We are only going to cover the questions today and we are pretty sure we do not have to explain why.
Question from @KevinCTV-- there are 1000s of unclaimed 1st dose appts from AHS; can you open 2nd doses early?

Hinshaw--we are looking at it but leaving availability for ppl who don't have 1st doses yet.
Kevin--Do you think there are still people who want 1st doses but didn't get them yet?

Hinshaw--people do things for different reasons and don't do other things for other different reasons.

Thanks for clearing that up.
Julia from Global asks the same question because it would be nice to have an answer.

Nice try Julia.
Julia follow up--What are you doing to control the B1617 outbreaks in hospital and make sure there aren't any more.

Hinshaw--the same thing as we did before because we did so good.
Globe and mail--How concerned are you about big events in stage 3. Reporter has hard time getting the word "stampede" cuz who can actually believe anybody is even f-ing saying that.

Hinshaw--Stampede is outdoors so nothing bad is going to happen.
Follow up--are you worried about people coming from other provinces for events when one dose only gives 30% protection against delta variant?

Hinshaw--well people who miss their friends from other provinces will do it indoors so whatever happens isn't stampede's fault
Next Q--Even countries with high % with 2 doses are seeing delta variants going up. Are you worried about that?

Hinshaw--yah but they aren't getting that sick and we have to balance ALL the risks of health measures because people get sick from not going to the stampede u know
follow up--R value is going up, did you expect that?

Hinshaw--as long as it is below 1 cases are declining so it doesn't really matter if it goes up except if it goes higher than 1. Also smaller numbers are smaller.
Danielle question-- Edmonton zone med staff association asked mayors of Cgy Edm to keep mask bylaw even after 70% have 1 dose because 1 dose doesn't protect enough against delta variant. What do you think?

Hinshaw--yah ok but also natural immunity helps.
Hinshaw also says just because the regulations go away doesn't mean people stop being careful.
[Kinda of like the backwards of that sky palace shit]
Jessie Global--How will variant screening play a role in the reopening especially with delta?

Hinshaw--Well people get 2 phone calls when we tell them they got COVID and we still have measures in place and everybody has to work together and also I am not going to answer your Q.
Andrea--Do you confirm there is a drop in the demand for 1st dose vaccine?

Hinshaw says it has slowed but it hasn't stopped and they are going to do more drop ins.

Andrea doesn't ask a follow up because why bother.

Jason starts this press conference saying he wants to celebrate going to Stage 2. Then he puts up the most useless slide we have ever seen. Image
He says thanks for getting vaccinated and "welcome to Stage 2". You can now go to your favorite restaurants except Bottega 104 which is only open when it is not supposed to be in order to serve boring assholes breaking rules.
Jason says 67.8% of all Albertans have got their 1st dose which is basically 70% so we can pretty much open Stage 3 because of the new math curriculum.

Jason Kenney starts off the presser with his heartfelt condolences to over the families of over 2000 Albertans who died because of his incompetence.
He says there is a race between the variants and the virus and the variants are winning.

[Actually the wild type virus isn't losing either. YOU are Jason you stupid joystick.]
Jason coughs and says "spring allergies" so you don't think he was invisible over easter weekend because he had COVID. It was because he is incompetent.

Second question from Rick Bell: "Quite bluntly, what is your reaction [Hinshaw] to the white hot anger of Albertans about what's happened in the past few days and Naheed Nenshi is really bad too."

Tyler says he's not asking for forgiveness because the UCP got 1M votes.
CMOH says she understands why Albertans are angry but we're all so tired and so we should be compassionate with the people who went on vacation?

Tyler comes back to say thank you for sacrifices which was a better answer than the CMOHs. wtf.
Third question: why are you bragging about using only 56% vaccines. Isn't the goal higher.

Tyler: we're celebrating the hard work of the HCWs
