COVID UPDATES. TIME TO DECIDE ABOUT SPREADING COVID
In my state you can get vaccinated if you're over 65 (depending on the county however).

The vaccination is available to people 75 or older here and my state has already filled the list for vaccinations.

Some people missed the deadline and were just out of luck.

Please pray for more vaccines.

Deal, Willie. The UK version is confirmed in 18 people as of last nite. in NY. Original Epicenter.We cannot get the vaccine in NY. Supply is gone. Or they would expect a disabled elder drive to up up state NY or way down to a very crowded part of Westchester to get a vaccine. They may have more appts available in april.

It "now appears there is some evidence that the new variant... may be associated with a higher degree of mortality," UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

If you want to know, check a news page. I don't wanna put you all in panic modes. We also have a south african version here. And a brazillian or spanish strain. I am not a scientist.

Stay vigillant. So many families on the covid forum have lost large numbers from some getting together at holiday. The numbers are as high as in march and february. And, people just want to rest till the next day. But they don't make it. So this variant takes hold quickly. Please. Be careful.

We really should be wearing face coverings in our homes, if one goes out (work /errands) while the others stay home. Gotta get these transmissions down before vaccinations ramp up to full speed.

What was it like exactly a year ago, how different from now.  Will we ever truly be back to normal?
I want to see a concert,  a baseball game, go to a mall and stroll around, I am so hoping that in less
than a year we will see something like normal.
Good health and happiness to all !!
Being kind to others costs nothing and enriches your life, 
never forget how you felt when someone was once cruel to you,
we all have felt unloved at one time or another we should never want another to feel that way. Smile

Yes I  hope people on here are able to stay safe, I have friends in the UK and they tell me that it is out of control, we can only pray that things will return to normal some day, well close as possible, and that people in the mean time use common scene and keep themself  and families safe, and help others that are worse off than them.

COVID-19: Wearing Two Masks Better Than One, Creates Obstacle Course For Virus, CDC Says

I have the science on it. It is the CDC. My friend in Paris lost her MOM and almost her brother. She wears 3 masks cuz she is terrified. Won't fly. Now the healthcare people agree that wearing more than one mask is useful.

I will get more N95 masks. And put a three ply fitted face mask over that. Or the damn shield.

These new variants of covid are very contagious. Protect your eyes. And of course NY keeps screwing up the vaccine or leaving it out. Oops. EEjits.

As the first COVID-19 vaccines were administered in England, some people were reported to have experienced severe allergic reactions.
In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it also learned of reports in the U.S. after people got the shot. In Alaska, two health care workers at the same hospital developed concerning reactions just minutes after receiving Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine.
As an example, an allergic reaction is considered severe when a person needs to be treated with epinephrine or EpiPen, or if they must go to the hospital.
Below is what you need to know about COVID-19 vaccines and severe allergic reactions:
1. If you get a COVID-19 vaccine and you think you might be having a severe allergic reaction after leaving the vaccination site, seek immediate medical care by calling 911.
2. If you have ever had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient in a COVID-19 vaccine, the CDC recommends that you should not get that specific vaccine. If you have had a severe allergic reaction to other vaccines or injectable therapies, you should ask your doctor if you should get a COVID-19 vaccine. Your doctor will help you decide if it is safe for you to get vaccinated.
3. The CDC recommends that people with a history of severe allergic reactions not related to vaccines or injectable medications, such as allergies to food, pet, venom, environmental, or latex, may still get vaccinated. People with a history of allergies to oral medications or a family history of severe allergic reactions, or who might have an milder allergy to vaccines may also still get vaccinated.
When can I get the COVID-19 vaccine? Here are three things to know about the shot availability.
4. If you have a severe allergic reaction after getting the first shot, you should not get the second shot. Your doctor may refer you to a specialist in allergies and immunology to provide more care or advice.
5. All people who get a COVID-19 vaccine should be monitored on-site. People with a history of severe allergic reactions should be monitored for 30 minutes after getting the vaccine. All other people should be monitored for 15 minutes after getting the vaccine.
6. Vaccination providers should have appropriate medications and equipment, such as epinephrine, antihistamines, stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, and timing devices to check your pulse, at all COVID-19 vaccination sites.
7. If you experience a severe allergic reaction after getting a COVID-19 vaccine, vaccination providers should provide rapid care and call for emergency medical services. You should continue to be monitored in a medical facility for at least several hours.

Dr. Fauci says authorities should assume the worst about a new strain of coronavirus from the U.K. because it has a 30% higher mortality rate for older people.

Between all these mutations and slow roll out of the vaccine we are in for a long winter. The only good news is that so far the vaccine has been effective vs these new strains. I hear the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is on the horizon too.
