700,000 and counting

As a child, I got all the shots required. Measles, Smallpox, Polio, and I don't know what else. Granted the Polio vaccine was in a sugar cube, but I'll take sweets any way I can get them. I'm 75 years old now and I've had both Covid Vaccine shots and plan to get the booster when my 6 month waiting time is up. I also get a Flu shot every year with this years coming on the 23rd of this month. 

I've suffered no ill affects from any of those vaccinations and there is nothing wrong with me from the recent Covid vaccine shots (although some of you probably think there is). 

Yesterday, the first day of October, 2021, deaths in the United States passed 700,000 deaths from Covid 19.  

Deaths passed 600,000 on June 14th, 2021. That's just 3 1/2 months ago. Yes, I'm keeping track. 

Of the 100,000 deaths between 6/14 & 10/1, 70% were unvaccinated. Those vaccinated people who died with breakthrough infections, most caught the virus from an unvaccinated person.

Florida suffered by far the most deaths of any state during that period, with the virus killing about 17,000 residents since the middle of June. Texas was second with 13,000 deaths. The two states account for 15% of the country’s population, but more than 30% of the nation’s death. 

Yup, Florida with a Governor who refuses to mandate masks and vaccinations for school children. Nice guy, huh? You can bet he'll be running for President in 2024. 

I know you're probably tired of reading about this on this blog, but I fear for all of you. So get vaccinated and I'll shut up. 


  1. Mark
    You have individuals in this country, who think that the vaccine is more harmful to them than the virus. No amount of trying to convince these individuals to get vaccinated will change their minds. Why do I say this because I have a nephew who has that mindset, and I have given up on getting him and his family to get vaccinated!
    I compare all these individuals who will not get vaccinated to the movie script statement in Forrest Gump---"Stupid is as Stupid Does"

  2. Ok. Fine. I had Covid and got my two shots. Am I good now? Or do I have to get that dang booster shot too??? Ugh... So tired of all of this. Seriously. I definitely don't want to have to wear a mask for the rest of my life! Well, it would hide wrinkles... =)
