There Once Was a Very Wise Old Rooster

There once was a very wise old rooster
Who decided to go for his Covid booster.
, But when he got there
A young nurse named Claire
Said, “this booster is not meant for you rooster!”

(I went for my Covid booster yesterday and, strange to say, not a rooster was in sight.

To be serious for a moment, if you are eligible for a booster, and have not yet had it, I would urge you to do so. The vaccine is helping to keep us all safe. Yes it doesn’t offer absolute protection, but we are now in a much better position than we where prior to the introduction of Covid vaccines).

      I agree with you. I recently had a conversation with a lady who said the vaccine had been rushed (most vaccines she said take around 10 years to approve. She then went on to ask whether I worried about being chipped, to which I responded “no!”. One might argue the vaccine has been rushed. However more money was thrown at Covid vaccines than any other vaccine, hence I feel safe in taking it. As for the second argument, it is, obviously bonkers and not worth engaging in. Best. Kevin

      I have a slightly sore arm but nothing to make a fuss about. Also I had a headache this morning. I had drunk 1 can of Fosters which hardly constitutes a hangover, so I guess it might have been something to do with the vaccine, but it could equally have been down to broken sleep. I hope you didn’t have any side effects when you had your booster, Chris? Best wishes. Kevin

    I was okay, only a sore arm and fatigue for one day, but my poor wife had headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, interrupted sleep, fuzziness and loss of appetite for four days – thankfully she’s now much better, but still feeling a bit weak.

      I’m pleased to hear that you where okay, Chris. But I’m sorry to hear about your wife. I’m glad to know that she is now much better. Its interesting how the vaccine impacts people in different ways. My friend Andrew felt light headed after receiving his booster. In fact he compared it to the feeling one gets when drunk! Kevin

        Oh yes, Kevin! There are now a lot of Christmas markets canceled, because more and more vaccined people also had got the virus again. It seems we got the wrong vaccine, or the virus has built a special German version. However, we will manage it. xx Michael

      I’m sorry to read about the cancellation of the Christmas markets. I’m sure you will manage the situation in Germany. Here in the UK Germans have a reputation for being very efficient! Best wishes. Kevin
