To be honest, I’m not all that concerned that the COVID vaccine I took last Friday might have a tracking device in it. For one thing, it doesn’t, because that would be bonkers. For another, I can’t fathom who the hell would want to track me. I can just imagine...

Today is the day I stopped stalling.

In a new PSA featuring every (adult) former president, the COVID-19 vaccine takes center stage. The message: Don’t be a dick. Get the vaccine. Or at least that was my takeaway.

J & J’s vaccination  global trial shows it to be 85% effective against developing severe Covid 19 and about 66% effective in preventing the disease altogether.
