Vaccines: Go Get ‘em

Governor Newsom announced on January 12th that anyone over 65 could get the COVID-19 vaccine. That is good news. Both Scripps Health and UCSD have begun to immunize older clients although appointments are filling up fast. Unfortunately, immunization of health care workers and nursing home residents is well behind schedule and vaccine supplies are running short, so the timing of exactly when all Del Mar seniors can get both vaccine doses remains uncertain.

Asymptomatic – you have the virus but you don’t know it because you don’t feel sick. Up to 50% of people with COVID-19 fall into this category.

Why wear masks after vaccination – you may shed virus a few days after you are vaccinated even if you feel fine, so wear a ask to protect your family and friends.

EDITORIAL: Agenda ‘21
Let’s Talk

Year 2021 promises to be a very active year in Del Mar and well beyond. Many of our challenges, not unique to our small corner of earth, are often intertwined with much larger issues and jurisdictions.

The Sandpiper wants to stimulate conversations within our community about these issues with an emphasis on larger frameworks, including history and actions that affect us directly and indirectly. We believe there are many core values that are embraced by most of us but sometimes get lost too easily in the noise of campaigns and the formalities of governmental processes.

San Diego and north county hospitals still have extremely high COVID19 patient numbers, and Scripps Memorial - La Jolla hospital alone in mid-January 2021 has continuously had a census of over 40 patients on a ventilator and over 100 inpatients battling COVID19 pneumonia.
