Good thing the Lifelabs in Kerrisdale is just down the road from London Drugs. There's lots of choices there. 

How do they get into London drugs with no mask though???? Oh crap off to Amazon! (where I got mine because they were on sale  and I hate them)

I would tweet back that God wanted you to get Covid-19.   And if you belief was strong enough, then you will survive.  If not, then you will die.  But for the low price of $1000, I will pray for you and you will be guaranteed to recover. 

 

:P

Looks like the UK is getting some much needed help. Hope it all goes well.

U.K. approves Pfizer coronavirus vaccine for emergency use

British officials authorized a COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use on Wednesday, green-lighting the world's first shot against the virus that's backed by rigorous science and taking a major step toward eventually ending the pandemic.

 

The go-ahead for the vaccine developed by American drugmaker Pfizer and Germany's BioNTech comes as the virus surges again in the United States and Europe, putting pressure on hospitals and morgues in some places and forcing new rounds of restrictions that have devastated economies.

 

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, which licenses drugs in the U.K., recommended the vaccine could be used after it reviewed the results of clinical trials that showed the vaccine was 95 per cent effective overall — and that it also offered significant protection for older people, among those most at risk of dying from the disease. But the vaccine remains experimental while final testing is done.

 

"It's fantastic," British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said. "The vaccine will begin to be made available across the U.K. from next week. It's the protection of vaccines that will ultimately allow us to reclaim our lives and get the economy moving again."

It's so nice to finally see some glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.  2020 has been a year to forget.  One month to go and we can flip the page and start fresh for hopefully a much better 2021.

except we're not likely to see much actual relief until after next summer.  We've still got a long way to go and a lot of pain and suffering to endure before that

As a whole country? No.  But if vaccines are issued to the elderly and those that need it most first, 2021 will look a lot brighter than 2020.

maybe a few professions do, but not most of us. Most of us simply need to keep sitting on the couch and watching Netflix.
