I never heard that? It's really really bad. People asking on Reddit where they can get oxygen and medication for there family members. Family members of people in the hospital are buying oxygen on the black market for them.

Good to hear that you got yourself and the missus the AZ jab. I completely believe in the statement that "the vaccine that is available to you right now is the best vaccine there is".

Having said that, I'm just going to ask you to please keep in mind that even after you've had your 2nd jab (whenever that happens), the AZ vaccine does not seem to afford a great deal of protection against mild to moderate COVID infections caused by the South African variant:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/william...h=5b6384896526

I seem to think that SumAznGuy and a few others here on RS have also gotten the AZ vaccine. So please keep this in mind, and don't consider yourself immune to COVID now.

At this point, I am like 99.99% convinced that we're all gonna need a 3rd booster shot like the Pfizer scientist has said...

At this point, I don't think any of the vaccines are super effective against any of the mutations. Even P and M were tested in the summer when the UK strain wasn't that relevant and now with the double mutation in India.

I do agree, any vaccine right is is the right one.

This stupid fucking story. What the fuck is global thinking?
https://globalnews.ca/news/7788196/b...and-road-trip/
Quote:
Amid dwindling stocks of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine and high demand, some British Columbians are going far afield to try and get “the jab.”

“For me it was an enormous weight lifted, I was quite emotional,” Janelle David told Global News.

She and coworker and fellow Masters weightlifter Cat Hambly found themselves on an unexpected spur of the moment road trip to Whistler, Saturday — after striking out on a shot at the shot in Vancouver.

On Friday, news of a walk-in vaccine clinic at Vancouver Community College spread rapidly through word of mouth, attracting large crowds, hundreds of whom were turned away when supply ran out.

Hambly and David returned to the site early Saturday morning hoping to get in early.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT

“(We) lined up with hundreds of people, it went around the block twice. And once the clinic opened at 9:30, about an hour later we were notified they were out of doses,” David said.

Both Hambly and David registered to be vaccinated as soon as eligibility opened for their age group, and both were on multiple waitlists for the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The pair are both competing virtually in upcoming world championships next month and were hoping to get their shot as soon as possible so it didn’t interfere with training.

After being turned away Saturday, they decided to start looking farther afield.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT

A friend in Squamish told them there were still bookings available — a tip that turned out to be correct but conflicted with their work schedule. But further up Highway 99, they got lucky with an open slot in Whistler.

That’s where a Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist told them he had bookings available and assured them they were permitted to travel to the community for a shot.

“We assumed it was the same health region, but verified it with him,” David said.

“Like the IKEA ad I said ‘Start the car,’ and we jumped in the car and raced to Whistler in two hours.”

B.C. opened eligibility for the AstraZeneca vaccine to people over the age of 40 on Monday, with people responsible for finding and booking their own shot through a community pharmacy.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT

Those bookings filled up fast, with most pharmacies now running long waitlists.

On Thursday, provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said the province had not received any shipments of the vaccine since the week before and wasn’t sure when it would get more.

“We have very little of it left in the province right now,” she said.

Many have since turned to social media, where accounts like @VaxHuntersCan have been sharing locations that still have supply available.


Hambly chalked the massive demand among the Gen-Xers to the fact that the demographic remains on the front lines of the pandemic.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW ADVERTISEMENT

“We’re the workers still, right? We’re out there with the public.”

David said working closely with clients every day during the pandemic left her constantly anxious.

“It’s weighed heavily that I could become ill, they could become ill, we could be passing it along,” she said.

READ MORE: COVID-19: AstraZeneca vaccine supply dries up in B.C. Interior

With much of B.C.’s remaining supply of the AstraZeneca vaccine now being redirected to clinics in 13 high-transmission communities, the search for available shots is likely to only get tougher.

But the pair say those looking to be vaccinated shouldn’t give up.

“Just be persistent,” Hambly said.

“Just be hungry for it,” David added. “This is a time when we have to take our health into our own hands and do what we need to do.”
TLDR people ignore travel guidelines to get vaccine in whistler, and act like they are fucking superheroes because of it.

I almost threw my remote at the TV when I saw this story. Not only was this cringe piece a waste of air time, it ran at least a solid 5 minutes. It was way worse than the article printed above.

And this just after I went three weeks without watching cable news. When will I learn?
