Pandemic snapshot

by the numbers, all approximate/estimates/major rounding:

500,000 population of my county
113,000 fully vaccinated
100 new cases a day at this time last year
500 new cases a day in November, at the peak of the virus when schools and offices closed
25 new cases a day now
12 years and older can get vaccines

Seems like we'd have even FEWER new cases than the 20-30 a day but there are those more contagious variants now. I watch it a little. I have family members who watch it REALLY CLOSELY but my pandemic concerns have plummeted since I got my 2nd vaccine dose months ago. we aren't wearing masks anymore, I don't see them any place. the grocery store, the restaurants.

we are still a ways out for kids vaccines though. I'm reading middle of winter? Just my luck, to have an 11 year old, barely missing the cutoff. I guess both my kids will get vaccinated at the same time. at the very latest, josie will turn 12 in a year, then she could get it like any 12 year old. they say it's not that bad for kids, but until they're vaccinated my kids are germ spreaders that's my main concern.
