One of my favorite covid lecturers. He was traveling all around the world during this crap last year, waving his finger at everyone else about social distancing and stuff. But yes, get vaxxed, people!

If K-State doesn't make it into Conference Elite, I'm going to blame it on this

No rough ridin' way only 34% of Riley county adults are vaccinated.  That has to be false.

Appears to be the case for those 18 and up.

I think there's something a little funky happening with the percentages there.  Based on databases that put Riley County at 34%, they project the Riley County population at 75,290, which likely includes students -- many of whom probably haven't stepped foot in Riley County since before vaccines were available.  Thus, the denominator is probably screwed up.

There's no real explanation for Riley being lower than neighboring counties.

I think we were still rationing them back then and it would probably be hard to qualify as a teenager with no pre-existing health conditions. Every county kind of did its own thing, though, so I'm not sure.

Either way, with students making up an incredibly disproportionate number of Riley County's population*, this isn't apples and oranges.

It just doesn't make any sense that Riley has a significantly lower vax rate than Washington, Waubensee, Geary, and Pott.

yeah, i think this is probably a big problem with those kind of data.  afaik, they are just taking the number of vaccines given in an area divided by population.  if you look at some of the fine scale urban data, you see places with over 100% vaccinated, for example.  if you look at texas the border counties lead the state in vaccination rate - which doesn't make sense until you factor in all the mexican nationals that have engaged in vaccine tourism, etc.

The KS government website puts Riley County at 49% of one jab and 45% at complete regimen for those 12 and up.  A little north of 43% for one dose and 39% for full regimen for total pop.

A doctor in Alabama said one of the last things her patients do before they are intubated due to Covid-19, is beg her for the vaccine, but she has to tell them it's too late.
When those patients die and she talks to their family, they tell her they thought the virus was a hoax, Dr. Brytney Cobia of Grandview Medical Center said in a Facebook post. She said she tells them the best way to honor their loved one is to get vaccinated.
"I go back to my office, write their death note, and say a small prayer that this loss will save more lives," Cobia wrote, urging people to ask her questions about the vaccine. "It's not too late, but some day it might be."

Sad stuff folks.  Get vaxxed

Those replies :sdeek:
I know that the vaccine has been politicized but I think we have underestimated the sheer amount of simply stupid people out there.

Does anyone know if citizens of E.U. member states have been restricted from travelling to other E.U. member states during the pandemic?
