CORONAVIRUS INFO PROVIDED BY DR. JIM HARRIS – 02/26/2021

J. Harris: The reason to continue to wears masks and keep a distance even if you have been vaccinated is related to the “MUTANTS.” Just like Zombies or charging Rhinos,  they’re hard to kill and might not be covered completely by the vaccination you took. So when you are in a crowded place full of people you’re not sure of, wear a mask. 

WHO HAS COVID VACCINE IN TEXAS?

Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Availability

J. Harris: The Texas Division of Emergency Management has a great map with vaccine locations marked. You can enlarge the map over your area and click on the dots until you find someone with vaccine. Nationally, the swells are putting one of these together according to the NYT, but as of now, they only have 4 states and don’t include Texas. See below:

Here’s my updated list:

WHO HAS COVID VACCINE IN TEXAS?

Facilities that offer Covid Vaccinations will light up. Most of them in our area are out of vaccine, but a quick way to check for new vaccine, is to point and click on the various sites to see if vaccine has come in. This is faster than the telephone. I’d get on the waiting list at several area Hubs or sites (mostly drug stores) and continue being careful  with masks and distance. The Vaccine is coming. It should become better and remain steady for the next several months. Help you family and friends get signed up. Help people who may be alone sign up. We’re all in this together and we’ll all get out of it together. Keep up with who you are signing up with so that you can cancel unneeded vaccine appointments so that someone else can fill them.

Texas COVID-19 Vaccine Availability—Read this first and follow directions

All area newspapers have information. I don’t know much about social media.

If you have a personal doctor, call his or her office since some private doctors will have access to vaccine or can at least advise you what to do.

1. Covid-19: One in Seven People in England Have Antibodies from Infection or Vaccination, Finds Study (BMJ) Almost 14% of people in England now have evidence of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, according to the fifth round of the Real-time assessment of community transmission (React-2) study. The study, led by Imperial College London, used the Fortress lateral flow test to detect antibodies in a drop of blood from the finger. Tests were sent to a random sample of the population between 26 January and 8 February 2021 and 154,172 people in England had valid results.This round of the study included—for the first time—18,000 people who had received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.

2. Moderna Ready to Test Version of Covid-19 Vaccine Aimed at Worrisome Variant (STAT News) Moderna is pressing forward with a modified version of its Covid-19 vaccine meant to protect against an emerging strain of the virus, the company said Wednesday, planning to start a clinical trial as soon as regulators give the green light. Moderna said it is seeking to test the novel vaccine on its own and as a combined shot with its current vaccine. It also plans to test whether giving a booster of the current vaccine on its own will give enhanced protection against new variants of the virus that causes Covid-19.
