"As of Nov. 3, just 13.3% of state residents have received an updated COVID booster, which targets two subvariants of the omicron variant as well as the original strain of the virus."

"The booster is currently available to everyone ages 5 and up who received their last vaccine dose at least five months prior."

^ It's no wonder the percentage for the subsequent Omicron vaccinations is low.

Following the two initial COVID vaccinations which are spaced about a month apart, the boosters are supposed to be administered every 6 months.

For those who got a #4 COVID booster this past summer of 2022, six months away is around January 2023.

Just an observation,

Since OPERATION WARP SPEED is over, the vaccines are not going to be updated fast enough for the likely 1200 variants wee will have in March 2023.

So we are back to square one or worse regarding Covid, it has so many changes now that there is NO WAY to vaccinate ourselves from constant waves of infection.

The damages are already to severe to even calculate. As much a 9.5 Million peopled disabled, others never ever going top perform the same again. The current labor shortages WILL continue so even if the FED keeps increasing the rates, inflation is not controllable when you have such a radical drop of production with no ability to control demand on many kinds of markets, like energy, food, and medicine.

This WILL force no business to be able to borrow money to pay workers, so that business model is DEAD. The world will have to earn as they go. And acquiring any kind of ROI above Inflation rates will NEVER occur again.

I just saw a video about a Microsoft Azure engineer being laid off. That is the only growth part of the Microsoft Enterprise brand, they use it to establish fault tolerant management of Microsoft networks. The fact that those jobs are dropping means Microsoft is about to fall off a cliff. And that is nothing compared to Meta, Twitter, Alphabet, and others.

Could the masking and social isolation of children over time lead to an inadequately developed immune system, putting them at greater risk in the long term?
