Looking forward:

Vaccines 2.0: Next generation COVID shots will be cheaper, easier to deliver and protect against more viruses, industry leaders say.

It's a rather long article, and I've only pasted in the very first part - but very interesting - on what the expected covid booster shots will be and developing vaccines that can be inhaled, cone in pill form and do not require the rigid cold storage that today's vaccines require. Good news for the ability to get vaccinations out worldwide.

The COVID-19 vaccines are among the best ever created. They're safe and more than 90% effective at preventing any disease, and even more so at blocking serious illness and death.

Now drug companies are trying to make them even better.

Some future shots will be more effective against certain variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Others are aiming to cover several types of severe respiratory viruses, including the first SARS, which caused outbreaks between 2002 and 2004, or even all viruses in the larger coronavirus family.

Companies are testing vaccines that won't need to be kept cold, won't require two shots, will have fewer side effects, can be produced more efficiently and can be delivered without needles to make them easier to provide in rural areas and the developing world.

"There's a long history within vaccinology of second-generation vaccines being multiply improved over first-generation vaccines. That's just the way things go," said Scot Roberts, chief scientific officer of Altimmune, a biotech based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, that is developing an inhaled vaccine.

None of these second-generation COVID-19 vaccines will be ready until at least later this summer, and many, including Altimmune's, not until early next year at the soonest. No single vaccine will have all the desired attributes, a number of experts said.

But with potentially every one of Earth's nearly 8 billion inhabitants needing one or two initial doses and potentially boosters, there's plenty of room for different approaches, a number of experts said.

"Depth and breadth" is what vaccinologist, pharmacist, and public-health leader John Grabenstein said he wants in a second-generation vaccine. He expects protection against a number of different variants and respiratory diseases and, ideally, a decade or more between shots.

The jury is still out on how long the current vaccines will last Ė or whether we'll even need boosters at all, said Scott Hensley, a viral immunologist at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. "Time will tell," he said.

Finally, today my year of birth was in line for making a vaccination appointment. I did not contact my GP before for left over vaccines. In addition, I do not work in a specific profession and / or I have no medical indication to qualify for vaccination earlier. Over about 2 weeks I will have my 1st shot.

For the previous (birth)years they mentioned which shots were used, but I missed it for the last 4 ŗ 5 years. As it are 2 shots and no Astra Zeneca, it will be Modena or Pfizer. My 2nd shot is about 6 weeks after the 1st one, at the end of July (the 21st)

I had the Pfizer and mercifully had no issues other than a sore arm.

What I am finding interesting here in Oz is that as my GP isn't involved in the roll-out I had a choice of trying to get to the mass hub (about 20 minutes away by public transport) or going to a different GP. My lung specialist recommended a GP who is insisting on a full medical before giving me a jab. When I asked 'why when the hubs don't require that' his reply made sense. 'They are relying on people actually knowing/remembering all their medical conditions whereas I prefer to have the most up to date results before giving a vaccine to a new patient. I would do the same if it was the flu.'

Does this mean that  youíre paying for a consultation to get the free jab? My doctor is seeing all the jab patients and must be bulk-billing, because I wasnít charged Ö

No - he his bulk-billing for the consultation and the jab but he is concerned at the lack of proper medical checks before the mass vaccine roll-out fearing people may be getting the wrong shot due to a condition they have forgotten they have/had or don't know they have.

I think the GP route is the way to go if you can ... the mass vaccination places donít ask the questions .... if you need to use one of them talk to your GP first

Finally worked up the will and got my first vaccine (Moderna) Oh boy was I panicking before the shot, ended up not being that bad  Tongue I was one of 2 on my mothers side of the family who had yet to get theirs while my fathers side of the family are conspiracy loving, anti-vax folks so only a few people had theirs. Now that my nana is being placed into a nursing home they are going to get it. Of course a specific aunt of mine who thinks the world revolves around her refuses. She actually moved to FL during the pandemic because she was sick of all the mask rules etc. here in my state. She really thinks that they would heed to her demands go and grab my nana from her room and bring her to her car so she can see her when she visits this July if they dont allow her in the facility.  Roll Eyes

Of course I had expected a reaction to the vaccination (with Pfizer). But during and right after the injection I had no or hardly any problems. Over time, however, my arm became more painful, which is radiating towards the rest of the arm and shoulder, and the upperlimb got stiffer. Sing it out for a while, this arm will return to 'normal'.

Arm pain is really common! Mine was worse with the first dose and probably started improving around the third day, so hang in there. Glad you were able to get it!
