There's vaccine for everyone in the U.S. but only 36% of the population is vaccinated? Are there really that many people refusing to get vaccinated?

Fully vaccinated (the most of any high populated country by far), one dose is 46%

 

The small gap between one-dose and fully vaccinated do seem to show that a lot of the 54% without a dose is resistance to it yes I think.

Keep in mind, that number for the US includes the entire population including kids who are not eligible to get vaccinated. Among eligible populations its closers to 45% (16 and up).

But yes, in general we are starting to see the resistance. vaccination numbers have been dropping pretty quickly, though they have stabilized in the last week at just below 2M per week. 

 

We are also seeing maybe 5% of people who get their first shot not go back for a second dose.

 

As mentioned US has one of the highest vaccination rates along with Isreal, Canada and UK (among major countries). After that there is a pretty steep drop in vaccination rates.

Regal mask policy yesterday: 
 

Quote

Guests are required to wear a face mask at all times while in the theatre lobby, auditoriums. and restrooms. This includes face shields with masks or appropriate nose and mouth coverings (i.e. gaiters). We will provide masks to guests who arrive at the theatre without one.

Masks can be removed only while eating and drinking while seated in an auditorium. Employees monitor auditoriums throughout each performance as a standard practice. 

Where socially unacceptable behavior is observed, including the non-wearing of a mask, this will be addressed with the patron.

And today:

Quote

With rapid improvements in COVID-19 case rates, increasingly widespread vaccinations, and recent CDC guidance that vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks or socially distance, the movie theatre industry will continue to meet or exceed state and local public health guidelines. 

State and local guidelines vary based on local conditions and vaccination rates. 

The CDC continues to recommend masks and social distancing for unvaccinated people. 

Masks will not be required unless mandated by state and local guidelines. Where masks are mandated, they can be removed only while eating and drinking while seated in an auditorium. Employees monitor auditoriums throughout each performance as a standard practice.

I don't think this is a total good news. May a good to some since they need no to care the hassle but this can disinterest other group of people if they think the cinema isn't safe.

Social distancing going bye-bye on June 15th in Cali.  As a state requirement, at least.  Local businesses can obviously keep them if they want (and local counties might still have their own regs).

 

Quote

California Health and Human Services Director Dr. Mark Ghaly briefed reporters Friday on specifics of the state’s long-planned June 15 reopening.

 

“Capacity limitations are no longer going to be part” of the state’s plan, he said. “We will not have capacity restrictions.”

 

On physical distancing, Ghaly said simply, “None.”

 

On masking, he said, “We will follow the CDC guidance on masking.”

The HHS director then expounded. “There will be some guidance…specific to the various settings,” he said. “We know that it will be shifting over the next few months.”

 

In general, Ghaly said there will be no more capacity limits on businesses. But, for large events, as alluded to by Gov. Gavin Newsom last week, there will be “vaccine verification or negative test verification” required.

 

“For outdoor activities,” what Ghaly called “mega outdoor events” with attendance of more than10,000, he announced, “We are recommending that those operators have a system to verify vaccination or verify.” Operators of those events can also “give that person an option to come into the event and wear a mask.”

 

For indoor events such as concerts and sporting events, he said, “We are requiring, not recommending, the vaccine verification/negative test. There is an option to have it be by self-attestation.” Ghaly then said there will be a forthcoming California Department of Public Health posting on that.

 

The HHS director was asked repeatedly about vaccine verification for mega events. He said California will be working with event operators/private-sector businesses on exactly what that will look like, but said, again, the state will not be using a vaccine passport system.

 

“We are not at this time considering or requiring a vaccine passport for vendors,” he said.

 

The coming rules are similar to what has already been put in place at some large venues. At Staples Center, those attending concerts or Lakers games must provide a health verification. “Guests are required to present a photo ID, and either proof of full vaccination (two weeks since your final dose) or a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours of the event date,” reads safety information on the venue’s website. Out-of-state visitors, it says, “are required to show proof of full vaccination.”

