"I always mix up the Dakota and the San Remo. :) "
The San Remo was originally supposed to be called the Dakota, and the two towers would have been North Dakota and South Dakota. When that fell through, they were going to call the San Remo the North Dakota and the Dakota the South Dakota. That fell through too.
I think your doc is probably right. Still, it'll take a while for that general distribution to happen, and remember there are a lot of people who, while not being anti-vaxxers, plan to wait until they can let the side effects play out in the general population. I hope you get back sooner rather than later. I've been sayin' the Fall since the Spring.
