Gettiní the info out to the anti-vaxxers ASAP.

Trying to go on vacation within the next year... or two... or three.

Traveling is great. Being stuck in one place is not.

Miss a vacation for one week, or live the for my entire life with chimpanzee DNA permanently bonded to my cellular strucutre?

Hmm. Hard decision, I DON"T think. Thailand can wait.

We also have the DNA of thousands of various prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and fungi in and all over us. These are essential for our survival as we would not be able to digest food without them. They are permanently bonded to us. You haven't turned into a bacteria or a fungus. Cowpox would jump from cow to human and would confer immunity to smallpox. Aspirin is derived from chemicals in willow bark, you aren't turning into a plant. The DNA in cow, pig, and fowl meat you consume is processed by your body and converted into new cells.

The "YOU MUST VAX. NOW!!!!!" cult is a bit absurd. People have a right to be cautious about a vaccine that was rushed into production that bypassed regular testing procedures. At the same time, anti-vaxx nonsense is just as bad. Like, at least have some basic knowledge of science, biology, and the history of medicine before freaking out.

1.17 billion shots have been given.

In the US, 247 million.

It's safe.

No need to "wait and see".

Delay increases danger for all.

Yes, because complications in drugs show up instantly and never after a period of time. Which is why Vioxx and Zantac are still on the shelves. Oh wait.

If you are pro-science, and presumably pro-medicine and pro-vaccination, then you have to acknowledge the elevated level of risk. There's a reason that we typically employ much more stringent requirements for prescription drugs. You cannot say "It's safe" when the usual safeguards and testing procedures have been waved. Now, that's not to say that they aren't safe, just that when you say "It's safe" you are much closer to a likelihood than stating a fact.

That's not to say that these are beyond the accepted level of danger. You have to do risk trade-offs. There's an increased probability that you might develop complications from the vaccine, something that might not have happened if the regular testing measures had been in place. However that is counterbalanced by the risk of becoming infected by COVID and developing long-term damage or death. This would probably come down to one's age, co-morbidities, living situation, etc.

Anyways, this is the Raving/Happy thread. I'm happy that there are a bunch of different vaccines out there and the U.S. is doing well. I'm also happy that the "Of course we're smarter because we're European" crowd is looking at us and the UK with envy.

Since there is a lot of reluctance here to get the AZ shot government seems to be pushing who it can to get the shot.

In Korea:

"People will not be allowed a choice over which vaccine they get. Vaccines will be allotted based on supplies available at a given time, the ministry said, and those who refuse to get it at their turn will not be given a second chance until after November."

You're conveniently ignoring the fact that the "wait and see" here is based around the AZ shot, which you forgot to mention has not yet even been authorised in the U.S.  If they had the Pfizer or Moderna readily available you wouldn't see the same hesitation.

True. The US is exporting all the AZ vaccine made there. None is domestically consumed. But ďbeggars canít be choosersĒ. Koreans should be happy to get AZ. Itís better than nothing. The way to end the pandemic is to get people vaccinated ASAP.

Number of Covid-19 vaccinations given per 100 people is now 74.4 in the UK. Safety wise itís ok; people ainít dying. The problem is itís less effective than the American brands - Iím reading something like 85ish% compared to 95ish%. But 85% is a hell of a lot better than zero. But I guess a problem could be discrimination in travel opportunities. Those who got the best vaccinations will have more options itís looking like.

ďEffectiveĒ is measured against contracting the virus. They are all near 100% effective in preventing death or serious illness related to the virus.

The World Health Organization approved a COVID-19 vaccine from China's state-owned drugmaker Sinopharm for emergency use, a boost to Beijing's push for a big role in inoculating the world.

Would this be the same WHO who, in late 2019/early 2020, that said we had nothing to worry about? The same WHO who blocked Taiwan from a critical virus conference? The country that has suffered 12 deaths (one of the lowest mortality rates in the world) and was the first to respond to the pandemic because they KNEW not to trust China's word that everything was under control.

Again, I'd rather get the virus than be within 500m of any CCP vaccine. I'm confident in my badass immune system to wait for a European, American or Korean made vaccine.

Finally there's a Smoothie King in this town!

It is a small part of an Emart 24, but still, a quick tasty summer cool-down drink.

Sometimes the little things make one's day: am enjoying Strawberry Lemon Twist while out and about on this beautiful clear blue sky (no more haze) Sunday afternoon, getting some vitamin d and stretching the legs.

G'day. :)
