Seems the OG vaccine is effective for about six months against omicron. These multivalent vaccines can't come soon enough...

Some informative comments from this guy on the new variants. Basically, we're in unknown territory as coronaviruses aren't supposed to mutate this quickly. Apparently COVID is mutating between 2-10 times more than the normal fly virus (which is already pretty mutation prone).



If you're interested, read the whole thread on Reddit for context. It's only three posts.

so Jason's cousin's kid was at grandma's with the usual bunch yesterday because her daycare provider was closed for the week (vacation? idk) and she was feeling fine but then overnight she spiked a fever and it turns out she has...

swimmer's ear, pink eye, AND COVID.

Daphne's had 2/3 of her shots (we're doing Pfizer, her third shot is scheduled for September) so I am hoping she doesn't end up with it. she's back at grandma's today with the usual bunch (sick kid is not) bc at this point everyone that's there was already exposed to the two contagious things so there isn't much to be gained by quarantining.

With the amount of attention that kid pays to butts, you're probably going to breed some super strain of pinkeye.

Pretty sure I have COVID. Someone in a group of people that I was hanging out with at the business conference tested positive yesterday. Not really surprised. I've had a sore throat since yesterday morning. This afternoon my throat is now swollen in addition to being sore and I have a mild headache. Tested negative this morning before my flight home. Masked up after I left the hotel to the airport and on the flight. Cough drops are my savior right now. Glad to be home. Would not have wanted to spend 5 days in quarantine at the hotel in DC.

Edit I tried to get my 2nd booster shot last week but no one around here had it available.

Fuck man. Get though it fast. It's gonna be a shitty week, but you'll be ok hopefully.

I'm on the 3 months clock waiting for my second booster now too since I caught it

Welp. Wife caught it.
What happens when you fly to NYC.

I feel fine. I'll keep her at arm's length.

if you don’t catch it at “arms length” and she caught it in NYC.. then who was she not at arms lengths with in NYC
