Europeans on average have been more hesitant to get the vaccine than Americans as well. 

Cant blame them either. AstraZeneca isn’t held in high regard in the EU. Not mention the tribalism between nations in Europe. The lack of trust is thousands of years in the making.

I’ve thrown out all my masks, this is eradicated in my opinion, anybody that is high risk has been vaccinated so it’s no worse than a common cold now.

I have a mask for every holiday

I think they undoubtedly lower cases in the immediate term. My problem with them thus far has been the moving target purgatory that follows the lockdown. As in, let’s use lockdowns to actually target hotspots and prepare emergency responses for the case load and then get as open as we can. Because I also think it’s pretty obvious the half open half closed stuff doesn’t do anything to actually slow anything down.

It will allow for the hospitals to not be overwhelmed. Yes its taking longer but if hospitals don't get overwhelmed, less people die.

WGN TV, with over 1.1 million Facebook followers, showing exactly how NOT to communicate what was genuinely great news from the late stage Pfizer study. The takeaway is that the vaccine is 91% effective in preventing infection for at least 6 months, 100% effective against severe disease, and even appears to work against the South African variant. The headline makes it seem like the vaccine only works for up to six months and encourages a negative takeaway, such as that we're going to need to get vaccinated every 6 months, a common reply on the absolute shitshow comment thread.

The media is generally terrible at communicating scientific information to non-scientists. When we're in the middle of working toward herd immunity in part by trying to reduce lingering vaccine skepticism, they need to do better. They need to understand that absence of evidence (effectiveness beyond 6 months in this case) does not mean that the evidence won't exist when more data becomes available. 08911c3a47df231d573d9ba5fb75f4f9.jpg

The mask thing I’ll never ever ever understand for the anger and reactions they create. I understand completely the lockdown opposition and even the vaccine resistance to some extent....but the sh*t fit some threw over wearing a mask some places in public is just beyond parody.

The way I understand it, that subset of the population views masks as being mandated for “compliance” rather than for public health, and so wearing a mask “takes away their freedom.” By no means do I agree with this, and I think it’s asinine, but that’s what it seems to boil down to.
 

The compliance thing breaks down a little when they say “masks are about compliance, not health” one day and “if George Floyd would have done what those officers told him to do, he’d be alive today” the next, so it seems like they want to be able to pick and choose when you have to comply with the government. (For the record, I would say you should comply in both situations, though non-compliance in either situation shouldn’t be punishable by death.)

Europe has more vaccine hesitancy in general for all vaccines. It was apparent before covid.

SNE had one but a certain person from the Mid Atlantic subforum kept popping up in there and ruined it.

Anyone who has known him for years knows you aren't getting anything of substance from Metfan, we don't need empty dumb posts in here. We already get enough from uneducated Ohio posters.

Europe’s vaccination rollout has been laughable. I count my blessings that Im a US citizen. 
 
I spoke with my physician earlier this week about getting the vaccine or not. I had C19 back in NOV and I called to ask if it’s appropriate to wait, or immediately get vaccinated...the answer was interesting. He recommended the J&J vaccine after 9 full months after C19 infection. 

There’s more than one reason to be thankful we live in this great country
