Nearly 3 million Americans haven't gotten their second COVID-19 vaccination on time

They scheduled my second appointment three weeks after the first.  The only reason I would not take it is if I were sick.   I still potentially could catch COVID-19.  However, I saw an article recently that claimed that the reported 50% protection from the first COVID vaccine is inaccurate.  This statistic reportedly is only based on the first 2 weeks.  They found that the third week had 90% protection.  Good to know.

What's Up with Those Bird Beak Plague Masks?

I learned from this:

The word "quarantine" comes from the Italian word "quarenta" meaning forty because they would isolate bubonic plague victims for forty days.

I was well aware of the Miasma theory of disease, which was the dominant theory of disease for 1200 years up to 1850 and beyond when the germ theory disease was just starting and didn't become fully accepted until around 1890.

Indiana hopes to lower vaccine age next week

State leaders say they don't have enough vaccine yet to expand to those 60 and older. They hope to make that change next week. Right now, Hoosiers 65 and older are eligible.

FWD: Pfizer COVID Vaccine Side Effects | My Terrible COVID Vaccine Reaction


Apparently, a percentage of people have had temporary unpleasant side effects to the COVID vaccine.  Several of my family members have taken both shots without problems, so I still want it.

Growth of COVID-19

I used to follow the COVID numbers almost daily, but this got tiresome especially since the numbers kept going up. I was shocked yesterday to see that Indiana was up to 626,682 cases. This is double the number of cases in November, which is almost 1 out of ten people. Presumably, there are many more mild cases that we don't know about, which could mean that up to half the state has been infected.

In January of last year, I was already sounding the alarm when it was just a few thousand cases in China. I noticed that the trend was rapidly exponential, although some of my friends on Facebook were saying it wasn't really exponential growth because China was just doing a better job of detecting the disease. In February, public officials were saying that this isn't a big threat with many people saying that the flu was going to kill a great many more people.

In early March there weren't that many cases in the U.S., and it looked like the disease was contained, but by March 21 the disease had exploded and was everywhere in the country.

The mRNA vaccine is not gene-altering. It provides instructions to cells on how to make the spike protein without altering the DNA of the cells, which is part of the point.  Our cells make messenger RNA continuously, and it gets used up quickly.
