Vaccine lottery? Fine, but we are doing pretty well without it
Alabama has pretty much beaten the pandemic.
The most vulnerable have been vaccinated, and everyone that wants a vaccine can get one (for free).
Cases are down, hospitalizations are down and deaths are down.
Since ADPH is no longer updating their dashboard on weekends or holidays, as of today Bama Tracker has stopped updating. Thanks to everybody that supported the site and the work behind it. pic.twitter.com/fGr8etlBHX

The Alabama Public Department of Health stopped updating its website on weekends, and BamaTracker has shut down.
Yes, there are many who are vaccine-hesitant, but why should I even care if an adult decides they don’t want to take a vaccine?
Kids are now eligible as well, but I won’t be running my kid out for a jab anytime soon.
Even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have admitted that if you have been completely vaccinated, you can relax and lose the mask.
The people who are wrong about everything will tell you how this is a path to doom.
Even St. Fauci agrees the mask can go, so relax.
Alabama’s Dr. Anthony Fauci, State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris, now says Alabama is considering a lottery and other potential incentives to get people over the hump on the vaccine.
I am, and everyone should be, completely fine about something like that.
However, State Senator Sam Givhan (R-Huntsville) argued this is most likely unconstitutional during a radio interview on WVNN this morning.
Don’t expect the state to come up with a “vax-a-million” lottery unless they can figure out a way around that pesky constitutional issue.
However, if they do come up with some giveaways, I want in on that, even though I got my vaccine as soon as I was eligible.
We should be honest about this. Alabama is on the other side of this pandemic, and any incentive created won’t do more to get people to take shots in the arm than just getting our lives back.
