We need to remind people to wait for ~14 days after the 2nd dose for full protection to kick in. But it's wild to tell vaccinated people that they shouldn't hang out w/ other vaccinated people, or with people who are very unlikely to become seriously ill.
@thehowie I mean, I can see a case for strictness when there are very bad local outbreaks (as in the UK right now), as least until we find out how much vaccines reduce transmission. But I'd make that the message then and emphasize this is only true on a short-term, emergency basis.
Our last liveblog of Trump's presidency (well, unless he pulls off a Grover Cleveland) and our first liveblog of Biden's presidency:
Wait, so Trump not only rejects stimulus funds that would probably have helped his re-election chances, but *also* does so in a way to make sure that he personally will take blame for it?
Gotta be honest: On a night like tonight, I'm still pretty pissed at those journalists and news organizations which treated Hillary Clinton's email server as a matter of apocalyptic importance.
