Anyone else is bothered by the fact that Bertuzzi is not suspended by the team for essentially taking himself out of all games in Canada due to refusing the vaccine? But don't make this political. Whatever reasons he has not to get vaccinated is up to him but at the same time it is the requirement to do his job to the full extend. Sounds that the right thing to do is to have him suspended as much as I hate to suggest it.
Keep your shit in California
I'm vaxxed. I'm 50. I'm 20 pounds overweight (Almost every time you see someone die 50 and under, you look at their obit, and their 50-100 pounds overweight).
It made sense to me.
I also wanted to do my part to stop the spread.
It turns out, the vaccination doesn't stop the spread. It's still better than not v vaccination - but it's WAY less than 95 percent efficacy or whatever they advertised.
Something very weird is happening in Washtenaw County, where I live.
Our vaccination rate is 60.8 percent (including kids) or 69 percent for 16 and up.
Our vax rate hasn't changed much over the last 2 months.
But look at our vax vs unvax hospitalization numbers
Month - Vaxxed Hospitalizations - Unvaxxed - Partially- Vax Rate (16andup)
July. Vax 6 Unvax 17 Part 0 61
Aug. Vax 17 Unvax 35 Part 3 66
Sept. Vax 26 Unvax 39 Part 1 72
Oct. Vax 28 Unvax 19 Part 2 74
% of vaccinated public vs % of vaccinated hospitalizations
Mo - Hosp vs Public
July - 23% vs 61%
Aug, - 31% vs 66%
Sept. - 40% vs 72%
Oct - 57% vs 74%
You see what's happening here?
In July, a vax made it three times less likely you'd end up in the hospital.
In August. it was only two times.
Now we're in October, and the vax rate offers only 30 percent more protection than not.
This is exactly what happened in Israel, by the way.
So Tyler Bertuzzi can do whatever the fuck he wants, as far as I'm concerned.
