    Skidog is asking questions about something that hasnít been implemented by OSHA yet. AFAIK- there is only a request from the President that they use their rule making authority to issue rules for vaccination or testing.

    I wondered if there was some written part of that OSHA req and how it would apply here. I understand that the mandate isn't in place yet, but we have some details, just wondered if the TGR think tank had something more...If not I can wait, I was just wondering is all..doesnt apply to me personally so, I guess i fall in the "fuck em" camp???

    But isn't the vaccine supposed to decrease the duration of the infection? Maybe they were true positives, but cleared quickly? I don't know enough about the testing to know if this makes sense or not.

    this^^^ is also my understanding.


    of course, the other thing I saw last night was reports of lawsuits being filed to block the mandate -

    And how do we know that either of them is safe? I mean if I accidentally pray to Shiva the destroyer?

    Or if I think of Hitler?

    Iím not sure that SCOTUS will touch this. Amy Coney Island already dismissed one such lawsuit without even commenting.

    It was an executive order which only affects executive branch employees. The majority of federal government employees get an exemption under the latest executive order, including all of Congress + staff.

Booster has become a dirty word for some people.

    To put it another way--aren't the people who say the vaccines were tested too quickly right, in one limited sense? As I recall the trials for all the US approved vaccines combined Phase II ad Phase III, but Phase II is normally where different doses are compared, isn't it? and that I don't believe was done in the trials. So now we're beginning to find out what the ideal dose might be.
    they interviewed a researcher ( I think he was from U of texas) on " quirks and quarks " a cbc science show and he said a lot of the science was already done 5 yrs previous on SARS so they downloaded the data and knocked out a spiked protein model in < an hr from existing research,

    also there was none of the usual foot dragging that happens in research instead of doing one after the other they were doing phase one/ two / three all at the same time to speed things up

    On another show they interviewed the prof from UBC who worked on the delivery method, when asked how long he was working on this he said 40 yrs

    So the vaccine is not < 2yrs old there was a lot of previous science and i think the Covid vaccine was not spun very well

    goat -

    I will take a crack at this - and gladly delete my post If Mofro, LSL, or Multi- have better information -

    Please remember these vaccines were developed as part of an (emergency) response -
    that allows the Government And the Companies to streamline the development-and-approval process.
    still, testing is ongoing --

    Please recognize the abcnews report is based on a (J&J) press release -
    thus, we are seeing a second interpretation
    ( for example, the report claims the second dose of J&J is 100% effective against 'severe disease'
    ( no one would make that claim based on science ( and testing ) ( - one would simply say, with a second dose, there were no cases of 'severe disease' in the testing ) --


    regarding boosters and use of the term/word 'boosters' , I will speculate -

    J&J developed a single-dose vaccine ;
    I believe the press release ( - not the abcnews article - ) used the term, 'second dose' , but
    the article uses the word booster, as it is commonly understood ;

    my speculation is in the regulatory process, the term booster may have specific regulatory impact
    ( J&J may have to revise and refile their,,, ( vaccine for approval ) were they intending to alter their Approval ;

    rather, with the additional testing, J&J appears to be able to move forward with their participation in the Vaccination program
    ( and may be later able to quietly amend their Approval., or it simply becomes a matter of 'accepted practice' for a second dose ( 'booster' ) to be administered two months to six months after the initial dose. )


    regarding the idea of the term booster becoming a target of criticism ,,, I think I will say,
    the testing shows Vaccination with the vaccines provides protection ( immunity for a period of time. ) and
    additional testing confirms Vaccination provides protection And boosters provide additional protection ( greater immunity, And extended immunity )

    If 'booster' is not the target of criticism, something else will be -


    I have more, but I want to limit this post to responding to goat's post - before it is six pages buried.

    thanks for ( listening) -- tj

    Are you saying the majority of federal workers do not work for the executive branch?

    Iím confused what your point is.

    The only exemption is for reasons outlined by law.

    I didnít follow this story. But they likely had additional rapid tests and also PCR confirmation tests done immediately after getting pulled off the show.

    A positive rapid test on an asymptomatic person should prompt isolation of that person until a PCR test confirms they have covid. If an additional rapid test and a PCR test were done and they all came back negative it would suggest the initial rapid test was a false positive.

    Smrter people in here can correct me if I got this wrong.

    Please explain how “the majority of federal government employees get an exemption” when
    - The exec branch has about 4.3 million employees and a huge number of defense contractors
    - The legislative and judicial combined have about 70,000

    Update on Washington's state employee mandate (the strictest in the nation, with no testing alternative): As of Sept. 20, 68% of the nearly 63,000 workers subject to the mandate are fully vaccinated. That’s up from the 49% on Sept. 6. Oct 18 is the deadline to be fully vaccinated.
