Praying for you, brother/sister -- hang in there. Thanks for your service.
Thank you, but totally unnecessary. At no point during Covid have I been frankly angry until I read that article. People have always made bad decisions, but bad decisions during Covid have made things more frustrating. But I still never got angry, even in the anecdote I posted a few minutes ago. Anyone in healthcare can tell you we are used to idiocy. But that article enraged me. That Roe guy is a piece of work.

So before I was interrupted by an out of touch bass guitar player, I was coming to post that perhaps Delta is starting to scare the sheet out of people. Colleague's son is a pharmacy tech at a North Shore Walgreens. He has to do three hours overtime due to them being inundated with people coming in for the vaccine.

Hopefully so.

I was very conflicted about getting the shot for several reasons. Then I got diagnosed with Hep C and my doc told me if I got Covid I was probably going die. (Stage 4 non alcoholic cirrhosis.)

I was leaning toward getting it but that was the deciding factor.

So glad I did it.

When the vaccines first became available, I said it was the duty of adults to get vaccinated since that was the best and pretty much only line of protection for the young in this country.

Louisiana is up to approximately 47.5% of adults fully vaccinated.

Has there been any info on how people who had covid but didn't get the vaccine after would/are fare/faring with the Delta variant?

Glad to hear it. I was worried about getting it as well, since people who had GBS aren't even supposed to get the flu vaccine but the mRNA vaccines are supposed to be safe

Can't say I was convinced or without worry, but i had covid and in my mind the benefits far outweighed the risks even with the GBS issue

My oldest son is 23 and had Covid in early January. He hasn't gotten vaccinated yet. My wife and I have told him he needs to get vaccinated...but he's been putting it off. He works at home improvement store and interacts with customers, wears a mask, but...meh. I hope he gets it done soon, but he's hard headed like me.
