    Officials say circulating myths are likely keeping many people from getting vaccinated against COVID-19. In Los Angeles County, there remain 1.7 million residents who haven’t received a single vaccination dose, and 2.7 million vaccinated people who are eligible for a booster but haven’t yet received one, county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said last week. Even among seniors 65 and over, 90% of whom are considered fully vaccinated, only 63% have received a booster shot, Ferrer said. Among the myths Ferrer sought to clear up about boosters: • Some people may think that just two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna shots are adequate and they don’t need a third shot, but getting the booster offers the best protection. • Some might think needing a booster means the primary series of vaccines don’t work. That’s not true — shortly after getting the first series of vaccinations, protection is high but then fades over the next few months, and the booster fortifies the immune response to fend off the coronavirus, Ferrer said. • Surviving a coronavirus infection after...
    COVID-19 vaccines during pregnancy can protect babies after they're born and lead to fewer hospitalized infants, a U.S. government study released Tuesday suggested.The study is the first to show potential benefits to infants born to people who received two doses of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines during pregnancy, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researchers said during a briefing.It was already known that antibodies developed by COVID-19 vaccines transfer to the fetus through the umbilical cord. How that might affect infants after birth was uncertain."Until this study, we have not yet had data to demonstrate whether these antibodies might provide protection for the baby against COVID-19,'' said Dr. Dana Meaney-Delman, an obstetrician and CDC researcher.Infants in the study were treated at 20 hospitals in 17 states from July 2021 through mid-January, during surges involving the delta and omicron variants.WATCH: Mom shares ordeal being pregnant, sick with COVID-19 EMBED More News Videos A 32-year-old mother from Placerville is sharing her story of how COVID nearly took her life and that of her unborn baby.

    Serbian pro tennis player Novak Djokovic is reportedly doing a 180 and considering taking the jab after being kicked out of the Australian Open for not being vaxed. Djokovic’s biographer, Daniel Muksch, claimed in an interview published by News.com.au that he has heard from insiders that the tennis star is preparing to take the vaccine. “From what I have heard from those around him, I think he is getting vaccinated,” Muksch said. Djokovic was deported by Australian authorities in January after he entered the country without having been vaccinated for the coronavirus. Australian authorities denied his application for an exemption. Muksch also noted that wins from Djokovic’s rival, Spain’s Rafael Nadal, may also be “driving” the sudden changes in the Serbian’s interest in the vaccine. “Maybe the final in Melbourne also contributed to (Djokovic’s decision),” Muksch added. “Rafael Nadal’s 21 is driving him, no question.” Djokovic tweeted about Nadal’s success. “There has been some outstanding tennis played at this year’s #AusOpen, and the finals were exceptional,” Djokovic tweeted after Nadal, and Ash Barty won titles. There has been some outstanding...

    Kroger has announced it will ban unvaccinated staff from getting paid sick leave if they catch Covid and will start charging managers and workers without their jabs a $50 monthly health insurance surcharge. According to The Wall Street Journal, the grocery store chain, which employed about 465,000 full- and part-time workers as of January 1, told employees through a company memo that Kroger will no longer hand out two weeks of paid emergency leave for unvaccinated employees who contract the virus. The only way the Cincinnati-based chain plans to change their mandate is if local government dictates them to, the memo said, as first reported by WSJ.  Kroger will also require unvaccinated managers and nonunion employees to pay a $50 monthly surcharge that will go towards company health insurance plans. According to the memo, both policies will be effective as of January 1, 2022.  This comes as there's been fierce pushback on President Biden's vaccine mandate for private companies - which requires all employees to be fully vaccinated, get tested for Covid-19 weekly or face thousands of dollars in fines...
    New York workers who are fired for refusing to get vaccinated are not eligible for unemployment insurance, Gov. Kathy Hochul said on Saturday - just two days before the deadline for workers to get the jab.  New York City teachers and state health care workers in hospitals and nursing homes have to prove that they received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by Monday.  The only exception to the vaccine mandate is a valid, doctor-approved request for medical accommodation.   The governor made the ramifications clear during Saturday's announcement of a contingency plan to address potential staffing shortages in hospitals and other health care facilities statewide. Hochul specifically referred to hospital workers, but New York City is bracing for a similar situation, with about 13 percent of roughly 78,000 teachers are currently not vaccinated, an education department official said on Twitter.  New York State Gov. Kathy Hochul said state workers fired for being unvaccinated will not be eligible for unemployment insurance NYS hospital workers and NYC teachers have to receive at least one shot of the COVID-19 vaccine...

