The first vaccine is fine with just a sore arm where some have had slight reaction to the 2nd vaccine. If everyone gets the first vaccine, it offers 50% protection against Covid-19 and may prevent more deaths in the United States. After receiving both vaccines of Moderna, I feel I have more energy and have a stronger immune system.

They keep talking about getting back to normal life, but I've still yet to hear anyone say how long the vaccine will provide protection. One story said it could turn into a yearly thing. Can you imagine going through this every year?

4.1% of americans fear covid and won't work. That's roughly 12.3 million people I must both of them are highly highly skilled individuals it's a drop in the bucket compared to the overall work force. I guess business is going to have to compete with $16 an hour to sit on your butt to bring workers back. It's a sad fact but that's the truth compete or get eaten.

As in Vietnam and with the Kurds;Afganistan will be turned over the enemy we fought against.Once again, the politicians will leave innocent people to the wolves without any help. This is unconscionable.

Marilyn Herbst Calvert May 5, 2021 - 8:52 AM

I have no one to care for me if I get sick off the vaccine. I’ve known people who haven’t gotten sick but those are ones that had COVID. Then people who haven’t had it got very sick and I fear if I get the J&J that I’ll be prone to the blood clots as all the woman in my family are prone to strokes and blood clots. I feel like I’m damned if I do and damed if I don’t.
My heart goes out to those in Mexico City in the subway disaster. I’m sadden by the tragedy.

Carlos Saenz May 5, 2021 - 8:52 AM

So sad and heartbroken for the families with missing or killed loved ones😞 So glad this news keeps us up to date with vaccines and Covid outbreaks. If trump gets back on Facebook I am deleting my account. I do not want to hear trump spreading lies, hate and feeding conspiracy theories again!! We need to forget him period! He has done enough damage and we as a nation are now moving forward in a positive direction finally!!!

I cannot speak for all pharmacy's, however I was able to get my 1st dose in North Central Ohio Rite Aid with several days of setting up the appointment and will receive my 2nd dose tomorrow, I was in and out in less than 15-20 minutes in which very little delay mostly for paperwork or others getting theirs…very satisfied with Rite Aid, I know other folks are not so lucky but please keep trying. Stay Safe.

The National Basketball Association, MSM and Major League Baseball have become political action committee's for President Harris and her puppet Joe Biden. In addition, the following companies (listed below) worked on Joe Biden's behalf, campaigned for Biden and other Democrats, fund raised for BLM and other far left activist organizations.

Financial Boycott whenever possible the following.

NBA/WNBA, MLB, Modelo Beer, Pacifico Beer, Sonic, Corona Beer, Wendy's, US Bank, Coca-Cola products, State Farm Insurance, The General Insurance, Nerdwallet, Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins, Best Buy, Wayfair, Kohls, Cigna, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, Microsoft, Home Depot, Vivint, Verizon, New York Times, Washington Post, All late night comedy shows, USA today, ESPN, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, TNT, TBS, TLC, PBS, OWN, Oxygen, Discovery Channel, Discovery Plus, Bloomberg, Facebook, Twitter.

Pass this on.

*Boycott any products endorsed by NBA, MLB players, leftist fund raisers Snoop Dogg (who preformed a mock execution of President Trump.), Martha Stewart, Shaquille O'Neal, Earvin "magic" Johnson, LeBron James.

*Since Black history month there is an African American on almost every commercial on television. At only 13% of the U.S. population makes you wonder? many of the companies listed above reflect this trend in television.

Tom Thelen May 5, 2021 - 9:00 AM
