On the subject of vaccines, I will also tell a story of why Vaccines are required. This one is about my oldest son. When you first have a baby, there is a schedule to follow for vaccines at 2 mos, 4 mos, 6 mos. etc. The first vaccine is DTaP for Whooping Cough, /1
My first child was 31/2 weeks old and contracted the Whooping Cough before his first Vaccine. He woke up coughing so bad, he was turning blue. We rushed him to the hospital and the doctor immediately could tell what it was, due to the seal like cough sound. My son /2
was too young for the Vaccine and probably contracted it from a young child when I was at the grocery store a week earlier. My son was put on full oxygen for 24 hours and tented with a humidifier so he could breath. He was sick for 2 1/2 weeks. It was horrible to watch /3
him struggle. He got through it. The 2 mos time came for his 1st of 3 doses over 6 mos, he got his Vaccine. Still not fully immunized, my son was still vulnerable. 4 weeks later, we were back in the hospital again, Whooping Cough...again /4.
Another two weeks went by and my son was feeling much better. 4 mos timeline for needle for Whooping Cough came up again, my son had his 2nd of 3 doses of this vaccine. He was doing well for 5 1/2 weeks and then it happened again, back to the hospital, on oxygen etc., /5
for 2 days he struggled to breath, I just wanted to see him get that last Vaccine so he would not have to keep fighting against this awful virus. At 6 months my son received his last of 3 doses for the Whooping Cough, two weeks later, he was fully immunized and never /6
suffered from it again, until he was 2 years old, this time he got it at daycare, his Vaccine wore off, we watched our son go through this 4 times, worrying each time if it would take his life. Once he got well we had him vaccinated again, this was the final time /7
he had to receive one until he was preteen. Vaccines do work, the diseases / viruses can be deadly. COVID is way more deadlier than the whooping cough but still can take a child’s life. Get your vaccine, it may save your life. /8
Incidence rates are highest among young children in countries where vaccination coverage is low. With approximately 400,000 deaths per year, pertussis remains one of the leading causes of death among non-immunized children, mainly in developing countries./9
Whooping Cough - Pertussis - Canada facts: /10

Without treatment, pertussis can last for weeks or months, and can cause brain damage or even death. It is most dangerous for children under 1 year old, especially if they are unvaccinated or under-vaccinated. It is important that you and your children receive all of your /11
vaccinations for protection of yourself and others. /12
Scientific studies suggest that up to 1 in 20 adults with a cough that lasts for more than 2 or 3 weeks may have pertussis. The severity of symptoms may vary in adults. Symptoms are often less severe in adults who have gained some protection against whooping cough from a /13
previous immunization or infection. /14

The COVID-Zero approach: Why Atlantic Canada excels at slowing the spread of COVID-19 /1

atlantic.ctvnews.ca/the-covid-zero… via @CTVAtlantic

"In the Atlantic region, we have largely gone with a COVID-Zero approach," says Susan Kirkland, head of the department of community health and epidemiology at Dalhousie University in Halifax. "Other provinces in Canada ... no longer have the luxury to do that."

There's no question the COVID-Zero strategy has worked for the Atlantic region, widely praised as a world leader in keeping the virus under control. Soon after the pandemic was declared in March 2020, the 4 provinces imposed some of the strictest lockdown rules

Generation X is the last generation to have the old timey childhood, but also moved into the digital age, we had hippie family members, rotary phones, 2 channels on TV, we respected our elders, we watched siblings smoke pot, we grew up with Gilligans Island and never had to /1
wear seatbelts. We rode in the back of a truck with not a care in the world. We were lively and a little wild, we played with a Rubik’s cube, we had train sets and drove go karts, we would go sledding and someone always got injured. We took chances. We wore pastel and /2
other clothes that glowed in the dark. Let’s talk about the wild 80’s hair, 70’s bell bottoms and those crazy mullets 🤣. We learned to drive a stick and most of us could drive a dirt bike. We watched SNL, SCTV, Kids in the Hall and SOAP. We were accepting and generous. /3
