      There's no data yet on 4th shot regimens as they've only been around about 6 weeks

        But a 4th shot at least gives a chance to bring the immunity back up after the 3rd shot has mostly worn off, even though it's unknown how long the 4th shot will maintain its effectiveness.

            No! I coined it myself. Of course someone else may have said it before but I thought it up all by my (Breathe in from the stomach...) self.

                Was turned down for 4th shot because my first shot was J&J and that counted as 2. In spite of the fact that it's viewed as the weakest of the vaccines.

                      I am sorry to say that I am in the hospital recovering from pneumonia and unable to assemble the monthly update for July 1st from my hospital bed. Hope to have an update on August 1st.

                      I am on the mend and still hope to make it to the WC.

                            • 3 types of long COVID?



                              Comment


                              • Emerging evidence suggests that catching the coronavirus a second time can heighten long-term health risks, a worrisome development as the circulation of increasingly contagious Omicron subvariants leads to greater numbers of Californians being reinfected.

                                Earlier in the pandemic, it was assumed that getting infected afforded some degree of lasting protection, for perhaps a few months.

                                As the coronavirus mutates, though, that’s no longer a given. And each individual infection carries the risk not only for acute illness but the potential to develop long COVID.

                                “The additive risk is really not trivial, not insignificant. It’s really substantial,” said Dr. Ziyad Al-Aly, clinical epidemiologist at Washington University in St. Louis and chief of research and development at the Veterans Affairs St. Louis Healthcare System.

                                According to a preprint study examining U.S. veterans, of which Al-Aly was the lead author, getting infected twice or more “contributes to additional risks of all-cause mortality, hospitalization and adverse health outcomes” in various organ systems, and can additionally worsen risk for diabetes, fatigue and mental health disorders.
