Why does John Catanzara, Chicago police union boss, not object to requirements that officers wear bullet proof vests? 4 times as many police officers are killed by COVID than by gunfire.

Rice on the coup attempt: “I study countries that do this. I didn’t think it would happen in my own country.” And yet she chooses to move on? Why, when the authoritarian menace is in our own country, do so many hawks become doves?https://twitter.com/Mediaite/status/1450936942292578309 …
BREAKING: Boosters now approved for all 3 vaccines in the US. Pfizer & Moderna for those > 65 or at risk. J&J for all > 18. FDA also authorizes mix & match for booster shots.
My experience in the ICU last month reminded me of the reality that some of the "low risk" people do end up on ventilators for months. They end up with tracheostomies and feeding tubes and need to learn to walk again. 4/10
A Another heartbreaking day in the ER. A healthy 40-something dx w/ COVID a week ago. So was their spouse. Both unvaccinated. My patient came in today with an oxygen sat of 64%. Their spouse has a mild cough. 1/10
Using the fact that an 84-year-old cancer patient died of COVID despite being fully vaccinated, after we’ve explained to you that the immune compromised and elderly are more likely to die of COVID, as a reason to refuse the vaccine is some next level stupid.
Whoa, this study showed that patients visiting their doctor after a flu patient are more likely to get the flu. Lingering virus in the exam room?https://twitter.com/JuliaRaifman/status/1450479527340171276 …
The argument here is “natural immunity” is best. So he got it & stuffed himself with every snake oil solution he could Google along with a far less proven experimental antibody treatment that costs over a thousand bucks compared to a free miracle vaccine. Because that’s natural!https://twitter.com/JasonSCampbell/status/1450153630112403456 …
Nobody’s first choice is a requirement. We all wish people were adult enough to take minor small steps for the good of the whole. But unlike most of the world, where 90% of people gratefully get vaccinated, this isn’t true here. 12/
Sinclair's Sharyl Attkisson, a longtime antivax crank, uses Colin Powell's death to attack vaccines; her "research" doesn't mention that Powell had multiple myeloma/blood cancer that affected his ability to fight infectionspic.twitter.com/yPXcbg7TZJ
Colin Powell's immune system was weakened by treatment for multiple myeloma, his family said. People with multiple myeloma are at greater risk of developing severe Covid-19. Vaccines are also likely to be less effective in these patients.https://nyti.ms/3aMfrGT
