  1. Then, it does not look too optimistic. Take a look at a 2021 calendar and count out the weeks for the best scenario in your case. At best, if you get your first dose next week (not likely), then you could receive your second dose the second week in April These are best case scenarios and you are not eligible for the first dose yet.
  2. That would be up to you. When do you think you will be eligible? You will need two. The second one is done 3 weeks after the first.
  3. FROM THE CDC WEBSITE: Pertussis is a very contagious disease only found in humans. Pertussis spreads from person to person. People with pertussis usually spread the disease to another person by coughing or sneezing or when spending a lot of time near one another where you share breathing space. Many babies who get pertussis are infected by older siblings, parents, or caregivers who might not even know they have the disease. Pneumonia: When someone infected with M. pneumoniae coughs or sneezes, they create small respiratory droplets that contain the bacteria. Other people can get
  4. Absolutely! My point is that people are walking around without protection for self or others while these other horrible diseases. Believe me; Pneumonia is not fun! And older people are very susceptible. From the CDC website: HOW IT SPREADS: When someone infected with M. pneumoniae coughs or sneezes, they create small respiratory droplets that contain the bacteria. Other people can get infected if they breathe in those droplets.
  5. I am sorry if I misspoke... it may be termed a "titer" and not a vaccination. Age 60 or not: The following is from the CDC website: :Diphtheria is a serious infection caused by strains of bacteria called Corynebacterium diphtheriae that make toxin (poison). It can lead to difficulty breathing, heart failure, paralysis, and even death. CDC recommends vaccines for infants, children, teens, and adults to prevent diphtheria." "Adults All adults who have never received one should get a shot of Tdap. This can be given at any time, regardless of when they last go
  6. Absolutely! I get it. I do not even have a scar from the one from smallpox. I threw a wrench in the works to create food for thought. HOWEVER, some need updating like DPT (good for ten years), pneumonia, and of course our yearly influenza shot. I even had to have a new MMR vaccine after I gave birth because they said I did not have the antibodies anymore. And our daughter had to have a new MMR because they said she did not have the antibodies anymore either ( before she became pregnant again). And now, we are supposed to get the new Shingles vaccine.
  7. Thanks Thrak! LOL- I have heard to not visit Mt. Rushmore during Sturgis. We have been to Mesa Verde and loved it. But we were driving a 1960 VW Bus that we converted into a camper. I have read that you need to leave trailers down below at a campground and just drive your vehicle up. As I recall, the road is steep and windy to the top. This sounds like a fabulous trip.
  8. Also, when we were on the Celebrity Reflection in October 2018, the SNOOTY bartender informed me that there were only TWO white wines that were included on my beverage package.
  9. We were on a similar Emerald deck corner cabin on the Coral. I really do not think noise will be an issue, as the promenade will be mostly below you and not the lounge. You can look at the deck plans on the Princess website and do a mental overlay.
  10. DO NOT DO IT! We had an interior room one time like this and the noise!!!!!!!!!! So, ye, it is probably an air shaft to a funnel. We swore, NEVER again for a mystery interior room.
  11. The Grand? Geeeeeeeeeeez- I love that style and we were booked on her for September 2022 for Alaska!
  12. I believe in equality... I would be much more comfortable if the following vaccination documentation is required: MMR (measles, mumps, rubella,) Pneumonia (the two rounds) DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus) Chickenpox Varicella Influenza (annually) Shingles Hepatitis A & B Meningitis Polio Our daughter and son in law refuse to allow us around their children without being current on these. When working in an Assisted Living Facility, I contracted pneumonia... not fun. And I would hate to spread any of these to anyone,
  13. Hi Thrak- I apologize if I missed it... which "new parks" will you be visiting? I am also working on a couple of trips with our travel trailer; one to begin in mid April and another for the beginning in June. I buy National Park magnets for souvenirs. We live 75 miles east of Olympia, Washington (coast). Mt. Rushmore has been on our list, but I fear that mid April may be too early for reaching South Dakota. Thanks for sharing! Great Basin National Park looks great, however, their campgrounds do not take reservations.
  14. I am not sure about noise, however, be aware that the balcony is small about- 5 feet deep.
