This is a very normal human thought process, when we see two things happen at the same time, we consider that they may be related.  This is a valuable response, because it encourages us to change our behavior accordingly.

I eat the leftover gefilte fish that's been in the fridge for a week... I get stomach cramps.  I guess they may be related, and next time I throw out food that's been sitting for that long.  Good!

I go to a noisy wedding... and my ears are ringing the next day.  I guess they may be related, and next time I go to a wedding I bring ear plugs.  Good!

I drive to work... and get in an awful traffic jam.  I guess they may be related, and next day I quit going to work.  Uh... maybe not so good!

When we see two things occurring at the same time, our first thought is that they may be related, but that shouldn't be our last thought on the matter.  We need to examine more carefully whether or not there really is a relationship between them, and exactly what that relationship might be.

...We (humanity) really are all in this together.

Stupid question, but if JNJ vaccine is readily available and Moderna/Pfizer require a wait, can I get JNJ now and mRNA later? How risky/foolish is that?
Looks like nobody knows, but they're trying to figure out if mixing and matching will work:

"The United Kingdom is launching the world’s first study examining whether different coronavirus vaccines can safely be used for two-dose regimens.   
Participants in the study will be given the vaccine in alternating doses -- for example, Oxford/AstraZeneca for the first dose and Pfizer/BioNTech for the second. "

It’s February. More people in the US have been vaccinated than have tested positive for COVID.

For what it's worth, that threshold was crossed on Jan 29

Looks like we’ll pass the 3M/day flu shot benchmark soon, hopefully 4-5m/day if production ramps up before hesitancy affects demand

Because of supply, lack of interest, or kids?

Yes. And possible mutations.
