I got my third shot on Thursday - it was one of the new bivalent vaccines. Honestly, I wouldn't have bothered with it if it weren't for that entry without a PCR test requirement they conjured up..

Symptoms were pretty much the same as when I actually got covid back in February (fatigue, headache, chills) except no back pain with the vaccine - just arm pain I guess.

Back on my feet just in time to enjoy Halloween parties. :) Remember when the sensible people used to call these parties "superspreader events"?

I don't think we need to see the daily, exact-count COVID scoreboard every day

I certainly don't need to see it daily, and I don't

Rather than daily posting of meaningless numbers (other than fact they are tiny), why not cover stories about the impact of masking kids and teachers for 3 years? Why?

What are the benefits of continuing to do this? And given there are none, why not examine the costs on social and emotional development? Not to mention the hygiene issues or the environmental costs of more plastic waste and pollution?

42 deaths? From covid? Really? Isn't everyone vaccinated who needed to be - many many times? And given that the variant is significantly milder - a breakdown of those deaths showing age, health status, vaccine status and whether the virus was the chief contributory factor in the death is needed. Otherwise the numbers are again totally meaningless.

You can still get re-infected with Covid but the symtom are scratchy sore throat, dry caugh and a fever right for a few days and only required to quarantine for 5 days at home? That what I experince when i got it 3 months ago and If thats the case whats the point of getting tested for covid when no doctors are willing to treat you when you have a fever? Seems like next wave got started.
