On the upside the the waste management industry should be seeing an uptick in applicants!
Nice, got mine scheduled, thanks!This article is dated yesterday but first I've seen it:
Connecticut's Gov Lamont urges ALL adults to get a booster ASAP
*(daily "positivity-rate" in CT hit 3.38% yesterday)
There was an article posted by "your local epidemiologist" on FB that showed roughly a two-fold increase in antibodies for boosting pfizer with Moderna relative to a 3rd pfizer dose, but that study utilized a full Moderna dose whereas the booster is only a half dose, so I don't think there's any solid data one way or the other. I boosted with Pfizer (all 3 doses).
Here is the data that was presented in order to get the boosters approved. I modified the graph to remove clutter and focus only on people that got Pfizer first. Note: due to the rush to get the data in and the boosters started, day 29 was not yet ready for boosting with Pfizer. So, look at day 15. All vaccine boosters significantly increased antibody responses. All boosters got antibody responses to ~5x10^4 AUC by day 15. There is virtually no difference between a Moderna booster (top graph) or a Pfizer booster (bottom graph). The J&J booster is basically as good except maybe for the last variant shown in pink (B.1.617.2 is Delta).
My county was at the forefront; they beat the CDC by about five hours.CDC makes it official: boosters for all adults.
it was never going to be contained because very few governments have the will to fight the spread properlyI assume this is bad news, becuase it makes it even less likely COVID will ever be eradicated

Can you in fact get Covid from a dead anything? Is this an issue at morgues?In fact, hunters are likely to be one of the most obvious sources of potential reinfection as they regularly handle dead animals.
NYC still staying just under a 2% positivity rate in a very very dense city. Being masked in mass transit helps a lot. A lot of people still mask up in stores. Vaccines required to do many indoor things. People still having a blast at bars and restaurants and all the things. Will be at a bar tonight in fact, in the East village.
Always a risk but feel better just knowing this is the situation around me.
I think the point is misguided.Can you in fact get Covid from a dead anything? Is this an issue at morgues?
Interestingly a subsidiary of Pfizer is distributing coronavirus vaccines for animals, zoos specifically right now. I'd think eventually people will be able to get their pets vaccinated too.I think the point is misguided.
The fact that it hops species makes it more likely to mutate to something new and makes it harder to eradicate. We can’t vaccinate all the humans, how would we vaccinate all the deer, cats, big cats, dogs and assumably wolves and squirrels.
I'm on the PATH station platform now. About 95% mask wearing. This is the lowest I've seen it this year.Connecticut has been hovering around 3% this last week however New Haven is still a bit under 2% locally.
A lot of folks are skipping masking up now even in localities that still have a mask-mandate which is something new here.
I for one will be masking up indoors in public during cold/flu season moving forward Covid-19 be damned. (plenty of other nasty stuff floating around to catch!)
Don't like it? Tough freaking luck.
*(interesting how even here in CT the map CLEARLY indicates in more rural/GOP leaning towns the rate of infection is far higher most likely due to fewer being vaccinated... and CT is pushing 82% w/1 shot & 71% fully vaxxed I believe. How stupid are these people?)
