Where did you read 90%? It looks like the low 60s according to the trackers.

Sorry...adult population. Just using the tweet Deace quoted.

I'll add that I have no idea what the numbers officially are...but I'm sure that moron Steve Douche 100% doesn't know how to interpret statistics.

But 90% of the population is fully vaccinated. Round their population up to 10 mill for easy math and that's 9 million vaxxed versus 1 million unvaxxed...i.e. 209 out of 9 million versus 115 out of 1 million.

I think that is just eligible adults. It's like 60% of the total population, I think.

There are plenty of unvaccinated people in Israel, but they are mostly young. The situation with the breakthrough cases is far worse than is being tracked or admitted in this country.

 

yup they unmasked and let her rip. now they look like Amerika

Was splitting wood from a pile of wood I bucked two years ago, biggest spiders I've ever seen, big brown wolf spiders, Wiz's nightmare, also ran into a hornets nest so had to call it a day.

Yikes, hate when that happens. Been pretty good up north so far, not many spiders.

More ticks than I have ever seen though.

Ticks here too, no centipedes this year but plenty of spiders even inside the house, I think centipedes eat spiders so maybe that's a good sign, spiders do have their use other than to scare the crap out of Wiz.

I posted that a few months ago, seems like each year in MD we have either house centipedes or wolf spiders, never both at the same time. It goes back and forth each year. They are mortal blood enemies from what I understand. No overlap between their territories inside the walls. A 300 million year old struggle I guess, from back when they were each 5 feet long. LOL

It will be fun trying to explain proportions to the American public when our percentage of hospitalized vaccinated starts going up.  For now though, we may be benefiting from a somewhat later ramp up of the vaccination campaign than Israel (meaning the vaccine hasn't worn off as much in our initial round of people) and we also have a more sizable pool of unvaccinated for delta to feast on, thus making the unvaccinated overwhelmingly dominate the hospital percentages.

I also read somewhere that some other countries tend to be more liberal with hospitalizing people, so that is something to keep in mind when comparing countries.  Some of the vaccinated in hospitals in other countries may not really need to be there.

Do you have a source for hospitalization and death data by vaccination status in this country? Israel seems to be a lot more open with this than we are...

I agree that they are about 2 months "ahead" of us with this. I expect October and November to get pretty hysterical in this country as vaccinated people start showing up more strongly in the severe outcome statistics, even if we try to whitewash it like we are now.

You seem to be borderline happy that vaccinated people are getting infected... the sack fungus/ball rot discussion in the August Disco continues to be more entertaining and interesting than COVID talk here in banter.  Yet it continues...

There is a thread in OT where people are taking bets on which poster here will get sick and die first. Maybe go tell them how that makes you feel?

I don't feel the need because I don't even know what OT is.  If it's outside the New England section I don't bother with it.  But feel free to let them know bristolri_wx thinks it's shitty that's what they are discussing while you're there...

He’s obsessed with the vaccine being a failure.

Hiked the volcano   Pretty epic if not as good as May.  Long walk up and down.  Got a flat after leaving.  Rental car had baloney skins on the wheels so not surprised. 
 

After cleaning up at the hotel had a decent lamb burger at an over priced outdoor restaurant.  People watching in Reykjavik is interesting. 
 

Walking around the city we saw this :

another restaurant    Figured some would enjoy it.   Carry on with the silliness

I don't.  The stuff I come across tends to be about an individual state or hospital, but it's pretty much always 90%+ in the hospital are unvaccinated, and sometimes it's closer to 100%

I think Israel recently reported that vaccine efficacy was down to like 17% in people who received it in January.  Would be important to find out if is that an age thing or if it tends to wear off at a similar rate across age groups.  The good news is that the vaccines are still holding up well against severe disease on a percentage basis.  But if more vaccinated people are getting sick to begin with, the numbers with severe illness are going to rise even if the % efficacy against severe illness never went down.
