Guess the state will have to officially place high-risk folks in current tier for venues to actually vaccinate?

We have sort of a lotto system right now.... folks of all ages (and eligibles without appointments) appear at vaccination sites and hope for leftovers due to no-shows or disqualifications. Only vaccination used in the U.S. is Pfizer and Moderna - both have short useful life after preparation and cannot be rolled over for next day use. So they line-up and await inoculation by verified DOB with priority given to oldest.

Re: COVID-19 Virus

State did place high risk as eligible for vaccine now. But vaccine venue only offer to over 65. News supposed to investigate the non compliance of vaccine venue tonight...
One hospital an hour away has some vaccine held for highest risk high risk folks, as I am, I got put in that lottery .

Re: COVID-19 Virus

Well, as an update on the SailBoat household: Mrs. got her second shot this last Wednesday. Some minor site pain and felt a bit-off as her body was busy producing antibodies. I'm scheduled for this coming Wednesday.

Clearly, the guidelines are defined by one's State, as Michigan includes high risk as part of group 1c.

In another part of the World and not related to this Monster Virus:

" Russia on Saturday announced that it has identified the first cases of H5N8 avian influenza in humans, according to multiple reports.

Anna Popova, the country's public health chief, said in televised comments that seven cases were detected in workers at a poultry farm in southern Russia, Bloomberg News reported. Authorities have reported information on the cases to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Popova said that the workers had mild cases and were recovered. The poultry farm was the site of an outbreak among birds in December, Bloomberg noted.

Re: COVID-19 Virus

Well, I tested positive yesterday.

I went through a full week of common flu symptoms, but it wasn’t until I lost my sense of taste that I suspected COVID.

Re: COVID-19 Virus

Assure that your Doctor provides an aggressive use of medications to combat this Monster Virus!

May your treatment be successful.

Re: COVID-19 Virus

1) I made the appointment for my test Sunday, in the middle of the night. It was for 10am Monday, so like zero wait time. (Curative testing location, Coral Springs, FL.)

2) You receive an email with a video link explaining how you will do the test, which is totally self administered. Swabs of mouth only, no nasal, and someone is monitoring you.

3) I get to the testing facility, zero wait, and unlike the video, the woman swabs my nasal passages. Huh?

4) She tells me I’ll receive the results via text in a half-hour. A half-hour!? Who ever heard of this?

5) 35 minutes later, I get the positive result.

Ira,
I'm sorry to hear this. I'm wishing you a speedy recovery.

Carrots juice to boost your vitamin A, take a vitamin D supplement. A lot of people are low on vitamin D , and there us lots of info that people do better with higher vitamin D levels.
Take care of yourself please.

Re: COVID-19 Virus

Ira, may your recovery be solid and swift.

We are in good health, however my physician's office want's me in for my annual exam. The problem I have with that is my primary care physician died last month from complications from COVID-19. I was already leery of waiting room risks.
