Will there be spoonfuls of sugar to help the COVID vaccine go down?
You have to wonder, seeing as how Disneyland Resort will become a mega-super-ultra-yuuuge COVID vaccination site later this week. (Plus, I bet they have a bunch of unused sugar on hand that’d be perfect for something gimmicky 😉 ).
As The Atlantic‘s Olga Khazan writes:
Everyone’s worst pandemic nightmare is happening in Los Angeles. Intensive-care units are overflowing with patients gasping for breath, and there might not be enough ventilators to go around. If a patient has virtually no chance of survival, ambulances have been told not to bother transporting them to a hospital at all. People experiencing a heart attack or kidney stones can’t count on a bed being available for them.
With the exception of curbside pick-up or other non-contact transactions, we’re staying home. Southern California is a fairly scary place right now. (Although the weather is going to be nice this weekend, so at least we have that going for us.)
