    Over 65 vaccination rates:

    I found this incredible so i went to the cdc website and looked up los angeles county , california.
    they report 30.2% of the total population and 38.1% of the above 18 year old population. you can plug in the county and state yourself. You do realize your graph says for people over 65 years old?

    Two students of my wife's, a sophomore and junior, are flying to the States from Spain to get vaccinated this weekend.

    Assuming the families don't work for an airline, that's hefty out of pocket with PCRs potentially on both ends plus airfare especially considering teens are low risk with a 0.02% mortality rate.

    Chalk a win for Fauci though if that's not all hands on deck I don't know what is

    What are PCR's?

    So these are Spanish citizens flying to the US for vaccines? Are they college students or high school students?

    I don't understand the Fauci reference.

    I"m officially two weeks from my 2nd on Sunday. A bit bummed that so many are opting not to get vaccinated. We'll be lucky if more than 50% of those over 18 get their 2nd dose. Wondering if full FDA approval will change this at all. Seems companies as well as the armed services are waiting for a full FDA approval before mandating. Everyone is congratulating themselves for lower covid numbers but seems to me the weather could be partially responsible and we just have further to go in terms of herd immunity numbers -Mike

    Correct, the numbers are for 65 and older as they were the first to become eligible. I'd estimate that we're approaching 50% for adults (teenagers not included).

    I think he means Fauci's complicated messaging has resulted in a distortion of risk for certain populations. Wealthy and young is probably down at the bottom of the list of vulnerable populations. If you're smart that is. But these girls may just be interested in going to raves or burning man type deals without any limitations.

    And PCRs refers to the inconvenience of abusing your nostrils with 2 Covid tests when you're likely to be negative.

    So you must know who he is talking about if you know they are girls, because he didnít identify them as more than students. He also lives in Spain and didnít say whether these students were US nationals or Spanish citizens. Do you know that information also? If they are Spanish citizens, I am surprised that Fauci has that sort of reach and influence.

    If this is just a pair of expat US kids coming back for vaccines, thatís one thing. But if these are Spanish citizens sending their kids to the US to be vaccinated, thatís interesting.

    He said teens so I assumed girls or boys. Since one is a sophomore and one is a junior they must be in high school as most college juniors are 20 or older. I'm not aware of their nationality but I'm sure they have passports.

    As for the Fauci critique, you know how some of us like to trumpet the survival rate for covid. I believe Hollis said it's 99.98% for teenagers; CFR that is.

    If they are Spanish high school students that makes them (possibly) foreign national minors traveling alone (are they?) and would also make this interesting.

    I know someone who has been researching vaccine travel to the US. It is a thing.

    Fauci. Whatever. 576,000 deaths. And thatís undercounting.

    I can think of at least 15 examples of people my wife or I have interacted with here who either had family visiting from abroad to get vaccinated or who were here themselves to do so. It's definitely a thing.

    Had my second on Sunday at 5. Was advised to stay well hydrated, which I have done. No substantial discomfort. Hungry, sore arm, and my face felt like I had a sunburn for a bit.

    Got off easy.

    I finally got my first shot (AZ) yesterday-such a relief to finally get it.

    I am a bit lethargic today, but nothing extreme.

    I had my second Pfizer on Sunday at 5. Was told to make a point of hydrating assiduously. Which I did: electrolyte fizzies included. This definitely helped and I had no really bad reaction other than tiredness, a strange buzz, and a sunburned feeling on my face.

    I took Doctor Trondís advice and washed down each of my pfizer vaccines with plenty of hoppy lager.
    3rd day out from my second shot and still smooth sailing.

    24hrs of the blahs and all is back to normal. Per her, "it's like yesterday didn't even happen".

    My second shot was 72 hours ago. I had more of a reaction from the first dose. My Whoop showed my respiratory rate to have increased for Tuesday and Wednesday nights sleep, and had me in the red for recovery yesterday. Last night things got closer to normal and I had a solid ride this morning. Food for thought.
