I got my first dose of the yesterday.

I got it at a CVS.

If any of you are trying to get an appointment and having trouble, you can try cvs.com.

I don't know if it will always be the case, but right now everyone who goes there is getting Moderna.

Also, here are a couple tips for navigating their site:

When you get to the point where it shows a bunch of cities, you must click in to see more options.

Do not abandon the search if all the cities seem too far away.

It's at that point that you need to click in, and it will open up more options for all the cities that have openings.

And just like other sites doing this, refreshing often will help when it seems like appointments are being added but you keep missing out on them.

They do get scooped up quickly when they drop in, and you can see that happening in real time.

This can be an uncomfortable or difficult conversation for some. It is, however, incredibly important and incredibly necessary.

I recently had my first colonoscopy. They removed polyps which I just learned were benign. (Phew)

What I wanted to share was information relayed by my doctor in his letter about the results.

"The type of polyp removed is referred to as 'adenoma.' This type of polyp, when not removed can grow larger over many years and has the potential to turn into a colon cancer."

Due to that sentence, I felt the need to do a .

@TonyStark Voting rights is the most common issue we have right now. Voters may counter the attempts at suppression by coming out to vote in large numbers, but the bills that seek to nullify the votes must be stopped.

People who can be vaccinated and refuse: you are the ones ruining the economy. Your refusal to wear masks at the beginning and to do so where you need to now along with your refusal to do the one simple thing that can make a real difference here is the actual thing that's impacting jobs and businesses' abilities to return to some semblance of normal.

For those of us who embrace science, appreciate the fine minds that work to make life safer, who isolated ourselves for 15 months, gave up holiday celebrations with family, wore our masks, made do with what we had until a vaccine was made available, and then got it, thank you.

For the others screaming "freedom", denouncing Fauci and the CDC, sniggering at the medical community, and misusing the First Amendment, you are the cause for this setback.  

You own it.

With new vaccine and mask requirements, businesses scramble to respond to delta variant and shifting health guidance"

United States of Captain America #2

Steve & Sam continue their trek across the country in search of the thieves who stole Steve's shield and are using it to wreaking havoc in his name. Their goal -destroy the symbol &everything it represents, in order to divide the nation.
In Harrisburg PA, they come across another member of the 'Captain America Network'.
Nichelle Wright, a former gymnast star who gave up a promising career to protect her underserved community. Inspired by Isaiah Bradley, she dons the suit to fight for those she sees as ignored or forgotten.
Activist by day, vigilante by night, she fights against racist cops, uncaring politicians, &bullies to make her city safe for all.
But she can't do it alone as her B-story shows. An entire support network has rallied itself around her &the symbol of America that she embodies.

An excellent follow-up to the first volume, and highly recommended!

Look for it in your LCS or read online:

My family and friends have ALL done our part without any of the incessant whining…masked up, distanced, and first to put up our hands to get vaccinated. We’re fully vaccinated and ready to get on with life.

I and everyone I know are so freaking tired of these idiotic morons who refuse.

It's absurd& tiresome to be at the mercy of these fools who refuse to vaccinate. The rest of us have all done our part, and these anti-vaxxers are holding us back whilst screaming their latest mashup of politicalized disinfo.

I just tried to talk to a co-worker yesterday who still swears (despite all the evidence I showed her on the CDC& WHO websites) that the vaccination contains live virus& you can catch C-19 from the shot. (It doesn't, you can't)

Granted this is the same girl who swears that applewood bacon is vegetarian because it's made with apples, so you see what I'm up against. huge facepalm

Everyone who voted for DeSantis should absolutely be ashamed. The rest have every right to be angry.
At this rate. Florida would be better off voting LokiGator into the Govonership.

Forcing people to take public health measures is not the way epidemiologists want to go about it. But when the alternative is millions of deaths, better that business are requiring vaccines for employees and customers than letting infections spread.

(No one is holding you down and sticking a needle in your arm. Rather, you won't be allowed to do the things you want to do, like go to a restaurant, without presenting your vaccination card. Or work in a particular job without proof of vaccine, or possibly a test every 48 hours. Do you like that swab up your nose?)

The unvaccinated may stay at home indefinitely. No shopping, no dining out, no entertainments at outside venues, no sporting events. Only allow accommodations for medically necessary reasons. 

We can work around the people who can't be vaccinated and protect them.

The refusers can take tests, get a 2-second shot, or stay home.

People in any store I will go to have to wear masks unless they're vaccinated.

I was surprised how many young employees in Trader Joe’s were wearing masks on Friday. Knowing this, I asked the employee at the checkout if he was vaccinated.

He was taken back. I’m ok with that. I can ask about your vaccine status. He said no. I asked why not? He said he didn’t have time to get it. I pointed to the Walgreens right across the street that my whole family got vaccinated at and let him know it’s literally right across the street, you can walk in, and it's free. I told him the story of my friend who died. I told him about the young employees who worked for my clients who couldn’t go back to work because they got so sick 8 months ago and have long lasting symptoms.

2 stores near me mandated vaccines for employees this weekend. Those are the only 2 places I'm going to go. More will follow. That's how it is going to play out.

That's grassroots right there! Thank you for taking considerate and friendly action. If that employee gets his vaccination you may have very well saved theirs and more lives down the line.

MARCH was an amazing and inspiring series, and I'm eagerly looking forward to the sequel RUN, from the late, great, Rep John Lewis.

First you MARCH, and then you RUN

John Lewis finished this graphic memoir as he died. He wanted to leave a civil rights ‘road map’ for generations to come.
