When we told them that we have had 4 shots, they ask if the pain was the same every time. They were also surprised that there was no cost for the shots.

I was gonna ask, were there barriers to them getting the shots in Ukraine?

It sounds like it. One shot seems to be the norm for adults up until the war started. Sounds like the second round was coming out this summer. Also sounds like if your job required you to travel you could get another shot. Children under 12 not a priority. Sounds like they were not getting Pfizer or Moderna.

OK, 4th shot (second booster) done.

AZ, AZ, pF, Novavax.

Yes, went for a third modality of vaccine for this booster against general recommendation, but my research seems to show that a heterologous vaccine strategy is preferred in just about every vaccine protocol that came before COVID, and the limited studies done suggest it continues for COVID. 

Can't get any more heterologous than the 3 different vaccine modalities I now have on board.

Plus, Novavax has has some really good stats on prevention of the variants without any reduction of the bad outcome protection.

Not sure why it hasn't gotten more press, for those wary of the mRNA vaccines, this is an actual better option.  For the currently unvaxxed, this vaccine should be used as a silver bullet to calm their fears of microchips, or DNA alteration.

Mother-in-law tested positive for Covid. This is no surprise to me. The lady believes just because your vaccinated your good to go. So claims she does go anywhere. But 87 she is pretty active. Bingo on Monday, coffee group on Tuesday, grocery shopping on Wednesday, breakfast group on Thursdays, Friday is card club.

Started with a runny noise, then she thought she had a stomach flu, then a headache. Now she is very tired and sleeps a lot. No one from are family has had an in person visit with her in about 10 day. However my sister-in-law, saw her last weekend.

4 days later and she can hardly get out off bed to go to the washroom. Very tired and a super bad headache. Doesn't feel like eating. She claims in her 87 years she has never felt like this.

Vegas, air travel and the World Series of Poker are all outbreak / superspreader situations.  So, I cancelled my trip.  Even forple vaxxed and fully stocked with N95 masks, its just not worth the risk.

Still hearing tons of people getting it, still having suppliers being behind on fulfillment due to staff shortages with people off with COVID... this is not over.  It is not as bad as when Delta ripped through, but it can still be deadly, or almost as bad, cause long term effects,,,

KEY POINTS
- Compared with the other Group of 10 (G10) countries, Canada performed better than most in terms of percentage of the population receiving 2 doses of a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, and on measures assessing the direct effect of the pandemic: number of people infected, number who died from COVID-19 and total excess deaths.

- People in Canada experienced some of the most restrictive public health measures across a broad range of domains, including restrictions on public gatherings and school closures.

- Canada's economy showed similar growth in inflation and public indebtedness, but weaker gross domestic product growth than other countries.

- As Canada enters the third year of the pandemic, government and public health leaders should inform the public about the nation's successes and ongoing challenges, shape expectations regarding pandemic control measures that may be necessary in the months ahead, and focus public health restrictions on those that remain essential to contain spread of SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Cancelling the trip=good idea.
With all the flight delays and cancellations boarding a flight is a huge risk. The entire air travel industry is a joke right now.
