What the Booster Jab will NOT do for you & other stories!
Booster done & I’m not looking anything like the image on my post as I pop two Panadols, lounge in my pj’s with my feet up against the heater & type this. Hopefully this shall pass too, in a day or more!
What the Booster Might NOT do for you?
1. It might not stop the virus, but it will make the symptoms milder.
In other words, it might save you a trip to the hospital. That trip could also be one way, with no return, if you are unlucky, and unvaccinated, like many amongst us have been.
Remember, there are pregnant mothers in the hospital who could not get vaccinated & they need you to stay healthy so they can get better health care, and first.
Remember there are people with compromised immune systems who will need urgent health care more than you. The booster might keep you out of the hospital, so…be there for them & take the booster.
2. It might not give you 100% immunity
But it will allow you to travel, participate & lead a relatively normal work & social life – something we all yearn for in the very extended Covid world we live in. So … keep the ‘normal’ alive in your life & for your OWN mental health, take the booster.
3. The booster might not give you lifetime protection
It’s not forever. Currently, my Covid app tells me that it is valid for a year. But I won’t be surprised if a new strain creeps in within the year to change all that.
But, take the booster. It is your one & only line of defence, till a better one comes along. Yeah, I hear they’re testing Viagra as a line of Covid treatment, so there’s always hope!
No we don’t know enough about the virus. No we don’t have all the answers. No we haven’t developed a foolproof line of defence against covid. And no we don’t have a choice.
So just take the Covid booster jab. Stay home, lounge in your pj’s, work from home, and live & let live. Wear a mask, live more & love more!
