Ryan Matsumoto I’m eligible for a Pfizer booster starting tomorrow. Is it the optimal decision to get it immediately, or is there a case for waiting 10 days to see if mix & match with Moderna is better? (I’ve heard Moderna has lower breakthrough %, but the booster may equalize).
Gregg Brazinsky This sounds like promising news. Let’s hope it can be combined with more new vaccine mandates and more vigorous enforcement of those mandates already in existence. Covid can be eradicated through vaccinations!
