Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Michigan is opening up vaccines to every adult starting on April 5. Almost time to start dose-hunting.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

My mom is getting the J&J shot today. I had to make the appointment for her. She's in her mid-50s but has the soul of someone 30 years older when it comes to doing things on the Web.

Re: College Football 2021 Offseason

Says a lot about the culture of college football fans that the first two responses to a story about serial sexual harassment and violence at a top program are about the wins/losses and coaching options of one of the teams tangentially involved.

It's not the most important issue coming out of this, but Kansas football continues to be FUBAR. They're not getting a coach worth a damn in March.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

I'm actually good with the guidance. I was worried they wouldn't even go that far for vaccinated people. It should really come down to 'you can pretty much live life as normal but you should mask up in public and take all your cleanliness precautions you've been taking, because we don't know who's v...

Secondary market prices will probably be a bit higher, but I suspect the amount of people that don't want to/feel comfortable with going to a game before being vaccinated will keep things from being too out of control.

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Forgive my ignorance, but is the J&J vaccine worth getting or should I wait for Moderna/Pfizer who seem to have a much higher efficacy after the 2nd dose? If you get the J&J can you get a 2nd dose of the others later? I can get vaccinated Sunday, but I'd rather wait if it's significantly le...

So apparently MS has a surplus of vaccines. Anyone 18 and up can now get one. There’s plenty of rubes who aren’t getting it due to thinking it’s a microchip or whatever. Nevertheless, hospitalizations are down 48% over the last three weeks and we had less than 150 cases yesterday so hopefully our d...
