All we have to do is reach what the CDC* calls Herd-Thinning Immunity, which is where the deniers just die and leave the rest of us vaccinated.

3 out of 4 in the citizen house are vaccinated. The 17yo is scheduled now, but it took a bit as they just opened up eligibility to the under 18 crowd.

No, we're not screwed. Most of us have had our shots, we're statistically fine - even with variants out there. There's enough breaks in the transmission chain at this point that the hospitals aren't going to be overrun like before. The antis had their chance, sucks to be them if the croak after we've come this far, but oh well.

Time to party.

2/3 of our household is fully vaccinated.  Unfortunately, that number isn't likely to change any time soon because I don't see FDA approval for young children (she's 4 years old) happening terribly soon.

There was a tweet or instagram that Ivanka Trump posted a few weeks ago where she was getting her shot. So many people were negative about it, likely because of previous things she said and the anger people have towards her, but at the end of the day "shots in arms" needs to be the mantra, even people we may not like.

So let's encourage, cajole, demand, and everything else in our arsenal to get people who are hesitant about getting the vaccine to get it. We all benefit together in this, or we all see our efforts go to shiat because a variant appeared due to the virus having enough hosts to mutate successfully.

No more masks. No more restrictions. Just back to regular life. Wouldn't that be nice?

40% of the population has been told by their leaders that they shouldn't get vaccinated for various BS reasons. Those same leaders have all been vaxxed.

Only speculation on my part, but one of the popular conspiracy theories for a bit was the vaccine sterilizes women, and it might still be trending on mommy blogs.

"Evil gubmint wants the pandemic to never end," say the damn idjits who are the reason the pandemic isn't already over.

We're close though... If you look at Israel's vaccination/case curves, when they passed 50% fully vaccinated was when the rate of cases began to collapse. Another month, and with reduced transmission rate in summer (because of a variety of factors - increased ventilation of homes, increased humidity, temperature and direct sunlight, people spending more time outside), and the CDC is entirely correct - most of the majority-not-stupid parts of the country will virtually eradicate it by summer's end.

Infectious-disease experts caution that the number of new infections remains high. Variants of the virus could emerge with mutations that allow the pathogen to evade vaccines. Immunization hesitancy among large chunks of the population is another concern. High rates of vaccination seen in early April have come down in the past several weeks.

I don't know how to continue to care about people who flat-out refuse to get a life-saving vaccination and who continue to shrug their shoulders when people note that their getting vaccinated would help protect others.

If we really want to persuade the Trumpers to get vaccinated, we should announce they wont be ALLOWED to get the vaccine. It will be WITHHELD from them, by order of Nancy Pelosi.

Since Trumpism is solely an ideology of grievance, they will immediately demand their right to get the vaccine, and will get the shot just to own the libs.

Which you should be cool with before giving something to someone who has no say in the matter. I'm not trying to say be afraid of the vaccine, or anything like that, but when we get down below say, 16 or so....lets make sure we are good on stuff and get it right out of the gate. For obvious reasons the testing on that takes much longer.

My 6 year old will get it as part of her normal vaccines once the data is in that it is safe for her age group. Kids that age are about as low risk as it is, and really just need to be looked at as potential vectors, where if everyone around them who can be vaccinated is.....aren't a huge risk.

I get my second shot next Wednesday.

When I first looked online for setting up an appointment, oh so long ago, I only hit the places mentioned in the news. None of them had time available until summer. So I put it off figuring I'm a homebody so there is no hurry. Then one day my SO mentioned that her brothers were getting their shots and they were driving an hour or so to get there. I thought that was crazy, drive an hour for a shot? No thanks. But it got me to thinking (I do that sometimes) so I looked online but this time I looked at local places. My local Walgreens didn't have any openings until summer, go figure. But I thought, what about the Walgreens 15 minutes down the road? They had 5 available slots open that day and 19 the next day. So the next day I got my first shot and I only drove 15 minutes to get there.

So it's possible that some of the hesitation of getting the shots is just that people never thought to look locally. Or they're people that don't want 5G.

Well, yeah, I get that.  The thing is that even though her mom and I are both vaccinated, we still have to take all the precautions we did before being vaccinated because we don't want to take any unnecessary risks of getting the kid infected.  Fortunately, her daycare is provided by her grandmothers (all four grandparents are fully vaccinated, as are my niece and nephew who live with my parents).

Before Covid, she was enamored with trains, so one of the fun things we used to do together was take Saturday-morning train rides on our local commuter rail system.  It's been about 16 months since we've been able to do that, and she still talks about how much she misses riding on the trains.

So weird that it's a Democratic hoax and yet all wealthy Republicans are almost 100% vaccinated (even cheated to get vaccines for themselves ahead of everybody else). Even some of the vaccinated Republicans still preach anti-vax crap, to try to get other people to stay unvaccinated. Then you've got all kinds of random (foreign) accounts on the internet spouting anti-vax stuff.
