Yeah this winter Flu season could make things very "interesting," in the Chinese curse sense of the word.  Overlap infections are coming, and several articles I have read suggested waning immunity from a near non existent season last year, could make this year much worse.

The death was in a middle-aged resident with multiple underlying medical conditions, health officials said in a news release.

It wasn't a flu death, he died of something else! The hospitals must be being paid to say it's the flu!

Got my flu vaccine weeks ago cuz Kaiser had a drive-thru clinic going when I was there for another reason. Convenient.

PSA/CSB: Got my flu and COVID booster at the same time. Just plan to take the next day off. Your body is going to be working a lot that day. Had no symptoms first dose, minor symptoms second dose, and usually a mild fever from the flu vaccine. Was on my ass that next day.

How much acting does it take to play dead? You just lay there! By that measure, I'm an actor every time I go to sleep. Where's my Academy Award for Best Performance in a Non Snoring Role?

One of my (ok, few) good traits, according to various partners, is that I sleep very silently. Also I'm better than an electric blanket.

Masking and distancing should stay. But, Bill Maher would rather let people die.

Same here, it used to freak out wife2.0 to the point she would check to see if I was breathing.

wow non snoring. I've stayed in cheap motels and woke the people next door. Non snoring, must be nice.
Fun fact in a typical flu season 20k to 30k die each year. The last "bad" flu season 60k died. That was when Biden was VP and they hadn't done anything to replenish the national stockpile. Ahh simple times.

oh they're actually reporting flu deaths this year?

FTA: "Last winter, circulation of influenza and other respiratory viruses was likely suppressed by measures implemented to slow the spread of COVID-19, according to the health department."

Last winter there was no "flu season" because people were (mostly) doing what they were supposed to in dealing with COVID-19. And you know what? Washing your hands, keeping shat clean, wearing protective masks around others, and staying away from other people ALSO works to slow transmission of the infinitely weaker influenza virus!

Who would have f'king thunk?

This winter people are going to be stupid like it's 2019 again, and flu season is going to be back. Not looking forward to this.

Many times over the last five years it's occurred to me that we are all living in very interesting times indeed.

Last year this was brought up as the babies that get most of their flu immunity from their mothers will be in a low exposure point for about a year or two.  They were looking at giving young kids a flu shot that included the core flus from years ago since there weren't any current ones to give them.  Hopefully a lot of kids have learned to keep cleaner in the last year and that might help out.
