I'm vaccinated and, no, I don't know what's in it - neither this vaccine, the ones I had as a child, or in other treatments…whether it's for cancer, AIDS, or vaccines for children. I trust my doctor when she says it’s needed.

I also don't know what's in Advil, Tylenol, or other meds, it just cures my headaches and my pains ...

I don't know what's in the ink they used for my tattoo or every ingredient in my soap, toothpaste, shampoo or deodorant.

I don’t know the long term effect of cell phone use or whether or not that restaurant I ate at this week really used clean foods and washed their hands.

In short…there’s a lot of things I don't know and never will…

I just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do something other than just go to work every day all day or stay quarantined at home.

I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of life like it was before.

As a child I was vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, and others; my parents trusted the science and I never had to suffer through or transmit any of those diseases.

I'm #vaccinated, not to please the government but:
* To not die from Covid
* To not clutter a hospital bed if I get sick
* To hug my loved ones and friends
* To not have to do tests to go to a restaurant or go on holidays
* To live my life
* To have my kids and grandkids go back to living their best lives
* For #Covid19 to be an old memory
* To protect us, locally and globally

My own views…

So,,,, the government of Ontario changes the rules for pro sports while the average business is held to different standards. Fifty percent of capacity for spectators does not allow for social distancing requirements that the rest of us running a business are being held to. Unbelievable. :rolleyes:

That was to be expected .  I'm sure the big shots with the Jays, Leafs etc got together with Rob Ford and made it happen . Unbelievable is right . Eight months bars, spas, salons , barber shops , restaurants were closed . These places were asking for the restrictions to be eased , but nope. Now the Jays need support for their playoff run so lets increase capacity. If cases go up they better not resort to lockdowns again if they are not going to put restrictions on the Leafs and Raptors

According to a friend high up in the Alberta Health services, the govt is now very close to enacting "Critical Care Triage Protocol"   - 


What this means, essentially:

If COVID-19 pushes Alberta's health-care system past the breaking point (they are almost there), critical care will be reserved for patients with the greatest chance of survival. If you come in & they deem you unlikely to recover, they will send you home.

The framework outlines exclusion criteria — medical conditions that would mean the difference between treatment in the ICU or not.

These specialized departments care for a hospital's most ill patients, including advanced COVID-19 patients who require ventilators to survive. 

Under Phase 1, patients with life-threatening conditions such as severe dementia, severe burns, those who have suffered a massive stroke or are in a deep coma, may be denied entrance into the ICU. 

The barriers to treatment increase under Phase 2, with more stringent measurements applied based on the health and age of each patient. 

Staff untrained in critical care would be widely deployed in ICUs.

People over 60 with poor chances of survival  could be denied admission to the ICU. Only children with the most severe medical needs, such as organ failure, would be admitted to ICU under Phase 2. 

 

Doctors would be asked to decide if patients who have been on machine ventilation for 14 days should be taken off life support order to give another patient a chance at survival, a decision that would be made with or without family consent. 

A medical team would assess each patient in critical condition using a series of scoring systems focused on the patient's likelihood of survival.

  • In Phase 1, patients with an 80 per cent of probability of dying within the year would be denied critical care. 
  • In Phase 2, those with a 50 per cent of probability of death within a year would be denied critical care.

"The measures they are talking about are extraordinary," said Dr. Raiyan Chowdhury, a critical care specialist at Edmonton's Royal Alexandra Hospital. "It's never been like this." 

The rigid protocols, although necessary during a crisis, would leave doctors with little flexibility to give difficult cases a final chance at survival, he said.

"If you had a heart attack at home and you had a cardiac arrest and the downtime was greater than 20 minutes, you wouldn't be coming to the ICU," Chowdhury said. "If you had a severe brain injury, you wouldn't be coming to the ICU.

"It doesn't necessarily mean that some of those people who will [under the protocol] be excluded wouldn't have survived and recovered in an ICU.… Those people won't even get the chance." 

 

More on the protocol here: Critical Care Triage Protocol

 

All those saying it is their right to get vaccinated or not: over the last 2 months, 84% of those hospitalized (and well over 90% in ICU) for covid in alberta are unvaccinated.   Aside from endangering the elderly and immune compromised by spreading the virus, you are also now taking over the entire province's ability to help those who are most vulnerable.

Nevertheless, the 26-year-old forward said Thursday that his decision not to get vaccinated against the coronavirus was “pretty set in stone.”:rolleyes:

“Just personal choice, freedom of choice and life choice,” Bertuzzi told reporters in a media session via Zoom after the Red Wings’ first day of training camp in Traverse City, Mich.

Money talks and keep in mind these well to do people are all friends. You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.
