3.34 million doses a day pace and 192 million doses given in the USA! Get err done!
This is all good news, by any standard, thanks for the reminder.

We'll have to deal with the 'Clingers' crowd for awhile longer, clearly. By 'Clingers', I mean what I've said for awhile now. They'll cling to the 'we've got X number of cases!' message, while completely ignoring the hospitalization rates & death rates for these cases.

Also, as I've said earlier, they'll be with us for awhile & we'll have to deal with them & their hysteria.

****cue, all the others who will tell us that we don't know what we know, but also swear Fauci's word is God since his 'intentions were noble.' (insert wartime Generals here)

We will pass the millstone number of 200 Million doses given in the USA this week, even with J.J. paused. The world has given about 814 Million doses, with Israel, USA, UK, UAE, and several smaller island nations leading the way in terms of percentage of people with shots in arms. In shear numbers of vaccine given the USA leads the way with China right behind and India following them...then the UK, the EU (as a whole), and Brazil, then Turkey followed by Germany, Indonesia, France, Italy to make out the rest of the top 10 . We are going to get to a point quickly where we need to help the rest of the world on a larger scale. This will be key to opening up business and international travel more completely, and, of course, to limit the spread, reduce hospitalization and death from the virus.

Context is key here gang.
Thanks a lot for making me watch 2 minutes of Tucker Carlson in order to have context. It didn’t change my mind. I’m not sure what context you want us to have. Do you find the tweet above to be misleading? If so, maybe you should stop speaking in vague statements that give... no context.

I'm not 100% on the legality of this. Can venues deny you access for medical decisions you've made (even if they are bad ones)? What about ones out of your control?
Yep. Anyone in a medical profession can attest to having to show vaccination (and even sufficient antibody) status in order to work or go to school. You might run into issues with ADA and whether there are "reasonable" accommodations, but especially with everyone expecting vaccines to be fully authorized this summer, there's a good chance this will be able to stand.

Why don’t you spare us and give the context here instead?
I have not seen the Tucker piece, but I bet I can guess the context based on knowledge of Tucker and CNN.

Tucker probably said something snide about government officials must not trust the vaccine if they are still supporting mask mandates and telling people not to do normal things like go out to dinner.

CNN then took one small sound bite to make it look like Tucker thinks vaccines don’t work. @Duke Silver - was I close?

Almost exactly. Except the ones that said what he is blamed for saying was Justin Trudeau. And then faucis
