Our numbers are still looking good. I'd like to see it continue sailing down over the next 2 weeks as if the long weekend had never happened.

For those who got Astra Zeneca, University of Waterloo put out a pretty good info on what vaccine may be best suited for your 2nd dose. Long version below, short version in the infographic on twitter.

Now that BC is giving us the choice, I am going to opt for Pfizer or Moderna for my 2nd dose.

We had our first AZ vax 12 weeks this coming Monday. Going for Pfizer for the second, but all the nearby pharmacies are out of stock. Nothing to do with blood clot fears, but 1 shot AZ and 1 shot Pfizer seems to give the best immunity, or so the experts on TV say.

Seems to be what they are getting at, AZ + mRNA is likely better against the variants than AZ + AZ.

Not sure when we will get ours, Pfizer and Moderna they will send a booking link when eligible, AZ the pharmacy where we got will eventually call pending stock, but we can turn down AZ and wait for mRNA chances are at the rate things are going, a mRNA booking will become available before an AZ simply due to supply.

Does not appear BC will be doing provincial vaccine passports.

"“We’re not enthusiastic about it quite frankly. This is private health information at the end of the day,” he said. "

Also looks like BC Government is pushing the feds to let tourists come, makes sense, not enough domestic tourists to make up for the lack of American and other foreign tourists, and Americans have shown they are willing and eager to travel this summer.

Today I went to the same shops as every week. I noticed that there were people on patios so I supposed there had been some lifting of restrictions. Then I saw the queue, it went for many blocks, socially distanced but still, hundreds and hundreds of couples. I went into the LCBO, the checkout person asked "have you seen the queue?" I said I had but I didn't know what it was about. The checkout person didn't either "must be something to do with the reopening", We wondered what excitement waited at the end of the queue, free tickets to see Celine Dion, perhaps? A sample give away at the cannabis shop?

Winners. The Winners shop had reopened and the people of Ontario had nothing better to do than stand for hours in the sun to go into it.

Seems the same happened at Winners in the GTA. It was on the news yesterday…people started queuing hours before the store opened. Some waiting 3 - 4 hours.

Whatever for? What manner of a person sits in lockdown for a year longing for the moment when he or she can queue for hours for the chance to buy second quality clothing?

My daughter said some of her staff took yesterday off to shop.

I suppose it drives the economy and, indeed, I shop. I bought nearly a thousand dollars worth of wood stain today and a new paintbrush. Clothing though, in a country that doesn't have fashion, seems a very odd thing to queue for.
