COVID vaccine very good news 

The first paper on a COVID vaccine is out, and initial indications are VERY good. While we don't know how well it protects, the people injected with it wind up with MORE antibodies then people who actually GOT COVID, which is a good sign.

mkdir -p $t
git config --global init.templateDir $t
echo ref: refs/heads/main > $t/HEAD
