Breakthough Infections Are Less Likely to Lead to Long COVID, a Study Suggests
People who experience breakthrough infections of the coronavirus after being fully vaccinated are about 50% less likely to experience long COVID-19 than are unvaccinated people who catch the virus, researchers said in a large new report on British adults.
Geez, that’s a heck of a way to get news of Covid classroom contacts out to parents.
I hope he feels better soon, that cough sounds scary. Can’t remember if they are wearing masks in your schools?
AND I am trying to go to Canada.... might be able to next month--but still think entry may be denied again....
I agree with all of this... And I don't think anyone can argue about the stellar research done in Isreal. We are all fortunate to be getting their fact based results.
There are so many issues going on in Florida right now--hard to even keep up. Covering up Data, School closures-->back to remote, Governor fining schools for masks, governor fining businesses for "asking if vaccinated".... No end to controversy.
but just showing you how vaccinations are going in Florida... ONLY 50% for the whole state...but look at these statistics!!
Lowest rates in these five counties
Holmes County (23%)
Washington County (25%)
Calhoun County (26%)
Union County (26%)
Dixie County (26%)
COVID-19 vaccinations in Florida rising amid outbreak, delta variant
Israel is now the world's Covid hotspot with almost 0.2% of population catching it yesterday | Daily Mail Online
Israel is also testing a lot.
Our covid rates in US are clearly under estimated (likely by a lot) since we are not testing that much. We mostly testing people symptomatic enough to want to get tested.
We plan to over the weekend. This is not the first time he's been tested. He was tested before summer camp in June. He was a camp with 1000 other kids from around the US and internationaly, NOT one kid got sick. My older grandson was a same camp for a MONTH, again NOT one kid sick with Covid.He washes his hands frequently, wears a mask with no problem. Its got to be school related, no one in the family or extended family is sick.
He seems better today, I am baby sitting, wearing a mask and spending time outside while he sleeps.
The will be 7 in Jan, this is the second time in his life he's been sick.
Governor of Virginia finally mandated mask in school but many have exemptions. School Superintendent refuses to give a count or percentage of vaccinated staff. It's just a big mess in Virginia many schools have shut down for a week or more,due to outbreaks. Add in the lack of bus drivers for the entire state, schools are struggling to even get the kids to school. One system is offering a weekly per diem if you drop off and pick up. Thank goodness we don't have that nightmare. We drive ours to and from.
No kidding. My anti-vax sister and her entire family were sick, but only one got tested, so five positives weren't counted. And I'm embarrassed to tell you all this, but I will . . .
My niece had a babysitting job the day before she had symptoms. She told the family that everybody in her family had symptoms, and they told her to wear a mask and come anyway. I literally yelled at my sister for not making her stay home. The entire family she babysat - two kids and both adults got sick. My sister says it was their choice and not her or her daughter's fault.
So 2nd shot. Nope they do not notify the Doctor. You tell your Doctor yourself and my Doctor didn't even ask.
Got both shots without:
1.) ID identification
2.) Insurance information
3.) Doctor information
Basically I was Jane Doe just me myself and I
Anyone in this Country can find a place to get a vaccine without these things. Illegal aliens could get vaccinated here with zero papers.
Well, they wanted the white vaccination card they gave me the 1st time I was there for my 1st shot, that is a must.
Experts Explain Why You Shouldn’t Laminate Your COVID-19 Vaccine Card
Reason is because you may need to add booster information to it later on.
I just had my first ever covid test
No symptoms but since I’m seeing my gbaby this weekend and the testing site was open and a block away from work I figured Why not
Missed the crowd so it took about 15 minutes total - halfway up the nostril swab only - easy peasy
Theres vaxing at the same site and ratio of testing to vax looked at least 20 to 1. Hoping to get the results back by Saturday.
Not sure if this was posted about yet

ETA- I haven’t had a chance to read this yet. Let’s hope so. On the bus home 45 minutes AFTER BEING COVID TESTED (see previous post) I had a close encounter with a coughing public transport passenger. Fak.
I posted about this article earlier this week and included this cartoon from the article:
This fake ‘Maderna’ vaccine card sees woman facing a year in prison and $5,000 fine in Hawaii
Chloe Mrozak, 24, was arrested at Oahu’s Daniel K. Inouy International Airport on Sunday, and is being held on $2,000 bail.
State investigators were tipped off that she may have uploaded false documents under the state’s Safe Travels Program in order to skip traveler quarantine rules, which require unvaccinated visitors to self-quarantine for 10 days upon arrival.
Mrozak arrived in Oahu a week ago Monday on a Southwest flight, according to court documents, and left the airport before screeners could confirm her hotel reservations. She listed a Waikiki Holiday Inn Express as her local accommodations, but when investigators checked with the hotel, they found no reservations under her name.
What’s more, her handwritten COVID vaccine card also claimed she was vaccinated in Delaware by members of the National Guard, but when the authorities checked with the state, there was no record of her vaccination.
The state investigators found Mrozak at the airport as she was preparing to leave Hawaii at the end of her trip. She told the arresting officer that she got her vaccination from her doctor at her doctor’s office, documents say, and that she paid for the shot. (In fact, vaccines are being distributed for free).
Mrozak is being held at the Oahu Community Correctional Center, accused of falsifying vaccination documents, which is a misdemeanor. If convicted, she faces up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
A Florida couple was also arrested early last month on suspicion that they used fake vaccine cards to travel to Hawaii with their two children.
And two more travelers were arrested at Daniel K. Inouye Airport last month for allegedly using fake vaccination cards to come to the Hawaiian islands.
betcha she thought she was sooooo smort
This is what we’re dealing with. Heaven help us.
Whether or not she ends up with a criminal record, her name and face are now all over the internet for forging an official document, I'd say her future job prospects just got a whole lot dimmer.
On the other hand, she'll probably get lots of romantic interest from ex-cons, so that might cheer her up.
Secret vaxxers: These Americans are getting COVID vaccinations but not telling anyone
They're getting COVID-19 vaccinations but not telling their anti-vaxxer friends, family or colleagues, fearing alienation from the people around them.
About 1 in 6 vaccinated Americans say they're keeping it a secret from at least some people, while more than 1 in 17 aren't telling anyone, according to a Harris Poll survey conducted exclusively for USA TODAY.
In many cases, vaccinated people hide it because they know people in their life wouldn't approve.
Such is the case for William, a manufacturing employee in Maine who got vaccinated but isn't revealing it at work. His boss has argued, falsely, that the COVID vaccines were "experimental," claimed incorrectly that they were "rushed" and mentioned bogus conspiracy theories that the shots were being used to install tracking chips in people.
William scheduled his shots during off-hours to avoid suspicion from his boss. He requested that this last name not be used in this story out of fear of losing his job if his supervisor reads it. His boss, he said, has ranted about COVID-related restrictions and intimidated workers who expressed opposing views.
“I was very uncomfortable with the idea of letting the supervisor know that I was going out to get a COVID shot,” William said. “It does feel quite hostile.”
While people who don’t want to tell others about their vaccination status are naturally reticent to be interviewed for a story like this, the evidence suggests that William is not alone in hiding his inoculation for fear of social consequences.
