The Canadian Press is reporting that "British Columbia is rescinding its policy requiring provincial public servants to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as it announces a spring booster program that will focus on the elderly and vulnerable." Finally!!! I told you that was a realistic expectation after bringing Deena Hinshaw on board.
I had to go into the hospital recently for a scheduled medical procedure. The admitting nurse asked me the million admission questions. Do you have this? Have you ever had that? After answering all the questions she finally asked what is your vaccination status and I just froze. She could sense my hesitation. I said I have all my vaccinations except for Covid. She said that's OK. That's your choice and I breathed a sigh of relief. Up until now it wasn't her coworkers choice.
The vaccine requirement at the US border finally ends May 11th. Do the math here. Florida and Texas got rid of masks and mandates and the sky didn't fall. That forced everyone else to follow suit.
November 17th the Republicans took control of the House, then they voted to lift the vaccine requirement at the border. We all know who to thank. "The vote was 227 to 201 with seven Democrats joining Republicans. No Republicans voted against the bill."
Meanwhile back on the ranch, BC Health Officials are not advising the spring booster for the general population because it does more harm than good. Spring booster. Who the hell gets a flu shot in the spring?
Omicron was less severe than the seasonal flu. When viruses mutate they get weaker not stronger. There is no such thing as asystematic transmission. If you don't have symptoms, you don't have the virus even if the bogus PCR test said you did. You need symptoms AND a positive test for it to be considered a case. During the pandemic overall death rates did not rise. They didn't start to rise until after the vaccine roll out. Lest we forget.
