Got my normal flu jab yesterday like I done so past 10 or 12 yrs, Flu changes every Yr hence the need to get one. Don't c why people are surprised u need a booster each Yr, as covid a stronger more continuous form of the flu strain

I got the flu jab and the covid booster at the same time over the weekend. One each shoulder.

I would expect I'll be back in the spring for another covid booster, just like I'll get another flu jab next autumn.

It cost me about half an hour out of my day and little else.

Yet they're screaming like these mandates are the end of the f**king world. Bunch of babies have no idea what actual hardship and persecution are.
keith olbermann would be proud of you .

I don't think there is much to argue about.
Vaccines appear to lowering severity of symptoms but they are nowhere near as effective for prolonged periods as we had hoped.
What lies ahead we don't know. Preferably a better more effective vaccine as I think there is the real danger of drop off in booster uptake
They absolutely lower it. Thereís no appear or discussion on it. Do they require a booster/ top up? Looking that way. Is this an issue? No. Will vaccine efficiently improve with new versions, most likely. Complaining that it doesnít do enough when thereís  no alternative is nonsense.

There are alternatives. They just tell us there isnít.
Give us a run down there.
how many shots are you ok with taking?
Whatever the experts tell you ?

Is that a serious question? No Iím waiting for confirmation on the magic number from Bennycake.
him and Pfizer are thinking about 6

Flu shot works about 50%

Yes! Do you generally not listen to what medical experts tell you?
just curious why you would think it will work better the 7/8 time you get it

I was never sure why the ROI stopped publishing covid death stats (no doubt a political decision) but it should be the best deterrent / publicity for Covid compliance - 63 Covid deaths in the past week. That should be an eye opener for a lot of people.
155 Covid deaths in September and that could rise further yet due to backdating.

If we have 155 dying in September, a month when we should be seeing one of the lowest totals for the whole year, that's a big problem. Averaged out over a year that's 1,800. And it's not going to stay near that average over the winter.
Numbers are high given that Covid activity is low from April to now.
I can't see nightclubs staying open. The key numbers are free ICU beds and % unvaccinated.
shouldn't increasing emergency icu bed capacity  have been a  priority for any government for the last year and a half ? Doing nothing and then saying we donít have enough canít be a valid government policy while they pay out billions for other ďpriorities ď

ICUs all have surge beds in an attempt to deal with this, have been in place since April / May last year. Where do you suppose the specialist staff come from to man these new beds?
so are they ready for a surge or not ?

So here we are, a plethora of people vaccinated! Positive numbers rising. Nothing really changing.

What has improved using this experimental Drug? Because it is an experimental drug until 2023!

It's well enough giving it to auld ones, But giving it to the youth of our society who are not in any danger is reckless.

My kids will not be getting it until it is approved officially in 2023.
74m under 18s in the USA 449 have died of covid since March last year , less than a flu season
Get the vaccination, give a booster to over 65 , be very careful if your immune system is compromised or you are obese ,take vitamin d and c   get out in the sun if you can when itís shining and try and get good sleep.

Jon Gruden has resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. He made racist and homophobic comments in e mails about 10 years ago that were published in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times.

Not that it matters, but his emails and pronouncements go from 2010 to 2018.

At least he felt sufficient shame to resign.
victimless crime how many wife/ girlfriend beaters are still playing?
One well known qb has 24 sexual assault allegations against him and is still eligible to play .
Thought crimes by a white coach are much worse
