    Still wondering when/if the US will bridge results and allow children to be vaccinated. One vaccine the US purchased was tested on children IIRC is in the queue.. guess we have to wait for that one to be allowed under EUA unless FDA allows bridging?

    Does anyone know?

    I cannot fathom if it's projected 30 million in one month to vaccinate.

    Does anyone have a site that is doing daily tracking of how many have been vaccinated in the last week? This is the only one I have found, but would rather have a bookmark for something like Johns Hopkins etc vs. MSM updates/non updates. TIA.

    MAP: per-state vaccination numbers across the country


    OK, I found this CDC site updated 12/21, two days ago. COVID-19 Cases, Deaths, and Trends in the US | CDC COVID Data Tracker It appears that 13% of those delivered have been administered since rollout.
    1. 614,000 were administered so far in over a week,
    2. 4,624,325 distributed.

    Would love to see a Johns Hopkins type of day to day tracker iykwim.


    • Total doses distributed are cumulative counts of COVID-19 vaccine doses recorded as shipped in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Vaccine Tracking System (VTrckS) since December 13, 2020. Cumulative totals reflect data available as of 9:00am ET on the day of reporting.
    • Total doses administered are cumulative counts of individual COVID-19 vaccine doses as reported to the CDC by state, territorial, and local public health agencies and five federal entities (Bureau of Prisons, Veterans Administration, Department of Defense, Department of State, and Indian Health Services) since December 14, 2020. Cumulative doses administered reflect current data available as of 9:00am ET on the day of reporting.

    BioNTech CEO confident vaccine will work on UK variant

    BERLIN (AP) — German pharmaceutical company BioNTech is confident that its coronavirus vaccine works against the new UK variant, but further studies are needed to be completely sure, its chief executive said Tuesday.

    Sahin said that the proteins on the UK variant are 99% the same as on the prevailing strains, and therefore BioNTech has “scientific confidence” that its vaccine will be effective.

    “But we will know it only if the experiment is done and we will need about two weeks from now to get the data,” he said. “The likelihood that our vaccine works ... is relatively high.”

    Should the vaccine need to be adjusted for the new variant the company could do so in about 6 weeks, Sahin said, though regulators might have to approve the changes before the shots can be used.

    Having to adjust the vaccine would be a blow for the rollout of immunization campaigns and the effort to rein in the pandemic that has so far killed more than 1.7 million people worldwide.

    Ok. Now I am worried about Trevor Lawrence!
    ("Sunshine") from Cartersville GA.
    He had Covid a few months ago. Something like what happened to Keyontae Johnson would almost certainly be a career ender for him.
    He just graduated from Clemson last weekend!

    I think this is good news and that it also shows Dr. Birx's good character. She knows her behavior damaged her credibility and thus her ability to do a vital important job.

    Though she is under no pressure to leave, she takes corrective action herself. My guess is that she is going to withdraw herself from public appearances and slip out as soon as Biden has a good replacement.

    Restaurateur who survived COVID-19, feeds his community gets surprise from TODAY

    [​IMG]
    Green opened his restaurant just months before the coronavirus pandemic.

    He opened the restaurant in Newark, New Jersey just months before the pandemic hit. Aimed at providing a feeling of "something nostalgic," the small business had to close for a month when Green was diagnosed with coronavirus and spent three weeks in the hospital.

    "We weren't able to generate any revenue," Green explained. "It made me feel like my dream was over. But I was also afraid for my life. … I (was) reaching out to various family members via FaceTime and I kind of said my goodbyes."

    [​IMG]
    Green provides up to a thousand meals a week with his partnership.

    In the end, Green pulled through, and made himself a promise to help his community during the pandemic. He launched "Willie's Day," a gigantic neighborhood barbecue that would serve as a farewell to his restaurant.

    "I cleaned out my savings to do all of that," Green explained. "I knew that possibly this (was) going to be my last hurrah for my restaurant. So if I'm going to go out, I'm definitely going to go out with a bang."

    [​IMG]
    Green was overcome with emotion after being gifted a van by Ford Motor Company.

    Instead of being an ending, "Willie's Day" was a beginning: Green was able to connect with Newark Working Kitchens, an organization that works with World Central Kitchen to pay restaurants to serve meals to people in need.

    "It was like everything aligned," Green said. "The skies parted, the light came down, and my restaurant was saved."

    This made me tear up. I’m on day 15 of being sick and the mental toll has been the hardest. Every day I have to hide any fears I have and deal with the fears of my 4 kids who think they are going to die. On top of that, I’m doing my absolute best to keep the Christmas magic alive, which includes wrapping presents with the last bit of energy I hadve and buying a ridiculously priced ham through Instacart so we can have some semblance of a Christmas dinner. Needless to say, I’m very excited to share this article with the kiddos to hopefully put their little minds at ease, if only for a short time.

    Most of the studies have been on IgG, then IgM. Breast milk is IgA which is the last immunoglobulin MOO to be produced by the body.

    Interesting work. For decades now, it has been shown that breast milk is good for babies as it transmits for prevention of some things through IgA antibodies.

    Although as a treatment.. hmmmm.

    So much to learn from this virus!

    So sorry that you have fallen ill over the holidays. Da*& it.

    Does your family follow NORAD site live tracking Christmas? If you have never done before, HIGHLY recommend. Santa visits so many countries through 24 hours, and when he lands in a country it give background and highlights of such. It is extremely cool, and it has a fabulous background as NORAD took it over due to a misplaced call long ago if you want to google, This is the tracker which starts in the US the day before, yet can be followed by anyone all over the world. Official NORAD Santa Tracker

    Background on it at North American Aerospace Defense Command > About NORAD > NORAD Tracks Santa

    Since it is government site, no issue to post due to government issue doesn't fall under copy rite... here it is...

    "24 hours a day, 365 days a year, NORAD tracks everything that flies in and around North America in defense of our homelands. On Dec. 24, we have the very special mission of also tracking Santa.

    NORAD has been tracking Santa since 1955 when a young child accidently dialed the unlisted phone number of the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) Operations Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, believing she was calling Santa Claus after seeing a promotion in a local newspaper.

    Air Force Colonel Harry Shoup, the commander on duty that night, was quick to realize a mistake had been made, and assured the youngster that CONAD would guarantee Santa a safe journey from the North Pole.

    Thus a tradition was born that rolled over to NORAD when it was formed in 1958. Each year since, NORAD has dutifully reported Santa's location on Dec. 24 to millions across the globe.

    Thanks to the services and resources generously provided by numerous corporate contributors and volunteers, NORAD Tracks Santa has persevered for more than 60 years.

    Though the program began due to a misdialed number, NORAD Tracks Santa has flourished and is recognized as one of the Department of Defense's largest community outreach programs.

    Each year, the NORAD Tracks Santa Web Site receives nearly fifteen million unique visitors from more than 200 countries and territories around the world. Volunteers receive more than 130,000 calls to the NORAD Tracks Santa hotline from children around the globe.

    This year, children and the young-at-heart are able to track Santa through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
