long, the symptoms are going away now that I am back in the house And I changed my clothes.
My big problem now is I am going to have to fix the leak, if it ever stops raining, then get some sort of respirator mask so I can clean out the leaf compost bin in the shed. Until then, I ain’t going out there again…..
