Dr. Anderson: COVID-19 is on the run

COVID-19 is on the run. That is good news. There is a caution with that. When the enemy is retreating and you can still see the dust trail, then the threat still remains. 

There is plenty of vaccine available and plenty of people who could receive the vaccine. How do we get them in the same room?  Here are some things we are going to be doing in my office.  

We are going to try a variant on the concept of BOGO. Yes, buy one and get one free but the first one is free and four weeks later the second one is free. If that does not work we can do “couples vaccines”. That seems to work at hotels and spas. And last but not least is “Be a friend, bring a friend”. 

If these three do not work then we may have to resolve to pay people something in order to get them to take the vaccine. Remember that every time one person gets a vaccine, it stops the spread to others. 

Protect yourself and help to protect others. Take the vaccine. Go with someone to get the vaccine even if you already have taken the vaccine. Everybody loves company. Use Ordinary Common Sense (OCS) when it comes to wearing the mask. 

Thanks for reading.
