Moderna are developing a single-dose booster shot for Covid and flu. I expect we'll be seeing more of this, and it being rolled into a single jab (largely for the elderly and immune compromised) making it less of an 'event' than getting a the jab currently is. Where people actually want both anyway.

The government are ramping up the BS in the build up to October & November. More predictions and ‘scenarios’ of wild guesses and wide ranges of numbers in hospital and threats of masks returning. And that’s after ruling out a lockdown while not ruling out a lockdown in the same sentence. Half or more will ignore this rubbish and carry on behind closed doors.

Make sure you get your flu jabs this year! I caught a common cold for the first time in ages and it was aggressive. Don't want to know what getting flu could be like with diminished immunity. COVID will be more of a capacity problem this winter rather than a serious health issue like last time around, but flu could push the NHS over the edge. I think the 'regular' ailments will be the problem this winter, much less COVID.

Did you know? 95% of people are morons.

Which age do people think adults should have the flu jab?

Ah missed this. Makes total sense – will simply become part of the annual routine.

Good question

NHS gives fre jabs to 50 and over, so on that basis, probably the target audience is 50+. But lot's of marketing focused on younger people too... and with low resistance because of lockdowns it would make sense for most people to consider getting one IMO.

Enjoy your upcoming booster shot.

The vaccine is not safe.

How many more times?

The way it appears its being implemented certainly isn't how I would approach it. Families will have to deal with the realities of the situation; yes I can imagine in some cases it will cause problems. The government appear happy to create that conundrum for people.

The booster might flatten the curve. (Joke)

So, out of curiosity, will you be having the booster, much in the same way that you had the previous two jabs?

I've been out so much post lockdown(s) that I must have practically repeatedly bathed in covid at this point. I'd probably be better off eating to Boost than having a booster.
