Out of the Blue

We've hit the last page on the 2021 calendar, so happy December! MrsBlue and I have an adventure today, as we're going to attempt to get COVID-19 booster shots. We originally got the Janssen (J&J) shot. At the time this was said to be "one and done," but this has since been deemed inadequate. Even though it's changing teams, the data we've seen suggest the Moderna shot is our best bet, so we're shooting for that one. All the news these days is about Omicron, and how new boosters may be required for that. This makes it seem like we're chasing a moving target, but as I've said in the past, MrsBlue's asthma is a significant comorbidity, and we're doing our best to err on the side of caution when possible. The whole scheduling and confirming our appointments was a little vague, so we'll see if it works out today, and regroup if it doesn't. Call it a shot in the dark.

Boosted Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

Well, at least there's some sort of encouraging early reports about the new Omicron virus variant.

An early report out of South Africa claims that the cases tend to be relatively mild. Another early report out of Israel says that the vaccines worked for all 4 of the patients that they found. There certainly needs to be a whole lot more data gathered before we really know much, though.

It's definitely better than than if those 4 cases had gone the other way.

I found that taking an aspirin before going to sleep after getting one of the shots goes a long way towards reducing the side effects.

Edit: Even better news coming in constantly as data is updated. Pfizer seems very effective so far.
