    The owner of this company is my neighbor. They built a mobile COVID-19 vaccination vehicle:

    Got round 1 of Moderna in my arm yesterday. I can feel it, but it's not bad enough to warrant painkillers.

    Interesting note, the guy who administered the vaccine said to lightly exercise the arm frequently. He suggested multiple weight lifting motions with no weights and stretching for a few minutes every hour or so.

    This is good advice after any vaccine. Helps prevent the soreness and tenderness at the injection site.

    Something that has been swept under the rug is the dramatic rise in hate crimes directed at Americans of Asian ancestry. This has been directly caused by Trump's racist rhetoric.

    If you live near Walled Lake, MI and get your vaccination, you can get a free pre-rolled joint from Green House marijuana dispensary.

    FDA Advisory Committee on Vaccines etc. meets tomorrow to review the Jannsen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine. With an expected favorable recommendation tomorrow, FDA should complete the EUA paperwork by early next week, and vaccine #3 should be in distribution next week.

    This is the one shot, refrigerator stored vaccine that will be logistically easier to manage in areas without super cold freezers.

    Here is a link to the committee page which has links to materials and for listening to the meeting.

    J&J got their Emergency Use Authorization from FDA. They also got favorable approval from CDC.

    ETA: CDC approval allows U.S. government to ship the vaccine (in addition to the manufacturer.)
    .
    They claim to have 3.9 million doses ready to ship this week. That should help with vaccine supply, particularly to areas that don't have super-cold freezers.

    "Public health officials say it's important to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible to reduce the risk posed by new coronavirus variants. One strategy to stretch existing supplies – albeit with huge logistical challenges — would be to give just one dose of the vaccine to people who have recovered from COVID-19.

    About half a dozen small studies, all consistent with one another but as yet unpublished, suggest this strategy could work."

    This is not helping matters.
    The Arch Diocese of New Orleans telling parishioners not to take the J&J vaccine because at some point cells from aborted fetuses were used in developing the vaccine.

    You basically would need to give up on all modern medicine as those type of cell lines are used in everything.
