But new shots are horrible, horrible. I mean, they give them to us for free. They keep giving us extra protections. Just how many of these horrible things do they think we can we take? The people that have always been at the greatest risk of hospitalization?

Vaccinated people with prior COVID infection had strongest protection during delta, CDC study findsWe have come along way if ABC News can now report prior infection matters, if only a tiny bit. A study, a study, a study... Biden failed on Covid! With his vaccine mandates and restricting treatments like Regeneron. He banned prophylaxis like HCQ and ivermectin. He allowed hundreds of thousands of migrants to flow into our country with Covid, in the middle of a pandemic! He should resign!

CDC warns against travel to 22 destinations over Covid-19CDC advises against travel to 22 nations and territories due to a rising number of Covid-19 cases, including for Israel, Australia, Egypt, Albania, Argentina and Uruguay. Covid is over. Find something else to write about. Panama is on the list, ThePaigeRandall. 😬 Stay safe! 🍹

Against omicron yes (booster). Against delta, infection offers marginally better protection. Take your pick then. В России тоже самое поют.

CDC adds 22 more destinations to COVID-19 'high risk' travel listThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned against travel to 22 nations and territories on Tuesday, amid a surge in COVID-19 cases.

Prior COVID Infection, Vaccines Provided Best Protection During Delta, CDC Study FindsA new study that compares coronavirus protection from prior infection and vaccination concludes getting the shots is still the safest way to prevent COVID-19

CDC: Prior Covid Infection Offered More Protection Against Delta Than Vaccines — But Both Together Did BestWhen the coronavirus’ delta variant surged last year, Americans with immunity from both a Covid-19 vaccine and a previous coronavirus infection were less likely to catch the virus than unvaccinated or uninfected people. Could *natural immunity* be better than a vaccine? The CDC's response to the pandemic has been muddled.

Unvaccinated Americans over 50 were 17 times more likely to end up in the hospital than those who'd had two doses but no boosters in December, according to the data. Why it matters: While no figures were released for Americans under the age of 50, this "first real-world data" on the impact of boosters in the U.S. adds weight to that boosters help prevent severe illness and hospitalization — particularly for older adults, per the NYT.
