Half of vaccine rejectors believe it is safe to travel now, compared to 29% of vaccinated adults

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now say it is safe for fully vaccinated Americans to travel. But those most willing to travel right now may reject much else that the CDC suggests.

 

In the latest Economist/YouGov poll, three in 10 Americans who have received at least one vaccinate shot (29%) believe it is safe for them to travel within the United States today. By contrast, half of the one in four Americans who reject the vaccine believe it is safe for them to venture out now. 

 

Half of those who reject vaccines (52%) also say it is safe for them today to socialize (compared to just 30% of all Americans). Another 45% say it is safe for them to go without a mask now. Just one in five Americans overall (21%) think it is safe to go maskless today.  

 

Many vaccine rejectors have little confidence in advice from leading national medical figures, like the CDC or Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Instead, nearly half in this group trust advice from former President Donald Trump. Only 21% of vaccine rejectors trust advice from the CDC, and just 13% trust medical advice from Dr. Fauci. 

 

For the most part, vaccine rejectors believe there is little risk to themselves from COVID-19. Half (51%) rarely (29%) or never (22%) wear a mask in public; just 29% are even somewhat worried they might contract COVID-19, and 41% are not worried at all.

New York has one of the lowest rates of vaccine hesitancy in the country. About 85% of adults in the state either plan to be vaccinated or already have, according to a recent US Census Bureau survey. The state is also vaccinating at a pace that's one of the fastest in the country, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

It almost seems like everytime a new accuser of harassment comes out against the governor or the wonderful retirement home cover up come up another group of vaccination sites open up, and more restrictions get lifted....lol...

 

Almost like he's trying to divert attention...

It will be time to reopen once everyone has gotten their shot (or at least everyone who wants it).  Only about 100+ million got at least one shot.  That leaves 200+ million who have as much protection they did in April 2020.

As long as spikes occur because people get lax about protection, be it fully vaccinated, wearing masks, and practicing social distancing, we as a nation are ****ed and we still have to use protection. 

 

Wonder if these same yahoos don't use protection against STDs because they will never get them?

COVID: Nearly 40% of Marines have declined the vaccine

 

Nearly 40% of US Marines are declining Covid-19 vaccinations, according to data provided to CNN on Friday by the service, the first branch to disclose service-wide numbers on acceptance and declination.

 

As of Thursday, approximately 75,500 Marines have received vaccines, including fully vaccinated and partially vaccinated service men and women. About 48,000 Marines have chosen not to receive vaccines, for a declination rate of 38.9%.

 

CNN has reached out to the other services for acceptance and declination rates.

 

The corresponding acceptance rate for vaccinations among Marines — 61.1% — is not far off the military estimate of two-thirds, or about 66%.

 

Another 102,000 Marines have not yet been offered the vaccines. The total number of Marines includes active-duty, reserves and Individual Mobilization Augmentee Marines.

 

The declination rate at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, one of the prominent Marine Corps bases, was far higher, at 57%, according to another set of data provided to CNN. Of 26,400 Marines who have been offered vaccinations, 15,100 have chosen not to receive them, a number that includes both II Marine Expeditionary Force and Marine Corps Installation East — Camp Lejeune. Another 11,500 active-duty Marines are scheduled to be offered the vaccines.

NYT: Florida’s governor bans agencies and businesses from requiring ‘vaccine passports.’

 

 

Quote

 

Florida has banned state and local government agencies and businesses from requiring so-called vaccine passports, or documentation proving that someone has been vaccinated against Covid-19.

 

Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, issued an executive order on Friday prohibiting businesses from requiring patrons or customers to show vaccine documentation, or risk losing grants or contracts funded by the state. It was not immediately clear how the order applied to state and local government agencies.


Requiring proof of vaccination, the order says, would “reduce individual freedom” and “harm patient privacy,” as well as “create two classes of citizens based on vaccination.”

 


I swear, the virus is making soft money contributions to the GOP.

It's time to open things after enough people have had the shots.  

 

For the people who've had the shots.  

 

And the numbers I've heard, about how many is enough, is around 80%.  Not 20.

South African variant of COVID-19 can 'break through' Pfizer vaccine, Israeli study suggests

 

The coronavirus variant discovered in South Africa can "break through" the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to some extent, a real-world data study in Israel has found, though its prevalence in the country is low and the research has not been peer-reviewed.

 

The study, released on Saturday, compared almost 400 people who had tested positive for COVID-19, 14 days or more after they received one or two doses of the vaccine, against the same number of unvaccinated patients with the disease.

 

It matched age and gender, among other characteristics.

 

The South African variant, B.1.351, was found to make up about 1 per cent of all the COVID-19 cases across all the people studied, according to the study by Tel Aviv University and Israel's largest healthcare provider, Clalit.

 

But among patients who had received two doses of the vaccine, the variant's prevalence rate was eight times higher than those unvaccinated -- 5.4 per cent versus 0.7 per cent.

 

This suggests the vaccine is less effective against the South African variant, compared with the original coronavirus and a variant first identified in Britain that has come to comprise nearly all COVID-19 cases in Israel, the researchers said.

But we’re not going to get to an 80% vaccination rate.

From everything I've been reading it seems like we'll be lucky to get 50% vaccinated. So many anti vaxxers out there it's just ridiculous. 😠
