I went to the funeral of a guy who died of covid

I was the only person wearing a mask. Not the widow, not the kids, not the preachers, not the funeral people. Just me.

1. That's nuts!

Good for you, but I think the CDC made a mistake removing the mask requirement so early.

Let's hope the family stays healthy.

12. I am really upset

how everyone is treating the vaccine as a panacea............

It is painfully obvious, at this point how precious little we still know about Covid, and for that matter, about the vaccines.....

20. And for all we know

keep right on spiking time after time with all the Mutations coming from around the world......

I am presently watching Florida, (not that you can trust DeSantis's figures) to see what happens after his second spring break college break crowd gathering........

I love it. He and the governor of South Dakota, sponsering massive events, collecting huge amounts of Tax Revenue, and then sending all the people back across the United States for those states governors to deal with the fallout

5. Did this funeral just happen? If so, it's possible that everyone was vaccinated at this point.

10. Yes, that is possible. It'd be helpful if vaccinated people found a

way to indicate it.

14. Maybe with copyable info blanked out -- just the overall message would do.

When looking at "vaccinated" pins, I didn't see any styled as a vaccination card, but that could be a good design.

I had both shots, but never received the card. (did the nurse forget to give me one?????)
I guess I will have to go to my local bar, or the internet, to get an official looking one......

29. It's a card they fill in when you get vaccinated

Both times. I would go to where you got the vaccine and ask them about it. I was vaccinated in Andersonís supermarket in the pharmacy so thatís where I would go first. And I live in New Mexico so I can go on NMDOH.ORG and check it out there too.

30. I know, thx.

I got one for the first shot, but the second time they were so disorganized, I think they forgot to give it out.
I'll see if they can provide me with one, in case I ever need it.......

31. They don't give you another card for the second vaccine.

They just entered the date of my second vaccine on the card they gave me after my first shot. You might see if they just need to enter a date for the second vaccine.

Or maybe you can print something out from the online department of health site in your state. They must be keeping track of their vaccinated people. They should if not.

6. Insane

What the hell. I went to a memorial outside last summer. My mom and I were only ones with masks. I could not get out of there fast enough. Its hard to stay focused on why you are there. Don't understand people.

Some people just aren't capable of learning critical lessons.

Good for you, though. Stay healthy.

22. Sorry, not going to judge here

Chances are excellent the widow and kids also had the disease and were in each other's "bubble," anyway.

The preacher and the funeral director should have had more sense, but one hopes they were fully vaccinated.

Good for you for masking. The disease sucks. I couldn't taste anything for a couple of months.

23. We went out to eat.. outside.

the waiter was wearing his vaccine card, in a plastic sleeve, around his neck.. No mask. Most of staff were wearing masks. We've all been vaccinated too. Best crab I've had in years!

And screw anyone who might not be able to be vaccinated.
