    Anyone know if the BMI > 25 stuff made it in to the final FDA approval for third boosters? I can only find reference to it with the panel's recommendations not with the actual approval.

    Someone bolted a big yellow sign to a tree outside of my neighborhood that says UNMASK OUR CHIDREN. It’s right across from a preschool and I can just about guarantee the person that added that doesn’t have a student there.

    The typo is incredibly on-brand.

    from the article...

    Another thorny question the CDC advisers will continue to discuss Thursday is what people who were originally vaccinated with Moderna or Johnson & Johnson should do, as Wednesday's emergency use authorization included only people who received Pfizer's vaccine.

    "That's going to leave half of people immunized being told that they’re at risk now of waning immunity and hospitalization and unable to get a booster dose," said ACIP member, Dr. Sarah Long, a professor of pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. "That’s a big public health panic that we would like to avoid.”

    Moderna has submitted data about its booster dose to the FDA, and Johnson & Johnson is working on doing the same.

    I'd far prefer they just give people data instead of worrying all the time about how its received.

    Trying to massage facts in a gentle way just means their communications have been all over the place as a result. Only seems to confuse people and feed the conspiracy machine.

    No one wants to give a “Yes/No” answer because they’re then responsible. I see this all the time at work and it’s infuriating.

    “Here are the pros/cons.”

    “So what are we doing, and when?”

    “Depends.”

    “So what do I need to do?”

    “Make sure whatever we do is successful.”

    “What are we doing?”

    “Making sure it’s a success.”

    it’s actually better than it used to be. Seems like the states like Florida and Georgia are trending down currently but other states are getting hammered. Call me an optimist, but I think we are on a down trend but that has little to do with success of the government. Florida is actually on a good trend downwards for now.

    So as a teacher can I go get a booster today?

    Also, I had covid last year and am fully vaccinated. I've been super strict in terms of masks and haven't been going to restaurants or crowded places. This super immunity stuff that's been coming out is kind of making me rethink things. Probably going to start going back to restaurants.

    Not sure I understand, the stat isn’t new hospitalizations. That would be absurd. But if just total hospitalizations:new cases is some metric I haven’t heard talk of before, I’d appreciate your insight.

    This is bullshit in 99.9% of cases. Vaccines have been widely available for six months now, no wait since the beginning of the summer. They tell people this because it's the most socially acceptable answer.

    Yes, I'm not buying it's half the unvaccinated. I'm sure it's a sizeable chunk but I feel like people are still giving this as an excuse for just mostly being lazy and not prioritizing it. Even the shitty southern states tried to roll out mobile vaccine clinics to make it easier for people like this and then stopped when too few people showed up.

    Fat Ron said yesterday its too much to quarantine when 98% of quarantined kids end up being negative. Which a smart person would realize "GOOD THEN IT'S DOING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO" instead of releasing that other 2% back into the school.

    wouldn't it be too early to give rapid tests that soon after exposure though? So kid tests positive Wednesday and then you go back to school Thursday with a negative test. Isn't that too quick? (yes I know it depends on when the patient was actually infected too as far as when "exposure" started). But as far as exposure from someone who is symtomatic?

    As a parent of three in florida, she's not wrong. Quarantines have been kind of a disaster for both schools and parents.

    The issue is it's not quarantines so much as the lack of viable online option.

    I can't speak to Texas, but in Florida we have a balanced budget amendment. We can't spend money unless its been generated through taxes. We also have no income tax, meaning revenue comes from property and sales tax. I can't imagine there's been as much sales tax as there would normally be, and I wouldn't be surprised if there's simply not enough money for online options.

    Instead of admitting our state is underfunded and a bit of a wreck, and completely and totally ill-prepared for black swans, they'd rather just yell freedom and yeehaw on through it.

    That's my working theory, at least.

    Texas schools don’t even have to tell the parents if their kid has been exposed. So either her school is trying to hint hint, wink wink at her or she’s lying for FB cred. Either way it’s irresponsible.

    Florida is fucking rolling in money because property tax rates are soaring with the housing boom. It more than makes up any losses in sales tax.
