Yeah which makes me wonder if the second dose should/could just be pushed back longer

At first I was completely turned off by canadas decision of prolonging the second dose, now I'm wondering if we could go longer

If you were skeptical about the vaccine at all, even if you’re not anti-vax, and you’ve got no plans to travel out of the country I don’t really see the point in getting it at this point (for the time being)

You could easily wait a year or more if you were concerned about any long term effects with little risk to yourself if the positivity rate is accurate and not everyone is just an asymptomatic carrier now etc.

Any one in the medical field comment on if a second dose is actually any worse then a single? Or are people just worried about some short term effects? I’m talking in a broad sense, obviously not for this vaccine specifically

In my eyes, you already have that shit inside of you, may as well go for it 100%. Lol.

Also, keep in mind that those numbers are for protection against hospitalizations from the delta / India variant.

Additionally, while the policy announcements haven't been announced yet, I think we can pretty much guarantee that there will be far fewer restrictions for people who are "fully vaccinated" compared to those who have only received 1 shot (unless it is J&J, but that has not been used in Canada yet). So that'd be another incentive to just get both shots done.
Yeah, kind of my thought on it is might as well in case I want to travel (I want to travel, Mexico and Vegas are calling) and it's required. My wife is getting her second today, I'm getting mine in a week and a half and my teenager has his first I'd imagine he'll get his second in the next month or two.

Yup pretty much no country in the world is giving concessions for half-vaxxed travellers. Go full or stay home

The next major hurdle is developing a mechanism to prove you’re vaccinated. I heard on the news today that 1 in 5 adults would lie about being vaccinated if it meant they could travel.

That BC services card app has a very nice little vaccination card you can download as a PDF once you’ve linked that second website to it

For the services card app thing, does it get married to your specific cell phone?

I want to set this up, but my only cell phone is work issued so I don't exactly want to put something like this on there if all of a sudden it's taken away and I have to jump through hoops to un-marry it.

Hmm can’t say. It may because I just opened mine and there is zero login to see your name etc.

I haven't tried moving my BC Services app, it might be worth shooting them an email about how that works. Worst case grab an old phone or buy a cheap one and put it on that?

It is, but you can setup on a second device after (not sure what happens to the first device). I dropped my phone in a lake last week. With new phone had to redownload, then go through the approval process again.

India performed at least hundreds of thousands fake covid tests, This was done to meet govt daily test quotas

The full extent of the fraud isn't known


Copied from Reddit, but edited the quick summary as it was misleading

Surprise 1m Moderna shots incoming to the feds tomorrow, then off to the provinces afterwards. We might get a small tip of the needle for those with Moderna first shots?

I think we're getting them tonight and it's likely because the vaccination rates are stagnating so they over supply for a product that is going to go to waste. Since we're so close, why not just give it to us and get some good rep out of it.
