    I saw where only 6 schools in the SEC have a 80% rate of getting their shots. Are we one of them?

    If this gets political we will lock/move it. Lets see if it can stay football related.

    I got mine. First shot was as easy as a high school prom date. Second shot kicked my ass for a couple days.

    Dan says we are not one of the six but are close:
    "We're doing very well with that," Mullen told reporters. "I'm not going to get into that right now, but we are at a pretty high number of vaccinated players right now... We're getting close to the threshold numbers that you need to be at."

    That sucks. Looks like C19 protocols and missing players will still be the rule and not the exception this season.

    Mullen said UF not at 80% but supposedly close, and apparently 85% gets you out of testing.

    Solution: Add a crap load of vaccinated walk-ons to push us to 80%. LOL
    All kidding aside, hope we get there.

    No games rescheduled this year due to COVID. You play with what you have or forfeit. How is that message not clear enough to a football program?

    Why the hell is it so difficult? It takes like two seconds to get a shot at Walgreens. Free. My son started UF two weeks ago and was vaccinated before he stepped foot on campus. This shouldn't be that difficult to accomplish.

    Maybe peer pressure from the vaccinated who could be annoyed by the continued testing will motovate the rest and help surpass the threshold.

    I will believe it when I see it. If Alabama has players testing positive the game will be rescheduled or the other team will be forced to forfeit.

    Alabama will be over the 85% threshold....they won't even be testing. I don't suspect anyone in serious contention for a NC this year will have trouble with their vaccination rates.

    I thought UF (the school, not the football program) was going to require that?

    Either way, 80% isn’t bad if UF are “close” to that. Probably a helluva lot higher than the general student pop. Maybe a chunk of them are back home and just haven’t gotten around to it? These are basically kids/young adults we are talking about. Maybe before fall camp you make it super easy for them. Take the team to a Shands Clinic or something, or hell better yet, bring the clinic to them 1 day.

    The SEC would believe ole Nicky when he tells them his team is 105% vaccinated.

    So if they are 80% vaccinated there will be no testing, wonder how they will handle the inevitable, someone shows symptoms and turns out to be positive after having been vaccinated.

    We will see. Would not surprise me these schools will have some restrictions due to cases going up again.
