    RIP Roger Hawkins, legendary drummer for the Swampers/Muscle Shoals. The list of stuff he played on is stunning.

    I don't know if this is in bad taste to speculate about, but when I hear that someone at this point just died from COVID at the age of 66...
    Did they get the vaccine when it was readily available? It has been very easy to get in this country if you're over the age of 65 for a couple months now?

    So, I just really wonder, and at this point I think it's somewhat vital to the discussion, and the article/obituary doesn't mention the word "vaccine." Maybe he was immunocompromised? I don't know, all this stuff is kind of important to a larger and much more important discussion, where there's so many people holding out on getting the vaccine and raising conspiracies and bullshit.

    the vaccine is only 90% effective. that 10% means there’s still a chance of getting it.

    Yes, but that’s only a vulnerability if you do directly become exposed to the virus, and most reports I’m reading suggest that if you’ve been inoculated, even if you do catch it, the symptoms SHOULD be less severe. I think?

    I guess I’m just curious here but really it’s not my business. I’ve spent so much pointless time arguing with anti-vaccine/mask people lately, and they keep referring to cases that defy what scientists and medical professionals are suggesting... and maybe I just feel like this is a time sensitive crisis, and when I hear about an elderly person catching and dying from it at this point, I wish I knew if he was vaccinated, and if there were serious contributing factors.

    though yes, I know it’s possible to happen regardless, my friend’s relative died of it after being fully vaccinated... and that’s a raw, personal thing, so of course I’m not going to press for any details there... but I would like to know about “the Milli Vanilli guy”

    It actually doesn’t mean that. It’s complicated, but it doesn’t mean that.

    It means that vaccinated people had a 90% lower chance than non-vaccinated people in a control group during initial clinical trials.

    The actual percentage of vaccinated people in the Pfizer and Moderna trials who got Covid was 0.04%.

    Agreed. Efficacy with Pfizer and Moderna vaccines is difficult to explain.
    On the flip side, we do know that people who are unvaccinated are getting COVID at the rate the general population was in January, before the vaccine roll out really got underway.

    I have idiots in my office who think they don't need the vaccine, and I'm basically tell them they're a ticking time bomb, and back off 6 ft thank you very much.

    I’m still amazed by the near perfect timing of all this and Fear Inoculum.
