Covid booster shots significantly strengthen immunity, trial finds
Covid booster shots can dramatically strengthen the body’s immune defences, according to a study that raises hopes of preventing a winter wave of severe disease driven by the Omicron variant.

I think if dbd33 was in charge they wouldn't be allowed food or meds, they would be under permanent house arrest.

I'd say, governments and lawmakers should allow fully vaccinated people ( possibly the 3rd shot mandatory and boosters every 6 months or every year ) to travel and roam around freely. No arrive apps, no test, no forms to fill out, to upload, nothing, just the vaccine passport and the QR code and one should be good to go.

Where were you thinking of going? I was thinking of doing the same but rethinking as well...I don't see the point in quarantining for a negative result when they could just do rapid PCR tests on arrival, Canada just chooses not to employ these tests that are available widespread across the US and even Europe.

Hell, i'd happily even PAY for the arrival test if it was processed on the spot and I got the results before I left the airport.

I had a rapid PCR test yesterday and don’t have to isolate- not that rapid as 12 hours later and I still don’t have the result.. new rules are not in place.

Well they have to have a day off every now and then, to get a new stick! The Gaurdian too... wow.

Nice to hear though.... the CBC were hamming it up yesterday though, lots of gloom.

Could be worse we could be living in Austria and Germany, lockdown again!

Always wanted to go the Nashville, think that would be a music experience and a great place to spend the holidays and new year celebrations, warm too. A few of us were thinking about it. But its probably a sh!t show around there, so I will do it another time... looks like staying put, its just too much trouble to travel presently.

The problem is in Germany and Austria they aren't vaccinating enough. Germany has bureaucracy issues with vaccination appointments and Austria has a militant anti-vaccination scene. Thus they made the vaccine compulsory in Austria.

Latest inthe BBC is saying that increase in the number of cases is what drives up mutations. So when vaccination rates are high then the case rates go up as vaccinated people still carry the Sars virus. Ya just can't win for losin'.

even the scientists don’t know WTF is going on yet. So many conflicting ‘scientific’ reports online right now. Time will tell.

Ouch However, those are 'positive tests' - not necessarily people who are ill.. so hopefully isn't as bad as it sounds.

The Ministry of Health said 504 of Friday’s cases involved unvaccinated people, 27 cases involved partially vaccinated people, 442 involved fully vaccinated people and the vaccination status of 58 other cases were not known.

That's not going to happen, because vaccinated people can catch Covid and pass it on...... see my post above..

For the most part, new cases are skewed towards three quaters or two thirds of cases are unvaccinated with the odd day producing more. There still is a clear trend towards unvaccinated contributing to cases still rising, but more importantly the people getting sick/very sick and ending up in hospital are predominantly all unvaccinated.
