Let me get this moving in the right direction, with Monocracy's post that deserves better than to get buried at the end of a closed thread:

This is a very good point. The CDC no longer requires fully-vaccinated people to quarantine after COVID-19 exposure as long as they remain asymptomatic. The CDC is also developing more relaxed public health guidance for those who have been vaccinated.

Preliminary data, not peer-reviewed, suggests:

85% lower risk of infection after two doses (Pfizer)
70% lower risk of infection after one dose (Pfizer)
67% reduction in asymptomatic infections after one shot (Moderna, AstraZeneca)
1.6 to 20 times lower viral load for those infected after vaccination (Pfizer)
Significantly reduced viral loads 2-4 weeks after one shot (Pfizer)
49.3% reduction in asymptomatic infections (AstraZeneca)
99% reduction in mortality (Pfizer)

Should these preliminary data be confirmed, I hope that this good news is shouted from the hilltops, even as people are cautioned that some precautions remain advisable.

I'm taking it so seriously that I dropped my mom at an abandoned Target so a stranger could stab her.

"the dominant strain in California not only spreads more readily than its predecessors, but also evades antibodies generated by COVID-19 vaccines or prior infection and it’s associated with severe illness and death, researchers said."

I'm not trolling, it's just funnier to say it how I did.

The Minnesota Department of Health has set up a testing and vaccination site in an empty Target store in Brooklyn Center.
I drove her to her appt today and she got her first Pfizer dose.

For sure, David. I think the link deserves a bump as well. Thanks Monocacy!

That's great news, but also makes me sad that my work hasn't had any hints of getting the vaccine.

The amount of missed work and also inefficient work (can't fully do your job because some other key resource is out) due to quarantine at my job is staggering.
