Sign me up. I’m already on the annual flu vaccine train. Frankly I don’t want to have to miss work for a week, and there’s no way to know if I’d have a light case or not.

(Side note: got influenza a month ago and was sick for a week+. Freakin a flu sucks.)

Awesome. I hope that I won't have to wait long in line to get it.

The company’s official press release [1] provides more details on neutralizing titers against BA.4/BA.5 which are the emerging Omicron variants today vs. BA.1 which was the original Omicron variant. The result is noteworthy in light of recent research [2].

Yeah, sure. I'll get whatever. By August who knows if it'll do any good, but my immune system won't mind the workout.

I had COVID a couple weeks back. I'm triple vaccinated. It was like a moderately bad cold. If vaccines provide me with assurances that every bout I have with it will be just that, I'll still get them. But I'm pretty over doing just about anything else.
