I just read somewhere that the second dose is worse.

I've also heard it's harder on younger people, though.

What do people think? Will we have a fourth wave? Or will we escape it. I understand there's a wave going on in Europe. Is that true? How awful if it is!

I believe there'll be a fourth wave, but perhaps more regionally.  The 1918 influenza pandemic lasted from Feb '18 till April '20.  We're just a year into this one.   

Way too many stupid people in this country.  Starting with governors.  Then with vaccine deniers.  I'm embarrassed to say that up to a third of healthcare workers are refusing the vaccine, including hospital employees and home care workers.  Plus, we have all the new, more virulent variants. 

I suspect we'll be needing "booster" vaccines for years to come. 

We'll shortly have a surplus of vaccines.  Will he help less fortunate countries???

I go for my second dose on the 28th, just over a week away.  I'm mentally preparing myself mentally for the side effects.

I've seen people complaining online about needing booster shots.  I just assumed this would happen.  Most people need a flu shot each year, why would CV-19 be any different?

I would like to know how we should schedule this stuff?  Get the flu first, or the CV-19 one first?  How long should we wait between the two?

We'll see.  There may be a "covi-flu" combination vaccine that we get every year.

What's up with that? I assume they're not anti-vaxxers in general, like those to prevent MMR and polio? Do they think these have been rolled out too quickly, without sufficient testing?

Thanks for your insights, Paul! Humans are very strange creatures...

There's a great short article in today's New York Times about how to vanquish "languishing" or that stuck, frozen feeling many have been having during the pandemic.

I really don't know what they think.  Because it's under emergency authorization, the vaccine can't be "mandatory".
