A perspective that hit home for me..The US has now more Covid-19 deaths than battle caused deaths of US soldiers in WWII and Vietnam combined.

Received my first vaccine dose yesterday....

One difference is in those wars it was man fighting man and not an unseen force.

The similarities are a lot of government screw ups.

The death toll is extremely disheartening. We'll live with that accountability as a nation for generations.

I am listening to the Social Distance Podcast from the Atlantic and they have a very digestible episode about the new variants and implications for us (and a bit about why social measure are still needed during this phase of a vaccination campaign).

Probably wasn't the best idea to order sick covid19 positive patients to nursing homes containing our most fragile population.

But hey, on a positive note the guy who did it got an award "in recognition of his leadership"

I slept like a baby last night. I need a shot every night of that stuff and I hope you can read this.

From the sound of things, the amount of vaccines the current administration claimed to have is not exactly what they have. Hopefully Utah doesn't run out before you get your shot (pun intended) to get the vaccine. It doesn't appear we are going to get anywhere near what was expected.

I'm reading that as well. Fingers crossed we don't hit a major bottleneck for folks to get their second dose.

20k seniors signed up for the vaccine in my parents country in the first 24 hours. Hopefully them signing up at 830 am that day helps their place in that first come first serve queue.

Utah County has been taking that into account. They opened up slots on Wednesday for next week and they were gone within 5 minutes. Fortunately, I logged in at 2 minutes and barely got an appointment. They then put out a statement explaining that more slots will be opened up as confirmed vaccine becomes available.
