Yes, I know, rules and laws are for suckers, and the medical-bureaucratic complex is going to farm out enforcement to private entities, but regarding vaccinations, the UN's "Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights" says:

Article 6 – Consent

1. Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice.

2. Scientific research should only be carried out with the prior, free, express and informed consent of the person concerned. The information should be adequate, provided in a comprehensible form and should include modalities for withdrawal of consent. Consent may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without any disadvantage or prejudice. Exceptions to this principle should be made only in accordance with ethical and legal standards adopted by States, consistent with the principles and provisions set out in this Declaration, in particular in Article 27, and international human rights law.

3. In appropriate cases of research carried out on a group of persons or a community, additional agreement of the legal representatives of the group or community concerned may be sought. In no case should a collective community agreement or the consent of a community leader or other authority substitute for an individual’s informed consent.

Yeah, yeah.  I once let a black deliveryman use my toilet.  We disinfected for days afterwards, but it's the thought that counts. 


Are you saying your opinion about teachers and schools, based on having a wife that's a teacher, is mostly irrelevant bullshit?

No, I think he's saying that just because you know people who used to teach, doesn't make the stupid shit you post true.

Biden has allowed Dr. Fauci back on TV Briefings after Trump banished him for months for telling the truth. He said it was awkward correcting Trump's BS because you knew you would pay for it in some way.

New mutant variant found in South Africa that appears to be resistant to anti-bodies. Video feels a bit like fear mongering until the very end when they say they can tweak the vaccine. Still worth the watch for ultra hot Debora Patta voiceover. Love the way she says "mutant" with her accent.

The logistics of the vaccine rollout sound like a nightmare. Hospitals are cancelling COVID vaccination appointments due to lack of vaccine. CDC claims that only about 1/2 of the vaccines that they have delivered have been administered.

In their rush to vaccinate as many people as possible, I suspect that many healthcare providers are using all of their available vaccine to administer first doses with the expectation that they will receive enough vaccine in the future to administer the second doses. What happens if the second dose of vaccine doesn't arrive in time and as a result, there are people who received the first dose but then have to wait longer than the advised 3 week period before getting their second dose?

Here in Maryland, the governor is pushing to re-open schools for in-person learning by March 1st. Given that the state's COVID positivity rate continues to rise and teachers have not been able to get vaccinated yet in most parts of the state, there has been a large amount of pushback to the governor's demands.


There is no way that teachers and other school staff can now get the 2 doses of COVID vaccine and achieve the complete immune response by March 1st so many teachers do not want to return to the classroom. Many parents are also concerned that their children could bring COVID into their homes and infect them and other members of the family since most of the general public are not able to get the COVID vaccine at this time either.


The governor seemed to threaten the teachers by citing actions that other states have taken such as firing teachers who refused to return to the classroom and revoking their teaching licenses/certifications. He claimed that he will pursue all legal avenues to return children to classrooms.


The governor cites that virtual learning has resulted in a huge learning deficit for many children - especially among poor and minority students. Getting students back into the classroom is supposed to improve this situation. Personally, I don't see how much good 3 months of "2 days per week in-school learning" will be. Seems to be a lot of work and risk for very little benefit to me.

Most important part of the article below: "Pfizer and BioNTech have warned they have no evidence their vaccine would continue to be protective if the second dose is given more than 21 days after the first."

We get a vaccine and now it may be rendered ineffective due to various health organizations not following the recommended vaccine timelines between doses. Can't these motherf%ckers just follow the directions? WTF?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/french-health-body-recommends-delaying-114847198.html

PARIS (Reuters) - France's top health advisory body on Saturday recommended doubling the time between people being given the first and second COVID-19 vaccinations to six weeks from three in order to increase the number getting inoculated.

The gap between the first and second injection in France is currently three weeks for people in retirement homes, who take priority, and four weeks for others such as health workers.

The Haute Autorite de Sante (HAS) said spacing out the two required vaccinations of the Pfizer/BioNtech and Moderna vaccines would allow the treatment of at least 700,000 more people in the first month.

"The growing number of infections and the worrying arrival of new variants call for an acceleration of the vaccination campaign in order to prevent the epidemic from spiking in coming weeks," the HAS said in a statement.

The HAS said that while there is no agreement between different countries about the optimal timelag between the two shots, it seemed reasonable to delay the second injection to six weeks as the first shot would already provide protection against the coronavirus from the 12th or 14th day after the injection.

It added it was essential for people to get a second injection.

The HAS is an independent advisory body whose recommendations can inspire government policy but don't automatically translate into action.

The World Health Organization said early this month that people should get two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine within 21 to 28 days.

Several countries are considering ways to stretch scarce supplies of COVID-19 vaccines, including by delaying dosing intervals or reducing dose sizes.

In Britain, regulators have ruled that shots can be administered up to 12 weeks apart, though a group of British doctors have written to England's chief medical officer to tell him to cut the gap between doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine to six weeks.


Pfizer and BioNTech have warned they have no evidence their vaccine would continue to be protective if the second dose is given more than 21 days after the first.

Merck gives up on COVID vaccine efforts

https://www.yahoo.com/news/merck-ends-covid-vaccine-program-115825711.html
(Reuters) - Drugmaker Merck & Co said on Monday it would stop development of its two COVID-19 vaccines and focus pandemic research on treatments, with initial data on an experimental oral antiviral expected by the end of March.


