The one-dose vaccine cleared thresholds originally set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for a vaccine to be considered useful.

The FDA set a goal of 50%, so this is still well above that, even in South Africa. In the U.S. it was 72%, and 85% against severe cases, with no deaths and almost no hospitalizations (or none, I forget).

This is one shot, too.

Might be the type of shot for more average people to get, those not elderly or at high risk.

My Doctor and I discussed the vaccine at my physical. Getting 90+% with the first two vaccines was incredible per him. They are happy with 60-70% for the flu.

I read people over 75 have a 13.8% mortality from covid.

And that's why I'm not going outside, says Antonio Regalado.

My cohorts, allogeneic (not your own cells) bone marrow transplant patient on immune suppression have a 32% 30 day mortality rate after getting covid.  Yet I can't get the vaccine, I'm 63 and need to be over 65 in CA to get the vaccine.  they are predicting my group will get it sometime around June.

In the third paragraph:  "At 30 days after the diagnosis of COVID-19, overall survival was 68% (95% CI 58–77) for recipients of allogeneic HSCT "

My wife and I signed up, through a local health care college, for vaccines in early March.

We had to self-select what category we're in, and as a teacher, she selected 1B, and selected the same for me as I'm on the Penn State branch college faculty, and I interact with a number of kids.

My understanding is that they review each of the applications, and even though we have a date and time assigned to receive the vaccine, we can be bumped out of that spot if we're not in the group we chose, or whatever.

But, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. No emails were sent, and I'm not even certain it was a totally valid thing.

At age 65, I fall into Category 1B here in Virginia.  I just signed up with Fairfax County, immediately got a text and email confirming that I had submitted my information.  Apparently I'll get a call or email to actually schedule my appointment.

Coworker's father passed from COVID last night just a few months after her mother died from non-COVID causes. She couldn't be with either one of them.

Expectations for vitamin D and COVID-19

 

Quote

Put another way, patients not treated with vitamin D had 33.3 times the risk of ICU admission compared to patients treated with vitamin D.  And if you want further commentary on the importance of RCTs to distinguish signal from noise on issues like this, my conversation with Vinay Prasad gets to the heart of the matter.

Good thing to do, actually google the headline and look for scientific backing. 

coronavirus_london_hospital_nhs_jan_2021

The new UK variant of SARS-CoV-2 may be associated with an increased risk of death, emerging data are suggesting. In a briefing paper published on 22 January the government’s New and Emerging Respiratory Virus...

 

Quote

The prime minister, Boris Johnson, referred to the data at a Downing Street press briefing on 22 January, where the government’s chief scientific adviser, Patrick Vallance, said that the preliminary analyses suggested that in every 1000 men aged 60 years who were infected with the new variant 13 or 14 might be expected to die, compared with 10 in 1000 infected with the original variant.

So, looks like 30% more in mortality rate for men over the age of 60. Its still to soon to make concrete claims on this.

Just reading a news article were local police busted an illegal lounge/bar / restaurant. 77 people in a penthouse apartment. Menus, bar, tables. Third party in two weeks. Locals called it in.

No mask, no distancing. Complete disregard of any health laws/rules/suggestions.

Sorry...Buy 20 bottles, a few bags of weed, stay home and get loaded, if thats what you want. 

F-----g idiots.

Ever feel like you are in a whirlpool and you are on the verge of going under.  The missus came home last Fri from her school where she teaches totally drained, went to bed thinking her sinuses were the reason (she deals with allergies and such all the time).  Fast forward to last night - she loses all sense of smell.  Gets tested today - if positive, we quarantine.  Sad thing - NC's governor wants all schools to go back to in person teaching, but won't push to have all the teachers vaccinated first....go figure.  Like I said the whirlpool is spinning faster and faster.

Flordia?

 I wonder how many “medical exemptions” are supratentorial in nature?

    • I can't wait to hear about them.  I'm probably not getting new hybrids this year, but if I did, these would be near the top of my consideration list.  Please let us know how they are.
    • I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.   Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
    • Thing is TV shows the good shots, the putts being made so we all think they hit everything close and make every putt. Go look up PGA tour proximity to the hole... you’d be surprised it’s not close like you see.
    • I would have to agree, as agile and strong as they are with a game of golf, they probably would look pathetic in a fighting ring. If and when they get their dup together that will be a good show. Although I think the media has hyped it beyond what it really is and would just be a competitive round of golf like most others.
    • I dunno. Watching two meat heads who probably have no idea how to fight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’d rather see them play some serious golf and really give the tour a show.
