    The Omicron vaccine is coming out in March so everyone who is vaccinated how will not be vaccinated in March and need a new Omicron vaccine.

    Funny how he has no clue that ironically "Tesla" vehicles, like all other EVs, use DC current. Not to mention portable computers, solar cells, batteries, etc etc etc.

    AC power's main advantage comes to use in large power grids because voltages can be easily adjusted according to need by surprise surprise, an alternating current.

    When you speak out of your ass, shit comes out in the form of ignorance.
    It would probably sell less vehicles it was called an Edison.

    ACs main advantage is need for a lot less infrastructure. Thus enabling the power network at a much larger and wider scale.
    English was a second language for you, wasn't it? Reading sarcasm must be difficult. I get it, truly. But I decided to just got better at it. Good luck. Just try harder little' tike.

This is caused by some factors: vaccination, a part of the population has been infected and immunized before and for the moment omicron seems to give milder symptoms.

    And for all the 'it's just a flu and I have a strong immune system ' groupies:

    It sucks to have damaged lungs, especially if it's for good.
    Thanks, yeah indeed those were my assertions.

    The only thing I want to point out is that the study cited focused on a period where Delta was the dominant strain. Omicron, at least in the immunized (natural or vaccinated), has been shown to colonize in the upper airways and less so the lower airways associated with pneumonia and presumably systemic disease.

    But I'm definitely not saying that Omicron innately does not colonize the lower airway, but for those with a primed immune system, it makes sense that in the lower airways which have immune properties of the specific immune system such as T cells and antibodies, the less virulent Omicron is more easily contained. Those with a naive immune system (not vaccinated and not previously exposed) likely will not benefit from this same reality.

    And again you refuse to see the connection between vaccinated people being infectious for less time and how that reduces spread significantly. A vaccinated person who is infectious for only 3 days will infect less people than the unvaccinated who is infectious for 10 days. Common sense.

    Most healthcare personnel from all over the world have recognized Omicron's mild nature and are just waiting for government and health authorities to catch up. Your inability to see the same either stems from you protecting your pride or an over reliance on filtered television journalism.

When France have less daily deaths than UK and fortunately than US which are number 1 to fail under covid, despite Pfizer and Moderna, but still so many deaths under Omicron.
    Breaking news by Sirioja, the USA has a broken healthcare system with not enough doctors and hospitals and a population that has too many untreated comorbidities. Give him a Peabody award for "groundbreaking" investigative journalism. As we say, "no shit Sherlock."

    This nation has never been one built for those looking for collective welfare but rather set up for the rich to get richer and the resourceful poor to easily climb. Those looking to coast or rely on assistance are destined to fail here. But that's the beauty of this country, it's designed for winners to win. Winners being those born with tangible resources and those with the intangible drive but starting out with little material wealth. The lazy bottom and in-betweeners fall further and further behind. Sounds like a pretty fair system to me.

    The faint hearted need not apply. Seats taken.

Might have to roll with J&J as plan (B). Strange times.
    Haha, Mexico don't care. No test or vax needed. Was in Cozumel last fall and travel was super easy, almost 100% normal. Just need a test within 24 hours to come back to the States for which I was gouged $75 for what should be a $20 antigen test. Gringo pricing I assume.

    They've approved every other vaccine to be used there so I'm sure NovaVax will be the same. Like I said, Mehico don't care, hah!

    But if you're in the business of exploring other vaccines in other countries, look up Cuba's protein subunit vaccine which will surely be available in Mexico once WHO reviews / approve data. It's showing to be more efficacious against variants so might curb the need for endless boosters. (3 shots though).

If no booster, no more valid pass in France, so I can't go anymore to some business meetings or to restaurant, not what I call freedom.
    After being expulsed from Australia, djoker Novax won't be allowed for second grand slam Rolland Garros in France if not vaccinated and with valid pass. Same than me, he needs valid pass to be free, he should also not be allowed to play tournaments in US. Really big pressure for vaccination and booster, to protect our hospitals, as say our medical.

    CDC just recommends mRNA over JJ because of preliminary increased efficacy data seen against Delta variant. Likely also applies to Omicron. But JJ booster still efficacious, just marginally less so.

    I have yet to treat a single person for covid in the hospital who received a booster. Some boosted patients were treated for other issues but had incidental positive covid test results. They were without respiratory symptoms or cytokine storm (inflammation and clots) related to covid. Intubated a couple unvaxxed (likely Omicron) patients since December 2021. A few people were mRNA double vaxxed with their last shot in Spring 2021 (a long time ago). But even they only showed mild symptoms with Omicron.

    If you did fine with the first JJ vaccine, I see no reason besides socio-political-ideological ones to not get the JJ booster. It'll likely prevent hospitalization and at the very least make a shitty covid week a lot less shitty. I'm 39 and JJ boosted, got Omicron around Christmas after getting patient respiratory secretions on my face, felt shitty for 1 day. On day 3, I was asymptomatic, antigen negative but pcr positive, meaning I was likely no longer infectious. Some of my 20 something year old unboosted colleagues were out with flu like symptoms for almost a week.

    Observations based on my personal limited sample size of course.

    Cringe has nothing to do with the joke itself. Bad jokes are usually the best when performed well. It is all about the performance. You got to state them deep into the eyes when saying the worst joke in the world! A too good joke is usually lame. Since it tries to be smart. Now that is cringe! You being afraid of eye contact.
