The delta variant is now the dominant COVID-19 variant in the US. It accounts for 83% of US cases of coronavirus and is about 60% more contagious than the first variant. Fortunately, the research shows the vaccine is effective against this strain, unfortunately, not enough people are getting the shot. This week we talk about the reasons for vaccine hesitancy, its effect on the current pandemic, and the best way to help convince more people to get shots in arms. We share our opinions on season 2 of 'Never Have I Ever' (Netflix), 'Gunpowder Milkshake' (Netflix), and talk about 'Ted Lasso', and The Twilight Saga.
Yes. The Pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna are leading the race to provide a vaccine to the world. Both companies announced that its vaccines are over 94.5% effective in preventing the coronavirus. How did we get two potential vaccines so effective and safe in such a quick amount of time? As we say in Philadelphia - trust the scientific process. This week we discuss that process and the technology that got us to this point and why the vaccine can and should be trusted. We also share our thoughts on the Hulu movie Run, the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special, Fisherman's Friends, and the finale of The Sopranos.