 

In addition, Lakers and Clippers games have sections exclusively for those who are fully vaccinated.

 

Ghaly also said that there will be no restrictions on travel from various other parts of the country — are you listening, Disneyland?

 

He said there may be some restrictions on travel from various hard-hit parts of the globe, however.

 

Also?

lol.  I'm quite sure that will be followed strictly by us scrupulously honest Californians.  

 

(if I read this right, it's an option for businesses/events to use, not a requirement that they allow self-attestation — either way still lol)

This sound like "If you aren't vaccinated by June 15, you're screwed...."

It certainly is sending a "shit or get off the pot" message.

 

One thing I would note is that while there is easy access to vaccinations now, there might not be as much equal access to vaccinations.

 

While California has been admirable in its goal in setting benchmarks for vaccinations rates in underserved communities (though based on zip code, as I understand it, which makes it more than a bit fuzzy) there's still the factor that it's far easier for some folks to get vaccinated than others.

 

I ran across this bit literally moments ago:

 

 

It's kinda analogous to the voting problem in the US in that even with windows for folks to send in mail-in ballots or visit an early voting station, some folks don't have as much free time as others do.  Still others aren't as great at managing their time budget.  And others still might not have the ease of transportation to/from vaccination sites.  If someone is working two (or more) jobs with long hours (and low pay) they simply might just not have the mental (or physical) energy to set aside time to get vaccinated unless it is super convenient.

 

It's one thing to have vaccination sites open to everyone.  But if they're not in areas where there isn't as much mobility/free social time, well...  Part of the equation of vaccine hesitancy is folks budgeting the time to actually get shot as part of their internal risk/reward.

Apologies if the answer to this question is elsewhere, but how the hell do I get rid of this giant font lettering that’s hit the forums in recent weeks on my iPhone? It’s unbearable.

Maybe I can get some more traction for my club if I post it here, I think 2021 is going to be fairly weak but 2022 should come back roaring.

Don't really like this policy . Theater recovery is still vulnerable and the last thing we want is people deem cinema is a unsafe place to go. Seeing people mask-up provide assurance or comfort even if their actual efficacy fall shorts.

 

Also, how are they supposed to know who is fully vaccinated? I remember when CA increase their cap to 75% for vaccinated group, theaters are complaining there is no way to execute but now suddenly they can identify who got fully vaccinated. I will rather have all people mask up (except when they are eating or drinking) to get 75% cap

^^ They don’t have any way to verify. So immunocompromised folks won’t go to the movies (or shouldn’t), and parents of younger kids might be a little leery of it too.

Got back from Quiet Place 2. Good movie although the novelty is starting to wear off a bit and the ending was pretty disappointing imo. My theater close by is probably in the top 1 to 2 percent in terms of seating capacity. It's main auditorium can probably seat close to a thousand people. Anyways the place looked like it normally did during a weekday afternoon pre-pandemic. Also they seem to be moving a lot more of their showings into the more pricey 21+ sections (where you basically have to pay what would amount to about a ticket and a half). I would have had to wait two hours to watch it in a room at the more traditional price they had. Things like that never happened pre-pandemic.

 

I understand from a business standpoint why they are having to do that but that definitely isn't going to entice the more casual movie goers to continue going to the theater. As far as the OW numbers Quiet Place 2 is getting a good chunk of that is probably due to the fact that they are putting more showings in their expensive theaters (I assume that is probably a thing that is going on throughout all of Regal). On a Saturday evening it looked like it normally would on a Wednesday or Thursday afternoon. I'm pretty much good with just waiting for streaming for a good long while if it is going to start becoming difficult to find a time where you aren't having to pay a ticket and a half for a movie.

the policy is fine, anyone in America can get vaccinated easily , if feel unsafe, wait a few weeks to return

I am absolutely amazed and floored that theaters (along with most other businesses in hospitality) actually lifted most of the restriction especially capacity and face masks.  I really thought they would be overly cautious and this would take months to phase down and we would not be at full capacity until at best Nov Dec.
