In the United States, 65.7% of 12+ population has at least one vaccine. Daily vaccination rates peaked April 8 (with 2.56 million people per day) and have slowly and painfully declined since (with 268,000 people on July 16). Who are the 34.3% eligible but not vaccinated?
Thank you for continuing to compile these resources; it's so helpful to have tools for the conversations. I was wondering if you have references for studies that show vaccine efficacy at preventing long COVID? That's something really concerning for my family and me.
An interesting persuasive point I read what’s “you know that most COVID deaths were in people with Pre existing conditions. If you get COVID, that will be your pre existing condition for the next pandemic”
This is fantastic. I've been looking for this kind of advice on how to effectively discuss with people the need to vaccinate. Thank you!
Sorry to keep asking, but any idea when we’ll get answers to the breastfeeding questions?
I got called to do a research study and they needed people that aren’t vaccinated yet to get the vaccine and a booster. Said sure, but I’m breastfeeding. They said they couldn’t include me in the study. And this is why I’m not vaccinated yet. Breastfeeding people have been excluded from every study as far as I know. At this rate, I guess I’ll have to get vaccinated at the same time my baby does.
Thank you for the superb posts. Do we know yet if vaccinated people getting delta breakthrough infection develop a delta specific immune bump?
What do I do if I kinda/sorta already said the wrong things to my (otherwise rational) Tucker-Carlson-loving parents? I can't figure out how to get them to separate their political feelings about "the left" from literally every statement that is made by anyone in that group. Best I've been able to do is persuade them that no, I haven't become a wild-eyed liberal socialist, I still agree with them on most things, I just evaluate each issue individually rather than applying blanket acceptance or rejection to an entire party.
I think both parents had planned to get vaccinated for the sake of my Grandmother, who was living with them; but she passed away in February during the freezing disaster. :( My other grandmother succumbed to dementia during 2020, and even though my asthma makes me high-risk, both parents consider that they no longer have any vulnerable family members for whose sake they should be vaccinated.
This despite the fact that Dad has just been diagnosed with inoperable cancer in his lymph nodes. It's slow-growing, and not causing any problems in its current location; and even when it eventually moves to his liver, he should have about 7 years left beyond that point. But any kind of cancer at all increases his risk, right? Plus Mom has asthma, and both of them are "older." (I refuse to call them old, but for the sake of accuracy, Dad is 62, and Mom will be 67 in November.) Given their risk factors and the recent local increase of the Delta variant, I'm increasingly worried about them!
