We Are Not There Yet!

The debate rages on, vaccinate, don’t vaccinate, isolate, don’t isolate, quarantine, don’t quarantine and oh, by the way, what’s the difference?! Just as we thought we had turned the corner, bring on Delta and now the newest variant Lambda! The experts are not clear on what impact these new variants will have on life as we know it however one thing that everyone agrees on is that vaccinations are a must!

Everything published to date points in the direction of everyone being in a “safer place” when vaccinated. Statistically, it proves to be true as in the month of July in the state of Massachusetts, there were 7,737 breakthrough infections among 4.3 million fully vaccinated people. The numbers tell the story, if you are vaccinated you are more than likely in a “safe place” for now.

However, there has been some research done recently where some “experts” are predicting that by fall, those fully vaccinated may need a booster to maintain full immunity. I don’t know about you, my sleeve is rolled up and I’m ready to get jabbed. If a booster will give me a “boost” in immunity I’m all for it. Think about the flu season coming up, we could be looking at the perfect storm. Don’t play around with your health, you could be putting yourself and your loved ones at risk. Stay well, stay informed and stay tuned!
