    Derek, very happy for you that you have received your first shot. Curious though as to why you make the following comments:
    ‘I am continuing to wear masks when I???m out in public, except when I???m walking around outdoors without any other people close by (and I???m fortunate enough to live in an area where that???s not hard to do). But even after the second vaccination, I???m still not yet going to be hopping into crowded stores, going to the movies, or hanging out in any airports or train stations just yet.’
    I would have thought that once vaccinated, life would return to normal, no masks needed, meeting up with friends and family, shopping in crowded stores wouldn’t be a concern etc.
    Seems that you don’t trust that the vaccine will offer you protection? Or am I missing something that you may want to share in your next blog.
    I am based in the UK where about 400 people, under the age of 60 with no underlying health conditions, have died in the last year with Covid-19. This is from a population of about 50 million people under the age of 60.
    My view as an under 60 year old, vaccinate all those who are vulnerable, based on all we have learned this year, and leave others to make an informed choice. Good health to you!
