It's currently closed through at least July 21, and I can't imagine it'll be opened up at that time.  Really, it's looking like it'll be closed until either the US gets things under control, or an effective vaccine is developed.  Probably the latter.

Yes 72%
No 14%
Not sure 13%
Other / No opinion 1%

28% did not say "yes" when asked if they would get vaccinated against a global pandemic that has killed nearly 130,000 Americans (probably far more than that).

That's like asking someone if they would accept a job at Walmart.

I might. I might not. I need details. Cashier...I would probably decline. Senior level executive, of course.

Asking me if I would get a vaccine for X or not is equally meaningless. How effective is it, what are the side effects, and how common are those side effects?

The only sane answer right now is 'maybe' but most of us have been brainwashed to worker think vaccines are perfect, or vaccines are evil.

And before anyone calls me anti-vax... Please realize that even if you have gotten your recommended vaccinations, you still haven't gotten countless other vaccines that are available. You/your doctor doesn't bother with them because the risks outweigh the benefits.

Heck, last I heard the medical committee hasn't even decided how long it takes before you can get reinfected, or even if you can get reinfected.

I'd sell it to the public by telling them "We're gonna put a little mark on people when they get vaccinated. You won't be allowed in businesses, allowed in school, allowed to work, or allowed to buy anything unless you have this mark."

I bet that would convince the anti-vaxxers to cooperate.

And while we are at it, lets make the flu vaccine free for all and required unless there is a health reason. And then how about a free Shingles vaccine?  It is damn expensive.  More people would take it if it was not so farking expensive.

A CNN poll last month found one-third of Americans said they would not try to get vaccinated against Covid, even if the vaccine is widely available and low cost.

I'm sure that an equivalent poll of Canadians would have a number higher than I'm comfortable with.

But damn, hopefully it'd be less than 1 in 3.

You know it might kill you, right?

Fine. Then those who refuse to be vaccinated for non-medical reasons can be restricted to their homes and fired from their jobs. If they refuse to be socially responsible then we have to use other means to restrict their ability to spread disease.

You know what? You get a Smart for that. I made the assumption of safe/effective, but who knows what we'll actually get.

That being said, I will still take what we get. C-19 will likely kill me if I get it, so some side effects are OK in my book.

A mark?  Are you serious?  Just inject a microchip along with the vaccine.  Put someone with tech experience, say Bill Gates, in charge of that.

Honest to God, we're probably better off as a society now if we just untied the United States and somehow orchestrated a peaceful, Indian-Pakistani style migration that allowed people to relocate to designated liberal or conservative states before the break-up became official.  The stupid in this country is far too set in to be eradicated, and we're better off allowing the smart to separate themselves from the stupid.

I don't think the death curve is apt to follow positive case curve like it did earlier. The age range where death is a common outcome is not rising in the hot spot sections of the country. In Florida's curves (see the NYTimes daily charts), cases have been rising since June 1, while deaths have been steady. Florida's newly infected are primarily in the 20-40 age range, so far, and they don't die anywhere near as commonly as the 60+ crowd. If the young people spread it to nursing homes a lot more, which is certainly possible, that's when deaths will suddenly skyrocket.

Here's my issue. I have vaccinated for everything I need. I get my yearly flu shot. My kids are up to date. I don't want to be in the first round, and call me crazy but ant vaccine that comes from trump and his cronies is suspect to me.

[Fark user image image 600x682]


Those charts tell me something else.

There's at least a 2-week lag from infected to dead. Prior to the middle of June, both cases and deaths were dropping steadily. Cases started shooting up in the middle of June, but the last dead person on the chart likely contracted the virus (became a new case) in the middle of June.

Now, I don't think we'll see the same rise in deaths (younger people do have a better survival rate)... but I'm betting we'll see a jump in deaths over the next week followed by a bigger jump over the second week of July.

Almost 20000 new cases at the end of last week in Fla. That may result in an addition 500 to 1000 deaths. Add that to the current rate/day and it's going to start spiking again. Especially if that volume of new cases continues.
