I read recently that many people who received the 1st shot are not going back for the 2nd. I can only guess the 1st one made them ill in some way or they think they just don't need the 2nd. The governor of the state I live in dropped the mask mandate in early April. A large majority of local businesses I have visited since did not change. They have signs on their entry doors stating masks are required to enter. Most people in these places adhere to the policy, but not all. Some wear them just to get in the front door, then take them off.

What was that old saying about underestimating the American public?

One quotation, attributed to H. L. Mencken: "No one in the world, so far as I know - and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help - has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the plain people."

Carl Sagan, in Broca's Brain: Reflections on the Romance of Science made the following observation:

"Both Barnum and H. L. Mencken are said to have made the depressing observation that no one ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the American public. The remark has worldwide application. But the lack is not in intelligence, which is in plentiful supply; rather, the scarce commodity is systematic training in critical thinking."

In a couple hours I get my second jab.

I had covid last December and was seriously ill from it for the better part of a month and spent a few days in the hospital, but fortunately have recovered well. It's unclear given that whether I really need both shots, or whether the first show was really more like my second, but I'm definitely going to get the 2nd. I really don't want to have covid 19 again.

The Dutch government's invitation letter plays perfectly to our psychology:
"We have a vaccine ready for you. You don't have to take it, but it's free!"

Second yesterday.

Been totally wiped out with lethargy all day but no other obvious symptoms.

I was warned. It's in the "Very Common (may affect more than 1 in 10 people) ... feeling tired (fatigue) ..." category in the documentation I was given.
