Kids spend too much time on their damn phones anyway....why should we boost their signal?

That's great and all, but get the f*cking vaccine ready for under 5!

Good news!  I live near a grade school.  Soon, I should have full bars on my cell phone.

Now do under 5.

They are trying, but the science is obviously very tricky with that age group, and the risk from covid to the kids in that group is almost negligible, so it makes sense to be cautious.

Yes, they can be vectors for spread, but if you are compromised, or not adequately vaccinated, avoid licking 3 year olds, which just seems like good life advice in general, and you will be fine.

Yes yes, i know your cousin's college roommates neighbors aunt has a 4 year old that she can only send to a group day care, and can not be vaccinated, yet somehow never leaves the house for anything else and any other cold a kid brings home isn't a serious risk for her.

Sources say the new seats will allow children to reach the xbox more easily, while ensuring parents never have to worry about their children ever reaching proper developmental milestones....

IRestoreFurniture: Uh...I'm not sure the point you're trying to make withh your post, but I'd like to see a cite for this as well an data analysis.


He is leaving out additional data.

It doesn't mean the vaccine is only 50% lesser in preventing death. It just means regardless you have a population that is a stiff breeze away from dying, and even the mildest case of covid which you and i wouldn't notice, will take out 95 year old 2 pack of smokes a day Granny who is already on supplemental oxygen, and a slip in the shower or a shocking moment in matlock away from kicking the bucket. Or Fatty McFatterson, or whatever.

The higher vaccination rate would have reduced spread, but a good number of those folks would have still died in that time frame.

To make the claim that the vaccine in that time range is only 50% effective in preventing death, you need to break out the data much further, look at excess death rate numbers, adjust for co-morbidities, etc.

Yes, its probably only 50% as good in specific high risk people, but even that is pretty damn good. For someone not in that group, its vastly more effective.

Sorry, 5G wavelengths have a range of about 1,000 feet, so I don't think you're allowed to get that close.

5G is a poorly defined standard. There's 5G UW, which gets you the obscene bandwidth. Then there's 5G low band, which is a minor upgrade to 4G but it also goes out pretty far.

Well..I made it nearly 2 years w/o getting covid.  Got it on a work trip to floriduh.
This shiat is legit...it kicked my ass...I am vaccinated and already feeling better after 2 days.
Get your crotch fruit vaccinated.

And i know you cherry picking your data and saying its only 50% effective makes it seem like covid is that scary and we need to be careful about it and whatever, and you think you are helping, but really what you are doing is giving fuel to other people bad at math who the vaccine would be highly effective for, who will now go, "well what is the point".

Thanks.  I understand there are different outcomes for vaccination based upon certain factors.

What I was trying to do was to get the OP to verify that he looked at his posted chart and said "See!  Vaccines are only 50% effective"

Because that's not how that works.  That's not how any of that works...

Great news! Now I'm wondering if it's best to wait until end of August so they'll be all primed and ready for the new school year, instead of getting it now and have it wane just in time for fall

serious question: what's the deal with a 4th dose for adults?

seems like they're fairly confident that your immunity declines after about 4 or 5 months. I'd wager most booster folks got their booster before Christmas time.. so if the late summer surge hits like it did last year with delta... wesa gonna die? Feel like there should be more info out about this but google is not my friend on the topic.

I got my fourth shot yesterday. I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed it didn't make me sick. I would have enjoyed a day off.

First shot did nothing to me other than cause me to wake up in the middle of the night hot and covered in sweat. I was fine an hour later. Second shot made me sick as hell. Third shot gave me a headache. Fourth shot...nothing it seems.

There were a couple studies that came out, and the consensus was no 4th shot for everyone - only for the most at risk.

Diminishing returns, additional boosters were losing effectiveness at an accelerating rate, and the new variants aren't targeted by the existing vaccines.

Not to say another variant-specific shot won't be a thing, just that the ones we have are pretty much played out.

Hey mods, what is with deleting a comment, that was then reasonably discussed and we actually had meaningful agreement on, as to why it was wrong?

Was it because it was wrong, or the ZOMG WE ARE ALL GOING TO DIE was reasonably agreed upon as being the wrong take?
