    Yeah I get that but all of us at home right now and doing everything online for pick up. The chances of me coming into contact with Covid are low - non existent right now. I can do this for a few more weeks until Pfizer is available to me. Why take a risk with AZ if I don’t have to?

    I saw the leaked email this am and doubted it of course. But the numbers were bang on so I guess it was legitimate. The email also listed continual outbreaks attached to schools (14 in CZ and 2 in EZ). I wonder why they left that part out in the official release?

    You’re likely only right because of the rural nature of NS but the laxness in your approach is part of what got India into the problem they’re now in.

    As a co-worker in New Delhi told me yesterday, “I’m afraid to leave my house. The vaccine is available but I’m afraid to get in the queue as I might get sick.”

    Isn't your government telling you to take the first shot you are offered?
    Your boy Justin is going to so disappointed in you Boots :(
    I got my Pfizer shot back on April 17 but still have to wait 4 months for the second so the first will be useless by then. Good thing Justin bought so many doses we are going to need them

    I guess I'm waiting for the next whatever the hell is available. I missed it on Friday because I was busy, but I saw it was booked solid by noon.

    Just out of curiosity I checked right now...... Az is fully booked across the board.

    Today's press release

    Nova Scotia is reporting 133 new cases of COVID-19 today, May 2.

    There are 117 cases in Central Zone, nine cases in Eastern Zone, one case in Northern Zone and six cases in Western Zone.

    There is community spread in Central Zone. The Eastern, Northern and Western Zones continue to be closely monitored for community spread.

    As reported April 30, due to the volume of testing in the province, the Nova Scotia Health Authority lab is experiencing a backlog. There is also a delay in public health’s case data entry into Panorama.

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 822 active cases of COVID-19. There are 34 people in hospital, including six in ICU.

    On May 1, Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 15,832 tests.

    I really don’t think these numbers are really reliable with the huge backlog. I was tested again Friday evening at 6:05 and got a robo call about an hour ago with negative results. I wasn’t expecting any word until early next week at least. Not sure where the backlog is at and how they are working through them priority wise. Also with today’s 822 active that’s another what 24 recoveries. That makes a little over 70 recoveries in the past 3 days. Again I’d love to know how they consider someone recovered

    Until they say the backlog is resolved the numbers may as well be random imo. I'm assuming they are processing tests in order they've been done but if they are backlogged how are people getting tested back so quickly?

    My sister was telling me how they were asking anyone who works in the hospital in Truro to go down to work nights in Halifax to work through the backlog - as long as you have a Bachelor of Science, you qualify. My sister is a dietitian.

    Totally agree on the numbers, and I think the % rate has been pretty close yesterday and today, will be interesting to see what tomorrow brings and if it works out to be the same %+ again.
    Its weird reading through SM posts, you see people getting them back in 12 hours, and others waiting on day 6 now for their results. I think there is a prioritization happening for close contacts, exposure locations, or symptomatic etc. Which there totally should be with things being the way they are. Just hoping they dropped the appointments at primary assessment centres so they can get back on track

    I guess it'd make sense to deprioritize the random tests

    They've been pretty good at dropping it weekly so my guess would be around the 17th.

    Awesome news on the 50+ group. That really makes me think that my group (45+) will be in the next week or two.

    I wouldn't be surprised around here if instead of, "You want fries with that?" it turns into "you want a vaccine with that?"

    It was a home game for the Sounders (MLS) last night and you could get a shot at the stadium at the game.

    1502 cases. Kenney is diverting vaccines to us. Also lowering the eligible age to 18. Hopefully that helps.

    Didn't realize how bad it's gotten there. Apparently Alberta has the highest infection rate in North America right now :eek3:

    It's pretty fucking bad. New restrictions are coming today. We don't have much left they can clamp down on other than to shut everything down for a couple weeks.
