covid19-immunization schedule for covid for fall 2022


the recommended bicovid vaccine schedule is below from the california covid 19 vaccination program

the bicovid vaccine covers you against the wild type or original covid and the ba.5 or ba.4 variants
right now in the us we are mostly seeing the ba.5 variant

it presumed that there will be another variant pop up over this next year that will take over from the ba.5 variant
this new bicovid vaxxine should provide some protection against the new infections when they pop up

now we will probably go to a once a year covid vaxxine after you have had the primary series
changing the new vaxxine based on what happens to the variant make up of the covid infections over the year

its the same we do with the flu

we are still losing around 400+ people a day to covid

the outbreak will peak again this fall winter along with the flu

so get both shots the new bicovid shot and the flu shot to protect you against both

as i wrote last week in australia who is just finishing their winter they filled their hospitals with covid and flu infected folks

most of us who get the covid infection wont get hospitalized or die
the same with the flu
we can feel real bad for a week or two if we get either of these

like i say some times
i dont want to die from something i can prevent
makes sense to me

if you have had your 4 shots like i have then you should also get the new bicovid vaxxine
since im 72 im also probably in the immunosuppressed group

those of you who have comorbidities like obesity diabetes heart disease lung disease kidney disease cancer to name a few are also in that category

jsut remember we lost over a million folks to covid

few of them were vaxxinated

there is no excuse now

when you look at the schedule look at your age group then look for the original shots you got

basically if you are vaxxinated against covid
just get your bicovid shot this fall

kids under 12 dont get the new bicovid vaxxine
it might be available later next year for them

when you think back over the last 3 years its amazing we have come this far with a vaxxine that we have been able to change to keep up with the covid virus as it changes its dna

also thankfully most of us are immunized against the wild type either from being infected and surviving and or getting vaxxinated

lets build on that immunity by getting this new vaccine
the bicovid vaxxine
