Oh, and those who are vaccinated will very likely not need to worry about symptoms, ox levels, or where to seek treatment.

Don't worry, the tests won't be wasted. Since about 1/3 of the US population is still unvaccinated, there will be plenty of Corona mutations to go around.

I am absolutely certain the FBI/CIA and Federal Government will not do anything bad with all the DNA samples they are receiving and recording from all the willing participants in the "How can we get everyone's DNA voluntarily contest?"

Why was there no test panic last year when the fear of the day was the killer delta?

We went from little testing and long vaccine lines in 2020/2021 and now with almost 50% vaccinated long, long testing lines and now authorizing 8 per month.

Totally and completely ridiculous!

I have 5 members of my family who are vaccinated, but still tested positive for Covid. Three were mild cases, but 2 of them are struggling 13 days into it. Oh, by the way, their O2 SATS dipped into the high 80's and low 90's.

What makes you think the mutations are coming from only the unvaccinated? Anyone can get it and spread it. Has nothing to do with whether or not those that test positive show symptoms or not, or are vaccinated or not. There have been asymptomatic since the beginning of this.

I would say those who test positive and are fully vaxed (with booster) are more likely to have mild or no symptoms....are significantly less likely to need to be hospitalized or die.

Like it or not the unvaccinated are the more vulnerable to more serious outcomes.

This ongoing debate to vax or not has approached the flu level of support or not. Funny there is not a lot of dialogue about those vaccinations. Obviously no advantage for agenda promotion.

Reimbursed (from retail store) tests aren't available to Medicare recipients but I wonder if you have a "medicare advantage plan" they will cover it.

Latest test results are almost a social talking point now, just like the weather.
You are not considering the government mandates being forced by OSHA if you happen to be "unvaccinated". That requires a weekly test. Supposedly not to be enforced until Feb 9, if not affected by the Supreme Court.

Default Where do you get them?

That's terrific. But you have to find one to use one. All the pharmacies, Walmart, Publix, etc. are sold out. If you get one, it's on a catch as catch can basis. Pretty disgraceful so far as I am concerned.

It’s free line.
