I hope you're doing well!
As you all may have heard, there has been discussion both in the US and in other countries about a COVID-19 vaccine booster vaccine to be potentially launched in the fall, as cases of the Delta variant escalate around the globe. The CDC has not yet taken a firm stance on necessity of a booster dose, as researchers are still gathering information and learning more about:
- long-lasting protection of the different vaccines,
- protection against COVID variants, and
- further protecting those who may be immunocompromised.
What do you all think about this news? If you were offered a booster shot would you go for it? Do you have any concerns about an additional shot?
Feel free to discuss here!

I probably would just because I have one of those conditions that put me at a higher risk of catching covid.

I really am not sure I will take it. I tend to lean not to.

I am proactively watching the developments and hopefully soon a direction of the CDC. Without proper knowledge on the subject of infectious diseases, I rely on what is most likely the most scientifically based resource. This is including their assessment of the under vaccinated regions in the USA and the world.

I get a flu shot every year. No sweat getting a Covid booster too.
