Covid booster shot rollout off to a bumpy start

The rollout of a new round of Covid vaccines in the U.S. is off to a bumpy start as some patients report delays in health insurance coverage for the shots.

Private insurance plans and government payers such as Medicare are required to cover the new jabs from Pfizer and Moderna, which became available late last week. U.S. regulators have recommended all Americans ages 6 months and up get the new round of vaccines.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, some private health-care providers and CVS confirmed the temporary delays in coverage and emphasized that Americans can access Covid vaccines at no cost through insurance plans. They said the reason for the delays is that some insurers are still working to update their plans to include the new vaccines.

Dozens of posts on social media in recent days show some patients were charged anywhere between $125 and $190 for a shot at pharmacies. Others were told their insurance plans aren’t covering the new vaccines yet.

Today Ukraine struck the HQ of the Black Sea Fleet in Crimea.

This was a daylight raid. Russia has lost control of the air in Crimea.



The last few days I've been seeing mysterious posts about the war in Ukraine

Like the following, a translation by some Russian military commentator. They all hint at something coming. Don't know what they mean, if anything.


PS: People say more Russian prisoners are being captured in recent days. Don't know if that's related.

The latest from Ukraine: Navy drones may have hit another Russian ship.

And a related story, I think:


The latest from Ukraine: Ukraine hit a 3rd ship the other day

I was waiting for visual proof to post about it. Now we have it:


FT no paywall: The RACE TO save Ukraines Abducted Children

Last weekend, during a trip to Kyiv, I glimpsed a newly released photograph of some Ukrainian parents with their children, whose faces were blurred out. The adults mostly wore expressions of shock or exhaustion, but one young woman had donned a baseball cap and grinned broadly as she tightly clutched two kids.

In some senses, this image, released by Dmytro Lubinets, Ukraine’s humanitarian ombudsman, is a sign of hope. The children in question arrived back in Ukraine last Friday, having been removed to Russia several months ago without their families’ consent.

But it also points to a challenge that has received too little global attention. Since Russia’s invasion, many Ukrainian children have been grabbed by Russian soldiers and officials, and dispatched east. Lubinets said he has records of almost 20,000 such deportations. He added, however, that Russia’s children’s rights commissioner, Maria Lvova-Belova, has proudly claimed “several times” that there are 700,000 Ukrainian children in Russia. (In March, the International Criminal Court charged her and President Vladimir Putin with war crimes.)
