covid 19-you may need this vaccine passport


we are not out of the woods yet
things have plateaued in the us with a now 7% uptick in cases nationally
some states are worse than others

this last week the texas longhorn football team had to cancel its outdoor spring football because several of their players took a trip to florida for spring break
bringing back the virus to the football team
several of the springbreaker football players tested positive

spring break may be the catalyst for this next surge if it occurs

its still a race of the variants vs the vaccines
28% of americans have had at least one vaccine
we need about 50% more vaccinated 
on friday they gave 3.3 million shots
at that rate another 100 million will be vaccinated this next month
here in california and texas anyone over 16 can get the vaccine

remember its the younger folks who are mostly spreading this virus
many have no symptoms

last night i watched a 2 hour special on cnn where they interviewed the top experts involved in the covid response last year

they were candid in their responses
here is a link to an article reviewing what all the experts these pandemic doctors said

basically the problem with this virus is its mainly spread by folks mostly younger folks who have little or no symptoms
thats what made this virus spread so fast

its important we vaccinate those over 16 folks if we want to slow this down

every day when we see those 1000 americans die 
they died while we had a prevention that could have kept them from getting sick and dying
each death should not have happen

one threat to us all is brazil
their mismanagement of their covid 19 is probably the worst in the world
the variant there the brazilian one is a bad one
the vaccine may not work as well on that one
its here in the us now
it will only get worse here

here is a picture of my covid 19 vaccine record
since that picture was taken it has been updated to show that i got both my shots
i made a photo front and back of my card
i made copies for my medical records file and my important papers file
it sits next to my will
a copy will be kept in my wallet

i plan to laminate it 
place it inside my passport

it will be my covid 19 vaccine passport
it may be needed to
go to concerts
attend college
go to church
go to a long term care facility to visit or stay
go to restaurants
visit folks in a hospital

when the liability issues start up from all the lawsuits that are coming
this vaccine passport may be even more important

when a digital vaccine passport becomes available and is widely accepted 
i plan on adding it to my cellphone

until this pandemic is under control
we still need to 

wear a mask even though we are vaccinated
wash our hands
avoid large gatherings
keep a safe distance

do your part get your vaccination
help protect the rest of america