And McCown thinks that this year, doing the job right includes getting vaccinated. McCown said that Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has refused to get vaccinated and had to miss five days of training camp because of a potential COVID-19 exposure, isn’t doing everything he can for his team. “Obviously, we have a personal choice, and that’s a freedom that he has,’’ McCown told Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “But I think in the realm of a team and understanding everything we do about the science and the safety of it, I would just say it would be hard week in and week out for a quarterback to say, ‘Hey, I’m all for my team, but I’m not going to do this.’” McCown...

    DENVER (CBS4) – There are currently 504 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Colorado, and Gov. Jared Polis on Thursday renewed his plea for more residents to get fully vaccinated against the coronavirus to slow the spread. In a dramatic moment during a morning news conference, he quoted a Bible verse. He used well-known language from the Gospel of Matthew to emphasize that getting the vaccine isn’t just about personal protection. “It’s also about more than individual choice. It’s about our responsibility to one other. Because if you’re unvaccinated you may think you’ll get light symptoms … but it’s also about those you could potentially infect — your aunts, your uncles, your elderly neighbors. “The Gospel of Matthew states ‘Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self.’ And getting vaccinated to protect yourself first and foremost protects you, but it’s also an act of love to protect your neighbor and those that you’re around by reducing their risk,” he said. (credit: CBS) Colorado currently has a rate of 73.14% of residents immunized with at least one dose of the vaccine. 65.4%...
    BOSTON (CBS) — A new study finds that people who have had COVID-19 in the past still benefit from getting vaccinated against COVID. Dr. Mallika Marshall has a message for people who believe a prior infection is enough to protect them: Yes, I hear this all the time: ‘I’ve had COVID or I have a positive antibody test so I must be immune,’ but that’s not true. We know that if you’ve gotten it once, you can get it again. Now the CDC has looked at hundreds of people in Kentucky who were previously infected with the coronavirus through June of this year and found that those who were unvaccinated were more than twice as likely to get reinfected compared to those who were fully vaccinated. So even if you’ve had COVID-19, you are much less likely to get it again if you get vaccinated. And it’s generally recommended that you do so within 90 days of your initial infection unless you were treated with monoclonal antibodies in which case you should wait a little longer.
    Facebook Travis Campbell Travis Campbell is a Virginia father who has been documenting his COVID-19 battle in online videos posted to Facebook. In particular, he is expressing regret that he did not get the vaccine. “I messed up big time, guys,” he said in one video that he posted to Facebook. “I didn’t get the vaccine … I made a mistake, I admit it.” In several videos, Campbell, 43, who is from Bristol, Virginia, spoke from his hospital bed through an oxygen mask. Here’s what you need to know:1. Campbell Says He Was ‘Very Misinformed’ About the Vaccine & Was ‘Negligent’ to Not Get It “Hey everybody good morning,” he said in a video on August 6, 2021. He spoke with labored breathing. He said he was praying for prayers and strength and “back for everybody else that’s sick.” He said he wanted to “continue on focused on the fight, saving our neighbor and making sure they don’t make the same mistakes I did by not get vaccinated or communicating with your doctor in preparation for the virus....
    Travis Campbell, a 43-year-old father and husband from Bristol, Virginia, has been in the hospital for two weeks now with COVID-19. Campbell has been fighting for his life while posting videos describing his experience on his Facebook page. Both Travis Campbell and his wife Kellie Campbell contracted COVID-19 in late July. ABC News reports that Kellie Campbell had been hospitalized with the virus but has since recovered. Unfortunately, Travis has continued to get worse. Kellie says that the experience has been a nightmare. “He started in a regular room, and then he went to a Covid ICU room, and now he's in the pulmonary ICU.” Alternating between posting text and videos, Travis Campbell says he hopes his terrible experience, regardless of the outcome, can have the silver lining of making more people aware of how important it is not to wait to get vaccinated. Campbell’s declining health, chronicled by a man who says he made a mistake by putting off getting vaccinated, is very tough to watch.  Three days after testing positive for the virus, Campbell posted that “I have never been this sick in my life!! My whole...
