Boosted again

June 22, 2022 - 10:28 -- Admin

I went to my local GP and received my second booster (Pfizer again) at lunchtime yesterday, after having received my first booster in the middle of January1. It was touch and go whether I would be able to make it, after having been as sick as a dog for a fair proportion of he last month; first with a virus, followed by a secondary bacterial infection; then with another virus which stopped me eating much for a few days. However, the last viral hell lasted a week (two rapid antigen tests were both negative for Covid-19), but I was out of it in time for the appointment for the booster.

It is mandatory to wear a mask when entering the doctor’s practice. This is no great problem for me as I wear a mask everywhere in indoor public spaces. I do this because I am not a halfwit, and because I realise that anyone who believes that we are through ‘the pandemic’ doesn’t know what they are talking about, with three quarters of Australian deaths from Covid-19 having occurred in the last 6 months2, and only one quarter in the previous two years. To protect yourself and your fellow Australians, wear a mask when you are indoors in public places.
