Weirdo.
Next you'll be telling me you don't know what Path of Exile or League of Legends is. Or Town of Salem.

Me though, I'm hip and happening and down with the kids.

I say "kids", I mean 20-somethings. God knows what the kids are playing.

Pissed off because I went to 4 chemists (pharmacies) today and not one had any masks left. My sister has Influenza A and since it's extremely contagious and the most dangerous type of influenza to public health, quite easily escalating to epidemic proportions, I would have quite liked some added protection for myself and others. Apparently people were buying them in bulk as protection against the novel coronavirus, and when I suggested that a bit of judicious rationing might have been a good idea I just got blank stares. I only frigging wanted a few .

Stores here are massively sold out as well, black market sellers are popping up, someone posted on the local reddit page they saw someone buying boxes upon boxes of them, why stores are not limiting I have no idea, there was word in Richmond that masks were available at pharmacy the other day and 100+ people lined up.

Good idea JG, I'll do that. I've been looking after her all week (swab results only came back yesterday) and I'd hate to be incubating it and passing it on.

I can understand people wanting to have them but yes, when it was obvious that supplies were going to run out quickly it would have been good to see at least some sensible rationing.

We don't usually see a lot of flu at the height of summer, we get our vaccinations in autumn (fall for you guys) ready for the winter season. My sister did have her flu shot last year as did I, but of course there are so many different strains of it that you can never cover yourself 100%.

Pretty much the same here, flu shots become available middle of October typically and it usually peaks mid winter and tapers off into spring.

I do think if the flu shot was fully covered for everyone more people would get it here, its only covered for high risk groups though.
