Nine new people that won’t collect their Social Security Benefit. If 1 million have died times 24,000 would be a 24 Billion savings? This may have a positive affect at making Social Security solvent and should be factored in before raising the annual premiums. Just a math issue.


I am vaccinated and had a booster shot and still got Covid – likely omicron. No one in my household, nor my daughter who I had lunch with while symptomatic and before I knew I had it, tested positive. My symptoms were quite mild, like a cold. Maybe ir was dumb luck, or perhaps the vaccine might help after all.


A lot of maybe’s and might’s. Omicron in itself is relatively mild if you do not have any comorbidities. I doubt it was dumb luck, you probably are not in a high risk category.


Booyah! Your done with it! Excellent immunity, imho.

Just wanted to thank CalCoast for publishing this data. Best round up of the information I can find for the county.


I wish SLO County would publish vaccinated vs. unvaccinated hospitalization rates. Here’s recent data from Washington State:


The County website states:

65.4% county residents are not fully vaccinated

78.5% Covid hospitalizations are not fully vaccinated

74.8% Covid deaths are not fully vaccinated

Go here:

and scroll down to “Vaccine status of Covid -19 cases”

The last 7 days average cases is 688


Whoa! Did not know that the data was available. Excellent info. The State dashboard link is excellent as well. Thanks Say for sharing.


Thanks for the link and the data. However, I suspect these cases include the pre omicron variants (delta) etc. I’ll bet the results are different with a breakdown of of omicron only because while it is more contagious it is also less deadly.

Colorado, the UK, Denmark and others are “officially” putting the pandemic in the rear view mirror.

I suspect California is getting there but will be last.


” I suspect” Tell us more Dr derasmus……….

Also do you smoke the cbd bongs before the horse paste or after?
