Kansas National Guard members receive vaccine, Gov. Kelly tours distribution site

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – State soldiers are now getting the coronavirus shot. First and second doses of the coronavirus vaccine were given out to Air and Army National Guard members at Forbes Field in Topeka.

This was the second distribution like it. Some people are in phase one, others are in phase two.

Vaccines come from the United State Department of Defense and are not part of the state’s allotment. So far the guard has been given 1,100 vaccines, with more to come. When a member is able to get a shot depends on how critical their mission is.

Kansas Adjutant General David Weishaar said things have looked different during the pandemic for the guard.

“We have not compromised any mission requirements because of COVID. We have compromised some training requirements but it has not impacted our mission negatively,” Weishaar said.

The state added 80 more vaccination sites on Thursday, according to Gov. Pritzker. The governor also announced the Illinois National Guard will be coming to Winnebago County in the next few weeks to help administer vaccines.

Axon Capital’s Singh Sees Vaccine Boosting Travel, Entertainment Stocks | Investing News

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Services company stocks, especially those linked to travel and leisure, have room to rocket higher next year as consumers venture out again after spending on goods but cutting back on services during the pandemic, hedge fund manager Dinakar Singh said.

With vaccines against Covid on the horizon, Singh, who runs Axon Capital, expects a flood of pent-up demand for travel to see far-flung business clients and employees, visit grandparents and take vacations.

“Things are going to be explosive,” Singh, who headed Goldman Sachs’ proprietary trading unit before forming his own fund in 2005, said at the Reuters Global Investment Outlook Summit. “There well could be a huge surge of pent up demand for activities that have been restricted because of the virus.”

After personal savings rates climbed early in the pandemic, stocks broadly recovered. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index has gained 12% since January and
