Re: 2021 Tour Rumors/Status

Good grief. Ya'll can't be serious thinking we're having concerts this year. Once I heard the word "variant" I cancelled all I could and got refunds.

    Except there’s been variants going back to last summer and none of them have been shown the vaccines to be ineffective.

    Sadly, I don’t have any expectation or belief that there will be any shows through to and including this fall.

    Re: 2021 Tour Rumors/Status

    NYTimes published this interactive graph article a few days ago that shows various changes and how it will effect the point at which herd immunity becomes possible. most of them show that, when including people who have already been infected, herd immunity should happen around mid summer. there are changes that could push that off to early fall, and changes that could speed it up to late spring. i think if vaccine rollout continues without any hiccups, and more people come around to the idea of getting it, which seems to be happening, venues will want to try to have something happen by the end of the summer. i imagine the sports leagues will be pushing to have full stadiums and arenas for that time frame as well. enter at your own risk if you're not vaccinated, or require proof of vaccine to enter.

    Wish I would remember to revisit this very moment in posting when we are about July 4 and the trackers and stats are now focusing on individual "variants" that we will eventually be told require a booster have postponed everything until we get it. And I'm sure it will take 9 months to come up with the booster.

    The media is trying to milk as much out of this variant business as they can. Yes, there are different variants, but the vaccine is supposed to work on all of them, with varying degrees of success. It’s something that will have to be tweaked with as we go forward, similar to the flu shot. The news of these variants does not scare me, but the media and governments responses to them absolutely does.

    Perhaps those who think that we're going to reach herd immunity by Memorial Day should be sending letters and e-mails to DMB Management, telling them, and including all the articles predicting it, while explaining that it's probably safe to go ahead with the shows as scheduled.

    Well you strike me as the kind of cool person that will set a reminder in your iPhone calendar.

    And even if that were true, you don’t need to “come up with a booster”—a booster is just an additional dose of the same vaccine.
