covid 19-the fall vaxxine


we are about to enter our 3rd year with the covid 19 virus
we lost over a million americans to this virus
most were unvaxxed
since this all started we now have a vaxxine that will keep most americans from getting sick enough to be hospitalized or to die from covid

its sad so many died
most didnt have to die
its a blight on our history that history will look back on and say
i cant believe that happened

we lost about  770  from covid yesterday
most arent vaxxinated
thats still too many people

all of us havent learned our lesson

some cant take the vaxxine but now we at least have meds they can take to keep them from getting sicker

also history will look back and say 
its amazing what science did in those 2 years
a miracle it was

so now most of us are eligible to have gotten 2 shots plus 2 boosters
soon this fall we can get the new fall booster

it will work better against the omicron variants like ba.4 and ba.5
the ba.5 makes up most of the infections now
we are having about 100,000 covid infections a day in the us now

i read where half those folks may not even know they had it
thanks to previous infections and vaxxinations

these variants are more contagious but not as nasty a infection as the original wild type that killed so many folks in the us

some recommend if you arent boosted yet then consider getting boosted now with the booster and not wait till the omicron covid booster becomes available
thats based on how bad the infections are in your area and your vulnerability to the covid infection

for me since im quadrovaxxed i plan on getting the fall omicron covid booster when i go in for my flu shot
remember the flu will probably hit us all hard this fall and winter since we all were staying at home and masking so the flu immunity has waned
this is the year to get your flu shot for sure

the supplies may be limited at first so they will only be given to the most vulnerable at first
like old folks and immunosuppressed folks

talking with folks who have got covid recently say it wasnt fun for a 1-2 weeks
it disrupted their lives and they felt awful during that time
a reminder getting the flu does the same thing

as i tell folks
i dont want to get sick when i dont have to

consider the new omicorn covid booster
the flu shot

it may make for a better fall and winter
