    [QUOTE=QuarterMillionMan;n727704]I'll add a financial component to my original question. How much in lost wages might you expect if getting COVID as a result of not getting the booster? For me if I get a mild to moderate COVID infection and have to stay home for 10 days from work, $350 a day x 10 days = $3500 in lost wages. Hospitalization would be a whole different story.[/QUOTE]

    Without a doubt, COVID is the biggest financial topic of our lifetimes. It has impacted every corner of the global economy and continues to do so. It’s touched virtually every industry and devastated several. We’re going to be dealing with the economic effects for a long time.

      Also, even just having COVID symptoms that turn out not to be COVID is a financial issue. For example, your kid gets a fever and cough. They need to stay home from school so a parent needs to stay with them, take them for a COVID test, and wait 2 days for the result before the kid (and parent) can go back.

          [QUOTE=kork13;n727698]Steve, I've not seen clear word anywhere... Is it still the case that once you get one of the vaccines, you need to stick with the same company's formulation for the booster shots?
          [/QUOTE]

          I've been wondering about this, too.

            [QUOTE=rennigade;n727701]Yes, another covid discussion. What exactly does this have to do with finance? Does everyone need to re read the forum rules? This should be in the Everything Else section. Will one of the mods please do your job and move this?[/QUOTE]

            The title of this thread is "Who is getting or got their boosters?" Are you surprised that the discussion is about booster shots and not budgeting or hot stock tips?

            Happily, none of us are obligated to read or participate in any thread which does not interest us.

              I found this article from the wall street journal regarding mixing and matching
              [url]https://www.wsj.com/articles/is-a-moderna-pfizer-or-j-j-covid-19-booster-shot-best-for-you-what-to-know-about-mixing-vaccines-11634823303?mod=series_covidvaccine[/url]
              It may be behind a pay wall, though.
              Here is a clip:

              [I]"The study found that boosting with a different vaccine is safe, and that boosters increased antibody levels no matter the combination.
              “I don’t think there are any losers here,” says Kathryn Edwards, a professor of pediatrics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center who studies vaccines. “Whether you get the same vaccine or a different one, it’s going to boost your immune response.”

              The NIH study looked at antibody levels 15 to 29 days after a booster, says Kirsten Lyke, a professor of medicine at the Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health at the University of Maryland, who is co-chair of the NIH mix-and-match study.[/I]

              [I][B]Which booster combinations work best?[/B]
              In the NIH study, the people with the highest overall antibody levels were those who received the Moderna vaccine for their first two doses and Moderna as a booster. Next came people who got the Pfizer vaccine and a Moderna booster, followed by Moderna and [URL="https://www.wsj.com/articles/covid-19-booster-shots-are-here-and-so-is-the-angst-over-who-gets-one-11632578400?mod=article_inline"]a Pfizer booster[/URL].

              One combination delivered a far-lower antibody boost than the rest: the original one-dose J&J shot followed by another shot of J&J, which boosted antibodies fourfold. By comparison, an original J&J shot followed by a Moderna booster increased antibodies 76-fold, while a Pfizer-BioNTech booster raised them 35-fold."[/I]


              I had Moderna and I recently did a surveillance test that showed I did still have IGg antibodies (though, it didn't measure the level of antibodies). So, I am not sure when I should get my booster. I have a couple of trips planned in the next couple of months to some high density events. (I probably [I]should [/I]do it before I go to the next event.)

                I got a flu shot last week.
                I can't get the covid booster yet.
                6 months since my 2nd shot is still a few weeks away
