    Doses are allocated by population. AL has not received a proportionally fewer amount than elsewhere (tiny population states, excepted). According to the tracker on the Washington Post, AL has received vaccine to reach 18% of the population. My state is 17.5%. FL is 17.9%, CA is 17.8%. What is...

    So you think the current level of vaccination levels will be enough to stop the UK variant from becoming dominant? As in when they sequence the positive samples, and add the various types up the UK variant won’t be the highest in quantity?

    And what, pray tell, will be the mechanism from preventing it? At this level of global case levels and vaccination levels, and US levels of mitigation, there isn't one. It demonstrates a flaw in the messaging that in the rush to stop people from freaking out about every variant that makes the...

    Everyone has read this week's NY Times article about Brazil’s P1 variant, yes? Brazil is being quite the case study on why relying on natural immunity is not a good enough solution. The calculations toward herd immunity will have to be based on vaccination rates. The percentage of people with...

    The impact will be on people working. If you are a server in a restaurant at half capacity vs one that is 100%, you're risk of exposure goes up. If your boss told you to wear a mask before, and now is telling you not to (because you know there will be bosses that do that) your exposure goes...

    You don't want to ask me, I'm the negative nelly. Only 16% of the US population has received a first dose, which leaves a lot of people still eligible to get infected. A vaccine given next month will not help with this. But with so many elderly, and vulnerable people having completed their...

    The fourth wave is from the UK variant, that since December, have been predicted to become the dominant strain in the US in March. Now we're in March and we will see what happens; like a mid-term exam. It's not expected to be like winter, but more like the bumps that hit certain areas over the...

    Yeah, Texas is going to test the Libertarian theory that people will choose the right thing and vaccine efficacy all at the same time. Let’s watch.

    I think May 1 is a good target for starting the general public, but I expect it will take 1-2 months to finish the shots. I posted earlier how CO is starting the next group 1B3 on Friday, of about 958,000 people. To date, CO has 913,000 who have received a first dose. So this next group is...

    Diaries on Daily Kos is how I first found out about this weird virus in China. A person started posting about it end of January and began posting updates daily, or multiple times per day. MSM was slower on the uptake on how serious and disruptive the virus had the potential to be and so these...

    And just a quick note about CO. Vaccinations for K-12 teachers and childcare workers were opened on Feb 8th. As of today, 78% of the 120,000 eligible have received a first dose. Phase 1B3 (age 60+, grocery and agriculture workers, and those with 2 conditions ~958,000 people) starts on Friday...

    Never fear... I think these guys are overly optimistic about the backside of the pandemic, same as so many were on the frontside, and this spring and next winter will have a bigger "bite" than people are imagining. Even if it is a massive improvement over the last year. 80% decline from this...

    It's like suddenly no one has watched a football game, or any sports. Normally, when a team gains an advantage, the message is to "crush them!" Put your foot on their neck and make them beg for mercy. Ram it down their throats, and a million other clichés. There has also, over the last...

    I can't shake the feeling that spring break is coming and they want to squeeze in a few more tables. And the cost for safety theater is "be stricter with masks." Or even things like tightening up the window between bookings to hopefully flip a few more tables. So more people might be waiting...
