  1. I was lucky, as a steroid shot took care of mine. (NOB) The doctor said I might need 2 shots, but just before I was starting to consider the second shot, it released.
  2. why don't you go to their office and ask?
  3. I buy mine in the Pharmacy section of large Supermarkets. Have to ask where it is, as they tend to "hide" it. About 22 pesos a gallon.
  4. I don't have anymore time to waste here. Fear and Ignorance do not live at My House !
  5. If you "breeze through a market unmasked" that is your decision and Not Mine. I am not responsible for your actions nor can I control them. I can, however, control what I do and how I protect myself. I cannot put blame on someone else if I were to get ill in that situation, because the reason I became ill was because I did Not do everything that I needed to do to keep myself safe. If you want to blame someone else for your failings, I have no control over that, but I find that relates to not accepting the responsibility for one's own actions, and Heaven knows that our current World is eat up with that type of thinking. Fear and Ignorance do not live at My House.
  6. We are Not all in this together. Everyone is responsible for their own health/lives. No one is responsible for the health/lives of others, Unless you are their guardian/parent/protector. You can try to blame your lack of preparation on others, but to me, "that dog just don't hunt". Fear and Ignorance are good buddies. They don't live in my house.
  7. One thing for sure that we have known from the "get go": this virus is with us forever, just like the Flu is with us forever. If you have been "waiting" for it to "go away", you will not live that long. So, learn what YOU need to do to protect Yourself. That is YOUR responsibility.
  8. They all will need that third "booster" eventually. Moderna says they believe theirs will be ready for this Fall. They both speculate that you will need a new "shot" every year, just like for the Flu. The good news is that Pfizer hopes to have their "pill" ready at the end of this year to treat the virus "at home", if you catch it early.

Should they? What, if any, ethics are involved?
  11. 0 deaths 2 family member had it, one 98 yrs old female, mild case; the other 53 yrs old male, had 4 tough days, but neither hospitalized. Both fully recovered.
  12. So far In 2021, United States border agents have detained 147,000 Mexican migrants, two-thirds of all such arrests made. If trend continues, US authorities could see highest number since 2008 https://mexiconewsdaily.com/news/massive-increase-in-mx-migration-recorded/?utm_source=The+Whole+Enchilada&utm_campaign=f306b9d13b-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN+The+Whole+Enchilada&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_f17425060f-f306b9d13b-350176874
  13. If you would have read more carefully, you would have discovered many things that you "failed" to mention. (1)Those in the group were much younger than a normal sample, because the older people had been vaccinated much longer (2) Did not include anyone who had been vaccinated more than 21 days after the second dose (3) etc. Pfizer said that the protection after the first dose was not 95% and this study verifies that. This study says nothing about those vaccinated more than 21 days after the second dose. This simply confirms what Pfizer has said about the first dose. Nothing new here, so move along !
  14. Spoken like a true Leftist ! Congratulations ! P.S. But, we already knew that. )
  15. You can tell the slugs, as they crawl out from under the rocks to spoil things for others. Such slime.
  16. Pfizer says that their vaccine has been 100% effective for over 6 months already. No one has been positive for covid after getting both Pfizers.

  19. Pfizer says COVID-19 vaccine 100% effective, safe in kids as young as12. Researchers said there were 0 instances of coronavirus among the vaccinated group.
  20. Agree. I don't see them stopping, but moving ahead.
  21. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/mar/28/mexico-covid-death-toll-rise-60-percent Mexico’s government has acknowledged that the country’s true death toll from the coronavirus pandemic now stands above 321,000, almost 60% more than the official test-confirmed number of 201,429. Mexico does little testing, and, because hospitals were overwhelmed, many Mexicans died at home without getting a test. The only way to get a clear picture is to review “excess deaths” and review death certificates. On Saturday, the government quietly published a report based on those figures, which found there were 294,287 deaths linked to Covid-19 from the start of the pandemic through 14 February. Since 15 February there have been an additional 26,772 test-confirmed deaths. The higher toll would exceed that of Brazil, which has the world’s second-highest number of deaths after the US. The Johns Hopkins coronavirus tracker puts Brazil’s toll at about 307,000 and the United States’ at 548,000, but Mexico’s population of 126 million is far smaller than those of either of those countries.
