Michigan Expects Record Shipment of COVID Vaccines Next Week
Are you going to let them stick you in your arm?
The State of Michigan expects 409,340 COVID vaccines next week from the Federal Government. That is the biggest shipment yet from Uncle Sam, according to state health officials. So far, the state has administered 1.9 million of the 2.6 million doses shipped here. Click here to see the full story. Workers in food processing eligible to get their shots starting on Monday.
It's a great time too! Because just this week Michigan had the second most cases of the rapidly spreading British B.1.1.7. variant in America. Click here to see that. Over 300 cases.
Is the vaccine 100 percent effective? No, but I would prefer to take my chances with the vaccine and have some protection than attempt to battle these new variants. Plus, if they mix and get worse, some protection and antibodies are better than none. I really am amazed with the conspiracy theories on the internet.
Germany is experiencing an anti-vax situation currently and had 1.4 million doses just sitting in storage. A big problem is German's don't believe the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine isn't as effective as the others. Plus, it isn't approved for people over 65 years old. Click here to see that.
We have heard a lot about 'long COVID," people who have had COVID symptoms for as long as 9 months. It has a name now, it's called Post Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC). The symptoms included fatigue, shortness of breath, sleeping disorders, fevers, gastrointestinal issues, anxiety and depression, and so-called "brain fog.
Sounds like pandemic fatigue to me. I'll take my chances with a shot in the arm over all that.
