    I have seen patrons ask the dealer if he or she had vaccinated. It seems to be a common question.

    I disagree. It's a public health issue.

    If the dealer is attractive, I’d ask all sorts of questions about her, including this one.

    Figure about 1 in 3 have been fully vaccinated in the US and the rate at which folks are seeking to be vaccinated has tapered significantly in the last few weeks. FWIW the pundits and politicians seem to have been fairly effective at at convincing some percentage of the public that the vaccine is not safe. As a result basic strategy is to assume that the majority of folks that you will encounter in public whether its the casino, grocery store etc. have not been vaccinated and use as a guide to plan your activities and mitigation.

    Be safe and use your noodle!

    What a great way to clear out the table - tell them you’re unvaxxed! If they still won’t leave, start coughing.

    As to the original question, the vaccines are so effective I’m not sure why you’d care whether the dealer is vaccinated if you are.

    I don't get it? Having been vaccinated protects you....but does nothing for anyone else. So if a dealer was vaccinated, but was around someone that may have covid, they could be a carrier. Granted folks that have been vaccinated most likely will not be a carrier unlike someone who has not been vaccinated could be a positive carrier/spreader. If your vaccinated, don't worry about it.

    If I understand the latest studies, if you have been vaccinated, you can still contract the disease, but will shed far less endangering fewer people. Remember, you must have been exposed to a certain amount to contract. Also, people who have contracted Covid and recovered should still get vaccinated as the vaccine builds better immunity than exposure. In any case, people who have been vaccinated should still wear masks when near other unvaccinated people.

    Transmission reduction of 90% for the infected, fully vaccinated. That's very good. The positive test rate in my zip code is now 0.58%. (Nevada is about 5.5%.) 90% to 95% of people here still wearing masks walking outside. May as well be patient a bit longer.
