Not another layer, more of a parallel path. Just add a field for an email address and the notification goes to your friend and also to you for example. One quick call and youíll know heís seen it.

Maybe Iím too optimistic but I donít think it will be much of a stretch. Bloomberg finally added a graph of daily vaccinations. The last seven days averaged 844k per day and the last two days...

Would the FDA let them do that? I know the flu vaccines are different every year but are they just a different concoction of known components or is it a set of brand new components each time.
