    I expect to get my second shot in about two weeks. I'm "in the system" and they'll text me when it's my turn again. Still mostly keeping to ourselves here, up to my eyeballs in "COVID projects" around the house.

    Why?

    We have a friend who refuses to be vaccinated. I tell him copulations. Youl will be the last one locally to die of covid-19. [/I]

    I think you might have meant "congratulations"...

    I will get my second shot in about 6 weeks. Like almost all over 60's here I am only able to get the AstraZeneca vaccine and there is a 'prescribed' waiting period of 12 weeks between the two shots.

    That makes sense. I wasn’t quite sure what it was supposed to be.

    No upside to saying this. Either he will die of COVID, or (most likely), he won’t. If he doesn’t, he’ll rub your words in your face. If he does, you won’t be able to do I-told-you-so.

    Probability in the high 90%s that your friend is going to be telling you, see, I told you, it’s no big deal.

    Fully vaccinated. Still cautious because I live with two adults with asthma, one of them elderly and immune-compromised, and two kids. One kid has had two shots but is waiting on two weeks, one has had one shot waiting on the second.

    Fully vaccinated, but the kids can't be yet.

    Do people have to pay for these in some countries?

    At least where I am, it is free (well, government-funded, obviously someone pays for it), but I'm not sure if that is the case everywhere.

    The choices presented in the poll had me a bit undecided. I'm fully vaccinated but I also know beer cures everything. I chose to select the former.

    Publicly funded here (Canada).

    Thankful Covid vaccine and beer are not incompatible.

    In some states they are linked by giveaways.

    I just missed that with my second shot. I'm really torn on that. Waiting vs free beer. I generally don't drink beer, but I really liked the idea of going to a bar in the first time in forever.

    I got 10% off grocery coupons for getting injected at a supermarket. I think it specifically exempted alcoholic beverages.

    I had the same thought, and ultimately made the same choice.

    Bars here have been closed for over a year, although many "bars" have now obtained restaurant licenses. It's hard for me to tell the difference as a customer. Well, except for the fact that, if they're open, they must be a restaurant now.

    The poll responses are not representative of the situation in any country I am familiar with, so I think we might have some self-selection bias.

    Either in which people join the board, or which choose to respond. Or both.

    Both, I'd guess. I posted the same poll on my other forum with similar results, although there's one "waiting, concerned about safety" vote there. That forum has multiple Covid deniers and anti-vaxxers who make themselves known in other threads. But they haven't shown up in the poll.

    The situation in east Asia has been, most of the countries have kept things under control enough that a lot of people don't see the need - why get vaccinated, if we don't have the disease here? But recent outbreaks in a lot of countries are causing something of a rethink.

    In Hong Kong last month, they were saying they'd have to throw out millions of doses of Pfizer vaccine because not enough people want to get it, and the expiry dates are approaching. I don't know if that situation has been resolved. Better to sell it, or even give it away, to some other country, than to throw it away if you ask me. We're still in the early stages, I'd say there are more people who want vaccine and can't get it, than batches of vaccine sitting around because no one wants it.

    We had that here for a little bit. For a hot second, the governor decided that chicken wings were not food for the purposes of serving booze. I'm not sure how long that lasted. Probably a couple of minutes. As I understand it, the "clarificantion" came by twitter moments after that pronouncement had been made.

    In Texas, if the establishment serves alcohol and food, and makes 51% of its income from the food, it's a restaurant.

    Texas also has laws prohibiting restaurants and bars from selling alcoholic drinks for off-premises consumption*. Those laws were relaxed when the pandemic made take-out and delivery the only choices. They still haven't been reinstated and may not be. Too much potential income.

    * It's interesting (to me) that bars and restaurants must use glass containers that are not easy to carry out, but sports venues must use plastic containers so they cause less damage when thrown onto the playing surface or at a player. (Okay, that last isn't the only or stated reason.)

    Our state is offering giveaways if we get the vaccine, and I'm hoping like anything that all the big prizes go to people who got it months ago because it's the right thing to do, not people who thought, "Sure, I'll do it for a chance at a million dollars."
