+10 Dale. Exactly. We have them too although a much lower percentage.

Dale, doesn't your state have enough ammunition to simply shoot each virus, one by one? I'm sure a virus is no match for a 30-06 and these days, that's a toy.

I believe this was a topic/ question earlier. Bottom line, even if you had Covid, vaccinating provides big time added protection. So no excuse not to get vaccinated.

When I see numbers like those in ICU or dead and the percent vax or no-vax, I compare the death rates. I keep seeing 90-95% benefit/reduction of the "big bads" for those vaccinated. Confirming in real-time the promised numbers from the testing for Pfizer and Moderna.

I still see the vaccines as like graphene. There will still be flats, cuts, etc. Now, if we go to a super-spreader event, our odds of getting sick might be 1 in 100 rather than 1 in 5. An N95 mask takes these odds to 1 in 2000 as opposed to 1 in 100. (I'm flying to a wedding next week. Whole flight (except perhaps a quick eat) will be with a new N95. Wedding will be with all vaxxed or tested (barring liars , perhaps by omission; my family is pretty responsible).

The vaccines aren't order of magnitude different/better than quality masks worn properly. Biggest advantage is that you can't leave the vaccine at home or get careless about wearing it. Biggest drawback - the sense of security. The bad places for N95s are bad places for the vaccinated. But with the vaccine you can still wear the N95. That level of protection never existed before.

Another interesting read. Long Covid. Focused on Alberta but applies generally.

More from the "you can't make this sh*t up" news lead
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/aug/16/vaccine-skeptic-us-cardinal-raymond-burke-ventilator-covid

Dang those true believers will never, ever get it. A friend of mine from high school, otherwise truly a smart guy, was very close to his 30 year old son, but recently lost that son to Covid. He lives in a low vaccination US state and frankly still doesn't get it, it was God's will etc. Sad, scary, and hard to believe all at the same time. Maybe some of that reality denying faith helped us help Europe defeat the Nazis and Imperial Japan but this is now and now is not great.

Apparently the crazy resides in Canada too (OK, this is Alberta, our wannebee mericans)

"Alberta feed stores inundated with calls for ivermectin over false claims livestock dewormer treats COVID"

Alberta = cold Texas.

Story in the local paper about the farm supply stores around here having a run on ivermectin. I told my wife the story will only drive more business to them. "So THAT'S who's got it in stock! Marge, go get in the truck, we're heading to the feed store."

OK, now I'm wondering if cat dewormer works too. We may have some in a cabinet somewhere.

Ivermectin is used in humans to treat river blindness and lice, not vaccine blindness and stupidity. The fidiots can't get it through Rx, so they go through other sources and don't pay attention to the dosage.

They are now taking Betadine, a topical anti-bacterial, to treat COVID.

Hey those mormon survivalists from Educated turned out to be an online global herbalist superpower. Through that lens it all makes sense.
