Haven't caught it, and never will.

Saying that is just tempting irony.

My son and his gf got it a second time in August from the workplace. Thankfully their symptoms were mild. Ironically, they just flew to San Diego on Saturday to get away from it all and they are facing Hurricane Kay! Oh well.

I've not had it so far, but about the half the population of South Korea -where I live- has had it. Probably a lot more have had it as people started getting tested less when symptoms were mild.

At least I think I haven't had it unless I was symptomless. I've had quite a few tests but never because of any symptoms. I haven't had a cold or flu since late 2019! The closest I probably came was on a trip home to Australia in June when I saw Top Gun in a theater with my nephew who tested positive a few days later. His mum had had it, so we masked up, and I tested negative soon afterwards and a week later for my flight back to Korea. Not a lot of mask compliance in Australia, but in Korea everyone masks up indoors. We had to wear masks outside as well until a few months ago. Still a lot of people wear them outside - it saves taking them on and off if you're going inside and outside often. I feel pretty naked without a mask. I've gotten used to working out in my gym with a mask on - well I got used to that about two years ago. Just I'm not doing any cardio anymore inside. More walking and a little jogging outside instead of the treadmill... and I'm enjoying being outside more.

Up until last week I'd managed to dodge it. Last Thursday evening I felt absolutely terrible so did a LFT on the offchance and lo and behold it came up positive; I tested again yesterday evening (Friday - eight days later) and it still came out positive though I mostly feel perfectly alright now. Hopefully I'll be clear by Monday.

Neither I nor my hubby have contracted COVID. However, quite a few of my extended family has.

One of my friends has a father who got it, and it tore up one of his lungs. He's had the lung removed, and is on the wait list for a transplant even now.

We're supposed to have a brutal flu season this year, so just a heads-up guys.smileFor those interested you can get a flu shot the same time as a Covid shot, different arms preferably.

I haven't had it yet, but my sister died of covid immediately prior to vaccines becoming available, and after being intubated for a week. She was 59 and lived in London.

I had it in March of 2020; I kept thinking I'd have breathing problems & have to rush to the ER, but thankfully apart from some minor complications it departed. Then my grandmother died from it a month later, in the assisted care facility she was at.

My case was no big deal, but thinking about everyone who had to die away from their loved ones in wards was heartbreaking. I hope we turn the page on covid & don't have to repeat it again.

Basil, I'm so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sympathy.

We got the new bivalent vaccine over the weekend. I feel very fortunate. We received the Pfizer after receiving the Moderna series originally. It seemed to have fewer side effects than the first 4 shots. Since we've not had COVID as yet, I'm hoping this lessens the symptoms of it if we do get it.

I'm glad you got the new vaccine too!smileMy parents and I both got the Moderna bivalent vaccine which made me sick the next day, but my parents were fine. I was only sick for a day and then I was fine. Remember the vaccine takes two weeks for full affect.

Are the new vaccines still "free" for the patient? I need to get the updated vaccine. There's way to many people getting Covid at this late date and we no longer have a mask policy at work. Thanks to political and corporate pressure it seems we're done caring about the pandemic. If you get sick you get sick. Your loss. Ive had co-workers get it twice, not only has it greatly short staffed us on the floor at work, those co-workers have gone thru all their PTO's thru no fault of their own.

My husband and I got our new Covid boosters yesterday. We were not charged. We had no reactions except for a sore arm. This new booster that is suppose help with the variants makes me more comfortable with traveling.

Solium, we were not charged. They took our insurance info as standard procedure but I believe all are still free. Our COVID time was taken away from us last year so we're in the same boat.

I'm still (knocks on wood) Covid-free and found this article quite an interesting read:

Oo, just got an email from NHS Direct inviting me to book the latest jab, which I've just done for next Friday.
