Changed the title to fit subject.
I certainly think COVID is not going away. It will be interesting in the fall to see how flu and COVID vaccinations compare in terms of people's willingness to get one or both. The campaign against the mRNA COVID vaccines exceeded anything that ever occurred against the flu vaccine. One hopes some of that animosity has died down but I doubt it.
BTW, I did get my bivalent booster in April on the theory that every new strain needs a prime and a boost. My local CVS said there has been moderately good uptake of second bivalent shots. They serve the Moderna variety.
