Gramps is getting wooly. After we feel fairly safe by being vaccinated, he's going to take an envelope to his barber appointment with some bills in it for a Christmas gift and some more for the time he skipped.
this is exactly what worries me.
I had my 1st dose of Moderna. I go back on 2/5 for my 2nd dose.
My God, the Norwegians are vaccinating terminally ill patients. I wonder if this is being done in the US?
Norwegian authorities have prioritised the immunisation of residents in nursing homes, most of whom are very elderly with underlying medical conditions and some of whom are terminally ill. NOMA confirm the number of incidents so far is not alarming, and in line with expectations,

Where I live...no one but hospital workers or nursing home residents (or workers) is able to get the vaccine.
It is what it is and while bitching on a blog is unlikely to make a difference...sometimes that is our only option.
Not everyone can drive long distances to maybe get the shot.
Missouri is simply not even getting the vaccines out well enough yet to the first tier who want it.
Except maybe in KC or St Louis and I am about as far away from those cities as it is possible to be.
I put my mom on the list through our local hospital...and myself...but she gets it first...eventually it will be available through the hospital/doctor network or our local WalMart.
In the meantime we continuing doing what we are doing.
So klm49...thank you so much for your very unhelpful remarks. Your empathy level must be in the negative numbers.
Have a nice day.
I've seen enough studies, I take a bunch of VitD3, (did that before covid, just continuing what I was doing, recommendation is 35iu/lb body weight), my labs come back good when it's measured. I've said it before, I'll say it again, 1.2 million IU at Costco for 9.99, (600 2000iu capsules).JLROhio wrote: ↑Mon Jan 18, 2021 11:56 pmWell...it was nice knowing y'all!
Based upon my age, priorities that the vaccine is being given out, and states not doing a great job in managing distribution after receiving it from the Fed. Govt, etc...I estimate I'll get the vaccine by next Christmas!
So, I'll either be dead from COVID by then, or have gotten COVID and survived, or everyone else will have either got COVID or vaccinated and herd immunity will prevent me from getting it!
...better go get me some Vitamin D
