VA seeing no difference in coronavirus vaccine reluctance based on race
Black veterans who are eligible for coronavirus vaccines are accepting them at rates similar to veterans of other races, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The department is working to track vaccine hesitancy as it works to vaccinate millions of veterans across the country. The data doesn’t show more reluctance for the vaccine among Black veterans — unlike the overall Black population in America.

“There’s less hesitancy among Black veterans than we feared,” VA Secretary Denis McDonough said on a call with reporters.
According to a study by the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation, one-third of Black adults in the United States said they didn’t plan to get vaccinated. The nonprofit cited barriers for the Black population, including ongoing racism and a legacy of mistreatment by the medical system.

As of last week, the VA was prioritizing vaccinations for veterans over age 75. About 25% of white VA patients over 75 had received coronavirus vaccines, while 28% of Hispanic veterans and 30% of Black veterans had received them, said Dr. Richard Stone, acting undersecretary for health.

The VA credits lack of hesitancy to the department’s outreach efforts. Before coronavirus vaccines became available, the VA held focus groups with veterans of color to determine what they needed to know before making the decision to be vaccinated, said Dr. Jane Kim, who leads the vaccine rollout at the department. Kim testified about the issue Wednesday before the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee.

“They told us they wanted the science,” Kim said. “They wanted to know it was safe and effective, and they wanted to talk to someone they trusted on their health care team.”
..
While the department isn’t seeing differences in vaccine hesitancy based on race, there is some indication that veterans in rural areas are more reluctant to receive it. Rural veterans have been vaccinated at lower rates than veterans in urban places. The VA is unsure whether rural veterans are hesitant to receive vaccines or if they’re facing barriers traveling to VA facilities where vaccines are available.

circumstance you are only able to receive the vaccine from Johnson and Johnson, you should feel free to do so for your safety and for the common good."
The statement, which was echoed in Burlington, went on to say that the decision to receive the vaccine is between an individual conscience and their health care provider, but that "in no way does the Church's position diminish the wrongdoing of those who decided to use cell lines from abortions to make vaccines."

Did the Bishop ever have a flu jab or travel immunisations?

The property owned by the catholic church is morally compromised. They gained all of it through violent conquest, extortion, blackmail and so on.

There is a path to redemption for the Church though, as this nice Jewish lady explains.

The risk of death from Covid-19 is about 10 times higher in countries where most of the population is overweight, according to a report released Wednesday by the World Obesity Forum.
Researchers found that by the end of 2020, global Covid-19 death rates were more than 10 times higher in countries where more than half the adults are overweight, compared to countries where fewer than half are overweight.
The team examined mortality data from Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and found that of 2.5 million Covid-19 deaths reported by the end of February, 2.2 million were in countries where more than half the population is overweight.

Not sure whether that shows true causation - it may be a correlation, with other underlying factors.

There is a clear causal link.

The organ systems most attacked by the virus (lungs, heart, blood vessels, kidneys) are already under a lot of stress and often damaged or at the brink of damage in obese people. Very easy to explain how obese people are harder hit by the virus. Also explains why men are hit harder. They also tend to have pre-existing damages in the heart and blood vessels.

1. No because Cunt claims that obese people are more prone to spread the virus which is probably not true. Quite the opposite.
2. Must be a very strong tree to hold my weight.
