Wow - I didn't hear about that.   He must be so disappointed, let alone worried.  Hope he's O.K. that's the most important thing.  He can always play another game later on.

UK questioning whether to reopen because of variants and everyone here is expecting things to be "normal" in a couple months.

I don't think anyone is expecting normal.  I think most are expecting an easing into a re-opening with sporadic steps back when cases flare up.

I am totally expecting things to go back to normal. It went normal very fast after spanish flu pandemic -without any vaccines and with much higher mortality rate.. Why we can go back to normal now having many vaccines available?

I guess it depends on what we see as normal, right?  Yes, we will (over time) see full rinks, bars, and such.  But we will also see some people choosing to wear N95 masks when out in public.

Well for one, I'm sure workplaces will have a lot more stringent "stay at home if you feel sick" policies. 

 

Behaviours will change. For example, I plan on wearing a mask at all times when on public transit from now on.

Like me, as well as my family. I intend on wearing a mask in a public place for a long time. The fact that I haven't had a cold or flu in a year and a half is two of the reasons.

 This is the first winter in my 15 year career that I did not get the flu.  That's unheard of for a teacher.

 

We'll definitely go back to "normal" in some ways, but I think this pandemic has changed things permanently as well.

 

Personally, this has drawn a line in the sand for me with people who put "me" before "we".  I have patience for them anymore

For those wondering about this.  It is looking like Pfizer won't have their results until the fall.  Then they will be asking for authorization then.  Just as was posted earlier in this thread.  Good news.  Especially for nations that have few vaccines thus far.  Vaccinating large groups of children (many go to school) can be speedy and be very helpful in achieving herd immunity.

Pfizer to test COVID-19 vaccine in larger group of children below 12

Pfizer Inc (PFE.N) said on Tuesday it will begin testing its COVID-19 vaccine in a larger group of children under age 12 after selecting a lower dose of the shot in an earlier stage of the trial.

The study will enroll up to 4,500 children at more than 90 clinical sites in the United States, Finland, Poland and Spain, the company said.

Based on safety, tolerability and the immune response generated by 144 children in a phase I study of the two-dose shot, Pfizer said it will test a dose of 10 micrograms in children between 5 and 11 years of age, and 3 micrograms for the age group of 6 months to 5.

A Pfizer spokesperson said the company expects data from 5- to 11-year-olds in September and would likely ask regulators for emergency use authorization later that month. Data for children 2 to 5 years old could arrive soon after that, he said.

Pfizer expects to have data from the 6-month to 2-year-old age group sometime in October or November.

The vaccine - made by Pfizer and German partner BioNTech SA - has been authorized for use in children as young as 12 in Europe, the United States and Canada. They receive the same dose as adults: 30 micrograms.

Nearly 7 million teens have received at least one dose of the vaccine in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Inoculating children and young people is considered a critical step toward reaching "herd immunity" and taming the COVID-19 pandemic.

Report ad

Still, scientists in the United States and elsewhere are studying the possibility of a link between heart inflammation and mRNA vaccines, particularly in young men. Both Pfizer and Moderna Inc's (MRNA.O) vaccines are mRNA shots.

Israel's Health Ministry said last week it had found the small number of myocarditis cases observed mainly in young men who received the Pfizer vaccine there were probably linked to their vaccination. The cases were generally mild and did not last long.

Pfizer has said it is aware of the Israeli observations of myocarditis and that no causal link to its vaccine has been established.

The story is that he had every opportunity to get a vaccination, but chose not to. Arizona has many clinics etc., for folks to be vaccinated, but....

I'm glad he got it and blew the tourney in that case.

Unless my work implaments a sick day program thats not gonna fly at my work very well.  Lots of times where guys are just worn out and their bodies just feel beat up and sick with winter weather and you can see people feel sick but no ones willing to take unpaid time off.

Fully vax'd as of today!  Woo!

Yay!! Congrats Deb...been a long haul for everyone and it ain't over yet, but we are getting there day by day. Just need to get the people who are skeptical of the vaccine to take it, have a couple close people I know who "aren't in a rush" to get the vaccine...Sadly 1 of them is my best friend and the other is my cousin who has been applying to get a full time firefighting job, told him hey man...that is an essential worker type of job can almost guarantee any interview you get they are going to ask you if you have been vaccinated yet or are awaiting your 2nd jab. Don't think they would hire someone who is Unwilling to get the vaccine, but he is 21 so millenials know best right!?!?

Most jobs aren't going to give paid sick days as they know it will get abused even if it is legit. I know my boss won't do it, they are a small company who make good money but they don't give a crap about me as an employee and if i am not at work they consider that as negative value for them. It is sad and I never thought that is how they would be when I took this job earlier in the year, but i have to stick it out as I am not a post secondary educated person and I can't survive off a minimum wage job with a child arriving within the next month
