CORONAVIRUS INFO PROVIDED BY DR. JIM HARRIS –1/10/2022
”…In October, the agency said those immunocompromised people could receive a booster shot — a fourth dose of vaccine, six months after their third dose. These guidelines were consistent with its recommendation for other adults…Last week, hoping to stem the surge of infections with the highly contagious Omicron variant, the C.D.C. shortened that interval to five months for a booster shot for Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna recipients.
J. Harris: Lately, the NEW YORK TIMES is consistently the best source of news that I can find. A couple of years ago, I could beat the NYT and the JOHNS HOPKINS to new covid information by keeping up with several weekly and monthly medical jouranls. I can’t any more. Local papers, area papers, and Texas Tribune have been helpful but the NYT beaths them all in my opinion. Papers in Washington, DC, Houston, Dallas, and LA are also helpful. I don’t know how to rate the East Texas papers, but they are probably semi-adequate in Covid coverage. NPR RADIO is also a fabulous source and not infrequently they beat the NYT to stories.
You can subscribe to the NYT for $1.00 a week and stay well informed, including local county and state information. You don’t have to read the opinion pieces. I rarely do. Their sports coverage is also comprehensive.
“Texas Covid Data” published daily by The Texas Health and Hunam Services Dept. and only about 2 days behind has great stats. The State of Tesas has also done a great job of publicizing Covid information as well as statistics as has Johns Hopkins University.

”Like any honeymoon, though, this one is necessarily transient. (And, to be clear, infections are still never something to be sought out.) No combinations of vaccines or viruses can confer invulnerability to future tussles with SARS-CoV-2. Whether acquired from an injection or an infection, immunity will always work in degrees, not absolutes. (AUDIO ALSO)
