  1. At the risk of getting slammed, I would like to suggest it would be better for the expat community, which has proven quite effective in protecting themselves from covid, to let the Mexican community who have to be out there working or are living in larger family groups, to get the first few rounds of vaccinations. Personally speaking I'd also be leery of getting around those large crowds of vaccination seekers.

  2. What I will never understand is why you and others of your I'll feel the need to spew your opinions. Fine, you don't believe this is a pandemic, nor that a vaccine is necessary, but it seems the only one you're looking to convince is yourself. You do what you see fit and accept the rewards or consequences and allow the rest of to the same without listening to your opinions which mean diddly squat to most everyone.

  5. We heard from friends that they had gone to Tonala yesterday morning and had the vaccine within three hours. After finding out the site was open until 9:00 pm, we drove 45 minutes to the place. It is all drive-up in your car. We got in line at 6:41 and had the shot at 8:50. I never left my car. I believe we showed 3-4 documents...my wife had them all. They had 300 or so student volunteers and it was incredible how smoothly the process went. As you approached the spot to get the shot the students were actually walking along with your car asking and answering questions. After getting the shot we

  7. Just to wind this one up, since it looks like you took offence to my original post: I try to avoid the squabbles on here, so how about taking my post as a simple statement of fact with NO TONE, okay? And in fact, no "tone" was intended! Peace. In general, I've been on this board for years and I've never seen it so full of contentions arguments, general incivility and people getting upset as it is now. Maybe it's the pandemic that's getting to people. I hope it goes back to the way it used to be: a source of useful information we could share with our fellow Lakesiders.

  18. SERVIDORES DE LA NACIÓN Means SERVANTS OF THE NATION. Some time back the government asked for student volunteers to be trained on how to vaccinate people and to aid in a quicker vaccination program. Thousands were recruited to aid and serve their country. They have been given the responsibility for this area. Many people are happy to have received their vaccination sooner than later. Those that received the vaccination had to present their copy of the registration at the time. (which you were "strongly informed" ) to do on line. Almost every country has made moving changes to the

  25. Your insinuation that the only Mexicans I associate with are my maid and gardener ( I have neither) and that I don't have Mexican friends of my socio-economic class, therefore know nothing about the changes Mexicans would also like, is ignorantly presumptuous. Just because someone doesn't find complaining about the state of things on a web forum to be a productive activity doesn't mean they accept the status quo and don't work for change.

  26. Today, medical experts in Canada were asked if it is time to ease the COVID lockdowns. Allergists were in favour of scratching it, but Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but Neurologists thought the government had a lot of nerve. Obstetricians felt certain everyone was labouring under a misconception, while Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.

  27. Updated just now: Two updates to the ever-changing details needed to get your vaccine tomorrow. 1) The Jocotepec vaccination date has been moved up from a Wednesday start to tomorrow, Tuesday, coinciding with the Chapala and Ajijic start. 2) About 40 minutes ago, Governor Alfaro posted that the Ajijic location is the Cultural Center on the plaza. This contradicts the interim mayor’s dinnertime video update (with separate still images from other sources corroborating) that the location is to be at the Malecón. Heck if I know where in Ajijic actual vaccinati

  29. Skimmed the thread, and to add a couple notes: https://www.forbes.com/sites/joewalsh/2021/02/25/pfizers-covid-vaccine-doesnt-need-ultra-cold-storage-fda-says/?sh=76aa50fd226e Secondly, not to be in any way argumentative, but Mostly Lost, may I ask where the information came from that mixing vaccines is o.k.? Part of one personal plan I had was to get a vaccine here, and then another in the U.S. To my knowledge, the U.S. is not offering Chinese vaccines whereas 50 million Chinese vaccines were ordered into Mexico. I thus emailed a U.S. research and teaching professor

  33. And some of us don't mind waiting for Pfizer or J&J to be privately arranged through our doctors. Throughout this period I am quite satisfied with what we have determined to be safe behaviour for us and it's working ,proof being that I'm still here to tell the tale. No need for any advice and don't waste your fingers typing self righteous kvetching about my behaviour.

  37. Seeing as how you are constantly kvetching about how things are in Mexico, this is just more of the same. Perhaps you think the Mexicans should get advice from Florida on how to only make vaccines available to areas that voted for your political party?

  40. The problem with Lake Chapala is the same as with Lake Sahara--yeah, Lake Sahara. They both have no outflow so there's too much siltification. This means that their volume to surface area is out of the proportion so that there is too much evaporation and not enough of a reservoir because its too shallow. Eventually it will go underground. I wish that when the lake was extremely low that they would have excavated a deep channel to hold water. there was a rumor at that time that a Japanese company wanted to dredge the lake and was willing to build a train spur to take away the soil to Japan f

  41. I have enjoyed reading this thread. My advice is to live here or not. Move here because of the beauty of the area and the people. Don’t move here because you fear the feminization of bullfrogs. Argue over who knows more about the lake and who is or is not an expert. It really does not matter. The lake is here and it is beautiful. You can live the wonderful life offered here or play junior scientist and attempt to generate as much fear as you can. We shall all be dead soon enough. Lake Chapala will continue to exist as it has for thousands of years.
