  1. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/covid-vaccine-johnson-and-johnson-effective-single-dose-fda/ One dose vaccine. "The Food and Drug Administration's scientists confirmed that overall the vaccine is about 66% effective at preventing moderate to severe COVID-19. The agency also said J&J's shot — one that could help speed vaccinations by requiring just one dose instead of two — is safe to use."

  4. https://www.deseret.com/u-s-world/2021/2/20/22289211/common-covid-19-side-effects Side effect article. Thirty-six cases of a rare blood disorder. Most side effects minor. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/08/health/immune-thrombocytopenia-covid-vaccine-blood.html
  5. My 24-year-old school teacher niece got her 2nd shot Saturday. She got very ill. Stayed in bed over 24 hours, fever and body aches. Her 90 year old grandpa had a sore arm. I wonder if she had covid previously and did not know it?

  7. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/01/health/have-you-had-covid-19-coronavirus.html A new study may explain why Dr. Romano and many others who have had Covid report these unexpectedly intense reactions to the first shot of a vaccine. In a study posted online on Monday, researchers found that people who had previously been infected with the virus reported fatigue, headache, chills, fever, and muscle and joint pain after the first shot more frequently than did those who had never been infected. Covid survivors also had far higher antibody levels after both the first and second doses of the vac

  9. https://komonews.com/amp/news/nation-world/questions-arise-over-cdc-guidance-on-covid-19-vaccines There is no evidence that previously infected people should get the vaccine. It makes sense to vaccinate others first.
  10. Some where n-95 masks with a vent and use a regular mask to cover the vent.
  11. "To better understand immune memory of SARS-CoV-2, researchers led by Drs. Daniela Weiskopf, Alessandro Sette, and Shane Crotty from the La Jolla Institute for Immunology analyzed immune cells and antibodies from almost 200 people who had been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 and recovered. Time since infection ranged from six days after symptom onset to eight months later. More than 40 participants had been recovered for more than six months before the study began. About 50 people provided blood samples at more than one time after infection. The research was funded in part by NIH’s National In

  13. https://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/national/coronavirus/who-issues-recommendations-for-moderna-vaccine-including-guidance-for-pregnant-women?_amp=true&__twitter_impression=true Don’t get Moderna if pregnant unless high risk of infection.
  14. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-9184631/Heavy-smokers-face-nearly-DOUBLE-risk-dying-COVID-19-compared-people-never-smoked.html This could explain Utah’s lower than average death rates.
  15. I was happy I watched that one at home. I added sub titles and could rewind.
  16. This article came out today. Clark County wants to open schools ASAP as the suicide rate doubles. I know in my county, there have been no covid deaths for anyone under 40 but we have had suicides. Elementary school is in session but middle school and high school has been home since November. Charter schools are in session but not public schools. In Chicago, upper grades have been out of school since March. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/24/us/politics/student-suicides-nevada-coronavirus.html And in Chicago, teachers vote not to return. https://apnews.com/article/us-news-teachin
  17. These are all good questions. All the data should be carefully studied. A German judge thought, based on the statistics, lockdowns went too far. http://enformtk.u-aizu.ac.jp/howard/weimar_ruling/ This is not to say all precautions should go (masks,social distancing) but all the consequences of preventions should be waged against the costs.
  18. Early treatment info. Antibody treatments. They’re free. For older/high risk patients. Again, advocated for them early. https://www.wsj.com/articles/regenerons-antibody-miracle-for-covid-19-11611270897 https://www.inquirer.com/health/coronavirus/monoclonal-antibodies-can-help-high-risk-people-with-covid-19-getting-drug-patients-remains-challenging-20210124.html

  20. I posted this when it was published during the summer. PCR tests at 40 cycles are ridiculous.
  21. Coming soon to this country. It’s just a matter of time. Scientifically, this does make sense. N95 masks required in Germany. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/live-blog/2021-01-20-covid-live-updates-vaccine-news-n1254842/ncrd1254848#blogHeader
