Canadian federal government just mandated vaccines for all the private firms under its jurisdiction.   The notable examples are the telecom and banking sectors.

These are critical, strategically important sectors for the economy.  So yeah.... I support the move.

Then I must not be a right winger because I really like CS&N and even Y (sometimes).

I feel so much better knowing this.

No.  Not at all.  I bet that you are nicer than many of us.  

Doesn't mean we still have to  like or support your politics.

Interesting because at the beginning of this I thought acetylcholinesterase receptor differences played into this. (For instance, ACE inhibitors work less well in the Black population so they're not the best starting point for antihypertensives.)
 
Moving on speaking of receptor differences. 

I just recently heard that one of the shortcomings of the Western mrna types of vaccines for CV is that they are only designed or capable of dealing with a few types of the protein receptors spikes of the SARs - 2 virus.  Ironically the more traditional Chinese vaccine with a lower efficacy rate may be better in the long run because it deals with a much wider variety of the various protein receptors and with that, better suited to deal with new mutations.

I am recalling this from an interview I heard a few days ago. I do not know enough about the subject to say one way or the other.  Just throwing it out there for consideration by the more learned.

It was a good point.    Black American health outcomes ARE a factor in this pandemic.

The lady took a test (over the previous weekend ?) that came back negative.  She worked Monday was barely able to function, came in Tuesday when I worked with her, said she was feeling better (a little bit) but by the end of the day she had one of the most profound coughs I have ever heard.  Took off Thursday and Friday and we got word today, Saturday, that she was hospitalized with CV.  So by Monday 6 days will have passed.  She was vaccinated, J & J, but not sure.  She is black, mid 50's and relatively healthy overall.

I am doing the coffee can sniff test.  As long as I can still smell it, I will remain optimistic. As with the last exposure, both the wife and I will be tested.  The wife is Moderna X 3.  I'm Moderna X 2.

So... Now you're saying vaccines do work? Iirc you were also saying that masks don't work but I'm guessing you still wear one in public. Are you down on social distancing as well?

You also seem to blame Biden for his handling of Covid but 

Somehow

forget that Trump's lies, incompetence and politicization of Covid greatly contributed to our current pandemic problems.

Thank you.  Got a test scheduled @ CVS for Monday at 7.30 pm. Soonest available.
Exposure to symptoms, typically 3-5 days.
Exposure to valid test, typically 5-7 days. You can do one sooner, but you might not be expressing enough virus for the Qtip to find it.
My sister got sick with a negative test which was positive two days later.
