Anyway, back on topic, has anybody already taken the booster shots? I though the optimal waiting time between the last shot and the booster was 3 months?

“That interval could be as short as four months, but generally speaking, a six-month interval is probably best,” said  Stanley Plotkin, a veteran vaccinologist and emeritus professor of pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

Ah yes, you're right. I *should* have said "the Korean government is pushing 3 months between the last shot and the first booster".

I received a booster shot in late November, about 5 months after initially getting vaccinated.

That link is somewhat dated in that Omicron was designated a variant of concern two days later.
South Korea seems to be on the same page as the UK in recommending a 3rd dose after 3months.

Yup. Booked it last week and got it. Everything went smoothly. Glad I didn't dawdle. Ol DeMart sensed there might be a run on things and wants to be one of the anointed few who can drink in public at a reasonable hour like 10 PM or 9AM.

Is it " giving you sick days" or "requiring you to take 3 of your allotted sick days"?

I mean, my shoulder is a little sore but nothing to write home about, and certainly nothing to stay home about... as of yet.

I get an extra 3 days vacation, essentially. And I never use sick days cuz I'm a healthy boy. heh The school is telling all the teachers they get 3 days off.

No skin off my back. Bring on the extra time not deskwarming.

Wow, that's nice.

I never missed a single class due to illness in 13+ years in Korea.

However, last month, I slipped and fell on my shoulder and used 8 of my 15 sick days for the surgery and recovery.

So...

You can simply post it as this-

"Here is one woman's reaction to the vaccine. In my OPINION, reactions such as hers should be taken into consideration when making policy. It is POSSIBLE that we are not being cautious enough in testing and preventing adverse reactions when distributing the vaccines. "

What you can't do- "This woman's sickness PROVES the vaccine is dangerous and does not work. This PROVES that it shouldn't be administered and it isn't working. This PROVES there is a coverup."

Why? It doesn't PROVE any of that.

It's not an opinion that she's in a hospital bed nor is it an opinion what others are reporting in the other video happened to them.  Facts don't care about my opinion or yours.  Their experiences and reactions don't fit your narrative.  I guess you have to ignore it and use a vague term like 'misinformation' in order to dismiss it.

Looks like this hankook character has been up to his monkey business again.
I thought we were cracking down on this QAnon, conspiracy theory garbage?

ABC News channel 4 local news is Qanon now?  Not too smart are you?

That's no good Mr C. I also hope you're doing okay. I thought you had disappeared for a number of days a few weeks back. Not that I'm watching carefully  :wink: ;D

Dang, hope you're feeling better, Mr. C!! Health and Prosperity to you in the new year.

Thanks, gents!
