I saw where Ford bought refrigerated units and a bunch of vaccine doses to vaccinate their own employees. I wonder how many other companies will do this to get their employees vaccinated faster than the general public. It's almost like jumping the line so their employees are first.

I wonder if the TV companies have done this already or enrolled the main cast members in vaccine trials but spread a bit of money about to ensure they get the vaccine not the placebo. I have noticed half the cast of SVU are not wearing masks or only wearing them in hospital or public settings at least and there is not a mask in the sight on the blacklist.

Since children were not part of the initial test groups (some teenagers were), the CDC has said that vaccinations for them will likely not be available until 2022.  So, wearing a mask and the other safety protocols will probably be required for a long time.

12 and up were included in the study so they should be able to get the vaccine.
 

As for mask wearing who knows.  I do suspect that they will be needed in some places, such as visits to long term care to protect the residents.

Their return to work agreement is below. Actors are confined to bubbles and/or tested at least 3 times a week and are obligated to follow certain protocols on and off set. That bein said, actors are currently included as "essential workers" in light of Gov. Newsom's stay-at-home order, which my be eliminated if COVID spikes further in California, shutting down CA-based productions.

I may have already.  I am participating in Phase III vaccine clinical trial for Moderna vaccine.  I don't know if I got the real deal or the placebo.  They will not let me know until the conclusion of my trial cohort.  I got moderate site pain and very mild body aches with the first (August), and basically no side effects from the second (October).  Still going to clinic for blood draws.  So, if I got the real deal, I am all set.  If not, I am in healthcare and in the group who are scheduled to get it in the first rounds.  No, I don't think I was also injected with micro chip or RF antenna as my cell phone reception still stinks.

There is no way to know long term side effects to so early on.

 

Forget the long term. When will people begin to understand that any long term effects of a vaccine with with 95% efficacy, with no serious reactions in hundreds of thousands of volunteers, let alone no deaths, far, far, outweigh the definite short term effects of 𝘯𝘰𝘵 taking a vaccine for a disease with such horrifying, extreme, harrowing effects, and certainly including hundreds of thousands more deaths, disease, and poverty - if not for yourself, others around you, and around the world. The extraordinary benefits completely eclipse ANY possible negative.

 

Might I also add that volunteer test results from these vaccine trials have been more successful than any other in history, except for the Chicken Pox vaccine - coincidentally another very recently developed vaccine.

 

It is SAFE people.

The vaccine will save lives and allow a slow resumption of normalcy.


I will add to that it is vaccination that will eventually allow resumption of cruising. Those who resist getting  vaccinated are delaying the return of normalcy and cruising.

Thanks for your informative post.  We will get the vaccine as soon as we can.

SNL still going on.  Guess they are considered more essential than restaurants in NYC.

 Perhaps it is time the people in New York learn to cook their own dinners.

 

Does anyone even live there anymore? Hasn't everyone who wasn't born there - but moved there after college or when they 18 or whatever to chase their dreams - moved away now?. Being serious now a large amount of people have moved away haven't they like millions and the streets are deserted like I am legend aren't they?

Not sure I don't live there.   I know they pay a lot of $$$ to live there and it doesn't seem their overlords spend their tax dollars well.  Crime is up, that is indisputable.  So I wouldn't blame them to move out to the burbs. 

 

I enjoy visiting NYC for business, its a very magical place.  Would never want to live there though!

Yes it is up. Crime has been much higher in the past to be fair. Not even in the 90s. When I lived there in 06 there 500 murders a year easy. That is compared to 300 ever year for a couple of years until this.  According to the crime stats total crime is ever so slightly down like 0.58% this year.

To answer your questions:

 

We cook and eat 98% of our meals at home.  I don't understand the basis for your comment.

 

Yes, we happily live here.  Our oldest daughter, a College professor, and her husband, an FDNY lieutenant, made the choice to move back here from Long Island, primarily for the educational benefits for their children.  They continue to chase their dreams.  I'm the first in my family to graduate from college and earn a post graduate degree.  Why?  Because NYC provided me with a free college education.

 

No, the streets are not deserted and millions have not left the city.  Obviously, in midtown Manhattan, there are considerably less tourists making for less congested streets.  The outer boroughs are pretty much the same.

 

Hope this helps your understanding of my home.

Any chance you can convince your friends to stay??  Florida is crowded enough already.
