    And probably not a good restaurant either.

    Even less. The JC Penny closed, leaving only Ocean State Job Lots (which surprisingly, is a great source of packaged European food brands), a discount shoe store, a gym, an auto supply store and a branch of the DMV. And now, about 200 doses of vaccines given per day. Too bad there's virtually...

    Here's the funny thing I've noticed. This website has a collection of posters whose opinions on all matters COVID are more informed and in-line with the evolving science consensus than Medscape. The comments section of Medscape is supposed to be open only to medical professionals, but because...

    Guess what we're using our local, almost dead mall for? State-run vaccination site!

    COVID-19

    "Long covid" is most likely a grab-bag of different mechanisms. We see many of the same problems in people who have survived a septic illness or a long ICU stay. There's probably not much unique to COVID going on here, but because the disease hit a lot more younger people who were more likely...

    I assume they've finally released the trial paper? Anyone have a link (I'm too lazy to look it up right now).

    We can be optimistic and cautious at the same time.

    FYI, the governement does NOT have direct access to medical records, other than death certificates and certain reportable diseases.

    I have patients with severe COPD. Their breathing is completely unaffected by wearing a mask. A mask does not increase the work of breathing, decrease the available oxygen concentration or trap excess CO2 (which should be obvious to anyone who understand the basic physics and chemistry of...

    Vermont changed their quarantine requirements effective today. The changes: 1) If you are fully vaccinated, and greater than 14 days out since your last dose, you no longer need to quarantine or test negative to visit the state. 2) Vermont residents who meet the same requirement do not need...

    What should HS's icon be?

    I might be combining things in my memory into stuff that never actually existed, but I seem to recall early on that they used Mickey with the clapboard highlighted in front of the MGM lion logo.

    Magic Kingdom TV Universe in Development at Disney+

    Whatever they do, please make it better than that night-time quest in the Magic Kingdom show. I could only tolerate about 2 minutes of the over-acting and over-emoting of the young contestants.

    What is the funniest WDW attraction?

    I remember another attraction that was always good for at least one belly laugh from the crowd: the water effects demonsrtation on the Backlot Tour. You knew the "volunteer" (more likely, plant...) was going to get wet, but the massive size of the big splash at the end came as a surprise if you...

    What should HS's icon be?

    A giant trademark symbol (™), to represent the park as a dumping ground for stray intellectual properties.

    COVID-19 Vaccination

    If your reaction to Miralax was loose stool, though... obviously that isn't an allergy and you can get the vaccine. (Yes, I actually had this conversation with a patient).

    We accept the risks and use mitigation strategies, but that doesn't mean we allow guests to have free rein to do anything they want in our facilities. Infection control is and always will be part of our jobs.

    Golden era of World Showcase

    Shhhh! Next thing you know, we'll have a cross-over movie in which the version of "Norwegian mythology" we get isn't based on the sagas, the Poetic or Prose Edda, but the Marvel properties of Thor, Oden and Loki.

    For end-stage hospice, where the patient is getting morphine to keep them comfortable, no, they probably are not receiving the vaccine. But we're vaccinating most of our hospice patients otherwise. If they catch COVID, even if they don't receive aggressive care, they can still pass it to other...

    The report noted that the deaths did not exceed the background rate, so probably not.

    Of those deaths were they had the full medical information available, they did not exceed the background expected mortality for age and medical conditions.
