  • When Africans asked for COVID shots, they didn't get them. Now they don't want them | Reuters

    It's noisy inside the Mamprobi clinic in Accra as kids clamber over their mothers while they wait to get their measles vaccines. Outside, an area reserved for COVID-19 shots is empty. A health worker leans back in his chair and scrolls on a tablet.

        • The Pig Bar-B-Q says it all....

          Amid backlash from political rivals, medical professionals and senior federal government officials alike, DeSantis on Monday morning reaffirmed his decision not to preorder newly authorized COVID-19 vaccines or offer them at state health departments.

          “We are not going to have any programs where we’re trying to jab 6-month-old babies with mRNA,” he said during a news conference at The Pig Bar-B-Q in Callahan. “We still have not ordered it. We’re not going to order it.”

          Florida is the only U.S. state that did not pre-order COVID-19 vaccines for kids under 5 before the Food and Drug Administration authorized them. After the FDA granted an emergency use authorization on Friday, the state allowed health care providers to place orders for the vaccines, something providers in other states had been able to do since June 3.

          • For anyone not aware "the jab" is a term used by anti-vaxxers as a negative term. It was used in this sense by DeSantis and not unexpectedly.

                  Until COVID, with 40 years of clinical medicine going back to 1980, I had never heard the term "jab" used to refer to an injection or shot of any type.

                    I heard it in Britain way back when, not here.

                    • Yes, "jab" is the word most commonly used in the UK. I think for most people here, "shot" is more associated with whisky, vodka, tequila etc.
