    Personal attacks aside, the USA finished dead last when it comes to trust in its media outlets. If you think the lack of trust doesn't have ripple effects, you are naive.

    That must of been a pretty narrow sampling Comrade, but ya, for Democratic Countries, the USA continues to back slide toward Fascism thanks to the 40% of the public in this country with insane beliefs like their deposed Fuhrer.

    I would say slow & steady, the vax program is completely controled by the regional health boards, you book it on line or by phone, they take walk-ins but you only get vaxed by the gov at one vax center, the stuff you guys talk about getting vaxed at a walgreens or costco is completely furin to us up here

    we got the aniti-vax up here as well but with Vaxcine mandates you can't do shit without a vax passport, can't go to the bar/ diner out/ fly in a plane/ go to a movie/ the noose is closing on the ability to work at many jobs and those who don't like it have the choice to stay at home with no money

    its been slow around here cuz of religous types and the special flowers

    We're getting there here, too, and especially King County, Washington where you need proof of vaccine or a negative test to do most of those things.

    The vax mandate is for all of BC, I'm sure there are places that are not checking but if they get caught they could lose their license to operate which happend in Kelowna where an establishment lost their liquor license to the end of current regs which would have been 3 months

    the local craft brew wants to scan my QR code even tho they scanned it yesturday and thats ok

    G.O.P. Fights Covid Mandates, Then Blames Biden as Cases Rise
    WASHINGTON — Over eight hours last Thursday night and into Friday morning, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California hit on many issues as he spoke on the House floor in an unsuccessful effort to thwart House passage of President Biden’s social safety net and climate change bill. But among his most audacious assertions was that Mr. Biden was to blame for the country’s failure to quell the pandemic.

    Mr. McCarthy used this line of attack even as members of his own Republican Party have spent months flouting mask ordinances and blocking the president’s vaccine mandates, and the party’s base has undermined vaccination drives while rallying around those who refuse the vaccine. Intensive care units and morgues have been strained to capacity by the unvaccinated, a demographic dominated by those who voted last year for President Donald J. Trump.

    As of mid-September, 90 percent of adult Democrats had been vaccinated, compared with 58 percent of adult Republicans.

    This is why we can't really talk about this without bringing politics into it.

    FIFY.. trying to stick to the topic of vaccines and why we're failing at getting everyone protected.. Seriously, facts from the mainstream media outlets versus alternate facts via the entertainment actual fake news outlets. That's a big part of why so many freedumb fighters aren't getting vaxxed..

    Thx for the details about British Columbia.

    Are the mandates being enforced or are there havens for the anti vaxed where they are not being enforced?

    Nicely fixed

    It blows my fricking mind that people still refuse to get vaccinated when unvaccinated young healthy, E.g. 26 yo. 52 yo, etc..., continue to die. Plus, we have to ration Healthcare, read canceling elective surgical cases, to care for the dumbass people who don't get vaccinated. Over 25% of our hospitals census is covid right now.

    Jeebus people get it together already. How selfish, yet self-harmful. How plain fricking dumb.

    I almost. Just almost. Want to say that unvaccinated individuals should be turned away at the door just like total joint patients that don't quit smoking or bariatric patients that don't lose enough weight preop. Clearly, a different situation though.

    Rant over. Thx. Very therapeutic.

    "Vax it or Leave it" has a strangely appealing ring to it.

    I am sure there are ways around not being vaxed, I know I have to show my passport every time I go for a beer and if they didn't know me they would also wana see picture ID

    I think locally some people who are on the religious right are not vaxed, but they can work for family/ other god heads then all they gotta do is go to church so if they get really sick even die ... its gods will eh

    Not aware of any havens, but I also don't go out much. I do know of a couple people employed with the prov govt that are now on unpaid leave. One is in mgmt. I think there is only a single anti-vax hold-out in the local healthcare on leave. So at least those workplace mandates are being enforced. Those mandates certainly contributed to the uptick in vaccination rates.

    It's great that's working!

    I feel like my local area will become a haven when mandates come. Local school districts are requesting the state to reconsider the pending mandate for public school students because 25% of polled parents said that they'd pull their kids from the schools. When no restaurants were allowed to have indoor diners, several ignored the mandate and became destinations for locals and anti-covid tourists (they were packed most nights while many restaurants were shuttered).

    I'm hopeful mandates will improve vax rates in my area, but I'm still skeptical.

    Canada begins vaccinating children today. Hopefully the end is in sight, whatever that looks like.
