Suddenly there is a light at the end of the long, dark, scary tunnel – and it isn’t a flickering light either. It is bright and will probably get brighter in the days to come. You could almost hear the world breathe a sigh of relief. But at the same time, there’s some understandable reticence to embrace it with no questions asked. It is the fear of the still-unkown that’s making people hold back, though the scientific community is quite upbeat about them, about the coronavirus vaccines. The CDC answers the questions that plague you so you could have the right idea and make the right decisions about the vaccines.

The main objective of the COVID-19 vaccination strategy in Spain is to reduce the morbidity and mortality caused by this disease through vaccination against COVID19, in a context of progressive availability. The vaccines will be administered free of charge through the National Health System.
Residents and healthcare workers in nursing homes for the elderly, and people with disabilities will be the first to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The vaccine is safe, effective and its administration will be voluntary and free of charge. All the COVID-19 vaccines will have the same levels of safety as any of the other vaccines habitually used to prevent other diseases. All in all, Spain will receive 140 million doses to immunize some 80 million people.

Did you know? Ten percent of the Spanish population above the age of 18 are now veggies. Moreover, in the last two years, 35% of adult Spaniards have cut back on their red meat consumption. It's getting so that you're either a meatatarian (who seems to be trending toward at least partial oblivion) or a kind vegetarian when not strictly vegan. Know what you are! And, incidentally, if you're in Madrid on 22 November, you could drop by the Fantastic V joint in Malasaña and have a free vegan burger!
I once said that most people would rather eat cardboard than watch a black and white movie. And yet, movie buffs and purists have often claimed that colorization degrades the original and is a travesty of the creative efforts of the directors of the time. And, let's face it, until now colorization has been less than successful, as far as quality is concerned. However, you can watch a collection of vintage films and series that, while not perfect, are really a treat to see and revisit or discover old favorites. These I truly consider YouTube Treasures. MY MAN GODFREY. THE WOMAN IN GREEN. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. ONE STEP BEYOND TV Series.
