Agreed.    Folks should pay careful attention to what the Israelis are doing in light of the Delta and other variants keeping in mind the bio-tech and pharma-tech expertise within the country.

seems a bit of a jump...
less than 60% of Israel pop is vaccinated.
and cases only ticked up slightly.
i would go back to my point below about unvaccinated folks not protecting themselves, and others.... and now Israel is bringing back mask requirements indoors, which probably is smart.

Age and risk group are also factors for the unvaccinated.  With roughly only 15% of the Ohio population over 65, those at high risk have more than likely been vaccinated which I would think would also be most people over 50.  I'm gonna guess that most of that 51% is the younger, less at risk adults and also children which would also skew the number. And 10% of the total population or 1.1 million have been infected and recovered.  These would also be less likely to be vaccinated.

All irrelevant (hand-waving) to your assertion that in your "local reality" the still unvaccinated have no intention of getting vaccinated:

It's still (more) BS. Let's see the numbers in a month...
 
So here we are one month later ...  people are not rushing to get vaccinated in a mostly democratic party populated county ...

Standalone vaccination clinics are popping up like mushrooms.  The incentives are having very little affect.  

The Cuyahoga County number is now 53.55%. 

Statewide it is 48.16% in our purple state.

Walking around Coors field yesterday (All Star game and all that).
About 70% of the population have been vaccinated, 
yet I only see maybe 5%-10% of the people walking around, in the stadium wearing a mask.

The drops led to considerable chest-thumping among vaccine advocates and the media. “UK eager for a big reopening thanks to vaccine success,” the Associated Press wrote on May 14.

“Israel to end COVID-19 restrictions after vaccine success,” Reuters parroted nine days later.

Unfortunately, the good news didn’t last. At the beginning of June, Covid cases started to rise in both Israel and Britain. And in the last three weeks, cases have soared, rising 15-fold since mid-May in the United Kingdom.

...

Now advocates are trying to minimize the significance of the fact that vaccinated people are becoming infected by arguing that they are not being hospitalized or dying.

That theory is also falling apart. The number of people hospitalized with severe Covid in Israel has more than doubled since late June. And an Israeli government advisor acknowledged July 5 that more than half of serious Covid cases were occurring in “fully vaccinated” people. (https://tinyurl.com/25skj7u9)

I don't know anyone who had a negative impact from the vaccine, other than a couple days of bad flu symptoms. In fact, I've heard the opposite; certain people with chronic conditions noticed improvement with their symptoms. 
These guys are trying to make the case it could be dangerous, and that we are not paying attention, or worse censoring those who might have been hurt - the latter I do believe is possible, as it already occurs with patients struggling with other chronic diseases/conditions. As to the latter point and any role the CDC might have...I don't find it to be a conspiracy, but rather a reflection of the more conservative approach the CDC might take in evaluating data, adverse events, and treatment options.  It is naive to assume the vaccines are riskless - they are not, but so far there doesnt seem to be a lot of evidence to assume the risk is particularly high, and certainly not anywhere as high as COVID.

As of July 01, wearing masks in BC is no longer mandatory.

In our local grocery store, employees must still wear masks.  I guesstimated that almost 60% of customers are still wearing masks.   Most of those not wearing masks strike me as being in not so great health and vulnerable.

I found myself thinking that I am not wearing the mask for me — tested positive early April, asymptomatic, 2nd messenger vaccine jab received 25 June, good set of lungs — and perhaps if others — who are vulnerable — do not seem to care, why should I care?

Elsewhere I read commentary to the effect that concerns over the Delta variant are "fearmongering".     The secular priest in me wants to keep wearing the mask indoors; the "why should I give a fuck if you don't give a fuck" in me wants to stop wearing the mask indoors.

Sign me:   Confused in wildfire country.

I am vaccinated, if that was directed at me personally, but in any case it appears that the vaccinated still get covid and still pass it around. They just don't get as sick or die in such great numbers. So.....vaccination alone is not going to do it. I think the Biden plan is to make 250,000 covid deaths per year seem normal - thanks to the unvaccinated - but in reality thanks to mingling without masks.

This isn't just about states....it's the whole damn planet.  We should care about getting vaccines to everyone before a possible variant requires us to start over with different vaccines.  It could be India or Indiana...but every day we all act like everything is fixed (before it is) is another day at risk.

Part of me is beyond caring at this point...if Texans want to kill off a few Texans, I'm not gonna stop em...but in the process, they might kill me, which I'll confess to caring a bit more about.
