  2. I think when it is time to get the shot any approved vaccine is better than nothing.

  3. The intent of a vaccine is to prevent a disease, yes, of course that is the goal. The function of a vaccine is to stimulate an immune response in the body. We are not all equal, it is not a digital 1 or 0 thing, more like snowflakes in that literally every person can have a different type and amount of response. Nothing wrong or different about that from any vaccine. And all the vaccines approved to date (and several that are about to be) all have been shown to do the job, very well. That is the bottom line.

  4. This post not only is full of incorrect and misleading "opinion" content, it has no place in the lakeside / Guad forum, either. Both the OP and the "Moderator" should know that and it should be removed. The Queen has been vaccinated, as have many world leaders. Nothing is "perfect".....but even the Astra Zeneca vaccine, just approved by Health Canada has been shown to be 100% effective in preventing hospitalizations and deaths. Both in the trials, and in real world use. And THAT is the goal, at least in this near term. "Stop The Spread".....of false, misleading

  6. Lancet is a well-respected, science-based peer journal that has been around since 1823. It relies on fact-checking and the integrity of the researchers that provide sources. To say it was "burned" is overstepping. No journal is perfect. To pick it out and politicize it is baseless. 1823 is a lot longer than you or I, neither of us ever having made a mistake by accepting someone else's work, of course. I would rely on its reporting without hesitating, certainly when compared to most of the Googlers here.

  8. Zeb I understand your desire to get good information about Covid-19... or anything for that matter. I wish that your previous Post and initial responses had not be deleted as there was what I think was a beneficial Post regarding this doctor. Maybe it will be reposted here. In a nut shell, this doctor is way off the charts with respect to what the vast majority of scientists and doctors IN THE WORLD are saying. Also.... from the deleted Post.... he has been issued a 'cease and desist' order from either the FDA or the CDC about these Covid claims. He also runs a 'supplement' business w

  9. Just google this guy and you will see that he is just another nut-job in the blabosphere of what is called SOCIAL MEDIA !!! I put into the search bar "Who is Dr. Steven Hotze M.D." and here is the first entry: Steven Hotze (born in 1949 or 1950) is a talk-radio host, physician, and Republican activist in Texas. He is an anti-LGBT rights activist, and has filed lawsuits to strike down COVID-19-related public health measures and invalidate ballots cast in the 2020 US election.

  10. Great post but we need to keep the focus on Mexico on this board. Unfortunately not all Canadians here seem to share your point of view and this line of discussion could open a can of worms that requires moderator intervention. Personally, I appreciate your kind words and share the same feelings about most Canadians and Canada. This board tries to keep the focus on Mexico and on helping each other with some of the vagaries of the system here and how to navigate same. For example, things like driving licenses, tourist, temporary and permanent visas, medical services, where to find stu

  11. We got covid here at the end of January last year.....before it was even supposed to be here:/ My family was visiting from the US, flew down from WA state and we were vacationing in Manzanillo, so we really do not know where we contracted it. My symptoms were worse than anyone else in our household. I even went to the Dr. and I don't ever do that unless I feel really bad:/ The Dr. of course did not test for covid, and really I don't think Mexico had tests then. I hate to think we spread it to anyone else but we may well have:( We had to go to the US in May to care for my mom at the end of her

  14. So I'm trying to wrap my head around this: my busy business is best served by always making customers wait because I am on the phone, coupled with not enough staff... and not randomly but consistently? And therefore you should feel sorry for me? Where were you when I lost my job because 1,000s in my company were let go as board members demanded a higher return on their dividends?

Guadalajara has lots of places to shop and they deliver. Unless you are from a very small town and do not drive to big cities then Guadalajara can be intimidating but it is a great city to see and shop in, Get to know it and you will find whatever you will ever need.

You might be better served by a company that has local service and experience. Here is a local company. Lake Chapala Moving http://lakechapalamoving.com/ They are typically lower cost than other companies here. You have a one time exemption from import taxes. You will need a Manaje de casa properly prepared. Only you can decide if the cost of moving all your stuff is worth it. Although this gentleman passed aw

  20. As far as I am concerned the debate about if you should get the vaccine is over. All the testing showed a 94% - 95% success rate and my research shows that this rate has only increased during the actual ongoing program implemented to date. On another point regarding getting the shots here, I was a little tardy in signing up on the registration site mivacuna.salud.gob.mx due to the reports of the time and difficulty involved. Yesterday I bit the bullet and bingo...a piece of cake!!! I use Chrome and have it set as English as the default language and the site came up in English. First it a

  25. Thanks Mainecoons for the heads up, as I understand we don't need to open any cans of worms. Plus there is a lot about Mexico that is misreported in the news and I have learned a lot about the Mexican people. So I have no problem sticking with topics just about Mexico. I will find another place to express my support for the Americans. If anyone knows a good place, let me know, because it seems everyone is so eager to hate other than support. I think its time we changed the narrative to a more positive one, the only way to do that is to speak out with support for each other.

  28. I have used Anna for almost 15yrs now and I agree she can be frustrating at times, the times I have heard talking on her cell phone she was trying to help a customer. So many of her gringo customers don’t have a clue about using a cell phone, as an example a poster claims that the 200 peso package doesn’t work in Canada, it works for me, but then I took the time to find out how it works and which network Telcel uses in Canada . So many of her customers want her to scratch the card and reload their phones, why can’t they do it themselves or use Mitelcel.. it would free up so much of Anna’s ti

  35. Got our first AstraZeneca/Oxford COVID-19 vaccine Thursday Feb 25 in Cihuatlán, Jalisco. The clinic was for aged 60 and over. My ticket read that I was #293 but as I entered I was told there were no more vials ready - short wait while they mixed up new ones in the back. There were many more seniors waiting after us. Unfortunately a lack of bathrooms.

  42. Remember, the US Government made contracts with many of the drug companies to attempt to create a vaccine and the contracts did not say the resulting product had to work. The American taxpayers underwrote the R&D risk for these companies but now Obrador says the products belong to the world? Sounds like a philosophy becoming more prevalent in the US. "Capitalism doesn't work because people are selfish." "People will work for the common good in a socialist society." Yeah, right!

  43. I am not going to base my confidence in a vaccine on what kind of government produced it. That's just inserting politics into what, IMO, should be a choice based on reliable research. Let's hear about the latter. So far, there seem to be many conflicting opinions about whether some of the well known vaccines are or are not safe to administer to those in the truly "elderly" group.

  44. My wife, a Mexican citizen received her first Pfizer vaccine shot today. The Chickasaws, my tribe are now vaccinating tribal member spouses. She complained it hurt her arm but after buying her blueberry pancakes, the pain went away. They are now saying the first shot Pfizer vaccine can be up to 90% effective. Many countries are now planning on giving just the one shot so they can do double the number of people vaccinated. Johnson & Johnson is advertised as a one shot vaccine but it appears one shot from Pfizer is more effective than J&J.
