Re: vaccine, I've said: "I'm on a waiting list, probably others need it more.' Then @GregAbbott_TX decided to kill again. So it's the vaccine battle to the death I expected under Trump. With 5 variants here & worse coming, I'm signed up to get the shot 2 hours away on Thursday.
As of now, the Senate Budget Committee is the least effective in the new congress. - couldn’t get a nominee out of committee - delayed progress on COVID relief trying to jam thru a min wage hike that was never going to fly - failed to have a cogent Plan B when the latter failed
Only 6.5% of TX has been fully vaccinated, yet our governor decided to rescind the statewide mask mandate & capacity limits on businesses. In TX, the seven-day avg. of new coronavirus deaths remains above 200. Once again, @GovAbbott chooses corporations over people. #VoteHimOut
Biden says he’s using federal authority to direct every state to prioritize teachers & school staff for vaccines, thru the fédéral pharmacy vaccination program Says he wants every teacher & school staffer to receive their first shot by the end of March
Across the country, over thirty states have taken steps to prioritize educators for vaccination. Today, President Biden is directing remaining states to do the same — with the goal of every educator receiving at least one shot by the end of March.
Today, President Biden announced a breakthrough collaboration between Johnson & Johnson, Merck, and the federal government to ramp up vaccine production. Because of these efforts, we will have enough vaccines for every American by the end of May–two months earlier than expected.
Texas is 45th out of 50 in vaccine distribution but Gov Abbot says to hell with science, its time to open Texas 100%. All this while reeling from the devastation of an energy crisis also caused by ignoring science. RIP Texas should not be trending yet here we are.
Big news requires big answers. The doses of the AZ vaccine we will get this week expire on April 2 according to multiple sources. Future doses will expire in June. Meaning provinces need to rush this vaccine out even as federal advisory group says limit use to under 65. #cdnpoli
Less than 9% of Democrats' spending plan would go to directly fight COVID-19. Less than 1% to vaccinations. This isn’t a recipe to safely reopen America. It’s what Democrats promised almost a year ago: Taking advantage of the crisis to check off unrelated liberal policies.
.@VP Harris, there were 74+ million poor & low-income women in the U.S. before COVID. You have risen to this position for such a time as this. In this moment, the weight of history is on your shoulders. You can make an impact on tens of millions of lives. #FightFor15
A survey of Austrians found that 65% of the country feels that COVID-19 restrictions are worse than the virus itself. In Austria, restaurants have been closed since before Christmas and will not reopen until AT LEAST March 27th. A negative test is needed just to get a haircut.
In the coming days, families across the country will face the first anniversary of the passing of their loved ones to COVID. They deserve to feel seen & I'll be posting regular "One Year Ago" tributes at @FacesOfCOVID. Would be grateful if you shared. Thank you!
.. @Dev_Fadnavis Dada was 🔛🔥 today! Farmers Electricity Bills Tenders Jhol Police Dept Corruption IAS IPS Transfers Mandir COVID Governor's Plane Insult Schools & Colleges Hospitals MVA's Crimes MVA's Scams Celebrity Tweets Probe.. Phew.. धारेवर धरलं 😅 #DevendraNeDhoDala
After generations of flat wages, COVID is a grease fire burning up what's left of family finances. Millions are out of work. Over 1k die daily. But we're getting an endless loop of Larry Summers lecturing us on why it's responsible to let Americans suffer. Newsflash: It's not.
On this day one year ago, Boris Johnson -turned up at his first Cobra meeting - after skipping 5 of them -and said: ‘We’re very well prepared. We’re in a position to take steps that will be necessary to contain spread and protect the most vulnerable’ UK #COVID deaths: 122,953
More than half of Republican voters are unsure if they’ll take the coronavirus vaccine. Meanwhile Trump gets the vaccine in secret. If Trump publicly endorsed it, millions of his cult would follow and accept it. But he still can’t do the right thing for the country, ever...
Before the end of this year Get your Hepatitis B vaccine Get a pap smear if you're a woman Get vaccinated against cervical cancer Do a thorough medical check up If you're above 40, get prostate cancer screening Have plans for your health. Prayer is not enough.
Johnson & Johnson vaccine authorized Saturday. Signed and shipped Sunday. Arrived at UPS today and headed to states today Monday. At vaccination site tomorrow. Thank you to everyone at every step of the way for the care & the urgency.
Sen. Ron Wyden, who chairs the Finance Committee, told me he’s pushing to include in the covid relief bill an extension of jobless benefits for an additional month so they can expire in September rather than in August when Congress is on recess
Wolf Blitzer ends his show with stories of people who died from COVID. He says the traditional Jewish prayer, "May they rest in peace & may their memory be a blessing." His parents were Holocaust survivors, he was born in a DP camp, Nazis killed all his other family. He gets it.
State media, who in my opinion are PMO mouthpieces, are out beating the drum for an early election today. With the worst joblessness, deficit & vaccine rates in the G7, we should be talking about Trudeau’s resignation, not a promotion.
Still thinking about Canadian health officials telling parents to put their children in solitary confinement for two weeks if they’re exposed to covid. It’s just unconscionable. Parents who do that should lose their children. And I don’t say that lightly.
Don't forget: -- those who said India will see lakhs and lakhs of Covid deaths -- those who said India will be worst performing economy -- those who mocked vaccine manufactured in India. -- those who mocked vaccine developed in India. We proved them all wrong.
We’re making progress to beat this virus: - More than 50 million shots in arms - Weekly vaccine shipments of 14.5 million doses - New vaccination centers around the country Get vaccinated when it’s your turn. It’s safe, and it will save lives.
Breaking: Johnson & Johnson is currently working on a booster to help its Covid-19 vaccine deal with coronavirus variants, CEO Alex Gorsky tells me. “While we’re encouraged and we’re confident in the current vaccine...you’ve always got to be preparing for the future,” he said.
Good talking to @SwedishPM Stefan Löfven on our bilateral relations, #Covid19 equitable vaccine distribution as well as national and regional security. Ethio-Swedish ties have persevered since the 1940s and will continue strengthened.