Merck was late to join the race to develop a vaccine to protect against the coronavirus, which has so far killed more than 2 million people and continues to surge in many parts of the world including the United States.


The company will record a pre-tax discontinuation charge in the fourth quarter for vaccine candidate V591, which it acquired with the purchase of Austrian vaccine maker Themis Bioscience, and V590, developed with nonprofit research organization IAVI, Merck said in a statement.


In early trials, both vaccines generated immune responses that were inferior to those seen in people who had recovered from COVID-19 as well as those reported for other COVID-19 vaccines, the company said.


The announcement is a setback to the fight against the pandemic and comes a month after Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline delayed launch of their shot to late 2021, underscoring the challenges of developing vaccines at record speed.


Tens of millions of doses of vaccines from rivals Pfizer Inc and German partner BioNTech as well as from Moderna Inc have so far been administered globally.


Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca Plc and others are also racing to develop safe and effective vaccines to protect against the virus.


Merck said it would focus COVID-19 research and manufacturing efforts on two investigational medicines: MK-7110 and MK-4482, which it now calls molnupiravir.


Molnupiravir, which is being developed in collaboration with Ridgeback Bio, is an oral antiviral being studied in both hospital and outpatient settings.


Merck said a Phase 2/3 trial of the drug was set to finish in May, but initial efficacy results were due in the first quarter and would be made public if clinically meaningful.


Merck said results from a Phase 3 study of MK-7110, an immune modulator being studied as a treatment for patients hospitalized with severe COVID-19, were expected in the first quarter.


Shares of Merck fell 1% to $80.12 in trading before the bell.

Moderna making booster shot to combat COVID variant strains

https://www.yahoo.com/news/moderna-making-booster-shot-fight-143725096.html

Moderna will develop a Covid-19 booster shot designed to be more effective against emerging strains of the coronavirus, the Massachusetts manufacturer announced Monday.


New strains of the coronavirus have emerged in the United Kingdom, South Africa and Brazil, along with concerns that they could make vaccines less effective, and be more transmissible or deadly.


Moderna's announcement comes days after the U.S. government's top infectious disease expert, Anthony Fauci, said that the Biden administration is "paying very close attention" to the variants. "There are alternative plans if we ever have to modify the vaccine," said Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, at a White House briefing Thursday.


Moderna is testing two booster-shot options — one specifically aimed at the South African variant and another to broadly fight new mutations. Laboratory research using blood from people and monkeys who had received the company's vaccine found that the U.K. variant did not appear to reduce the production of neutralizing antibodies. But the South African variant showed a sixfold reduction, the company said.


Other research has suggested the U.K. variant is more transmissible than previous versions of the virus. On Friday, a U.K. government science advisory board said there "is a realistic possibility" that the U.K. variant is also more deadly.


Moderna said the development of the booster is a precaution because its already-authorized two-dose regimen still offered substantial protection against the U.K. and South African strains in the lab study.


“As we seek to defeat the COVID-19 virus, which has created a worldwide pandemic, we believe it is imperative to be proactive as the virus evolves,” Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel said in a statement. The company is starting human trials for the South African booster shot “out of abundance of caution,” he added.


Moderna conducted the laboratory study in collaboration with NIAID, and has published the research online in bioRxiv ahead of peer review. The company said it will submit the study to a peer-reviewed journal.

These covid briefings are smart now. Lol There isn't a clueless president hogging the spotlight spewing nonsense about injecting ourselves and arguing with reporters. The medical people are talking. It reminds you how stupid things were.

Have your state politicians started opening everything up again (schools, restaurants, etc) after the inauguration?


Here in Maryland, a couple weeks ago (before the inauguration), our governor was reporting that the state's COVID numbers were at their highest levels. Now (after the inauguration), the governor is reporting that our COVID numbers are good even though they haven't dropped much. He has mandated that schools are to open by March 1st even though teachers haven't been vaccinated and vaccine is in such short supply there is no way the teachers will complete the 2-dose regimen prior to returning to schools. The 10 pm curfew for bars and restaurants has been lifted and capacity limits have increased. Vaccine is in short supply but the governor seems to be full-steam ahead on opening everything up now even though very few people have been vaccinated


The governor's words and actions regarding COVID since the inauguration have been a complete 180 degree flip from before the inauguration. It really makes it seem like this has been a political conspiracy all along.

I am scheduled to get the second shot in 3 weeks. Hopefully, it will be as smooth as the first - although it is reported that side effects are more common with the second dose.
Got second shot early on Tuesday morning. The only negative that I experienced was a mild headache later in the evening but I am not sure that it was a side effect of the shot. Instead, I think it was the result of me getting a bad night's sleep the night before. I went to bed early on Tuesday evening and woke up feeling great.

I wasn't happy to get the vaccine so early in the rollout. I would have preferred to wait a while to see if any widespread issues were reported after more people got the vaccine. Unfortunately, since I will be expected to staff upcoming COVID vaccination clinics and will have a higher risk of coming into contact with COVID+ people, I figured getting the vaccine was the lesser of two evils.

Yup.  Zero school for 11 moths ad all the sudden, we are opening schools at our highest umbers to date.
