COVID-19, The ONLY info you need...


Wear seatbelt.
Still have vehicle accident.
Still get hurt.
Still possible hospitalization. Still Possible death.

In both circumstance, hospitalization and death are less likely—the odds for survival are better with than without. Nothing is 100% foolproof, especially for the determined fool.
Seat belts are required by LAW.
Even then, it's still a choice as the government isn't going to be there to buckle you in.

“Those are the same people who told us they wouldn’t trust ANY vaccine developed under the last administration.”
None of them are the experts we should be listening too. Too many people are listening to the wrong people and not the people they should be listening too.

If someone can’t understand that standards might change as circumstances and developments change, as well as newer information becomes available, there is no hope for them. However IMO, people are using it more as an argument rather than even believing it themselves.

Furthermore, why in the heck would anyone with an IQ above 65 believe or trust anything that the lying POS trump says?

Covid surge prompts one Florida county to ask residents to use 911 sparingly​

"I can tell you compared to March or July where we were last year to where we are now, this is a lot worse," a Brevard County fire official said.

First responders along Florida's Space Coast pleaded with residents Wednesday to think twice before calling 911, as they struggle to contain the region's skyrocketing number of Covid-19 cases.

Jampacked emergency rooms and intensive care units have slowed hospital operations to a crawl, Brevard County Fire Rescue and Emergency Management officials said.

Those delays have forced them into the unprecedented position of asking residents of Florida's 10th largest county to consider other medical options before dialing those three digits for emergency help.

"If you need to call us, call us. We will never refuse transport," Orlando Dominguez, the fire department's assistant chief of emergency medical service operations, told NBC News on Wednesday.

"But we're also conveying to the public that if you've fallen and might have hurt your knee or you have a cough, things like that, that are not emergent or urgent, they should follow up with their primary care physician or go into a walk-in clinic."

He added that officials are trying to "reduce the bottleneck and avoid taking beds from the emergency department from those who really need them."

Even compared to the pandemic's darkest days of 2020, Dominguez said stress on the system "is a lot worse" now.
"I can tell you compared to March or July where we were last year to where we are now, this is a lot worse," he said.

An Alabama doctor is tired of helping people who refuse to protect themselves and others — so he’s no longer taking appointments with anti-vaxxers.

Mobile, Ala., physician Dr. Jason Valentine posted a photo on Facebook in which he’s seen standing in front of a sign that reads “Effective Oct. 1, 2021, Dr. Valentine will no longer see patients that are not vaccinated against COVID-19.”

According to Valentine, three of his unvaccinated patients suddenly came to their senses and asked where they could get inoculated.
“No conspiracy theories, no excuses,” he wrote on Facebook. “Just where do I go.”

Alabama is one of several southern states that has struggled to contain the pandemic, due in part to vaccine skepticism. Valentine doesn’t appear to be picking on the ignorant so much as he doesn’t want to watch them hack, gasp and cough themselves to death after finally coming to appreciate the wonders of modern medicine once it’s too late.

“If they asked why, I told them covid is a miserable way to die and I can’t watch them die like that,” he wrote.
Comments on Facebook were mostly supportive of the doctor, though not so much of the yokels who oppose vaccinations as a matter of principle.

“BUt MuH Riytz!!!” wrote one sarcastic commenter.

Those who didn’t agree with Valentine’s new policy wondered if he’d continue to treat smokers who have cancer or diabetics, who don’t live healthily. Valentine told his Facebook followers his mandate wouldn’t include people who are ineligible for vaccinations, like children.
AL.COM reports that Valentine plans to send a letter to his patients telling them that if they object to his position, he will happily forward their medical records to a practitioner of their choosing.

“We do not yet have any great treatments for severe disease, but we do have great prevention with vaccines. Unfortunately, many have declined to take the vaccine, and some end up severely ill or dead,” that letter reportedly says. “I cannot and will not force anyone to take the vaccine, but I also cannot continue to watch my patients suffer and die from an eminently preventable disease.”

Great! The FDA has given final approval to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Now those folks who were just waiting on final approval can get vaccinated.

Coming soon thanks to 110,000 unvaccinated refugees!
Hopefully they will be more thoughtful and appreciative of the opportunity to protect themselves and others than many of our own citizens.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has opened a COVID-19 vaccination site near Dulles International Airport in Virginia, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Friday, according to The Associated Press.


The Evacuations Will Continue In Kabul Despite The Likelihood Of Another Attack

The site, which offers the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, has reportedly already started vaccinating Afghans. It has State Department interpreters available to answer questions.

The federal government also reportedly has opened a mobile vaccination unit at Dulles to administer shots to American citizens and green card holders arriving from Afghanistan.

Dulles has been the only point of entry for evacuees so far, with thousands arriving there daily. Civilian flights with refugees are set to begin arriving in Philadelphia as soon as Friday, and a senior Biden administration official told the AP a second mass vaccination site is expected at Philadelphia International Airport in the coming days. The official was not authorized to comment publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

What happens when evacuees reach the U.S.

Thousands of Afghans and Afghan U.S. citizens have arrived this month through Dulles via places such as Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Germany, Spain and Bulgaria. Grant Neely, a spokesperson for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, put that number at 8,600 on Wednesday.

Arriving evacuees are tested for the coronavirus and isolated if they test positive. U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who test negative are allowed to go home.
