  • In places like the U.S. where vaccines are now easy to obtain, it definitely makes sense to require airline passengers provide proof of vaccination. Other countries, though? Aside from helping them get vaccines, and restricting travel until then, what else can you do?!
  • Thanks for the tag. @julieannegannon The burning is probably due to either just being new to running (i.e. muscles are not ready for that) or electrolytes. Or lactic acid if you are going too fast. The only suggestion without more details is to increase sodium. I don't know about you, but I sweat at 1,085mg/l. For sodium,…
  • I would not be ok with this either, but I have to think this is more common in something like a call center and less common elsewhere. Most in the offices where I've worked are working during the day. I'm in manufacturing and production workers share a "workstation" over multiple shifts. Usually there are 5S/6S practices…
  • I always figure that if I fet married, it will be something small. In some states, you don't need anyone to officiate - just need to sign the paperwork and have witnesses. Colorado is one of those states, and one could quite literally get married with almost nobody around for miles out in the wilderness.
  • I was wondering. I just visited a Target in Spokane, WA today. No signs, but noticed a lot of people without masks, including a lot of employees. So I figured they weren't requiring masks for vaccinated people, but wish they had a sign.
  • Now that I am fully vaccinated, I no longer wear a mask if it isn't required. Wal-Mart and Dollar General are not requiring masks of vaccinated customers, though I know this will be abused by anti-vaxxers. To be fair, they never really enforced masks anyway. But now I am protected and my mask doesn't do much to protect me…
  • My thoughts also. I will wear a mask where the business or ordinance requires it. Wal-Mart, Dollar General, and others no longer require masks for vaccinated customers. I realize many unvaccinated customers will take advantage of this, but these are the same people who never wore a mask even when Wal-Mart policy required…
  • My sister's boyfriend works at a pharmacy in a city with a mask ordinance still in place. A customer came in with no mask and another clerk said something. His response was that the CDC says vaccinated people don't need to wear masks and he has had 1 vaccine, so he figures he is close enough. She said it doesn't matter and…
  • Was going to say the same... open-air cremations are not a Covid thing because of large numbers of deaths. It's just what some Indians do. BTW, remember the mass graves in NYC for unclaimed bodies? We saw the aerial photos of that... and that isn't common in the U.S., but they couldn't hold bodies for long and had to make…
  • When we get the vaccine in the USA, they have a form we fill out with a bunch of questions. I forget how long, but one of the questions is if we have had any other vaccine within the prior X number of day (weeks, months?). I assume they would not give the Covid vaccine if someone marked Yes to that question.
  • I look forward to it. I already have a race scheduled in Bastrop next month.
  • @Scott6255 @quilteryoyo @shanaber Yes, I'm still here, but have not been active in the running group for awhile. I'm still running and I'm still eating carnivore (just plants). Although I do drink no carb caffeinated beverages. I had quit caffeine for a couple months and then got back on it when I moved last month. Yes, it…
  • It sounds like we need better education.
  • I had a pulse oximeter long before Covid. Last month, I moved and somehow misplaced my accurate thermometer. I question the accuracy of my backup after I've seen some of the recent results. These are both digital, but not fancy at all (they are just rectal thermometers... which should be a more accurate method, so question…
  • J&J is the only single-dose, and I am hearing from a lot of people that won't do 2, but will take 1. Or they are ok with J&J because it works differently supposedly. In addition, a single-dose works best for transient populations (such as prisons). Finally, there is that question of how many vaccine doses are available…
  • Of course - he was looking at statistics in the U.S. Basically, 6 cases and 1 death with 7 million vaccines vs. a conservative estimate that 1 in 100 of those vaccinated will get infected with Covid if not vaccinated and 1 in 150 of those infected will die. Statistically, we are talking about a whole lot more dead when we…
  • Nate Silver has a valid point if you follow him on Twitter. Basically pointing out that the number of deaths prevented by going forward with the vaccine far outweighs the number of deaths from this blood clot issue. He is right.
  • Average onset of symptoms is 5.1 days, so I would expect if you have no symptoms at 12 days and test negative twice anyway, you are more certain you don't have it than most everyone else.
  • I get my 2nd Moderna dose next week (4/7). Then, 2 weeks later, I will be able to breathe a big sigh of relief. Obviously still wearing mask and taking precautions because I know a lot of people have not had an opportunity to get vaccinated yet.
  • Me too. Even though I'll be 94.1% protected (Moderna) once the final dose takes effect, that 5.9% risk is still going to keep me being careful until the virus is less prevalent in society. I'm still going to keep doing what I've been doing with precautions - wearing a mask at stores and work, washing hands, and I'll be…
  • My first vaccine dose in Dyer County, TN was Moderna as well. They were trying to schedule 2nd doses for us and I assumed they had Moderna doses in the pipeline for that. But, I've moved to TX now and have a 2nd Moderna vaccine scheduled in April at a CVS here.
  • I currently live in TN, but am moving to TX starting tomorrow (start new job there on 3/22). A week ago, I became eligible for the vaccine in TN (because of type 1 diabetes) and decided to go ahead and get the first shot (no J&J available here yet). I was a bit worried about figuring out the 2nd dose in TX, but they are…
  • We are getting answers now on the question of whether the Pfizer vaccines prevent transmission (as opposed to just protecting the vaccinated person). This is early data, but looks good.…
  • I am just now eligible to get the vaccine in TN. I move to TX in a week and won't be eligible there for a few months, it appears. So I am getting the first dose tomorrow here. The second dose, I'll have to figure out later and may be more delayed than most. But from what I can tell, the first vaccine still offers a lot of…
  • I flew into Austin airport last week and drove to a community between Austin and San Antonio. Mask usage there is much better than here in west TN based on my observations. But I acknowledge that I was only in the airport and at a gas station in Austin. The rest of my trip was about 1 hr. drive away and included hotel,…
  • New website to help people find vaccines. Currently in a pilot program with 4 states - Alaska, Indiana, Iowa, and Tennessee. Http://www.vaccinefinder.org
  • From what I heard in Iowa, if you are willing to drive and are at least 65 years old, you can get one through Hy-Vee. Just have to find a store with vaccines available, so might take a lot of calling. Edit: He says go to the Hy-Vee Pharmacy website to find a location. ETA again: Website says do not call, but use site…
  • Agreed. I'm in TN, but have a lot of friends in IA and other states. Here, almost nobody is getting vaccinated. From what I hear from friends in IA, all but a few there have had the chance already.
  • I would suggest that states should deploy their national guards to help administrator vaccines. However, this is not the problem here. Each day, counties in my state report their status. My county goes from "limited vaccine available" to "no vaccine available" fairly quickly... then stays that way until the next shipment.…
  • I have to say that I am very frustrated at the lack of availability of vaccines. It seems like some states have plenty of doses available while others have scarce supply. Dr. Fauci had said everyone could be able to get it by sping, but some areas are still in phase 1 and I don't see how spring could even be possible.…
