Hey I understand. There are times when I extend the expiration date on my loaf of bread until I start to see green mold growing around the edges or until it starts to have that strong alcoholic yeast smell. A FDA person said to me that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is 60-65?% effective the first 2 days and then 100% effective on days 8 and 9 and 10 after that- many competitors have lied by quoting only the first 2 days effectiveness %. Are you one of those liars? How much $$$foryou?

Biden announces COVID-19 vaccine rules for federal workersBreaking: President Biden will require federal employees to wear masks, physically distance from others in the workplace and get tested regularly if they’re not willing to get vaccinated against COVID-19. We think it's time to start calling it 'immunization', rather than 'vaccination'. Less political baggage. A greater sense of invincibility.

NoVaccinePassports We have been patient with the unvaccinated, but too many lives have been lost and our patience is over. If you refuse to do the right thing for society and get vaccinated, it is time for you to return to quarantine and stay out of our society. Interact with society via twitter.

Biden announces Covid-19 vaccine incentives, mandates for federal workersPresident Biden announced new Covid-19 vaccine incentives including encouraging states to use federal funds to award unvaccinated people $100 if they get the vaccine. He also announced new Covid-19 vaccine mandates for federal workers and contractors and urged other workplaces to follow suit. Baby steps. There's so much more you could do POTUS. Ask major corporations to require vaccinations for their employees and customers. Make it mandatory for the military. Ask governors to do their part. Good deal means if you are family of 3 kids will get $500 not bad At least he is trying to get through to the dumb people

As COVID-19 renews interest in radiation, doctors caution against radon-filled minesThe pandemic has recharged that debate as clinical trials across the world test whether low doses of radiation can help treat patients with COVID-19. But radon gas isn’t the same radiation U.S. doctors use, experts caution. Get irradiated... or just get vaccinated and wear a mask. Let me guess which the maga are going to choose.

House Republicans stage protest in Capitol over new COVID-19 mask rulesA group of House Republicans marched to the Senate floor Thursday to protest the new House mask mandate imposed by the Capitol's attending physician.
