After seeing that, that’s why I wanted to vaccinate my own children.”Levent said all three of her teen children will be fully vaccinated soon.Li said it’s common for parents to have questions about the mRNA vaccines, such as the one produced by Pfizer, and works to try to combat misinformation with facts.Dr. Sarah Li“They hear ‘genetic material’ and they get worried,” she said. “They hear ‘new’ and they get worried … But this genetic material is not something that’s incorporated into the system. It’s broken down very quickly. The more I learn about the vaccines, the more it’s abundantly clear we should be giving it to everyone who is able to get it.”Levent emphasized that the key to ending the pandemic is stopping person-to-person transmission of the virus and, in turn, mutations of the virus. The vaccines are the best way to halt transmissions and new variants of COVID-19 that are more contagious or more deadly.She noted that about 370 people are hospitalized with COVID-19 across AdventHealth’s hospitals in Central Florida, a slight decline over prior weeks, but still a sign that masks, good hygiene and vaccines are needed in the community.last_img read more

England win the London Sevens in thriller against New Zealand

first_imgThursday May 28, 2009 England win the London Sevens in thriller against New Zealand England won the home leg of the IRB World Sevens Series at Twickenham in London on Sunday with a thrilling 31-26 victory over New Zealand in a classic final that went to sudden death extra time.In front of a festive home crowd, the England side staged a miraculous comeback with three quick fire tries after being 19-0 down at half time. Tries from Uche Oduoza, Micky Young, and James Rodwell pulled things back after New Zealand had flown ahead early on, thanks to a Kurt Baker try, and two from Julien Savea.At 19-19 and with little time left in the match, the ever impressive Zar Lawrence crossed for the try that looked like breaking English hearts.An inspired substitution by English coach Ben Ryan meant that the flying youngster Dan Norton came on and with his first touch of the ball, gassed the New Zealand defence to score a classic try and keep the home side in the match.Three minutes into extra time, Mickey Young darted over for the winning try, capping a sensational final that will live long in the memory of those who turned out at Twickenham to support this fantastic shortened version of the game.“We never gave up believing in ourselves even though we were 19-0 down at half time,” said England coach Ben Ryan. “We knew we had a mountain to climb, New Zealand had their tails up and we hadn’t been making progress.“In the second half we allowed ourselves to breathe a bit more in attack and tightened up our defence. Then we brought on Dan Norton and that was that.” Would you like to see Rugby Sevens in the Olympics? Show your support by signing the petition at Olympic-Rugby.org now!

Rene Ranger huge hit on Christian Lealiifano

first_imgMonday Mar 22, 2010 Rene Ranger huge hit on Christian Lealiifano The Blues beat the Brumbies 39-34 in Round 6 of the Super 14 on Friday, with makeshift centre Rene Ranger standing out as one of the best players on the park on the night. Injury troubles throughout the first six weeks of the competition have meant that the Blues have been without the options of Anthony Tuitavake, Isaia Toeava, George Pisi, and Luke McAlister. This forced coach Pat Lam to take a chance on the powerful 23 year old, whos normally a winger and showed a lot of promise with his pace and physicality last season. The gamble paid off as Ranger was involved in most of the Blues attacks and made his presence felt on defence. “Rene was there initially because he was our last option to use,” Lam admitted. “He certainly has the skill-set. All he is lacking is the experience. But he has that thing I like in rugby players – no fear. He likes to have a go.” Hes now proving to be a real success in the heart of the action, and showed his power as he smashed Brumbies centre Christian Lealiifano into sometime next week. To his credit though, Lealiifano jumped straight back up and showed no ill effects from the impact. Ranger is in the headlines today though for a different reason, and that is that his name has been revealed as the player who was involved in the assault case from last October. He allegedly assaulted a man, leaving him unconscious, outside the Mangawhai Tavern in Auckland in August. Initially he was granted interim name suppression, but the judge later lifted the suppression order. Rangers lawyer appealed, only to be rejected and have the order lifted, and his name made public, earlier today. Ranger is expected to go on trial later this year or early next year. “Im disappointed that I was involved in something and that it has got to this stage. Its not good for me or my family and its not good on the team,” said Ranger. “Its now in the courts hands. I have just got to get on with my job and do what is best for this team,” he added. Head coach Lam said that the Blues will not take any further action against Ranger.Time: 0:50 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 – Round 3

first_imgFriday Mar 16, 2012 Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 – Round 3 So we’re heading into another weekend of rugby which includes, amongst other great goings on, Round 4 of Super Rugby down south. Here’s a look at a crowd favourite, as the Rugby Club in Aus brings us the Plays of the Week. Probably the biggest talking point of the week was that moment of madness after the Bulls vs Blues match, where a fan came onto the field and tossed a water bottle at Keven Mealamu’s head.“We’ve had this sort of thing in New Zealand as well… I still love the place (South Africa). The incident caught me by surprise, that’s all,” said Mealamu when speaking about it earlier this week.The game itself was actually a good one, as were many others on the weekend, with some great tries scored. We get to some of the best in this week’s Plays as Sean Maloney, who actually made his full commentary debut, talks us through the best and worst of the round.There’s also some big hits, including that Motu Matu’u monster tackle on Matt Hodgson that was featured here a few days back, and one or two other belters that are worth checking out too. On a side note, the best way for you to let us know you enjoy something on here is by leaving a quick comment to say so. Last week this feature didn’t get too much of a response, so this week if you can, please take a minute to leave one. If you’re not registered to post already, you can do so here now, or you can just leave a guest comment, but remember, with guest comments you need to validate via email each time.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Plays of the Week Related Articles 123 WEEKS AGO WATCH: France destroy Wales in Women’s Six… 138 WEEKS AGO Waikato winger scores four tries in epic… 304 WEEKS AGO The Wraparound from Rugby HQ – Week 27 From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
