Sharon, I have to say I am really pissed off at the many anti vaccine trolls creating and distributing fake news and information about the mRNA vaccines. I work in a medical center and can say that our ICU's and other acute care units are crowded with patients whom engaged in vaccine hesitancy (including some previously) anti vaccine trolls. My friends working in Arizona ICU's are very frustrated that virtually ALL are unvaccinated patients. Many of these unvaccinated patients also do not believe in wearing a mask. I ask this one guy if he would remove the air filter and oil filter from his truck? "No, that is different" He is now on a ventilator. This has gone beyond ignorance. Just saying

          BJ, excellent point. Even mild upticks in icu visits can overwhelm and discombobulate health care facilities, which have limited surge capacity, affecting patent care across the board. The pandemic... more

                Choosing to not vaccinate is another word for suicide. Over a thousand die every day. It would take 22 plus years for all the unvaccinated to die for the U.S. to reach herd immunity. In 2020 a young p... more

                  Choosing to not vaccinate is also another word for homicide. Really disgusting that parents refusing to wear a mask in public and refusing to be vaccinated go out in public and then come home and ... more

          One option suggested by CDC guidelines: if everybody whom attends an indoor event are fully mRNA vaccinated (post op two weeks) there is no significant health risk. Having everybody show vaccine evide... more

                  Hey Tom, if you are fully vaccinated with Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines you should be okay unless you have an underlying medical condition? Another variable to consider is in Arizona the Republi... more
