Well I was pretty much 90% recovered after 4 days, and my wife/inlaws just had a nagging cough as their worst symptoms, so I have the vaccines to thank for that

It hasn't really stopped, just media coverage is no longer on how many people have gotten it.

Yup, still very much a thing, and it's hitting people that have already had it, as well as those who have lucked out (or didn't know they had it in the past).

I started wearing my mask again in places with lots of people, and was kinda surprised to see a decent number of people at Langley Costco today masked up.

Not saying its ever stopped, was asking if anybody else has noticed a possible spike above average.

To your point it's no longer tracked or reported provincially, so just have to go by anecdotal data.

Got the Bivalent vaccine a couple of days ago. No appointment needed. Just called up the local Shoppers to see it they had it. Medical Card was all I needed. I got the invite early last week, but did a little research on it before deciding to go.

A little sore where they stabbed me. Okay, more than a little sore, but I'll survive. No other side effects, yet.

released last week................For those who are eligible, I think the Rule of Costco applies. Get the Bivalent now, worry about it later. I have this feeling they might run out and you'll just get the normal booster shot.

I could have received my second booster long ago, but waited until the vaccine that targeted Omicron got approved.

How is the flu situation over there? We haven't had a flu season in 3 years, and they're saying now that people should get vaccinated for that even if they haven't in the past, because most of the population will be very susceptible to it now.

A LOT of people have had it twice.

I got old school ‘rona in January which was not fun. Then in the summer I got one of the pussy new variants. Woke up with a slight tickle in the throat (which went away mid day), test was positive. Had to waste an entire week of vacation sitting at home feeling 99.999% fine.

-just got my fourth jab yesterday afternoon. Bivalent Moderna for better protection against Omicron.

The Croatian Cultural Centre in east Van was LIT yesterday. -fortunate to find a parking spot in their lot.

Then I find out from a lady inside the centre about why the place was so busy. She directs people to the right line up for vaccinations.

"Vaccine, -left side, Bingo - right side". It was Bingo Night at the Croatian Cultural Centre yesterday.

No wonder the parking lot was almost full yesterday. I was thinking that there is no way that there are that many people getting a booster shot on a Wednesday afternoon after 4pm haha.

NOTE: The nurse who administered the BV Moderna vaccine for me said that some people experience myocardial pain, chest pain, as a bad side effect of getting BV Moderna. -best to get yourself checked out at a hospital if you feel chest pain should you take a booster shot of BV Moderna.

I don't know if or how many times I've had it. I've never actually ever bothered testing myself.

My kid tested positive on a rapid test once last year I think, wife and I never got any symptoms maybe we had it, just asymptomatically I dunno.

And then last Easter my parents were visiting and my dad developed symptoms (he had a cough and phlegm like a cold), and confirmed positive with a rapid test. I think I had a bit of congestion for a day or two, so I figured I must have had it for sure then. It was pretty mild.

non issue. i think i had a bit of a fever through the night on saturday, but I was also pretty hammered so there's that.

all side effects can be eclipsed by the appropriate hangover

covid side was more sore than flu side day on day 2. day 3 (today) can't feel either one.

Yup, the chip is in my arm already.

Pharmacist asked me if I prefer Moderna or Pfizer ... I've been Pfizer all along so why put another chip in my body?!

Yup instead of gradually changing the rules to handle a slowly increasing hospital load, they just let all hell break loose after pointlessly trying to keep it to 0 cases all along

They don't even test anymore, but Beijing alone is probably more than 50% infected.. 10 million people.. Most will be fine with this strain, but elderly are still very susceptible and hospitals will be completely fucked. Crematoriums are already overloaded so bodies will be piling up in huge numbers

Of course they're lifting rules here too, and are talking about opening the border to China right when this is all happening
