My family is emotional close but physically a bit spread. Several of us have medical/science backgrounds. Covid and esp covid vaxing has us divided. A sister just took another swing at getting my house to vax. JJ is not mRNA, Delta is worse by 1,000....please just do it. I responded with experts in the related fields, peer review studies, treating professionals and adverse reaction data. Added a few pertinent questions. Said I understand her thoughts, but disagree, based on evidence. She responded with, 'Well nothing I show you will matter.' True, but only because I've seen all of the other side. I told her to send me anything...I will read and consider it. Also sent a photo of Crowder at the Change My Mind card table. Her response to that was: 'I'm eating lunch. I won't be sending you anything else.' Sigh.
My household is now in the medical e-records system as declined covid 19 vaccination. Had to go for an unrelated issue. We were asked, then offered, then 'informed', then documented. I await being Roger Stoned.
Helping a disabled family member with a long delayed visit to their primary doc. The practice is mostly elders. Neither of us have had the jab. Neither of us getting it. Doc has been knowledgeable, but malleable in the past. Should be interesting.
Anyone know TSA rules on rechargeable pocket battery packs for small devices? Are they allowed and is there a size limit. I've read the official TSA rules, but it's clear as mud. What happens in the real world? I don't want my good batteries to end up in a TSA auction bin.
My 24yo son has gotten the J&J. He's a grown ass adult, but that age is still short on life experience. I worked hard to educate him about all the coof issues, as had the one relative who has gotten it, yet still understands the full issue. Other family with medical backgrounds leaned on him to do it. His girlfriend, who had a very mild case, leaned on him to do it. He is just starting his first post college job in his chosen field, and they 'strongly encouraged' it. He caved...mostly to shut them all up, he said. I'm trying to feel microscopically better that it wasn't Pfizer or Moderna. This place is a cranky lifeline of sanity in a fucked up world. ☹️
