Has the Pandemic substantially impacted your life as a current or former cancer patient? Please post your stories; heartbreaking, frustrating, even uplifting.

If you post anything about treatments, cures, vaccinations, hospitalizations or deaths, please back it up with research from accepted, credible sources. Your Uncle's neighbor's third wife who posted a crazy conspiracy theory on Facebook is not a credible source.

Angry, passionate, sad are all acceptable, disrespectful is not.

Since the new year holiday weekend, the biggest increase in first doses in QC have been in the 5-11 age group (57% to 60% with first dose). It's not clear that the booze and weed mandate made a difference. The 18-39 group still at 89% with first dose in the same time period. There seemed to be a brief uptick in adult first doses after the threat of a tax on unvaccinated.

I would prefer adding the COVID vaccine to the list of vaccines mandated for school, healthcare systems, and large businesses . For kids, offer vaccinations for all eligible family members at the same time. United Airlines followed through on its vaccine mandate. They went from having one employee dying per week to 0 deaths in at least 8 weeks. Vaccine mandates are good for the bottom line.

Vaccinations alone aren't enough. We need to apply all NPIs.

It would really help if those in charge would stop blocking the public health tools that we know work.

Thanks, Beesie, for posting those results. Not surprising to see the correlation between lower executive function and vaccine resistance, especially here in the US. That, coupled with the anti vax propaganda and the deliberate misinformation campaign has made for a perfect storm here in the states.

Never thought I'd see something like this in my country. It's disheartening to say the least.

Here’s a Twitter account started by a parent in QC because the provincial government has not been transparent. They’ve added CO2 monitors to some schools with no improvements to ventilation/filtration. I won’t be surprised if his assumption comes true. (2633 ppm is too high.)

I think the recent increases in first/second doses in young kids and third doses for 50+ is the realization that the QC government is trying to get everyone infected.

This is another one. http://covidtests.gov. It's suppose to go active tomorrow but I just checked it and it looks like it's active now.

Both will ship tests later in the month.

Sorry for two posts but I couldn’t get both links to post in one

Edited for spelling.

Covidtests.gov works 😁. I just put in orders for each of my semi-adult kids households as well as mine. Unfortunately 4 tests doesn't go very far in a house of 9 college girls. I suppose it's a start.

I heard on the news it went live today. I guess they were worried the site could crash if everyone tried at the same time tomorrow.
