No, what I'm angry about is that USA Today thinks it's valuable enough to paywall content.

Not as bad as the other day when I wanted to read a single story in the Chagrin Valley Times from 2017 and the only way to do so was to purchase a $47 year long subscription.

Fauci was wrong on the AIDS epidemic and now is proven to be less than truthful about Covid-19.

Fauci is a typical politician. Make sure he covers himself at all costs. Creates a need for his job and defends it at all costs. Lies cheats and steals and is an overall untrustworthy.

I think it's pretty clever that CBuzz doesn't allow you to duplicate posts.

Thank God we have anonymous nobodies with no scientific credentials at all to set the record straight.

Are talking about the posters, the Trump administration, or Fox News?

I mean after the correction I made this is basically me at every job I have ever had. I don't see a problem with it.

The CDC announced Thursday that it will have an "emergency meeting" of its advisers on June 18th to discuss rare but higher-than-expected reports of heart inflammation following doses of the mRNA-based vaccines in young men:

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/evidence-grows-stronger-...s-n1270339

So yesterday I was having some weird chest pains (I got dose #2 the day before), so seeing this got me a little paranoid this morning! For my situation, it lasted about an hour or so, the pain was primarily focused on the side of my chest opposite of my heart. But it also felt more like the muscles around my rib cage, especially in my back as that is a mess to begin with. Since I was laying around all day in weird positions since I’m battling through the side effects, I’m thinking now it was just weird posture/position and the generic muscle soreness. But it still was a bit freaky. If it got any worse I was ready to head into the hospital, though.

My thinking is that it was just probably the peak of my side effects (chills, soreness, etc...). Thankfully once it settled, all has been good… But seeing these reports (even as rare as they are) got me a little freaked out! (Just turned 33, so just out of the concerned age range for this side effect).

Of course, if anything else comes up I will be talking with my doctor... I felt fine otherwise (no shortness of breath and my pulse/blood pressure was fine which I checked with my at-home cuff). But overall, my side effects on #2 were a bit more mild but def had a mild fever, chills, soreness, etc... But can’t say the same for the girlfriend who is on day #2 of full blown flu like symptoms and is completely knocking her out. Hoping she breaks from it today.

There are 226 reports out of 165 million vaccinations. I understand the desire to look into it, but causation seems like a real stretch.

Especially considering that Myocarditis can occur with any viral infection.

I honestly hadn't realized this thread has been inactive for two and a half weeks. That said, I thought I'd throw this one out to see if anyone here is scaling back any sort of reentry to the world.

The WHO is making that recommendation because most of the world hasn't had wide vaccine distribution, but it haven't seen conclusive science indicating that vaccinated people are getting Delta or acting as a transmission vector. If it's more contagious, it will logically spread more among the unvaccinated.

Australia isn't well vaccinated, but beat the pandemic down with strict lockdowns. Now they're seeing a little community spread and locking down again to avoid undoing everything they worked for.

My concern is still what it has been, that the under-12 cohort is still vulnerable, and the 1 in 3 adults holding out are not helping. It's infuriating. The good news is that emerging research shows vaccines are practically a guaranteed win, if we would just do the ****ing work.

I have read similar reports from India (Delta variant and those getting it that are fully vaccinated). Still better than not, but still concerning to a degree that if this thing continues to build that things could take a step backwards.

Well, I guess I am not scaling back in that I just planned a trip to Great Adventure next week. My friend is if anything more paranoid than I am, so we'll see how things feel when we're there. Being outdoors in the park or on a ride certainly will not be an issue for me; standing in a crowded queue ...?

I've heard anecdotal reports of vaxxed people getting the Delta variant; I've also heard anecdotal reports that the symptoms were one day feeling miserable and not, you know, death.
