Did I say they were the same thing? No.  I was pointing out my area is doing a good job controlling the spread and updating others w/ latest IFR from CDC.  

Why not include the price of gas along with the other unrelated figures  to provide even more disjointed perspective?

Where my mother in law lives has done a fabulous job.  She lives in an Erickson Community which is mostly independent living but they do have long term and memory care as well as assisted living.  The only part of the community that takes medicare is the rehab/long term care section and that's where they've had the vast majority of cases.  25 in the extended care, 45 staff (they're hands on so it's to be expected) and 2 in independent living.  12 deaths total and they were all patients in the long term care and not all were residents before Covid.  Some were transferred there after they got sick by their families.  Just like in our county where almost 70% of deaths were in the 80+ age group and in long term care facilities. 

 

Most everyone living there because it's on their own dime are very well educated. A lot of retired Dr's, military officers, etc.  They pretty much all want the vaccine and have been asking how soon they can get it.  Most of them lived through things like polio and have a different perspective than some 40 year old who never had to worry about it.

 

Your statement caused me to remember something my 91 year old father recently said.  We were out for a drs appoint, he wanted to go to the bank (lobby closed, long line at the drive up), and he needed some groceries (which I normally bring into him to limit his exposure).  He mentioned he needed paper products (TP, paper towels, etc,), and soup.  I explained to him that I needed to know the 'grocery things' in advance because there were limits and shortages.  He was quiet for a moment and then said "This is like when we were at war." 

 

I guess, in a way, we are.

Been listening to the Senate about covid going on now. 46 distribution centers told to have their plans by oct 16, not just distribution, but cold storage required. 50 states, so some states have to drive to another state?

 

Only 13% say they will get a vaccination right away. 23% say never.

I put 91 octane in my A6 .  i dont know what it costs because i never look .

I think 87  is 99 cents a liter . They always put the cheapest gas price on their sign.

The way i figure , if i need gas i buy it , dont really have much of a choice if i want to drive.

Hope this clears things up a little .

Johnson and Johnson's vaccine doesn't required cold storage, just refrigeration and appears to only need one shot.  Never is the 23%'s problem.  You do not need 100% of people vaccinated for herd immunity but it does make a difference as has been proven by every other vaccine out there and the anti-vaxxers, which is why things like whooping cough still exists.  Problem is, babies who get whooping cough get very very sick.

I am NOT an anti-vaccine person. 

I have a biochem background and have worked in the medical field, critical care.

I will NOT get any rushed vaccine, ever. I am not willing to be part of a test group for anything fast-tracked. 

That said, when a proven vaccine, a safe vaccine is available then YES I will get one. 

NOT being political but am standing with science on this one. 

And to all those earlier posters that said something about the numbers.

Every number is someone's family member. Every number is one too many. 

ALL of us need to do whatever we can to help get this "thing" under control.

Everyone stay safe and I hope to see you on ship soon.

Feel the same way. I can stay safe in the meantime wearing my mask and social distancing. 

I don’t see how it could be required. Would RCI assume the liability for adverse effects?

Why would they be liable for anything. It's a voluntary action on your part.

No, just like they have rules about smoking and don't assume the liability for its adverse effects.

If they require it to cruise it’s not voluntary. Unlike a mask a vaccine could wreck havoc with your body. If they require it after I’ve already booked my cruise I would expect a full refund. Since they have changed the passage rules.

Cruising is a privilege not a right.  If you chose to cruise you are assuming the risk that is inherent with any travel.  If Royal (or any cruise line) requires a COVID test the guest will have the option of having the test and cruising or taking a refund/FCC. 

 

It is the same as when a hurricane is in the area of a cruise.  The guest assumes the risk that they might have to sail through a hurricane and the danger that may involve.  If you chose not to go on a potential hurricane cruise, then most cruise lines will offer a refund.

 

It is the guest who will make the decision concerning what is right for them physically and mentally.

Sorry, but boarding the ship is voluntary

 

Case dismissed.

 

Your new point is a totally different matter

The vaccines may not have the 80% efficacy needed to extinguish the pandemic. It's been reported that these vaccines will only provide a 50-65% efficacy. FDA said the minimum for approval is 50%. If the vaccines only provide 50%-60% efficacy we will still have to maintain the same covid prevention protocols such as social distancing and wearing masks. Personally I would get a vaccine but I think it's been promoted as a magic cure and it will definitely not be that.
