Please infer anything from this. I didn't have my glasses on and read that as "...the Jews music." I immediately thought of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah chair dance. Then I clicked the link and was really confused.

IRestoreFurniture: Got my bivalent booster yesterday.


I feel OK but my arm is much more sore than When got the other shots.

Thanks for coming to my ted talk.


Got mine yesterday, and my arm seems less sore than last time. And my phone reception is amazing.

I looked for data on whether this is more or less virulent, but it's too early to say for sure. This at least suggests that it's not dangerous, since we would have seen that by now.

From another article from August: So far, India isn't seeing a significant rise in hospitalizations from its 'Centaurus' (BA.2.75 ) wave, says Jameel, who gives credit to the combined effects of high rates of vaccination and of previous infection.

So, I'm not going to panic yet. It's possibly more transmissible but probably no more dangerous, which is exactly what we expect in the evolution of viral pathogens. We're at the stage where we just have to live with this shiat.

misanthropicsob: B...b...but, Joe Biden said the pandemic is over.

I guess now we're just supposed to live with the current level of getting COVID 4-6 times a year.


As a great many Americans are stupid AF and wouldn't take precautions or the vaccine.

Yes.

Yes.


As if breakthrough cases aren't a thing.

And as if most of the mutations didn't start elsewhere first. BA.5 was already peaking in Africa and England before it started taking over in America.

But, let's ignore that because preventing variants from coming to America would have required executive orders and we all have seen Joe Biden doing only the barest of minimums well after that bare minimum would have been truly effective.

And, yes, everybody should get vaccinated and boosted.

What is happening here is the same thing that happened with influenza, we see more and more less lethal variants over time.
So the pandemic is basically over and we'll see more infections and fewer deaths. If you get the vaccine, it's no worse than a bad cold when you're infected. We'll probably need boosters periodically, like flu shots.

No need for a panic or more lockdowns unless new data suggest it's more lethal.
