Both Freshco and Safeway were like 20/80 where I am.  Virtually no masks.  I would say maybe 50% of employees were wearing masks in those stores.

dr. Bonnie says once vaccinated wearing a mask is optional.  Hopefully those who figure they don’t need this vaccine will not get Covid and end up on a ventilator in hospital.

where they will just use up critical resources, further delay other peoples surgeries, cost us needless millions in care costs. But hey, #freedums.

… like this woman from Missouri.

 

A Missouri woman who refused to get a COVID-19 vaccine because she was afraid of its side effects died in hospital last month after contracting the Delta variant, her mother told local news outlets.

Tricia Jones, a 45-year-old mother of two from Kansas City, died on June 9 after a month in hospital on a ventilator.

Her mother, Deborah Carmichael, told local media that Jones was concerned about the vaccine after hearing "a lot of horror stories."

With out a decent health plan her financial future was toast.

Here is a link to some of the costs

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15942342/

"Mean intensive care unit cost and length of stay were 31,574 +/- 42,570 dollars and 14.4 days +/- 15.8 for patients requiring mechanical ventilation"

Got my 2nd dose on Saturday.  Had my appointment for 845pm and was sitting around the house relaxing at 830 and had a "oh @#$&!, my appointment! " moment before bolting out of the house.  Seems they had a couple of the brands of vaccine on hand as they asked me what I had first and when I responded with Pfizer, they said that's what I'd be getting today.

 

No side-effects to report save for a very mildly sore and fatigued right arm.

Not sure if the point has been made on here or not, but the stress last weeks heat wave put on the health care system sure cemented the importance of the measures we took to ease the burden on health care system during the pandemic.

Looking at that shot of the Rt.Hon. and his cloth mask, aside from the fact that it appears he's cleaned up all that facial hair, it reminded me of a more important question:

 

With the new public health orders making masks optional in indoor settings, does that mean that we may be dealing with people going for vaccinations here in BC with their faces unmasked?  Seems a bit premature to have lifted that part, and I hope that the vaccination centres make masking mandatory still.

I'm going for my second shot in about an hour here in Surrey. The instructions provided in the text I got were to wear a short sleeve shirt and a mask. My issue is that I just moved the other day, my condo is an absolute disaster scene and I seem to have misplaced the last mask I had left.

Don't they just provide you a new mask to put on anyways? I remember coming in with a mask and they told me to put on the new one they gave me.

If it's anything like Richmond (Kwantlen) during first shots, they'll probably have a stockpile of them available for you to use, and will insist you swap into theirs.

 

I had a higher filtration-efficiency mask on than the one they were providing, and was told I had to toss mine for theirs - I just wore it on top of mine, since theirs couldn't filter any better than mine anyways.  :P

(My wife does a good job sourcing highly effective masks from overseas ;))

I don't think that was the case for my first shot back on May 12. I'm pretty sure I just wore my own mask the whole time I was there, but that may have been because it was a drive-thru site.

Ah yes, I can see how that could affect things.

 

I suppose as a last resort, you could always appear with a "face covering" (repurposed t-shirt or something), or if you're near a pharmacy, you could try your luck there for a package of disposables (or maybe even a re-usable cloth one).

I would be very surprised if they didn't have masks available.

 

In fact, my wife and I showed up for our first shots with masks and they had us swap them for ones they had there.

I figure they'll probably be able to provide one for me on site. I think this location I'm going to (near the Surrey Works Yard, different than the first one) gives you the option between drive-thru and walk-in.

 

Just to be safe I'm gonna leave a few minutes early (as in right after I post this) to stop at the Shoppers near me and look for a mask. I haven't bought a new one in quite a while but they seem to be available everywhere you look.

I was given a new one as well. Just wear a cloth or shirt over your mouth to get in and I'm sure they will give you one. Or go to a store that gives them out like my local liquor store. They are more than happy to provide one!

Good luck, and lucky bastard (for getting your 2nd one before me :P:lol:

Haha well I guess that’s the perks of living in areas where the virus spread. Did my part to keep myself and the people around me safe, now I get the vaccine a little early. I take it you’re not in a hot spot?

No. It was pre-booked.

 

However, we used the same site for our second shot and although I booked mine, the wife just did the walk-in and they had masks available both times.

I meant walk-in as in a site you had to actually walk into rather than a drive-thru site. The site I’m going to offers both.

I thought this Delta variant was supposedly bad? Or is it just fearmongering by governments now?

 

Why I say this, because while going grocery shopping on the weekend it was a little shocking imo, seeing people walking around with no masks on since now it's not recommended, but I thought they were worried about this Delta variant... Or is it just not that bad....

Who knows, Chuck. I was in a grocery store and a few restaurants this weekend, and enjoyed not wearing a mask. It was a return to some sense of normalcy.
