    Yes, when lab work is requested it is requested by the doctor. The results are sent to them and they can share results at their discretion. 

    When you get lab work in Ontario, you have your own independent online access to it.   Check LifeLabs website, you just need to create a user account (no charge).    Pretty sure that is the law, too.       Select a Province – LifeLabs

    I keep hearing "once in a hundred year storm", but you are not getting my attention until I hear "once in a hundred thousand year or once in a million or even a billion year storm" ...however CNN was not around then!!!

    Age of the Earth | National Geographic Society

    Earth is estimated to be 4.54 billion years old, plus or minus about 50 million years. Scientists have scoured the Earth searching for the oldest rocks to radiometrically date. In northwestern Canada, they discovered rocks about 4.03 billion years old.

    Why are you posting, if this doesn't have your attention?   SAD.

    As of a few days ago, the XOOM site no longer had Telcel payment options of any kind, in fact there were only 2 countries listed there.

    Actually, it is still there, just with a different link now to the page:

    Recharge telcel phones in Mexico - Top Up Instantly | Xoom, a PayPal Service

    I encourage anyone using it and paying with Paypal to use a debit card link, and not a credit card link, for that Paypal payment......as some credit cards charge this as a cash advance with the related fees and interest....vs if using a debit card, it just comes right out of your bank account.

    I am in Chiapas right now and my neighbor and a friend of mine have covid one had 2 Pfizer shots , the other 2 Sinovac. The one with Pfizer got sicker- The one with Sinovac also has diabetis but she got better.

    Not all immune systems / responses are created equally.....but being fully vaccinated is the right thing to do and way better than not being protected to whatever extent the vaccine and one's immune system respond.       More and better protection for the person and all they come into contact with.     That is a fact.

    The money goes through PayPal. Same prices as doing it here.

    Alert to all readers here:   I tried this option, and Xoom / Paypal charged it as a cash advance / wire transfer, instead of a purchase.      So the credit card that is linked to my Paypal account was charged a cash advance fee of $3.50 dollars, PLUS they charge interest on the amount of the payment from the time the "purchase" is made.

    I would highly recommend, based on my experience, NOT to use Xoom / Paypal, although I am informed that using a debit card linked to the Paypal account, instead of a credit card, may avoid this issue.       I assume also having a balance on one's Paypal account, could also do that.       FYI so you don't get the same hit that I did......and if anyone has further info on this, please post it back here.    Thank you.
