I mean, I'm one of those that had a genuinely much better time in lockdown. work from home principally, it led to all sorts of good stuff.

but i know that a lot of other people, specifically NHS and teachers, had a really terrible time.

Is it worth having a booster if you're fairly young and aren't aware of having any health conditions?
I got a booster, but I'm not under the impression it's really necessary in the situation you're describing, which is really the same as mine. Then again, I still don't understand the basics of immunology. My concern is more about my grandmother, and seeing as I don't mind the jabs, I don't really have a reason to avoid them.

I intend to get as many boosters of as many different sorts as possible, and then track down @HMGovt and give him deadly brain prions by shedding mRNA and spike proteins at him, right in his stupid fat face.

Get the booster. The strains of covid circulating are still capable of killing you or giving you a severe illness. If you are unvaccinated or your immunity from vaccination has waned, you are 20% more likely to be hospitalised. Most crucially, your chances of long covid are about 10% if you are fully vaxed, 30% or higher if unvaxed.

Basically, as long as the current phase of unmitigated repeated mass infection continues, the vaccine is the only protection you're gonna get.

I know four people who got it in February, all boosted. Three felt lousy for 3-5 days and are fine, and one has lingering symptoms that she fears could be long covid. It's a numbers game: if you're young and not Immunocompromised, you are probably ok. all depends on how you feel about "probably". chances are you'll be fine, but it's still a chance.

finding it mad to think how totally different the world feels now compared to pre-pandemic, mostly in terms of how people i know seem to be living and acting. also find it mad that it's basically all over with next to no fanfare. i was expecting a good party at least. think that what might happen is that people basically want to forget about it and the memorializing won't happen for a good decade or so.

Gah, it's been going around at the childminder's my little lad goes to, and he's just tested positive.
