Is the pandemic over? Not in countries "under-vaccinated." For countries reaching "herd immunity," it looks like the pandemic is over. The UK reported zero deaths from Covid-19. I assume that was in a 24-hour period. In the US, we should easily reach Biden's goal two weeks early.
Moderna becomes the second vaccine maker asking for full FDA approval. Pfizer/BioNTech applied for full approval on May 7, about a month ago.
If this can be confirmed, this is quite remarkable, maybe one of the best vaccines out there:
Moderna has been found to be more than 90% effective at protecting against Covid and more than 95% effective against severe disease up to six months after the second dose.
181 Free Doughnuts
And, yes, I qualify.
And, yes, there is a Krispy Kreme down the street from where I live.
Krispy Kreme has been offering a free “Original Glazed” doughnut every day through the end of the year to vaccinated customers who bring their COVID-19 vaccination cards into participating stores. And in the roughly two months since the chain rolled out this free-doughnut-a-day promotion, Krispy Kreme has already given away a gut-busting 1.5 million doughnuts, the company revealed on Tuesday.
And customers who have received their single-shot Johnson & Johnson JNJ jab, or at least one of the Moderna MRNA and Pfizer PFE doses, can double-down on the deal this Friday.
That’s because, in honor of National Doughnut Day on June 4, anyone (vaccinated or not) bellying up to a participating store gets a free doughnut of their choice. But customers who are also vaccinated against COVID can score their free daily glazed doughnut on top of that, which means they can score two treats gratis.
I just feel guilty walking in every day, and getting a free donut. LOL.
But not that guilty.
I don't think being rewarded for doing the right thing is the right way of going about these things, but anything to prevent another national lockdown.
