– DISCUSSION of either arm for vaccination. Most folks want the vaccination in their less dominate arm.
– QUESTIONS FROM “JOEY PALS”.
1. “Maturing and Robust” for traveling. (Yes, because of single shot, different refrigeration). TAKE THE VACCINE THAT IS IN FRONT OF YOU. NO ONE has DIED from the Vaccines.
– REPORT that the vaccines are very effective against the variants of the virus. The variant B117 is more lethal and easier to transmit, SO GET VACCINATED.
These variants are becoming the DOMINATE virus. More lethal IF you get one of these and easier to transmit.
2. 72% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients were obese. (March 15 – tier of 16 to 64 if you have a chronic/co-morbid condition, you are open to get a vaccine. SIGN UP @ WWW.MYTURN.CA.GOV)
