We already had ours. Masks on at the beginning then slowly all off! The two singers singled me out for some questioning (well, to be fair, also the boss). The singers were aborigine. When I told them my aborigine name and some other things they warmed up to me so no harm done. We had also two bottles of good scotch at our table so again all good.
If Medigen were magic against Omicron . . . and if the PRC imported that stuff for their domestic market . . . I imagine it’d probably be relabelled “Glorious Chinese Vaccine Made by Chinese Taipei, Province of China, Since Ancient Times.” Or something like that.
Me too. I am also not clear about how long the booster is effective or how effective it is against the new variants that have emerged after the vaccines were developed. The information available is conflicting depending on the author’s viewpoint.
I’ve heard officials in Canada say that the boosters (which take 14 days or so to be fully effective—it’s not some magic pill) can roughly increase protection against infection by Omicron by around four times. Of course we know by now that double dosed protection against infection by Omicron is really low. The latest number I’ve seen (from Ontario in Canada) is around 13%! So multiply that by four. I guess it’s better than nothing.
Protection again hospitalization and landing in intensive care, thankfully, seems to be holding steady against Omicron. Here even double dose without a booster really seems to help.
Nice little jump there. They’ve started the 12-17 year olds at their schools. My daughter in HS received her second BNT shot yesterday. She can attend online classes today instead of going to school. No side effects and I’m happy about that.
