Lower flu results due to masking was predicted last year by me.....I now take back my Miss Cleo crown!

Nicely done!
What do you think about this year? Will you get the flu shot?

I may get around to getting the flu shot, but probably not because we are all still masking, social distancing, washing hands...
Seeing the crazy decline in influenza makes me believe the flu is not even part of the equation anymore, so why get stabbed?

While last year was incredibly low, the flu season starts Week 40, which this year is Oct 4th week.

The current run rate while low is roughly twice the typical late 30s week run rates.  Multiple states are creeping into the Low activity level already where as a typical flu year all but one or two are bottoming out in the lowest of 3 minimal activity levels.

I understand that as a community, getting the flu shot protects me and my neighbors....but if anti vaccer's can be selfish so can I.

Why spend part of my day getting stabbed in the arm to help my community when influenza cases are so low?

9/16 Flu Vaccine Requirement for Students

All USC students taking in-person classes or living in university-owned residences in Fall 2020 are required to complete immunization for influenza by November 1. Students living in off-campus residences and taking classes remotely are also strongly encouraged to get a flu vaccine. Students returning to in person classes in Spring 2021 will be required to show proof of vaccination before they will be permitted on campus.

This requirement will help mitigate the potential simultaneous impact of flu and COVID-19 during the seasonal flu timeframe in the fall/winter months. Exact timing of flu season may vary, but activity often begins to increase in October; flu activity typically peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May.

Trust me on this....... The debate isn't like "Soylent Green" but more in the vein of "Children of Men".

Republican Governor of WV loses it over vaccine hesitancy.


He gives a list of excuses for vaccine hesitancy. Funny af
This is my favorite: Vaccine got something in it and its tracing people. And the same people that are saying that are carrying their cell around.  Haha

Seems like my dad got covid (high risk person) but he was vaccinated with his 2nd Moderna shot at the end of March.  He lost his taste, smell, has a slight fever, and a a little tired for the past few days but no cough or breathing issues.  I'm checking in with him daily and told him to go do a CVS PCR drive-thru test tomorrow to find out for sure.

I'm sorry to hear he is sick. Definitely have him tested ASAP. If he is positive, find a nearby hospital that offers IV monoclonal antibody treatment. If your dad is 65yo+ or other high risk category, he will qualify. You need to start the infusion within the first 10 days of symptom onset.

I thought fully vaccinated people didn't have to do anything extra.

The Express Urgent care in Tustin has Regeneron treatment signs out front.  I've seen clearly sick people going in.  Potentially less hassle than hospital.

I agree that current vaccines are very effective in preventing severe disease/death/hospitalization. Unfortunately with the delta variant, there are more breakthrough infections. Luckily most cases are only mild to moderate symptoms. But if you are positive and in a high risk category (i.e. older, underlying health conditions, etc...), I would still advise monoclonal antibody treatment regardless of vaccine status.

Here are a few links to help you locate an infusion center that offers monoclonal antibody treatment:

https://protect-public.hhs.gov/pages/therapeutics-distribution#distribution-locations

https://covid.infusioncenter.org

I would call the locations ahead of time to check on supply.

He's in Las Vegas, how would I identify a location where he can get the monoclonal antibody treatment?
