    Got my booster yesterday. Definitely more of a reaction this time than the first couple of shots in the spring. Glad it’s over. Curious if this’ll be a thing every six months or what?

    Signed up for the booster. I had asked my doctor back in September and he said to hold off, but its after six months and just following the news it seems to me we're all headed in this direction. Pfizer filing for authorization to do boosters for everyone and more countries opening it up to those over 50 convinced me. I can't imagine it being the dumbest decision I've ever made-Mike G

    first "couple of shots"? How many have you had? Just based on what I'm reading, I'm guessing the next booster when and if it comes will be a new cocktail specific to the latest variants. I believe the drug companies are working on this

    Just the standard two Moderna. First in March and the second four weeks later.

    'Ongoing failure': Berkeley Dept. of Public Health pans Cal football program's 'major COVID outbreak'
    https://www.sfgate.com/collegesports...y-16608097.php

    "Berkeley Public Health continues to work closely with University Health Services to help contain and respond to a major COVID-19 outbreak involving the coaches, students, and staff in the Cal Football program," the statement begins. "All of these 44 lab-confirmed cases involve people infected with highly contagious COVID-19, which spreads easily unless public health safeguards are used."

    Cal's football players are 99% vaccinated, the school has said, and its staffers also have a similarly high vaccination rate. During a press conference on Tuesday evening, Cal Athletic Director Jim Knowlton could not confirm how many of those players were asymptomatic, or at least unaware that they were potentially exhibiting COVID symptoms.

    Bill would it be safe to assume that the guys on the Cal team are healthier than your employees? Some OSHA stuff in the article as well...

    He’ll be teaching a class on the finer points between “immunized” and “vaccinated”.

    ...or the finer points between "being disingenuous" and "lying one's face off."

    There's a theory; he believes he was infected by a fully vaccinated person...

    But, surely he'll learn a lesson from his life threatening illness. Well, life threatening to his endorsements.

    My brother got a 3rd full dose of Moderna. Said he was knocked out for 24 hours, he didn't wait for the half dose booster version. There's a part of me that thinks we're not spacing out the shots enough. In the U.K. they determined a 12 week gap between the first and second leads to better results. My doctor told me at six months the healthy patients he's tested still show very strong anti-body levels. That said its seven months for me and it seems more countries are embracing the booster so I'm doing it now rather than wait another month. My previous plan was to wait till the 8 month mark

    Each of the individuals at work tested positive after exhibiting symptoms, some severe. What's unknown is how many younger employees have covid and are asymptomatic or just have a case of "the sniffles" and continue to come to work. We have passive screening in the form of IR cameras located in the lobby to look for fevers but it hasn't been that useful. Under OSHA guidelines, unvaccinated workers will have to be tested periodically, companies will have to hire additional HR or Safety folks to accomplish this. I doubt it will ever clear the courts.

    Speaking of Alma mater, my cousin's son is a Cal grad and is now the backup QB in Buffalo after Trubisky tested positive.

    Apologies if asked previously, what’s the percentage of unvaccinated at your site. And how many cases have you had since the start of the Pandemic?

    I'm curious what you intend to do with that data. Call me wary.

    So, what's your point? You often bring up snippets of data, link a study, or reference a news item such as the Aaron Rodgers COVID positive. It seems to this reader that you are somewhat passive-aggressively promoting an agenda that the vaccines aren't very affective and that COVID isn't a very big deal. With that impression in mind, I'm asking what is the intent of your postings/messaging? I'm genuinely curious.

    I live in an area with low vaccination rates and militant anti-vax folks. Each time a vaccinated person gets Covid, it appears the anti-vax crowd feels vindicated. My wife had a breakthrough case, was sick for three days and then good to go. This seemed to jive with the idea that the vaccine lessens the impact and helps prevent hospitalization. Seems reason enough to get vaccinated.

    I've lost four friends who were younger than me (56) and unvaccinated. They spent their final weeks of living on a ventilator surrounded by family who were late to recognize it was all avoidable.
