from all the different stuff, seems if you get vaccine you have much lower chance of getting ill from the virus. much lower chance already if you're younger and no preexisting medical conditions.
Then there are variants.
There may or may not be other therapies to help prevent & treat virus, and prevent mutations.
If you get the vaccine or not, you can still carry and transmit the virus.

^^^ Agree with some of the stuff. Thing is, a lot of what they're telling us keeps changing.

Glad to see the double masking idea never really caught on. I only hope people wear the one mask properly. That might help.

“While Maine has a relatively small minority population, the extraordinarily high poverty levels for blacks, African Americans, and Native Americans are cause for great concern,” said Maine Center for Economic Policy (MECEP) Executive Director Garrett Martin. “In the case of blacks and African Americans, the poverty rate exceeds every other state by a wide margin. The finding that one out of every two black and African American Mainers lives in poverty is shocking.”

Fauci needs to retire. The guy has fallen in love with being the center of attention. He's like a drug addict who doesn't want to give up the "drug." If you've got the shot or had COVID, no need to mask. If you're afraid of getting COVID, wear a mask, but don't ask others to do so. Let freedom ring!
