    Thank you! Science speaks louder than paranoia I hope
    Truly amazing that all of the millions of these effective and routine vaccines were never questioned or researched on cell lines prior to J&J’s COVID-19 one

    "There is so much that's critical riding on the next two months," CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky told the National League of Cities on Monday. "How quickly we will vaccinate versus whether we will have another surge really relies on what happens in March and April."

    Walensky said she hopes local leaders will do what they can to encourage people to wear masks and keep good physical distance from each other -- and advise people to get vaccinated.

    Walensky also said the US health system is "frail."

    I just hope enough people in the US get vaccinated - I know more people who are refusing to than those who are getting the jab.

    It's really odd how some groups are more leery of getting the virus than others. From what I've read, the most skeptical of all are blacks, but it's difficult to figure out why. Some say it's because there's a history of them not trusting American medicine, but that doesn't really seem so likely to me because--as far as I know--they seek medical treatment as often as any other group.

    On the plus side, Native Americans are getting vaccinated at healthy rates.

    #BREAKING: Japan to stage Tokyo Olympics without overseas spectators

    Japan to stage Tokyo Olympics without overseas spectators

    The Japanese government has decided to exclude overseas spectators from attending this summer's Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, as part of efforts to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, officials with knowledge of the matter said Tuesday.

    The government and the Japanese organizing committee of the Summer Games are expected to hold a remote meeting with the International Olympic Committee and two other bodies later this month to make a formal decision on the issue of overseas visitors.

    The government has concluded that welcoming fans from abroad is not possible given concerns among the Japanese public over the coronavirus and the fact that more contagious variants have been detected in many countries, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    This article was in the same Guardian issue..... bad Astra Zeneca batch???

    Batch of Oxford vaccine suspected of link to Austrian nurse's death went to 17 countries
    Seventeen European countries received doses from a batch of Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine that authorities in Austria have stopped using while investigating a death and an illness, a senior health official has told Reuters.

    The warning came after a 49-year-old nurse in Zwettl, a town north-west of Vienna, died as a result of severe coagulation disorders after receiving the vaccine. Another nurse from Zwettl who is 35 and received a dose from the same batch, ABV 5300, developed a pulmonary embolism and is recovering.

    Christa Wirthumer-Hoche, the head of Austrian public health agency AGES’ medicines market supervisory body, was quoted by Reuters as saying:

    We informed all European colleagues in the European network as this batch, which amounted to roughly a million doses in total, was sent to 17 European countries.

    The European Medicines Agency’s Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC), which monitors the safety of medicines, discussed the case on Monday, said Wirthumer-Hoche, who also heads EMA’s management board.

    LA teachers warned to not share vacation pics as union seeks safe return to classrooms: report

    The teachers were urged to keep spring break pictures off social media because it could hurt the union's argument that it's currently unsafe to return to the classroom, according to a screenshot that appeared to be from a roughly 5,700 member Facebook group titled, "UTLA FB GROUP- Members Only."

    "Friendly reminder: If you are planning any trips for Spring Break, please keep that off of Social Media. It is hard to argue that it is unsafe for in-person instruction, if parents and the public see vacation photos and international travel," a post from the group read, according to FOX 11 of Los Angeles reporter Bill Melugin.

    It's because Black people were experimented on in the past (see the Tuskegee Experiment).

    Wow! That's awful! And, incredibly sad.

    It sounds as though we need a strong and reassuring public service message that is inclusive of all citizens. No one should be afraid of an approved vaccine.

    'Human Error' Causes More Than 6,000 Californians to Receive Low COVID-19 Vaccine Dose Alert

    Errors in administering doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine caused the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to send alerts to more than 6,000 people who may have received lower dosage amounts than health officials intended.

    From the afternoon of February 28 through the afternoon of March 1, those who arrived at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, to get their first vaccine dose may have been administered 0.22 milliliters of the Pfizer vaccine instead of the 0.3 ml recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an official with the CDPH told Newsweek.

    My husband and I have worn masks properly and consistently and yet we both got Covid. Fortunately, we didn’t die. My respiratory therapist in the hospital told me that 95% of her patients have no idea how Covid found them. I don’t know if all of them wore masks properly and consistently as we did. It’s also possible that we (and the 95%) touched our faces without realizing it or didn’t wash our hands carefully enough. We will never know. But we will keep wearing masks and doing our very best with other mitigations.

    A 2% reduction in cases is considered statistically significant by the CDC for good reason. If 2% of a population of 100K did not get Covid because of a mask mandate, that’s 2000 fewer cases. In the small city of about 200K near me that’s 4000 fewer cases, not an insignificant amount.

    My concern is that misinterpreting the CDC report will reduce the number of masks worn by those who are anti-mask and cause even more states to abandon mask mandates at a time when more contagious variants are proliferating.
